View Full Version : Safari 'link details' help
02-07-2007, 05:13 PM
Whenever I mouse over a link in safari a yellow box appears showing the url.
This is becoming a major annoyance. Does anyone know how I can disable this?

This is an annoying feature. The link detail is listed at the bottom of the browser window and the pop-up just gets in the way of things. Anyone at all know how to remove this "functionality"?

Do I need to do it as root? I did it via su (I know, I know, should have used sudo) but it doesn't appear to have done anything other than change the color to white (vice yellow)

This is a setting that you want to change for your user account - hence you run the 'defaults' command as your user. (No 'su' or 'sudo')

For some reason I had thought that it was something that needed to be done globally. But as you pointed out, nope. It works now. Thanks for the help. :)
