I've been lurking here a while, and I haven't seen any recent posts on the problem people were having with Safari crashing at times when listening to music while web-browsing. Is anyone still having problems with this?
ok so i have done no sort of scientific study on this so I'm sorry in advance if I'm completely wrong.
I noticed that the crashing happened a lot when my capacity was almost completely full (about 150mb left). Then i sorted through some music i dont listen to anyway and now I have 1gb left and it seems to crash much less and only crashes on really large pages so I wonder if this could be an available memory issue.
Sorry to bump this for an update...Over the weekend, my Safari was quiting on me after about every two pages loads, at first I had music playing...then I turned it off and was having the same problem. I normally leave it on standby and never really turn it off, but decided to take a page out of MS troubleshooting and turned it COMPLETELY off and back on and like magic I was able to play music and surf with 5 open pages without out 1 quit the rest of the day (about 4 hours).
Not the #1 ideal solution, but reboot takes <1min so it'll work for me for now.
i dont know why , but for me, my safari has never crashed while playing music. i have loaded even heavy-webpages with lots of pictures on it withabout 4 different open windows, and its never crashed. i guess im just lucky
