Since installing Lion, Safari (often) freezes when launched upon waking from sleep. In addition, Time Maching is unable to perform automatic back ups. My solutions to these problems are to make Fire Fox my default browser and do manually back up. I also avoid using Safari immediately after waking the computer up from a sleep. Shouldn't be this way, but until Apple fixes the problem in the next cat O.S.(Cheshire, maybe?), I find this arrangement workable.

Safari, Time Machine, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    I assume that you mean "since installing Mountain Lion"? You shouldn't be having any problems with Safari or Time Machine. You may need to install the newest version of Safari and you may need to go through Time Machine setup again (there's nothing like having at least one TM backup - I keep two in addition to clones).


    For trouble with Time Machine, see


    For the Safai problem, I would try downloading and installing the latest release of Safari - have you installed the 10.8.2 supplemental update -
