    Hey guys,

    So lately this has been happening to me, more often then not, in Safari, iChat, and just about anything else that has test in it.

    Heres an example of what happens in Safari. As you can see, its like the page gets rendered incorrectly. A fix, as i've learned, is a bit of a scroll or highlighting all the text.

    What gives?

    Get rid of the Safari Beta and see if that fixes the problem.

    Though the MBP I have it installed on does not have those issues.

    Cheers,

    Thought of that, but its not an issue that only occurs in Safari. iChat too. Mail.app, etc.

    Just try removing the Beta software as a test to rule it out altogether. Reboot and see if the problem persists. If it does, what other apps or hardware have you installed recently? Something had to have changed. Do you have an external HD you could install a clen load onto? If so, you could prove it's not hardware by installing a fresh load on the external drive and test it.

    Cheers,
