    Safari problems
    Hi,
    I’ve just started getting problems with Safari on my iMac.
    1. The ‘add bookmark' icon to the left of the address bar (a button with a ‘+’ sign on it) has disappeared from view. But, if I click on the space where it used to be, the drop-down menu appears. And it’s not in the ‘customise toolbar’ drop-down either. All the other icons are still there and functioning.
    2. More worryingly, in Safari preferences, the ‘privacy’ tab has gone too. I use this often to clear cookies, etc, as they tend to slow Safari down.
    This seems to have happened only since I did the last software update, but that could be coincidence.
    Any ideas?

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    I'm using the latest version (5.1.4) on the latest Lion (10.7.3) and the bookmark button isn't there for me either, but you can put it back by visiting the "Customize Toolbar" option under the View menu.

    As for the Privacy tab, mine's still there. Check to make sure you're not running Safari in 32-bit mode (get info on the application, look for the 32-bit checkbox). If it's checked, try un-checking it. That's how I fixed a YouTube issue in Safari with the latest version.

    Hi,
    thanks for that; unfortunately, it isn’t in the ‘customise toolbar’ drop-down either.
    I’m running Version 5.0.5 on Snow Leopard, if that’s important.

    Hi,
    well, I’ve solved this myself.
    Solution: move Safari to trash. Download safari from Apple, All glitches gone.
    Weird.
