    Hi all,

    I've run into a problem, and I am wondering if I can get some fellow iPhone owners to help. If you have a few minutes, can you please try the following steps?

    WARNING: These steps may cause Safari to freeze/hang on your iPhone. Please make sure nothing else is going on while you perform these steps.

    1. Start Safari on your iPhone.
    2. Go to the following web site:


    3. Once the page has completely loaded, scroll down until you see any "comments" link. Click the link.

    For me, Safari pretty much hangs at this point... it never shows me the page whose link I clicked. To get out of Safari, I (and you, if it hangs for you) have to hold down the Home button for several seconds until Safari closes. The links on this site worked until some point last week, and I am trying to determine if the problem is just me or if it affects all iPhone users.

    So, if you can, please perform the above steps and then post here your results, positive or negative.

    Thanks!

    OK, try this: Turn OFF the Plug-Ins option in Safari (Settings > Safari -- you should exit Safari before changing the setting) and then see if you have any trouble.

    Thanks. I am relieved to hear that it's not just me who was having trouble with that web site.
