    Does anyone else have some Safari crashing issues? It usually happens when there is flash videos loading.


    Sometimes a video will try to load, and the browser closes. Not all the time, even on the same video. Not too sure what causes this, or how to fix it.

    I notice it will also do it sometimes when there are no videos, I could be on a forum such as this one. I was editing a port forwarding blog on myspace last night and when I was nearly done, I opened photobucket to get the links to some screen shots, and it crashed on me.

    Kind of a piss off, especially since it wasn't youtube or anything that usually causes it. I ended up re-doing it in an offline HTML file first before posting to avoid losing the data again.


    Anyone else have Safari problems like this? It hasn't really bothered me much until I lost most of that blog.

    Safari used to crash on me as well when I was runner Panther. When I upgraded to Tiger it pretty much stopped. Now I get a lot of picture files that won't open and get the blue boxes with the question mark. Annoying.

    Safari 4 just came out recently and you could try upgrading to see if it helps. Safari in my opinion has never been the most stable browser in the world.

    So I guess it is just the browser itself.


    I do not wish to upgrade after seeing threads about problems associated with upgrading. One of the major bugs it has affects Messenger:Mac (Msn).
