How to Load Webpages in Unsafe Mode in Safari
Posted by Chris Kuhlman, Last modified by Aly Essa on 04 August 2016 12:09 PM

Overview

Apple has tightened security for using Java applets by blocking access to the local file system. When applets are launched from the Safari Browser, they will need to access the local file system and this has been identified as a security risk for some users using Mac OSX. For applets to run, the listing that is returned by the file system needs to be accessible to the applet that requests it. When applets that need to access the file system are launched, they will only list files that everyone has permissions for.

Resolution

  1. Open Safari menu and open Preferences.
  2. Under the Security tab, click Manage Website Settings button.
  3. Find the site that is being launched and select Run in Unsafe Mode from the drop down.
  4. A dialogue will pop up to accept the site's certificates. Hit the Trust button.
  5. After you select Done, repeat this process to verify the settings have been saved. You will see a triangle hazard sign if the site is in the desired state.
