    I hope not, I'm just about done downloading it.

    I hear repairing permissions helps, though.

    Had problems with it but then some user suggested that I should repair the permission and so I did.

    Everything is great now.

    i should clarify... this is with 2 windows open and about a dozen tabs in each browser... it wasn't crashing/locking up under DP3...

    still doing it today :(

    I've had pretty bad Safari issues since downloading DP4. First is that the window will not open when I open the app. Workaround is to right click the icon in the dock and then click again on the window to bring it up.

    The worst part is that the address bar will not allow typing. Again I found a workaround to click the "tabs" button which seems to unlock the address bar again. Performance in the browser has been good so far.

    Tried repairing permissions but nothing changed.

    Safari locks up when I try to type an address in the URL bar and the favorites pop up, they start flashing real quick. I am forced to close and open Safari at that point.

    Safari is messed up for me as well. When typing in an address in the address bar, Safari crashes. Had to switch to Firefox, which is working fine.

    Fixing the permissions did not Change anything for me...

    It's weird for me.

    First off, cmd+t to open a new tab can take 3-5 seconds to open the tab.

    Second, if you have the bookmarks/favorites bar visible, it randomly hides/shows itself.

    Also, sometimes the tab bar disappears and I can't see which tabs I have open unless I do the new 'tab view'.
