Internet Explorer 5.2.3 forgetting preferences on MacOS X 10.2.8

Discussion in 'Apple' started by Michael Vilain, Oct 19, 2003.

  1. Ever since I upgraded to 10.2.8, IE won't keep it's preferences. Once I
    quit, they're gone. Permissions seem OK. Nothing on the MicroSloth
    Site (I'm shocked!).

    Anyone else see this?

  3. Yes, I had the very same problem.
    I switched to Safari!

  4. I have the problem too with 5.2.2.
    Someone suggested deleting "internet preferences."
    Now I only lose some of them. Most importantly, my autofill form.
    The "no animated gif," and "don't use plugins" have stayed.
    I tried Safari and it seems nice for an infant, I can't stand to have
    things moving on the page. It has no provision for making the choices
    mentioned above. Also my TV guide page is scrunched up in Safari.

    I'll wait a bit and try it after a few upgrades.

  5. I saw this behavior before I upgraded to 10.2.8. Now everything is
    wiped after I logout and log back in. I'm keeping IE around because 80%
    of the hits on my web sites are IE. So I code standard HTML/PHP and see
    what it looks like in IE and adjust accordingly. I switch to Safari for
    daily use, but this problem is annoying.

    Thanks for confirming that Microsoft is keeping up with their
