    Am on the latest Mac OS and Safari. I have a constant problem using Safari where after loading a page, I get a spinning beachball. Reloading the page sometimes stops it, but it is quite annoying. Am 'assuming' it is flash related, and have made certain I have the latest plugin installed, but it continues...

    Am I right in that this is Flash related? And is there anything I can do to stop this behavior (other than switching browsers).

    Why do you need flash now? Isn't it on the way out?

    Not sure I need flash, or that it is actually the problem. Trying to understand why Safari beachballs on some pages, requiring a restart or reload.

    Without knowing more I'd suspect a plugin, maybe an adblock one?
    I'm finding safari slower and slower too. As features keep disappearing I'm finding I'm just using chrome or firefox more and more

    Does the beach ball effect show up in other programs?

    This beach ball effect is a common problem in Macbooks that use sata hard drives in that the sata cable may be failing.
