    OK so I've been running Safari 5.0 without a glitch till yesterday, however one site I go to keeps crashing it without fail.

    If I go to http://www.teamtalk.com/liverpool Safari will crash straight away, I've taken what I guess to be the pertinent part of the error report:

    Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
    Exception Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at 0x00007fff5f3ffff8
    Crashed Thread: 0 Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread

    Application Specific Information:
    objc_msgSend() selector name: isEditable

    It's fine on any other website I've tried and I'm typing this now in Safari. Weird thing is that the site was working fine up until Saturday morning, I've not had any updates Friday or installed anything. I've even tried taking Glims off to see if that was causing the issue, problem still remains though. Have downloaded Chrome as it's based off the same engine and that works on the site fine.

    Edit: I deleted the .plist file for Safari as well, no joy on that score either.

    Any ideas?

    Same thing happens with my Safari. Opera works fine though.

    If its just the one page I wouldn't sweat on it but if you want, you can report the bug to Apple.

    Lol, reports already been sent. It just bugs me when something stops working for no discernable reason.

    Fixed it, deleted all the files in ~/Library/Input/Managers and ~/Library/ScriptingAdditions. Works fine now so must have been a corrupt plugin.

    Edit: Spoke too soon, it's just done that same again on that website :(

    Have tried deleting the Safari folder (after exporting bookmarks), and the .plist file to nuke Safari completely but still the same. Have verified disk permissions as well, so short of re-installing I'm at a loss now.

    its all working perfectly fine now... no reboot required or anything. Most bizarre.
