    Thanks for the tip about Safari and the advanced tab with per site access controls for plug-ins. I would never have found these without your tip. This change also applies to Safari 6.1 on Mountain Lion. After a Safari update I found that access I needed to a document sharing facility for work not longer allowed me to copy documents to my Mac. It uses a Java (yes Java, not Javascript) plug-in and the changes in Safari prevent Java from saving files to the local filestore. Running in unsafe mode on this site allows it to work.

    I’ve also got problems with the British Ordnance Survey site where I have an account that allows printing of maps. But that facility uses SIlverlight and the printing no longer works from Safari. Changing the permissions for Silverlight on the site doesn’t seem to make that work. I can use it via Firefox, but the printing in firefox is awful and the map either ends up split over pages or is severely reduced in size, whereas the printing from Safari was good. I’ll have to work that some more.

    I haven’t dared update to Mavericks yet as I know I have a number of applications that don’t function properly. While my iMac could be updated (but for the applications), my MacBook is too old to run anything more modern than Lion.

    A small correction to the above. The settings in Safari 6.1 on Mountain Lion are on the Security tab in Preferences, and then in Manage Website Settingsā€¦.
