    1.) Make sure Safari is in FS mode
    2.) Open up about a dozen or so tabs
    3.) Select View: “Show all tabs”
    4.) Swipe through pages at random, select one
    5.) Repeat step 3 a few times. Does Safari lock up?

    For me, Safari requires a force quit. Works fine when not in FS mode. I saw this in DP6 as well.

    Yes. Same result here. It locked up and became non responsive.

    I'll play with it some more and report it. Have you reported it?

    Edited to add: That's one I would never encounter on my own. I would normally never have that many tabs open, and I never use FS mode in normal Safari browsing. :)

    Thanks for confirming John. Yes, I filed a report. (But I think I'm on Apple's Ignore list by now :D).

    Swipe between pages with mouse is also broken :(
    It freezes scrolling too

    I tried this out not three times but around 10 or so. Works like a charm for me.

    Figures. :(

    I'm trying to isolate it. Tried with a clean account but it still locks up for me going through the procedure above. Sometimes it takes 3 steps, sometimes a dozen but I can always get Safari to lock up.

    Maybe try it with more tabs open?

    Well, the Safari is still working fine, but I have another problem :D It seems that I am in a 'permanent' full-screen mode. That is, the applications behave as normal, but the menu and dock are hidden and must be mouse-overed to appear. Very weird.

    Yes, I've seen that as well (and other issues) but I'm trying to troubleshoot and document one thing at a time. :D

    I'm finding there are a lot of anomalies associated with Full Screen mode. So many that I'm purposely using all my apps this way in an attempt to narrow something down that the coders can use. I'm fairly certain it has something to do with the changes in multi-montitor support even though one doesn't need another monitor attached.

    DP8: Same behavior. Still locks up for me using the same full screen procedure above.

    GM still exhibits this behavior. 3 different test machines. (cMBP's).

    Note: Keep at it using the method prescribed above... it will lock up but not always at the same times.

    You just like crashing things on my computer. :)

    I'll check the GM tonight. As I said before, that's one I would never encounter on my own. I only use FS in Safari for videos.

    I will say that my sporadic Safari Magic Mouse scrolling lockups have disappeared with the GM.

    Why, yes. It's what I do. :D

    But this one I stumbled on by accident and It's one of the few quirks I've been able to replicate with 100% the same results since DP2.

    And now that FS apps work correctly on multi monitors I use everything in Full Screen. Every bit of screen real estate counts on a 13" display.

    That would probably change my usage pattern too. Since I'm a desktop user, I have big screens. I'll crash Safari for you after my run tonight. And then after I reboot I'll test the sparseimage-on-an-SMB-share bug that someone reported. :)

    Yes. You made me crash Safari again. :p

    1. Open 10 tabs.
    2. Go Full Screen.
    3. Select Show All Tabs.
    4. Swipe.
    5. Repeat 3 a second time.
    6. Safari locks up.

    I reported it. Again.

    Well there you go. Now stay out of full screen mode and carry on. :D

    I tried a bunch of time to reproduce this but was unable to on my 2013 MBA.
