This innocent looking .gif seems to bring Safari to it's knees. Uh oh.

Hope this gets fixed in the upcoming 10.4.3 bumper update.

Linkety link.

(It's ok to click on the link. It takes you to an article with a link to the image NOT the image itself.)

crashed Safari right away... i was too curious not to check it out... interesting, lets hope the update will fix this, and the sound issue and then i will be a happy camper.

It crashed Safari (10.4.2 v.412.2.2) straight away for me as well. But oddly when I restored my browser windows using Saft's crash protection, the offending image reloaded fine.

Reading through the comments it seems to be a hit and miss affair, hmmm...

The iBook, but I'm running 10.4 on it (and the B&W G3's on 10.3) now.

Just to clarify, I'm upset because I gave Safari a reason to crash and it didn't. Usually I'm about three pages into posting an article when Safari will randomly give up the ghost...

(Firefox does the same thing. I'm starting to do all my writing in TextEdit and then Copy'n'Paste...)

My Safari 2.0 (412.2.2) didn't even flinch. I'm running Tiger 10.4.2 on a Mac Mini.

I should point out that it eats three Shreaded Wheat for breakfast every day so that could be the difference. :|

even after resetting the cache in safari, the image is still crashing the browser after the update...didn't seem to fix it for me. :mad:

Crazy the second the page loaded Safari crashed. I couldn't even make out what the pic was of.

I think it has to do with the cache.

Clear your cache and reload, then the page should render without crashing Safari.

Tried it before the update on my 1.33 12" PB and it crashed (lagged for a second on the photo then gone). Updated, restarted, cleared cache (Safari > Empty Cache), same thing. Though Safari does seem to be loading pages faster, just not that one.
