    Default Safari won't save Home page designation

    I've tried changing my home page to [url]www.[/url] in "Preferences" and it
    stays that way until I exit and re-start, after which it goes back to the
    default home page ([url]http://home.netscape.com/apple.adp[/url]). Is there any way to
    change it permanently, or is this an Apple marketing gimmick?

    For what it's worth, I don't have that problem. Maybe try going to
    and selecting "current page" might work. I've never had a
    problem with this feature with any of the Safari betas or the current
    1.0.

    Tried that, without success. Could there be some kind of preferences file
    that's gotten contaminated?

    I had a similar problem -- for some reason it took several attempts to
    select a custom homepage that would stick, but after quitting and
    restarting Safari I few times, it eventually became cured of its amnesia.

    I had this same problem and thought I had it licked but it's back again
    for me too.

    I am using:
    Safari 1.0 (had been updated from two previous installed betas)
    OSX 10.2.4

    I had tried dumping prefs for Safari and emptying all OSX caches via
    tail, and then reset both Sys PREF/Internet/Web/home page & Safari
    PREFs homepage to my preferred homepage.

    This seemed to work for a while (many days I did not keep track)
    suddenly it reverted.

    Lately, I just tried completely trashing everything Safari related
    (PREFs application itself etc) and then reinstalled from scratch Safari
    from dmg installer. Then dumped caches again and reset the two PREFS to
    my preferred home page.

    So far (several days now) it is holding.

    You might try this somewhat overkill approach.
    ==========
    Incidently I can't get Windows Media Player to work with Safari either
    since I upgraded. I think it worked before but don't know as I don't use
    it, my daughter did and wanted it.

    I am not sure it is updating web pages correctly too, but may be getting
    old pages from a cache. This was with pages I check frequently and
    change content often.
