    Ive upgraded to the latest Tiger update 10.4.11 which uses Safari 3.0.4 and im very displeased with the outcome of this upgrade. Safari just crashes 30-40 times a day, specially when im opening more than 1 page in tabs simultaneously and not only, also when opening them without tabs! Has anyone come across this or might there be some other conflict i should be looking for?

    I've used Safari 3 on Tiger ever since the beta was released and have had no problems at all. Do you have any addons installed at all that may need updating?

    Do you have any plugins? I know that I was able to use one plugin for about 2 restarts of Safari, then I could never open Safari again. So, make sure you have no plugins installed.

    Safari 3.0.4 with Tiger Upgrade

    Too bad. I too am experiencing crashes with the upgrade to 10.4.11. Whenever I close a window (regardless of the number open) the program closes. It's not so much a freeze-crash or anything like that, the app just shuts down. This closure/shut down event also occurs when closing a tab. I hope someone knows something about how to correct it. How do we remove the 10.4.11 and go back one version?

    Yes i agree, same probs here too. Not a freeze crash but only shut down crashes! Especially when opening tabs and closing them!

    Solved

    Although there's no logic to my resolution, (installed 10.4.11 upgrade and new Safari had crash problems) but I no longer have the crashes. I "upgraded" to Leopard. No blue screen, no problems. I did "clone" my computer to a remote drive and removed ACE as recommended. Safari installed with 10.4.11 must have been replaced with X.5 version.

    Well, some plugins add functionality to the tab bar, others block ads, others give you a better search bar... But not all of them are happy to work with the new Safari.

    Leopard

    I am running it o Leopard and am having the same problems. Safari crashes every time I open multiple tabs. Rather annoying. I don't like Firefox as much, but I had to switch over, as it seems a lot more stable, at least on my computer. Also, the new Safari is supposed to be SO fast, but Firefox is running much, much faster, as it will load tabs and windows that aren't the current front tab/window.

    Safari shuts down

    I just wanted to chime in also so that everyone knows. I was using Beta 3.0 prior to upgrading to 10.4.11 which included the new safari. I had no problems while using beta. Now after upgrading to 10.4.11, safari randomly shuts down. There is no rhyme or reason. I could be entering data in a form hit submit and it shuts down. Click on a link to open a new window or tab and it shuts down. It does it when it wants to and usually at the most inopportune times. If anyone comes up with a solution, please pass it on.

    There's a new version of the Security Update that addresses this, if you've not already installed it.

    my problem is speed download enhancer, but it can be any another plug-in that is not 'friendly' with safari upgrades. cleaning up the inputmanagers folder will fix the problem.

    I always get the crash when attaching documents to emails in both gmail and MSOutlookWebAccess. No plugins; nothing in InputManagers folder.
