    Anyone else having Safari 5.1 issues? I've tried all the tricks (I think) and it just won't work anymore. I shouldn't have updated I guess. Resorted to Chrome cos' I simply can't work it out.

    Did you have a working network connection when this happened? Your problem is typical of the wifi bug in Lion with safari 5.1 just crashing when it is waiting on response from a down network.

    No I have wifi off, running through Ethernet. Wifi on my MacBook Pro has connection issues. I am running the latest Snow Leopard anyway. This Safari issue only came about with the 5.1 update. If I knew how to revert back to the previous version I'd try it out. I miss Safari on the Mac.
