    I have tried this and the debug has not appeared. I have followed every step many times over. Any suggestions?

      This video was made in the Safari 3 era. For Safari 4, it still works, but the menu that appears is called “Develop.”

    Many thanks! Let’s do this, would “Develop” still have the same features and if so, how can I test that?

      The just renamed the Debug menu “Develop,” that’s all. You turn it on the same way, though.

    I’m going to the terminal and typing in the “default write IncludeDebugMenu 1” and when I press “return” I get that error.

      It is “defaults” not “default” — with an “s”

    once you get the debugging errors , how do you fix the problem?? what do you do to fix it, I am showing all kinds of erros but dont know what to do now?

      Are you taking about errors on a Web page that you are building? If so, then you have to debug it, etc. But if you mean errors on a page you didn’t make yourself, then there is nothing for you to do. Just ignore them.
