    Hey, I went to visit a website and it completely crashes safari but it works fine in firefox?

    can someone else try it so I can find out if it's my safari that's the problem or if it's a general issue.

    the website is 100% legit - its a music shop based in Birmingham, UK and I've ordered from them many times with no problem whatsoever.

    It doesn't crash Safari 3.1.2 on a PPC running 10.4.11. But I guess that doesn't help you.

    All fine on Leopard 10.5.4 and Safari 3.1.2

    though my uncle has a the same problem with safari 1.3 on his panther machine. I'd like to know more about te javascript idea to help him with that.

    On a Mac, go to the app menu "Safari" next to Apple menu, and "Report Bugs to Apple"

    On a PC, go to Help menu and report bugs.

    I'm on 10.5.4, Safari 3.2.1, on an MBP 2.33GHz.

    Well, as you can see, I am. It still crashes.

    What's weird, though, is that Omniweb 5.7 doesn't crash on that site. It's certainly an "Apple-bug", and not a question of not being "Up to date".


    You hit the nail on the head. I disabled javascript from the menu, and guess what – safari didn't crash.

    Certainly a bug with Apple's implementation.
