    Hi guys,

    Well yesterday safari(3.2.3) and firefox started to crash on me.

    I deleted the safari.plist, the cache and resetted safari but it keeps on crashing on particular times. For example when i go to www.thisis50.com or www.defsounds.com and want to watch a video.

    It just crashes every single time... driving me nuts because some website's i check a couple of times daily, and now i can't.

    I've searched allot on the internet and still haven't found the right solution for my problem, so i would really appreciate it if somebody tries to help me.

    My this will help, http://www.paste-it.net/public/k9f8e25/ .

    Thanks in advance,

    Mladen

    UPDATE: This sh*t is f*cking driving me CRAZY!! i tried everything and still it crashes... goddamn flash. Please anyone who knows the solution, tell me!

    There's a good chance that your Flash plugin is corrupted. You said it crashed when you wanted to watch a video, and those websites probably use Flash.

    You might want to try reinstalling Flash Player from Adobe. Post back and let me know!

    Clear out those temp files. Somethings messed up.. if that doesn't fix it, create a new user account, try it on there. If it doesn't crash on the other user, you need to do an archive and install.

    I did all of it, it's the flash plugin... it only crashes on sites containing flash, when i uninstalled flash, my browsers didn't crash. But when i install flash again, it starts crashing again, any suggestions?

    Is it the latest flash? See if you can find an older one that might not crash. Of course a few sites might not work :(

    I'm having the same problems. Trying a few things, let me see if I can fix it. Repairing permissions didn't help at all.

    My Firefox was crashing a lot until a few months back. Then it was stable up until this past week.. now it's crashing a few times every day..

    I had a similar problem when I had Keycue installed. I uninstalled it completely, and I've had no problems since.

    That's the only suggestion I have; good luck!

    Flash has always run like crap on macs. Adobe needs to do a lot of work to optimize it.
