    I amInteresting, I posted something, but I cannot see what I am typing in the box. I have been missing around here for the last 6 months or so because my mac will not type in the message box and I rarely use my pc anymore b/c it has no battery life. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Forgive my misspellings or typos please....

    If you've set A to Z to keep you logged in, try logging out and logging back in. This isn't a problem I've had on A to Z, but it is something that's shown up elsewhere.

    Throw your safri in the trash then reboot. It should rebuild its self and repair it. If that fails to work, create a new user account and test the new user. Here you want to see if the issue is system wide or just user based. If system wide then you need to format and reinstall your Mac OS X. If it is user account only then throwing safri away should fix the issue, However, if it fails after severl attempts, make a new user account and move everything over to the new user and then remove the old account once everything is moved over.

    The next thing is you want to figure out how safri got messed up. Number of things; virus, spyware, kids playing with machine, user error or unknown. You need to think hard who it worked for last and the last thing u did before it stopped working. If the issue was completely raondom consider virus or spyware. Also know this Mac users, Just because the sales guy said Macs dont get viruses does not mean that is true because they can and do. To make a Mac virus requires a little more work then making one for a PC but can be done rather easly for a mac. On that note from all the windows users. Welcome to our world lol

    I have been using three different macs and none of them allow me to post on here. I will try tossing Safari and rebooting.
