Update erases my email accounts

Every time X-notifier updates in Safari, it wipes out all my email accounts and I have to reinput them all. Is this supposed to happen, and can it be fixed?

I can't speak for Safari problem, but CFBancroft can...   and otherwise, how about going into X-Notifier, Options and using the Export feature to save your accounts... so  you can just 'Import' them later, instead of having to "reinput them all"?

As you said "I have to reinput them all"...
I will repeat what RpD said above... and with my cute explain note.

You do not need to RE-input, that only if you did BACK-UP regularly.

You can look at my User Guide that I wrote one and half year ago.

Before you update Safari...
Please do back-up FIRST, and in-case...
Safari decide to 'SCREW' X-notifier...
Then you can restore your account with BIG Smile.

So you will NOT worry about RE-input them ALLLLLL.

FYI:

I have not test beyond version ... Mac 10.7.5 with Safari 6.1.6,
I do not know, or answer your question.
My attitude... if no problem with current version, I will not update to latest version Yosemite!
Unless I buy new Macintosh come with Yosemite, I will deal with it later!

Thanks for reading and understanding,

Thank you. When exporting in Safari, it doesn't ask where to save a file, it just opens a new tab with a bunch of code on it. I saved that page as a web archive file, and will test it the next time X-notifier updates.

Thanks again

When I export my accounts file (in Windows PC), it saves a file with an extension of " .xn ", like... firefox.xnJust FYI ...don't know if Apple uses same filetype extension. May make a difference when you go to import it.
