livepage.apple.com 1x1 pixels
I tend to doubt that it's for that page, since I don't get any such thing, and there's no indication of any attempt to load a 1x1 pixel page. Did you check to see where the 1x1 pixel page is actually connecting to, because it's not Apple.
favicon (.ico) files are the tiny images you see in the browser address bar and/or tab bar for each web site you load, so they aren't a problem.
From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Empty Cache. When you are done with that...
from the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Reset Safari. Select the top 5 buttons and click Reset.
Mac OS: Web Browser Quits Unexpectedly or Stops Responding
Safari add-ons can cause performance issues or other situations
Try uninstalling and reinstalling a new copy of the Flash Player plugin since it's required for streaming video on YouTube.
Repair disk permissions...
Quit any open applications/programs. Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. That can be ignored. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done. Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac.
Caroline, Golden shoes, thanks for the help.
I'm not sure what happened, as I already reset and removed my cache the night before and still the same. But in the morning it was still the same. This morning, I just 'forced quit' the safari app, then restarted again, suddenly it was running normal. Anyway i'll continue to check it out. Thanks again.
I'm facing the same situation here. I've tried everything Carolyn suggested and Safari still opens any page as a blank page with "1x1 pixels" title.
It happened some times before, and Safari always came back alone soon. But now it's happening for about 1 week.
And the most interesting fact: when I reset Safari and it reopens, he creates all the Top Sites thumbnails again. But if I try to click anything, it goes "1x1 pixels" again.
I've also tried Firefox and Opera, and they're working ok. (I'm sending this on Firefox on the same Mac).
Carolyn's advice is solid. But after you have done everything she suggested, don't forget to quit and relaunch Safari. Much of what you are doing effects things that are already loaded into RAM and you may not see the result until you quit and relaunch the program. Sometimes, you might even want to reboot the computer, especially after a disk and/or permissions repair.
I began having this problem this week while I was visiting my parents' home for Christmas. Firefox browses perfectly, but Safari loads the title "<site> 1 x 1 pixel" for any site that I try to browse to, whether by typing in the address or using the bookmarks menu. I have reset Safari (v404) and I have shutdown/rebooted the MacBook several times since Safari first developed this problem two days ago. One thing that is notable about my experience is that I have been using Starbucks wifi and Safari prior to the problem occurring. I have trashed my Safari folder and I have removed AdBlock and ClicktoFlash software, but without any success restoring Safari to browsing functionality. Any other suggestions? Thanks, all.
