    When I try to open a new tab it leaves the new tab blank and changes the tab I'm already working on...doesn't do this all the time, but enough to make it irritating. Basically it makes additional tabs uselesss

    Also, if I am working successfully in 2 or more tabs for a while it will freeze on the last URL I used on the newest tab and not allow me to go to any new pages on any of the tabs...the only solution to this seems to be quitting Safari and restarting..PITA

    I really like Safari, but it's been doing this to me for a few weeks now. Gonna go back to Firefox for the time being and hope that a future update fixes it.

    Anyone having similar trouble? Any suggestions?

    Quit Safari.
    Move com.apple.Safari.plist to your Desktop.
    Open Safari.*
    Better?**

    (You should find that plist file in Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences - that's where mine is [OS 10.5.8] )

    * Makes new plist file in Preferences

    ** Trash the plist file on the Desktop

    Not better? Login under a different User Account. Better now?
