Mac Support?

Postby samanthahollister » Sun Oct 12, 2014 4:43 pm

I've tried browsing lds.org on Safari (Version 6.1.6) and also Firefox and I can't get either to allow me to edit/upload household photos in the directory. On Firefox at least I get a window telling me to use the app. But on Safari, I just get a blank pop-up window - no text. Does this mean there is no Safari support either? No mac support at all for lds.org? :(

On my desktop is where all my photos are. I don't want to have to use my iPad to add our info if I can avoid it. It would be a bit of a pain for me and many others I imagine. Please advise. Thank you!

It works on my Mac. Do you have Flash installed? The upload system requires Flash.

I don't know what settings you could change, but Flash's security settings in Safari are my initial suspect.

Problem solved! It was a conflict with my AdBlock extension through Safari. Turning it off did the trick. Thank you!

Glad you solved your problem. Another alternative is to use Chrome. When I'm uploading photos, I'm always on a Mac and use Chrome.

BTW, in general, Macs seem to be supported quite well on LDS.org.
