Hello!

I just installed Safari 5.1 under OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard  and the bundle CosmoPod 4.5.1 (latest version) was crashing Safari when I tried to open it.

Are you also having the same issue?

I went to /Library/Application support/SIMBL/Plugins/ and removed CosmoPod.bundle

then, Safari launched without any problem!

I'm waiting for an update from Cocoamug software.

    Hi Alain

     

    I emailed the Cocoamug developer earlier today. Have not heard back. If he replies I'll post it here.

    Hi there!

    CosmoPod has been causing Safari crashes for months.

    And they've known it for months.

     

    The following link has the results from a search here for Cosmo.

    A very warm welcome back to Starman!

    SOOO happy to see you again.

    Thanks so much for figuring this out, Alain.  Safari crashing on startup has been driving me crazy all day!

    HI Matt

     

    When Safari crashes, sometimes there is an indicator on the Crash prompt pointing to the culprit.

     

    When I started Safari 5.1 today, it initially crashed. Cosmo Pod or the developer's business name (don't remember which) appeared. Do you remember if that prompt appeared on your system?

    Same here.  Knew something was wrong when I couldn't customize the toolbar.  Removed Cosmpod and all works OK

    Thanks Klaus. BTW...who papered the walls in here???

     

    And from the developers of CosmoPod there's this:

     

    Dear CosmoPod registered user,

     

    Thank you for writing. With the release of Safari 5.1, you have encountered an incompatibility problem between CosmoPod and Safari. I have been working hard on a fix for this and will provide a free upgrade version of CosmoPod in the next few days that will solve this issue. Thank you very much in advance for your patience and understanding.

     

    Best Regards,

     

    Marie

    Cocoamug Software

    Hi Starman--

     

    Thanks for the response, but I was getting nothing from Safari on the crash.  On launch, I'd see a blank window, it would look like my homepage would start to load, and then Safari would just abruptly quit.  No crash message or anything.  It seemed like there was a problem with some extension, but I couldn't load Safari to see which extensions I had installed.  I removed everything from the Internet plug-ins folder, trashed preferences, etc., but nothing worked.  I had forgotten about CosmoPod, and seeing as it lives in a relatively non-intuitive place, it didn't occur to me to look there. 

     

    Anyway, seems like we're all hopefully back on track with Cocoamug taking care of this.  Thanks again for your response, and thanks again to Alain for figuring this one out.

    Thanks for posting the solution guys, and sharing the response from the developer.  It's a great plugin, so I'm really looking forward to getting the updated version.

    Same here, but how come I don't have a SIMBL file in application support...

    Can't fix it

    Have similar problems.  Mine doesn't crash, but the Cosmopod logo in the menu bar disappeared and re-installing it didn't bring it back.  Will patiently wait for the update.

     

    Other Safari 5.1 problems I've encountered BTW:  I can't print from safari.  Once a Print command is sent, the "preparing" window launches and never disappears until I force quite Safari.
