    I have 2 new issues after upgrading to 10.4 from 10.3 - I just did a "Safari update" a few days ago...

    1) Safari takes forever to load and says can't contact Spell Checker. Then works ok for a few minutes then stalls out about every 15-20 minutes.

    2) When i start up, the Finder menu bar is as it always is BUT! when I start up Safari the menu changes as below starting with "Sleep"...


    I know the one with periods will give me an option to cancel that particular action I have chosen but the ones without the periods are new and are one-step actions - why are they both showing up?

    I have also tried upgrading to Safari Beta 4 and it seems to have helped the slow connection - at least so far.

    I also downloaded MainMenu but don't know what tasks to perform.

    I have attached a few screen shots so you can see what I mean about the "Black Outline" around selected objects and the Finder menu.

    You have VoiceOver on. Hit F5 or Command-F5. You must not have sound working?
