    Hi

    just to follow up. i used most of the utilities on onyx and i've gone a record hour or two without a beachball.


    Confirming you used Onyx's Snow Leopard beta version? If not, download it and rerun Onyx.

    Rejohnsonil....hope it stays fixed for you. Not to cast a dark shadow, but you said it's worked before only to return after a few hours. Just curious, what makes you feel different this time?

    Also, fyi in response to the post about which version of Onyx, I'm still running Tiger, so none of my experiences necessarily relate to Leopard/Snow Leopard.

    well, it's been all day now and not one beachball. i should've said that "within a couple hours max" it beachballs.

    this morning, over, and over (even after re-booting) it would come back within a few minutes. so it was a good start for this morning's behavior.

    now i'm really convinced i'm beyond the worst of it!

    thanks again.

    Hi
    We have problems with a hanging beachball on the www.nike.com - go through to Canada as a country. It simply hangs and we have to force quit every time. I have reset Safari and have tried it on different users. I selected Never on RSS and do not have a Syndication file. No matter what I have tried the problem persists. The website is accessible no problem on a PC and other websites work fine on the Mac. It makes no sense to me. I know next to nothing about computers and less about Macs than PC's. So if you have suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it but they will have to be Instructions for Mac Dummies please. Thanks

    Same thing here, but I'm not sure if it's a Safari 4 thing or a Snow Leopard thing.

    I'm having the same problem (under Tiger), apparently after I come from Top Sites and waiting for a page to load.

    I reset Safari, and run Cocktail to do the crons and repair permissions. This latter seems to have fixed the problem for some days, and then the spinning ball appeared again.

    I have no .broken files in the Syndication folder. I guess it is something Safari breaks during the use.

    Very, very annoying.
