    More info, please . . .

    What update did you install - combo or just the .7 update?

    Are you using the Safari 4 beta?

    Can you get e-mail, or successfully use other sites?

    Did you repair permissions before you installed the update?

    Have you rebooted since these problems started? You say you "restart"
    after the problems - are you restarting (i.e., force-quit) Safari/Firefox,
    or the whole system?

    Have you reset your router and cable modem/dsl modem? A simple way
    is just to unplug the power on each for a minute or so.

    To answer your question, no, I'm not having any problems. I used Hulu
    today to watch both NCIS and Bones shows. And using Firefox now to
    write this. I did the update on Sunday . . .

    Let us know what you tried . . .

    Try zapping a PRAM. Restart your computer and before is restarts simultaneously hold down the Apple, option (alt), R and P buttons until you hear the chime 2-3 times. Then release and allow it to restart. I had the same problem and this worked for me.

    I know you're not going to like this answer, but Safari, for me, is a horrible browser. From my experience, it leaks memory, hangs, and freezes a lot! If you want a lightweight, no-fuss browser use Camino. It's blazing fast. Otherwise, use Firefox.

    Good luck.
