Just recently Safari has been VERY slow for me... I get the spinning wheel for about 10 seconds when I try to go to a page...Firefox works fine and I had no problem with Safari before. I added a bunch of bookmarks but I dont see why this should be a problem. ALSO i initially thought it was my computer that was slow so I was going to try to repair disk permissions but when I held down the shift key at startup my computer stayed on the apple screen FOREVER..even after i let go of shift it was stuck on the screen with the apple and the wheel thingy loading..I had to restart my computer from the back and have been scared to try to startup in safe mode again.. ONe more thing...while cleaning up my HD i noticed the file "mds-crash-state" i tried to delete it and it asked for my password so i didnt do it. I looked it up and found that this was because spotlight crashed, i really dont know what this means, but is it safe to delte this? Sorry for the three questions in one...any help is appreciated! THanks!!
