A friend asked me to see if I could figure out why her Panther Safari install (fully updated 10.3.9, Safari 1.3.2) was crashing when it attempted to load Google Maps. Indeed it was (unexpected quit as it tries to load the main Google Maps page or any page with a Google map embedded in it), and it kinda stumped me, nor did Google provide any help in a bit of searching. Anybody seen this issue, or have a suggestion? I installed Camino as a workaround, which is fine, but I hate to walk away from things unsolved, and I tried everything I could think of short of a full reinstall of the OS: * It DOES crash even on a newly-created user, so it's not prefs. * I tried reinstalling the 10.3.9 combo updater. * The Safari install was also having the no localized string problem, so I did the recommended solution: Delete Safari and the webkit framework, install the Safari 1.2 download, reinstall (again) the 10.3.9 combo updater, then run the 1.3.1 and 1.3.2 Safari updaters. This DID fix the strings issue, but did not help with the crashing. Interestingly, while I was doing that I noticed that Safari 1.2 did NOT crash on Google Maps (but started to again after the 1.3 update). What the heck is up with that?
