    Does Mountain Lion fix the bug that keeps Safari 5 from loading every once in a while? Sometimes I'll be on a page, then go to another page, it doesn't load, and then when I click on the address bar to see if it'll load quicker, a message pops up saying that the pages aren't loading and asks me to load the pages again (I forgot the exact wording of the message). I hit the load pages button that shows up on the message, then all of a sudden the pages load again. It's really annoying when it has to refresh pages like that, especially if I'm watching youtube/netflix, or downloading something. Does Mountain Lion fix this?

    Never saw that happen under Safari 5 so I don't think it's a bug.

    Yeah, it happens on mine every once in a while. I'm running a macbook pro 13 inch 2010 model. Safari 5 has been doing it ever since I upgraded to Lion on release day. I've also done a clean installation of Lion, and it still does it. It's not the wifi, because it's done it on other networks too.

    It's been doing that to me, but whenever I click "reload", it reloads the page, but doesn't show anything. I just have a blank white page. I'd submit a bug report, but can't predict when it happens.

    Not seen that problem here (three separate Macs).

    Thats strange, I have not had that issue with Safari 5. Safari 6 does not have the issue either.

    If you are still getting that problem you can try the Lion version of Safari 6 Beta.

    I didn't have that specific problem on Safari 5.1 but it crashed at least once and hour (no exaggeration). I've been using Safari 5.2 beta and it's rock solid.
