    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 or 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, .

    Thanks in advance,


    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!

    I uninstalled flash, and safari didnt crash. So i had to install flash back, i did that, and it crashed again...

    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?

    I also did all that, created a new user account, and everything still crashes. Any ideas?

    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.

    A man of the people. The right sort of people.
    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.
