    Hey all,

    I noticed that when I browse in Safari, I get a distorted menu bar after a while. It generally pulls in content from the page that I'm browsing. When I use Chrome or Firefox, I don't have this problem at all. Any suggestions?

    I'm running a 1.6 Ghz MBA Rev. A, if it helps. I have had issues with graphics lines in the past too...

    Time to get AppleCare?

    MBA is shorthand for a MacBook, right?

    Time to get AppleCare is prior to 12 months from purchase. Always a good idea for a laptop.

    1. Try Reset Safari... from Safari Menu. Don't check passwords box

    2. Safari plist file bad? If you don't know the drill, ask...

    MBP = MacBook Air *er, MBA - thanks GGJstudios

    I'd first try a new user account. Does this problem happen with any other applications? Are these pages specifically with Flash on them (when you notice it starting to happen)? Any Safari plugins? If you've had video-related problems before, though, I would go for a Genius Bar visit.

    To the OP: are you running iStat Menus? Some have had issues with that. Have you installed any other apps that modify the Menu Bar?
