When will wordpress update their Kupu to 1.4.4?
I’m tired of switching to another browser every time I need to use the older versions of Kupu
Making Safari and other browsers on Mac OS X compatible with ZopeEditManager and with .zem files that may be served by Zope/Plone

I have submitted the following hint to
Feel free to test/comment…
Safari compatibility with .zem and ‘Edit with external application’ features of Plone/Zope
For .zem files, sometimes offered by Plone content management systems, to be treated as safe by Safari and similar applications, you may add three strings to your DownloadAssessment preferences.
1) in Terminal,
plutil -convert xml1 ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.DownloadAssessment.plist
2) in Terminal,
3) include the three strings shown in the example at
then save and close the plist
4) get ZopeEditManager from the Urbanape software area
5) ZopeEditManager menu | Preferences… | Helper Apps
- you may wish to add helpers such as
application/msword | NeoOffice | .doc
6) quit then re-launch Safari.

According to Microsoft, Office Live Workspace works with … Firefox 2.0 on Mac OS X 10.2.x and later.In fact, when I use Firefox 22.214.171.124 on Mac OS X 10.4.10, Microsoft’s free sign-up routine fails at an early hurdle. Office Live complains:
In order to use Microsoft Office Live, you will need to have Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or later running on Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Microsoft Windows Server 2003.

If applications on your Mac are misbehaving, and a fix is elusive, try this:
- use Disk Utility to verify your disks
- launch Terminal
- quit from all other applications
- at the command line, run the following command
- whilst that command runs, be very patient
- whilst waiting for the command to complete, do absolutely nothing — it’s essential to not touch your Mac until after the run is complete
- any errors presented during the run are typically negligible, but if you like you can take a note of them after the event.
