Hey there,


I'm browsing the web using Safari 6.0.5 on a MacBook Pro 15" Retina running OS 10.8.4

From time to time Safari does NOT smooth downscaled images correctly.

The issues seems to occur randomly with no repeating pattern.


I already tried reseting Safari.

Whenever I close the browser the issue is resolved.

Reloading the webpage does not help.

Additionally all tabs are affected. Even if I open up new ones.


I attached pictures of the issue.

Have a look at the digonal lines and round corners.

    Perhaps an extension or incompatible third party plugin  ...



    From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Extensions tab. Turn that off if there are any installed. Quit and relaunch Safari to test. If that helped, turn extensions back on then uninstall one a time to test.


    If it's not an extensions issue, try troubleshooting third party plug-ins.


    Back to Safari > Preferences. This time select the Security tab. Deselect:  Allow all other plug-ins. Quit and relaunch Safari to test.


    If that made a difference, instructions for troubleshooting plugins here.
