    I seem to have a problem with tabbed browsing. Everytime i open a new tab to check out a product or a link from a website, it refuses to close when I click on the "x" to exit out of the tab. Any suggestions as to what the problem may be. Thanks

    Thanks Guys

    I downloaded a few updates. One was a safari update. maybe it was the problem. But now it seems to be fixed, I was browsing racingjunk.com for muscle cars, and tabbed browsing seemed to be on the fritz. But it seems to be working now. I also tried to reset safari, but it didnt work. maybe it was just a fluke. Thanks for your help.

    Hmmm, interesting. You might google around if it happens again; it's been so long since I used Safari 1.x that I don't remember whether issues like this were typical or not. Also Safari 1.3.x in particular had a very short active life, as it came out right before Tiger brought Safari 2.
