[macvoiceover] Re: Fwd: Avoiding Safari freezes related to displaying PDF files [was Re: A Note About Onyx]

hmm,

Maybe we need to look into a mailcap. I'm so used to right clicking on pdfs, I didn't realize it would automatically download them. I did read something though a while back about the cool native support for .pdfs in safari. Cool for some I guess.

I already have that box checked, and it doesn't help.
Just so you know.

you can tell safari through the gui not to download files unless confirmed.

to do this, open safari prefs, uncheck the box that says open saved files after downloading. I don't know if it will work with pdfs or not, but it might.

Could safari's idea of what to use to handle pdf files be modified say with a mailcap entry that told it to use wget -b file.pdf whenever a pdf file were found? I'm thinking to perhaps cause safari to leave these files alone entirely and have another tool like wget download them in the background. That's what that -b switch does and wget downloads until you have an exact copy by default.

Couldn't we just set some sort of preference in Safari to automatically download .pdf files instead of attempting to open them? The browser wouldn't freeze at all, then.

The safari freeze still occurs on large pdf files. Small (1-2 page pf files) will most of the time behave. Really, the best way to fix this is just to right click (ctrl-click) on the file name, and dowload the pdf file, then open it with preview.
