    At some point in the past few days, something has changed. My avatar keeps disappearing, and no longer can I post new threads or respond to old ones without an error message.

    I'm using Chrome to post this message.

    Is Safari no longer a valid browser for ADVRider? Is anyone else experiencing similar problems with Safari? Has there been a modification to the platform that renders Safari incompatible in some way?

    Why is it not possible to leave well enough alone?...and no, that's not a facetious question.

    Any help or feedback would be appreciated.

    After spending a couple of days at the Casita on Manzanita, that shouldn't come as a surprise.

    As you well know, I'm not a tech guru, and I don't want to be; I just want shit to work. And it's particularly irritating when...for no reason that I can discern...everything that worked great last week is all fucked up today. If this is coming off a bit sharp, well...maybe I'm dehydrated. I'll go get a bourbon and Coke and revisit this later.

    Safari isn't working for me at all, so this is posted via Chrome.

    Yeah I deleted my history, closed all apps then did a hard restart. It’s all good now!

    Dog, I love this place. I can always count on the people here to drill down right to the heart of the matter and offer helpful queries and suggestions.

    Thanks, Mark. I'll give this a try and see what happens. Right now, the only way I can do anything at all is via Chrome.

    I have a BMW in the garage, so there's a case of OEM oil out there somewhere. I assume that it's made from only the finest whales. Would you recommend something with a higher mineral content? Detergent additives, maybe?

    Oilhed's suggestion worked, so everything is just peachy once again. Thanks, mate.

    This should in no way, however, dissuade anyone from debating the merits of different browser oils.

    Seems to be something to do with Safari Version 11.1.2 (13605.3.8).

    FWIW, simply clearing the website data for ADV in Safari Preferences > Privacy > Manage Website Data... > ADV (in search box) > advrider.com (highlight it) > Remove (click it) then logging back in worked. Did not have to close browser or reboot.
