    I have been having some issues with Safari starting out fast and then when certain sites open it slows down a ton. Someone last night said to repair permissions as one of the possible solutions. Well when I try that it says "repairing permissions:Estimated Time remaining less than 1 minute." Problem is it gets hung up there and doesn't move.

    Any thoughts?

    How long have you left it like that? Leopard's repair permissions is slower than Tiger's, which is a bug that Apple hasn't fixed yet (10.5.3 hopefully), and hangs at "less than a minute remaining" for a little while before actually repairing your permissions. If you try leaving that for a while, it'll eventually do it. Mine takes about 5 minutes or so to repair permissions. Some people's take as long as 10 or so. If you've waited much, much longer than that and it still won't work, get back to us.

    Thanks. I got impatient after about 5 minutes and stopped it. I have it running now so I will wait it out. Hope it solves my Safari problem. I have reset it and tried Firefox as well. Always slows down after a few minutes.
