    I am having trouble uploading images to websites using safari. It freezes and i have to force quit. Firefox works fine with no issues. I prefer my safari browser but can't figure out why this is happening. Anybody with similar issues?

    Have you tried to reset Safari and do you have the latest version?

    Does it also happen in another, even temporarily created, user account?
    Have you deleted the com.apple.safari.plist file in Macintosh HD / Users / YOU / Library / Preferences / yet?

    Is it using Flash as its upload engine, like it does in GMail? Make sure you have the latest Flash version installed too. Possibly uninstall Flash, even if it is the latest, and then reinstall.

    The PLIST file stores preferences/settings, maybe it just got corrupted.
