I down loaded an app that I thought would be very helpful to me called "instapaper". In the installation process, my Safari menu bar flashed and then turned from its normal grey with black type to black with grey type. The app itself did not appear to install and I deleted it. Along with the discoloration, now I am not able to remain signed into (at least) facebook and NYTimes and must sign in for each visit. I have written to the developer but have not heard back.
I have shut down, restarted several times. I really really REALLY don't want to return to factory settings. I have a large amount of bookmarks saved for research I am doing (which is what led me to purchase this app - at the cost of $5!!).
Does anyone have any next step suggestions for me?
