Question Safari keeps crashing

It keeps crashing about 4 or 5 times a day. If I quickly change windows it freezes the Safari just goes to a White screen with an empty address bar and I have to reboot. If I don't reboot sometimes it catches back up.

It's an IPad 2 latest software any ideas?

Sounds like a slow Internet connection.

How many pages do you have open when it crashes? And how many apps are showing in the Multitasking Bar? Have you tried clearing the cache and an iPad restart?

Also, check the multitasking dock and see how many apps you have open...
I find when the multitask dock has a lot of apps in it, my system slows.

It crashes at one or two windows open usually. Tried clearing cache and restarting. If I disconnect wi-fi sometimes it comes back on.

Lately it's stopped remembering my Facebook passwords but my PC has done the same?

I don't understand why it crashes. I can be browsing and it just locks up and I can't do anything in the Safari window. Only a reboot or wi-fi disconnection solves it and it has only happened past week or so.

Have you looked at how many apps you've got showing in the Multitasking Bar?

Is it specific sites that usually crash or any site at all?

Have you tried clearing those out and then using Safari? Clearing my apps always seems to make Safari run a little smoother.

I've noticed a pattern usually it crashes when I have two windows open or more and it has the little loading sign a if I'm loading a new page even if it's loaded and I maybe switch to a new window to try and move down the page and it crashes.

Done a reset of settings no use will I have to wipe it and re sync the iPad?

See if help

Tap Settings, then tap Safari on the left side. Then on the right side - tap clear history, clear cookies, clear cache. Clear all three. Reboot your iPad. Hold down on the sleep button at the top until the red slider appears and slide to power off. Then hold down on the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and the iPad will restart. Launch Safari and see if helped.

All in one go I guess?

Done both before but did a hard reset last night. I will give it a go in this order see if it makes any difference.

Try restoring the iPad and see if that helps. Set it up as a new iPad after the restore and then sync everything back to it.

I ran it for two hours or so a week ago with nothing on after a restore and the problem still existed.

Safari is still crashing on Ios 4.3.5.

Try using it a few hours and expect two crashes still found no fix for this.

Only thing I've not tried is another wi-fi but I'm rarely using it out and about to see.

Do a full DFU restore, if that doesn't fix it then you may have a hardware problem.

I ran it with a full restore for 3 hours as a new set up never put anything on it and Safari keeps crashing.

People suggested hardware before but came to the conclusion that third party browsers work fine and I've not got a single hardware fault with it that some how it's software.

Just a suggestion. Download and use Terra for a while. Great tabbed browser, fast and stable. See if that works out better for you.
