    Three thoughts:

    1. Turn on Private Browsing (on the Safari menu)
    2. Turn off iCloud for Safari bookmarks. System Preferences->iCloud->uncheck Safari
    3. Separate iCloud/Apple IDs.
    Don't know for sure that any of them will work but they're worth a try. :shrug:

    Tom :)macwave:... try it...)

    :( I am entitled to the free upgrade as I only got my MacBook Pro a couple of weeks ago. I applied for the free upgrade and received my redemption code. I was one of the unlucky ones that received a duff code so they sent me a replacement. Second code was also duff. I spoke to Denise from Apple who has been assisting me all the way through and she tells me that in fact the second code did actually work even though I received the "code already used" message again. She tells me all I need to do is open iTunes, select Store, click "check for available downloads" sign in and it will start downloading. I do this and all I get is "all purchases have been downloaded for this account". If I look at recent purchases on my iTunes account it shows Mountain Lion was purchased on the 26th. If that was the case, where is it hiding? :unsure:

    I've sent another email to Denise with the up to date info, sent an email to Apple support in general and reported a problem via iTunes and no one is replying to me anymore. :(

    I'm sad.

    Keith! You. Are. A. Genius!

    Why oh why didn't Denise tell me to look there! Having the App Store icon is still new to me so I only went there to redeem. I didn't see the purchased option at the top. It's downloading!!!!

    Thank you. :thumbsup:
