Currently Being ModeratedNov 24, 2005 9:15 AM (in response to luba petrusha)Same thing here. This just started and I notice it on the CBS Marketwatch site. I have never had any problems with Safari til now. Tried it on my wife's iMac and got the same result.
Safari has also slowed down.iMac G5, Mac OS X (10.3.9)
I also find that Safari crashing seems to depend somewhat on my connection. At work, where I connect via ethernet to a LAN, just about any time I try to connect to a video or audio stream, I get a spinning beachball and then Safari disappears. At home, via Airport and DSL, it's much less common.
But it does seem overall much less dependable than it used to be.G5 iMac and G4 12" Powerbook, Mac OS X (10.4.3)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2005 2:12 AM (in response to luba petrusha)This has similarities to my problem, in which Safari freezes while loading secure servers. Mail also freezes when trying to open certain messages. Both end up leading to a forced restart. Firefox does not suffer the same problem at all.
I have just discovered I get the same problem when accessing other servers on our small office network. I note you are finding differences depending on context.
My thinking therefore at the moment is that this is something to do with the way Apple apps are accessing the network, rather than a problem with the apps (Safari/Mail/iphoto) themselves.
But as for what routines an Apple app uses that others don't, i am out of my depth. Sorry no solution, but may help with analysis.17" Powerbook, Mac OS X (10.4.3)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2005 8:14 AM (in response to luba petrusha)Hmm, I've been monitoring these safari discussions in an effort to find a solution to my safari frustration and this seems as good of a place as any to dive in. Running Safari 1.3.1 (v312.3.1) on OS10.3.9 iMac G4 flat panel with 1gig of ram. Seemingly out of nowhere (maybe two weeks ago now) safari will "hang" with the spinning beachball for 1-2 minutes. It may be triggered by something as inocuous as the down arrow in the scroll bar. I have gone to "Force Quit" and after a moment with this window open safari turns red and it says "not responding" next to it. Force quit will close it immediately but if left alone it recovers on it's own (after the 1-2 minutes). I have done nothing to update or install on this mac for months. Have tried the various suggestions seen here and elsewhere with cleaning out cache, repairing permissions, cookie removal, etc., but to no avail. The problem is so frustrating that I've gone to Camino as my browser...safari may hang 5 times while navigating throught the pages of one web site.
I wish I could tender more helpful information instead of just adding to the list of problems but I'm out of ideas for potential solutions. I really have become used to Safari and have had no complaints until now so I would love to find the answer.

Same thing here. This just started and I notice it
on the CBS Marketwatch site. I have never had any
problems with Safari til now. Tried it on my wife's
iMac and got the same result.
Safari has also slowed down.
I have the same problem with MarketWatch. Have not found a solution yet.
PowerBook Mac OS X (10.3.9)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 1, 2005 7:04 AM (in response to luba petrusha)Same problem here. Safari keeps crashing, even after a fresh 10.4 install. It quits after a few minutes and clicks with messages like these.
I'd love to use safari, but I switched to firefox.
INtterestingly this problem only happens on my G5, not on my PowerBook.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 10, 2005 11:57 AM (in response to thomas witt)I oddly enough, have two brand new computers, the G5 iMac and G4 Powerbook. One I bought, the other was a replacement for a 2.5 year old Powerbook still under warranty. Both have the same crashing problem.
I transfered all my old settings to both of them. I don't recall the crashing happening with the older computers, but I lost use of them for almost a month, and was working with an old G3 laptop (Wallstreet). Was there an update that came out in the mid-October to mid-November window that could be causing this?
Firefox does let me work around the sites that crash Safari, but it's inconvenient. I still mostly use Safari, but have begun using Firefox more for my blogging (blogspot is not very Safari friendly) and web-mastering (Network Solutions ditto).G5 iMac and G4 12" Powerbook, Mac OS X (10.4.3)
