    I have hit the key accidently instead of return and poof, Safari quits unexpectedly. Forward slashes are no problem but Backslashes cause an instant quit. It doesn't happen all the time, but just today I hit the key accidently and Safari quit. I reloaded it up again and the first thing I did was type a backslash. Again instant quit. Upon trying it again, it didn't quit.

    The Backslash must be typed in the Google search box to cause the sudden quit.

    Don’t type backslashes?:p

    No, kidding. Try to reinstall Safari 4.0.3 from apple.com/safari and see if that works.

    I'm just going to not type backslashes. I never use them anyways. I just press them accidently sometimes. Other than that, Safari is completely fine.

    Same here causes it to crash. Send the reports to Apple. All creases must be ironed out no matter how small :apple::D

    Alright cool. Happy to see that I am not the only one with this problem. Next time it happens - a report will be sent.
