    Please provide the url's of some sites that cause you problems.  Otherwise nobody can really know what you are talking about and whether it is just your individual problem or a problem with iOS.

    mobileSafari is actually WebKit.

     

    Do you have an example of a problem site?

    This problem is not only with safari, if any attachment with Maldivan language Thaana even mail cannot open.same problem with tweets, Facebook also.

    Thanks!

     

    agoffice.gov.mv  does freeze my safari.  But since iOS has no Divehi/Thaana font nobody can read it anyway, all you see are little squares.  Do you have another example which you can read?

     

    haveeru.com.mv  (Divehi version) takes a very long time to load, but does not freeze my Safari.  It uses a special webfont technology to make up for the fact that iOS has no Divehi/Thaana font.

    Because iOS has no Divehi/Thaana font, I don't see how you could read this script in attachments, mail, tweets, or facebook, unless you are using a special app that provides the font itself.

     

    In any case, that sounds like a similar bug for Myanmar
