    Yeh i have had about 6-7 crashes since installing Tiger, seems a bit unstable when playing video/viewing pdfs.

    Safari wouldn't open for me in Tiger until deleting iGetter. It's fine now. So, I'd recommend deleting any plugins or applications which are associated with Safari

    Good point.. those that have troubles, you've removed all 3rd party plug-ins that might be screwing Safari up, right? And then found Tiger aware versions of those same plug-ins once you verify that Safaqri works ok?

    First of all, easy on the CAPS!

    And like others have said, it's most likely an incompatible third party plug in. Disable them all, then add them back one by one, making sure you have the latest versions.

    MINE WORKS FINE

    Second the comment above about caps.

    Did you do a clean install or an upgrade? Also: what the others mentioned above is very important: disable or delete all thirs party plug-ins, repair permissions, and give it a try then...

    Agreed on the plug-ins. I've got a 'fresh' archived and installed version with no Safari plug-ins and haven't crashed once since updating to Tiger and I'm usually sitting with 6 or so tabs open with various pdfs etc going on.

    Anyone else notice safari 2 being slower? I cant decide these days if its slower or comcast is still screwed up. Ive switched to firefox for the time being, as it seems a bit faster.

    Oh, and have you removed or disabled all third party plug-ins?









    :p

    If the apps don't give you an option to disable look under Your HD/Library/Internet Plug Ins, or of course you could do a Spotlight search for a more thorough approach ;)

    No one quite seems to understand what im asking here. I dont want to know where to get the 3rd party applications that you all keep linking, i want to know how to delete these thirdm party party plugins that are referenced in the above quote. How do i delete them to stop safari from crashing in Tiger.

    Start with ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/, failing that, end with /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/

    Sorry about the CAPS but it got your attention ...

    anyway I have deleted the plugins, empted cache, reset safari .. how do I repair permissions and delete safari preferences file?

    It only crashes when I close a window.

    /Applications/Utilites/Disk Utility -> select boot drive -> Repair permissions button

    Preference file can be found at: ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.safari.plist

    Note, the ~ means, your home directory.
