quit option grayed out in Safari

For some reason when i try to quit Safari the menu item is grayed out. Apple Q does not work. Right clicking on the icon in the Dock does not work and i am not given the option to force quit.

Has anyone else had this issue, i tired resetting Safari (from the same menu that you use to quit).

I've seen that in a few apps. Probably a bug. Just force quit with command+option+escape and hope for the best.

I have the same problem.
Apple says it's a known issue and a fix is on the way.
Till then it's Firefox.

Wow, good for you.
I'll still having the same problem with the addition of one more.
If I try to delete a bookmark, I get the beach ball lockup and have to force quit.

There seems to be quite a few bugs in Safari... on the Apple discussion forums they seem to have traced the inability to quit down to the Dock icon, but that is on Lion; don't know if it applies to Snow Leo.

For me, the "Quit Safari" button is dimmed, Cmd-Q doesn't work, and there are no close X's on the tabs, even if I hover over it (I can Cmd-W it, though). I've also seen, more than once, seemingly randomly, that Safari refuses to allow me to switch to a Chinese input script; I'm forced to type it out in TextEdit then copy it over.

The Chinese input thing happened on 10.5 and 10.6 with Safari 4 and 5, the quit/close tab thing only happened in 10.6.

And Safari still takes up 1.2GB of memory after an hour or two of browsing, which it refuses to release until I quit it, forcing other apps to eat into my virtual memory. *sigh*

EDIT: Just found something else.. the href of a link no longer shows up in the status bar at the bottom of the window..

I'm running a partitioned drive so I can use some non compatible Lion apps., and I loaded them from Time Machine.
I don't have any problems running Safari on that side.
