View Full Version : NEWBIE trouble. safari+osX rebooting

May 31, 2004, 07:19 PM
new to mac

been finding that safari gets SUPER slow over time....say a day or two.

gets to the point where a pop up window says it has timed out.
also any downloads get 1980s slow...ridiculous

the internet connection is fine. other pcs sharing the connection are unaffected.

rebooting always completely clears the problem.

using brand new powerbook w/plenty of memory.

please help....i'm rebooting as much as on my xp machine.

When Safari gets slow try quitting it. Sometimes when I have Safari on for more that 4 continuous days, it locks up.

Other wise, have you tryed Repairing Permissions? Open Disk Utility located in Applications>Utilities>Disk Utility. Open it up, select your HD, and click on the 'Repair Permissions' button. Should take about 10-15 minutes.

Log out, then log back in.

But besides repairing permissions, occasionally run fsck in single user mode when you boot the machine every now and then.

try clearing the cache when it gets slow. might help, might not. Safari>Empty Cache...
