System summary; iPad mini, version 7.1.2, 4 GB available
Problem; Safari opens to a blank screen briefly, then closes again. I can see it running in the background, I can swipe to close, but it will never open.
Relevant info; Safari currently has well over a hundred tabs open. I can see it trying to open them on startup. This iPad was off the internet for about 2 months (traveling), but during that time MANY new tabs were opened. How you ask? There are Apps which open tabs in Safari, and my young daughter tapped on them A LOT! Of course nothing happened except a blank new tab, because the iPad was away from WiFi.
What I've tried;
---Close Safari in the background, start again.
---Clear cookies and data
---Turn off Open New Tabs in Background
and the big one
---Restore to Factory settings, Restore from backup.
Now before iOS v7 there was a method to close all tabs WITHOUT opening Safari. You could do it in the Settings by selecting "Private Browsing"
However, Apple moved "Private Browsing" out of Settings and into Safari itself. And I can't run Safari!
Have an iPad 2 with new IOS 5 and the updated iTunes 10.5 running on a Win 7 Home Prem 64 bit.
This may be more for a iTunes forum, but the odd thing is, that iTunes is starting on its own and if I close it, it will open up again in 10 minutes (or so). Further, on the left side it shows that the iPad2 is connected - but its not!.
I have a small question from a friend. I don't own an iPad, so I'm asking the question on his behalf.
On a "web app" or rather a dedicated user interface website on Safari, he wanted to tap on a link, but the whole board is selected instead. He told me on the PC he double-clicked to access it. Here's a picture of the website, I've rounded the selected table in blue so you get to see what's being selected.
Anyway, is there a way to double-tap on the iPad ? Does anybody have a suggestion on how to bypass this so that he can tap on the link directly ?
Suddenly when I click Safari my maps opens automatically instead and I cannot view pages or log to Internet - no browser. It's like when I click on Safari icon the OS prompts Maps to open. I've restarted iPad, cleared cache, history, and cookies and it doesnt work. I had a few pages open that I would have a hard time retrieving so I would prefer avoiding resetting all settings.
I have a strange issue where I attempt to open iTunes on the iPad (latest software version), iTunes briefly starts (you can briefly see the icons along the bottom), then it quickly exits and then the App Store starts up and is always ends up on the review page for Angry Birds (which I have installed on the iPad). Very strange!
I have a web app at work that requires double clicks in a browser to open content (digital asset management - Canto Cumulus). I was excited to come in to work & browse images, but viewing categories requires a double click on the category name, and obviously, all that does is zoom in/out the browser page! Does anyone know if there's a way to simulate a double click in Safari? I've tried holding 2 fingers on the screen while double clicking with a third - combos like that - nothing works.
When I try to open the iTunes Store on my iPad, it shows a gray screen for a couple seconds (as if it is trying to load the front page) and then and opens the app store to the review page of an app I bought a while ago. Anyone had this happen before? I tried hard resetting it to no avail and don't want to spend hours restoring it through iTunes if there's an easy fix.
Has anyone had the issue of opening iTunes, it opens but then immediately closes iTunes and launches the App Store? It seem is to be stuck in this loop. Restarting the device did nothing. It seems to launch into a review of some game. Here is a vid ---> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUXsbAYASxs
I'd like to add a "translate" menu to safari browser website, that is whenever I right-click a word, phrase or paragraph it will give an option to translate (any preferred language). Currently, safari on iPad Air only gives "copy" or "define". I would like to add "translate" to that.
my friend forgot the passcode of his new ipad mini immediately after the initial configuration and never synced with itunes. now ipad is inactive asking to connect with itunes. after following all proper steps URL.... to connect with itunes, The following happens.
1. iTunes opens with the pop up window "The software of the ipad needs to restored to factory settings or updated". I clicked Restore.
