    Safari 3 consistently seems to crash and the only plug in is the default flash 9.

    I have deleted cookies/preferences but that doesn't resolve the problem. There are some strange segmentation fault errors that come up in my console.

    I did a complete clean install of Leopard on my Macbook Pro.

    Any specific sites that you went to when it crashed?

    Sometimes, but it seems to be extremely random...

    One is macworld.com and the other is this site macrumors.com

    I just tried existing Safari using the regular option q, and it crashed.

    This is stupid, I turned off the firewall and things seem to be stable now...

    Even if there was some sort of cross-site javascripting happening the browser shouldn't crash...

    It looks like the firewall and Safari are tied in close together with the operating system.
