I've been having a problem with one particular website (WSJ) . The problem must be with my computer because the technicians at the website have been unable to duplicate my problem. More importantly, the Apple telephone service people don't have the problem I do with the website: they can access archival articles from the WSJ, which I can't do. Incidentally, I have the same problem whether I access the website with Safari, Google Chrome, or Firefox. Finally, I don't have any security programs turned on.
So far, I have used Disc First Aid to repair disc permissions, and I have had the Apple people walk me through the "Archive and Install" process. Unfortunately, these "fixes" didn't help me with the accessing problem. This left me with one possibility: In the January 2005 printing of Mac OS X, The Panther Edition, you mention a way of making Safari more acceptable to sites that aren't Safari friendly. You call it "Safari Enhancer". However, I couldn't find it on this website. Does that mean that it is no longer needed and has therefore been abandoned?
I am working with the Wall Street Journal to try to gain access to their archives. Is there something more I can do on this end that might help the cause?

Safari Enhancer used to be found here: http://www.celestial...ri_enhancer.php
I found the link on our Missing CD page for the Panther Edition of Mac OS X: The Missing Manual. The link now results in a 404, not found.
When I went to http://www.celestialfrontiers.com/ the author of that software has written:
I used to do some Mac software development, but got out of it. An application of mine called Safari Enhancer (A web Browser enhancement for Safari) was pretty popular for a time, although has been discontinued for some time. If you came here looking for that app, I don’t make it available anymore, as it doesn’t work on the latest versions of the Mac OS. The old support materials are still available on the forums, should you be looking for them.
Since you aren't able to access the WSJ archives from Firefox or Chrome in addition to Safari your problem is probably not with Safari. What happens when you try to access the archives? Do you get an error?
