    I downloaded the gmail extension and when i installed it it immediately showed up in the toolbar, but that was not the case with the reload button, so now when I go to the customize toolbar pop-up menu Safari just crashes when I roll over it. Has this happened to anyone else? I already reported this bug...If it indeed is one. Sorry if there's already a thread on this.

    Yes, I have the same problem. Install any extension and it crashes exactly as you describe.

    But only with my computer at work:
    10.5, Macbook Pro (about 12 months old).

    My computer at home, 1st gen Macbook (2006) with 10.6 does not have this problem though.

    It's a 13" aluminum Macbook, before they renamed them to macbook pros. OS X 10.5.8

    Oh and i might just try out Chrome until they fix Safari 5, it feels slower now for some reason.

    I can confirm that this problem only affects the Leopard version of Safari 5.

    Any attempt to customize the toolbar after an extension that has an associated button is installed and activated will result in a crash.

    The Snow Leopard version is not affected.

    If you're impatient (like I am), you can work around it by customizing the 10.6 version of Safari as you like, then substituting the 10.6 plist in place of the 10.5 plist.

    This assumes you have access to machines with both systems, and have Safari configured similarly on both. It's a hack, but it works. Or, if you know how to edit plist files...
