Safari tabs not closing....

Does anyone else experience this issue? It seems to happen to me a lot. When I'm on Safari and I have multiple tabs, sometimes when I click the mouse on the small X button the tab does not close, it just doesn't detect the click. When I move the cursor away for a second and bring it back it then works. Only happens in Safari so Im guessing its just a bug. Anyone else?

Not a bug. Could be your mouse. Try another one to test that theory.

Mines been doing that also. Its not only this ver of Safari, or OS as it did it before I upgraded. You can click and see the graphic change and know its been clicked but it doesn't always close like the OP says and sometimes on mine its like time delayed. I've tried different mice and keyboards and so far no clue.

Some days it doesn't happen at all and some, several times a day. Not the mice and its not the sites, cause its totally random.

I'm on Safari Version 4.0.5 (6531.22.7) and Snow leopard 10.6.3

This absolutely happens to me, and is continuing in Safari 5.

It only occurs when I attempt to close the active tab, and can be fixed by activating another tab and then closing it. I have safari stand installed

Has been happening to me for a few weeks now - I have reinstalled Safari 5 in the hopes that it'll fix it, but not sure what's causing it unfortunately.

Appear to be getting this too. Also happens when I try closing a Safari windows (red x). Thought it might well be the mouse (magic mouse), but other aspects of the screen / finder seem to work fine.

You can use Command+W to close any tab, or Command+E to close all tabs but the current one. Just click File in Safari and you'll see the keyboard shortcuts. In this case, it's faster than using the mouse or trackpad.
