Safari not playing nice

macOS and Mac Apps


Is anyone else having the trouble with safari where when one backs up through pages the VO focus is lost so jumping headings, VO and H, or finding with VO, VO and F, don't work? I have to reset voiceover each time by turning it on and off. As you might imagine, it's very frustrating.

Also some sites are throwing up errors, the Natwest banking site, UK only I assume, is crashing out when I try to go into the secure chat area, is this java, flash or something mysterious like that? I'm doing the usual thing of just throwing words I heard once your way... Is it something to do with 'solar storms'?

Hello Olz,

Yes, this issue has been reported by a number of folks using Safari under both Mavericks & Yosemite. It has also been reported in Safari running on IOS devices under IOS 8x. Some folks report that the behavior varies from website to website, and at least one Mac User has reported the issue does not happen to them at all. A few of us have received feedback from Apple regarding the issue, and the feedback so far has indicated the folks at Apple are not able to replicate the issue. You can find some more details in the following Applevis thread:

If you have not already done so, please send an email detailing your version of the issue to
