Preferences Corrupted? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Ok here we go...

OmniWeb 5.5 registered copy - downloaded today. It is running with a Personal license on a Mac Mini (spec's below) and a PowerBook G4. Both Preference configuration are exactly the same.

Preferences file corrupted?

1) Even though “Tab drawer opens on the: right” is set, the Tab drawer will not open up on the Right. If I play around with it enough it will work for that session, but will not work when OW is started again. This is only happening on a Mac Mini, and not on the PowerBook.

2) Preferences "Start page: Empty". OW still brings up a bunch of tabs on startup (Apple sites). This is only happening on a Mac Mini, and not on a PowerBook.

3) Edit Save Applications List…
Will not except added programs such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel (Office 2004) but will accept Adobe programs (Illustrator). This is happening on both computers.

Hardware Overview:

Machine Name: Mac mini
Machine Model: PowerMac10,1
CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (1.2)
Number Of CPUs: 1
CPU Speed: 1.42 GHz
L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB
Memory: 1 GB
Bus Speed: 167 MHz
Boot ROM Version: 4.8.9f4

Thank you.
2 sounds like a saved snapshot in your workspace.
1 might be as well...

it looks like the Defaultowworkspace file was corrupted. I also removed two Apple.html files from the BookmarksFolder.

It seems to work now. What an installation!

Case closed.

Thanks Len.
