    My Safari keeps messing up when tapping a link to a youtube video.

    It will open a new page, and then open the youtube app and play the video.

    When returning to safari I find a white page, and when i switch back to my previous 'tab/page' you can see that Safari has clearly messed up, with 2 thirds of the screen staying block white.

    Closing the app from the app switching bar fixes this, but still a pain.

    Try it with this link and let me know if im alone :)

    I have the exact same problem on my iPhone 4 since I installed iOS 4.3
    Safari will crash (close itself) when I fiddle too much with it afterwards.

    I don't get it consistently, and I'm not sure what triggers it but I had a few times already.
    Your link does not seems to trigger it, at least not now.

    Same problem here. Usually always happens when muliitasking and switching back to safari and a page that's already been loaded. Only way to fix it is to close the safari browser in the multitasking bar.
    Hoping for a fix for this soon. It's annoying and a pain.
    But I sure do love my iPad.

    I had the same problem! I didn't have to close safari in the multitasking bar, though. I just hit the only x available that looked like it was for the original browser window. It closed the 3/4 screen and went back to normal.

    I have this as well however it is only on my IPhone. VERY annoying, I have to turn the phone off and on again to get rid of it.

    another bug which is on my iPad this time, maybe others have it too, where my Bookmarks on safari don't show all my favourites, only a few. But then shows them all after I exit and click on the bookmark button again. It's a frequent occurrence.

    If I do this, I have to find where I was in a forum or website again. Happens when I leave a page via a YouTube link and I want to go back.

    this is happening to me on pad 2, when i open a you tube video from safari and then go back to safari, the page starts to reload and then safari crashes.

    I am having the same issue. I was about to start a similar thread.

    I've also had safari crash a few times just randomly. Just noticed it crashed several times on very annoying.

    Also if I watch an embedded YouTube video there are no options to expand to full screen or pause. Anyone else notice this?

    I never had this issue on my iPad 1. But I never upgraded it to 4.3.

    I hope they fix this soon!

    Just had exactly the same issue. 4.3 on an iPod Touch 4th gen.

    iOS 4.3.1 is around the corner with some security fixes for Safari, I don't know if they'll fix this too.

    Haven't seen this on my iPhone yet, but I suspect I will at some point. It's happened to me twice now on the iPad 2. Not a huge deal, I just have to force quit safari and reopen it, but I'll be more wary of opening YouTube links from safari until it gets patched.

    This? And the photo isn't cropped, it's basically only showing the very top part of the upper row of windows and the rest is pure white... Yeah it's getting really annoying having to kill Safari to get it working again.

    The variation of this that I see is: click a link to a YouTube video from Safari, watch the video, hit home button, go back to Safari, see blank white page, touch the page and Safari crashes. Relaunch Safari and it's back to the page where I started. This is on an iPad 2.
