How do I stop safari to keep asking me if I want to resend a form or not. It gets real annoying. If I'm on a site like kijiji and look at full size pictures of an item, when I click to go back to the item description it always asks me if I want to resend the form. This never used to happen until about six months ago. Its getting real annoying. Is there a way I can turn this off? I looked in my safari preferences and there is nothing in there.

It's been happening in my Safari for the last 2 years at least. No, there is no way to turn it off that I've found. It's the only browser that does this of the 5 browsers I use. I agree, it is a royal pitr.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

As a suggestion, find all cookies related to kijiji and delete them. Then, when reentering the site, be selective about which cookies you accept; or accept none at all. The site may require cookies for secure transactions however. Trial and error will soon enough tell you.

Bobtomay - does adjusting the Prefs as shown in the attachment not change the secure form, in particular the javascript, which I believe is controlling the sending and receiving.

To Pilsner - bobtomay uses several browsers. May I suggest that you use 'horses for courses', and change to a browser like FFox or Camino for the kijiji site. The world doesn't begin and end with Safari.
