    Add me to this list.  Use both Facebook app and go through Safari.  FB either crashes or fails to load if I try to go to another page.  I have the new iPad, aka iPad 3, and am running the latest software.  So frustrating.

    After trying many suggestions, this is what works for me. m.facebook.com

    Is this really a Safari bug? The web version of Facebook crashes constantly and it does not matter if I use Safari, Opera, Google Chrome or iLunascape. Most other web sites seem to work fine on my old first gen iPad. So what's the issue? Of course I can use the app, but that's not going to give me the full Facebook experience, and neither does m.facebook.com. Any soluions will be appreciated.ntanks.

    I have the first iPad. I had never done an OS update on it since I got it 2 years ago. Up until about 2 months ago the FB website was working fine. Then, as everyone else here is seeing, Safari started crashing when on the FB website. Particularly with high graphic pages. So, my first thought was, maybe it was my iPad. So I finally did the OS update to the latest version. That made no difference at all. FB still crashes Safari. So it is definitely a Safari Browser issue.

    Same thing happening here too. I have a first Gen iPad, Facebook crashes in Safari. Have cleared cache, multiple restarts, without changing the problem. This has only started recently...maybe in the last 3 weeks or so. I have the most recent software running...not the 6.0, as that hasn't been offered to me except on my phone. I wish Apple/Facebook / Safari would solve this annoying problem! ASAP !

    Okay guys...I've been bugging my Apple support guy about this, especially since now it's becoming evident there is a problem out there with Safari (not just me!). I am still convinced it's a problem with the rapid loading...  Sending another plea to support today...maybe you all can report it to Apple as well, not just here. If enough of us start whining about it, maybe "they" will move faster.

    My workaround has been to say the Heck with Safari, and use Skyfire as my mobile browser. No problems there for me anyway.

    Yeah, I'm beginning to think Safari is a loser browser for iPad....even on my iMac I often defer to Firefox. I'll check out Skyfire. thx!

    One more report of exactly the same thing.  Safari crashes when scrolling through pictures on facebook on the iPad.  Hope Apple comes up with some kind of answer.

    I have this same exact problem on my new iPad as well. It did not happen before until I updated to the new IOS . Facebook recently reported that many people were not using their application to use Facebook. I am almost 90% sure that it is the dirty works of Facebook causing this crash because they want you to download and use application instead of using their online website address to access their Facebook page . They want you to sync all your personal contact info with them so that they can steal all your personal info from your iPad. Through Safari this is not easy for them to do but via application it is for them. Dirty bas***** if you ask me. Worked fine in the past with no problems so why all these crashing problems all of the sudden. Guys at Apple are not stupid but guys at Facebook are sneaky and dirty.

    It is not Safari, it's Facebook if you ask me.

    I just bought the new IPad last week and quickly realized that safari kept crashing while scrolling through a timeline page on Facebook. I went to return the iPad thinking it might have been a defective one and bought another one at a different store.  Without adding any apps I went straight to Facebook to see if I could scroll through a friends timeline without a crash but unfortunately safari kept crashing.  I also checked to see if it was only safari that crashed by installing chrome on the first iPad I bought but sure enough chrome crashed as well doing the same scrolling through a timeline page on Facebook.  Oh yeah, I just did an update to iOS 6 to see if that would help but the browser still crashes. Haven't played with the Facebook app to see if its better but I guess that shouldn't be the work around. The browser should be able to pull up the website without crashing. What's weird is that I couldn't get the display iPad at best buy to crash, although their Internet connection was slow to bring up pages when compared to me loading the page at home. Don't know if that helped that display iPad to not crash. Hope you hear from apple soon. I have 24 days left to return this thing, I'm undecided whether to keep this thing or get the Samsung note 10.1 instead.

    Just checked the crash report on my laptop about the issue. It is titled Low Memory.

    Jle4e..low memory? On a brand-new iPad? I doubt it. Have you reported your issues to Apple?  I gave my Apple contact the link to this discussion but he has not gotten back to me....I'm going to call him again and make sure we all get an answer about this soon. This is ridiculous.

    Facebook has a solution for this lol.. If you download the application then it won't crash. This did not happen in the past. With every update they always manage to sneak in something bad to make things worse for the end user.
