    Every time I use the tab feature in Safari (beta 2), I just get the beachball effect, no matter what page I try to tab, I get the same problem.
    I also have to force quit just to get Safari working again!!
    I have reinstalled safari multiple times, and it is still a no go.
    Has anyone else had this issue?
    Any suggestions?


    I know Safari 2 is still in Beta form, but this is pissing me off so much that I have to use Camino!!

    Yup, I get this problem all the time, not just with opening new tabs but also with opening new windows. Basically, I only feel safe if there is only 1 window open.

    Also, sometimes the second window or tab will open, but all the text in it is HUGE. Dunno what's up with that.

    Anyway, Safari is promising but I can't wait 'til it's out of beta. 'Til then I guess I'll find myself falling back to using Camino.

    I can't wait till apple gets on the ball and make all the apps work right. Or at least do simple tasks that other apps do.

    mine works fine too.

    i think you guys need to delete the "com.apple.safari.plist" preference, which will be found in your Home>Library>Preferences folder.

    deleting the app itself isn't going to do anything

    All I did was use Software Update to get the latest beta. I didn't even think about deleting anything - I assumed if the application was part of Software Update, then the update script would delete/install whatever files were necessary.

    Should I delete the "plist" preference and then manually reinstall?


    FYI I have 10.2.6. All updates installed through Software Update.

    No Problems

    I've had very few problems with Safari, and I use an older 500mhz iBook, and I use tabs all the time, and never once had a problem, even when using 10 or more tabs. very very rare that I get a spinning beach ball even on a large graphically intense website.
