    Is anyone else having problems with safari crashing after applying the recent security update? Several things are messing up with safari. One, I open safari and it hangs there for about 5 seconds, then it might crash, or it will open my homepage, then the next page you view it crashes. One of the other things that it does is when I hide safari using ":apple:+h" the window hides, but it is still active in the menu, then proceeds to crash. The exception that is occurring is "EXC_BREAKPOINT". Does anyone know what that means??? Or what I can do to fix it? Maybe roll back the security update? I am running 10.4.9, 2GHz Core Duo, MacBook Pro.

    Try repairing permissions (in Disk Utility) :)

    Have you restarted? If not, you should...

    Restarted it three times after applying the update. I zapped the PRAM and the NVRAM. I repaired the permissions and verified the disk. I also did a fsck in a command line boot up, just to make sure that the HD isn't damaged either. I have done almost everything that I can think of.

    All I can think of is an Archive & Install unfortunately...

    Humm. It is rather serious, and I hate firefox and would rather use Safari, but I don't have time to Archive and reinstall everything.

    Touch wood, no problems thus far on MBP 17".

    I know that doesn't help much. Any applications that might be affected by the updates?

    Never mind. I just did a surface scan of my hard drive and found several hundred bad blocks. That would be why it keeps making a funny noise and crashes all the time. Thanks for your help guys!
