Hi guys
I've just got a brand new MacBook Pro Retina 15'', 500/16GB, the model you can find now on the store.
Well, everything great, obvious! apart from 1 thing a noticed since from the very beginning:
safari (v9.1) is slow! To be precise, is slow in some pages/situations.
I have no problem at all in general use, but for example when I open a pdf within a safari tab in scrolls slowly, and, even more strange, when I use whatsapp web, it takes several seconds (seconds!!) to show me the emoji panel! (this problem has been discussed with no solution still here: https://discussions.apple.com/message/30105207?ac_cid=tw123456#30105207)

Any suggestion? As I said it all started since from the first startup of this machine, and I did not import any previous backup.
I tent to think about a software issue, is there anything I can try? empty the cache or similar? thank you guys!

p.s. the same pdf and whatsapp web work obviously seamless in e.g. Chrome ;)

1. Can you share the PDF document with us?

2. This is a compatibility issue between WhatsApp Web and Safari. (When you first use WhatsApp Web, it advises you to use Chrome or Firefox for the best experience.)

1- I sure can, but it happens with every pdf I open within safari!
2- I know of that issue, but I am also sure that it worked perfectly on my previous MBP 2011, with safari, :(

Are any relevant messages written to the system log when you open a PDF document in Safari? (You can view the system log using Console.)
thanks for your reply!
I must confess I am not so familiar with the console..
However this is its appearance once
- closed safari
- cleaned the console
- opened safari
- pasted a link to a pdf

anything strange?
