I have searched all over the internet for some information on the problem I'm having with Safari. It started when I downloaded Safari 5 (I'm running OSX 10.6.4). Sometimes when I type an address into my URL window or click an often used website from my home page "graph" Safari goes to a completely different website. For instance, I was trying to check the weather and clicked on the page on my "graph" and Safari went to Mapquest. So, I typed in into the url window and it still went to Mapquest. So, I opened up Firefox and checked the weather. On occasion, Firefox will pull the same trick as Safari after Safari has sent me to a wrong URL - sometimes it won't.

This past weekend, I was trying to go to Twitter and typed in the URL window and Safari went to some AOL Realty site (that I have never been to) and even after the page loaded, it clearly said on the URL window. Another time this weekend, again trying to go to Twitter and typing it in the URL window, Safari went to Chrysler's website (again was what the URL window said after the page got done loading).

What the heck is up with this????? Safari was slow to load and getting 404 errors when I first updated it to 5, so I've done all of the cache and cooking clearing, reset Safari, reset permissions, etc.

Again, I use Safari as my default browser, so when this happens I will open Firefox and sometimes it will do the same thing that Safari is doing and sometimes it won't. So, not sure if it's a browser specific problem or an OSX problem. My Macbook Pro is about 6 months old and I don't visit sites that are spam or hack type sites at all.

I use my Macbook Pro both at home and at work, so it happens with both my home and work wireless routers.


Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
