    HI Vince and welcome to Apple Discussions...

    Try uninstalling your current copy of the Flash plugin, then reinstall new, then repair permissions.



    Uninstall Flash

    Install the most recent version of Flash here.

    Now repair permissions.


    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.

    HI,

    Open a Finder window select your Home Folder in the Sidebar on the left. Then open the Library folder, then the Caches folder, then the com.apple.Safari folder.

    Move the cache.db file to the Trash.

    Relaunch Safari.

    Also, if you have Extensions turned on in Safari/Preferences - Extensions, turn that off and see if that makes a difference.

    Hello Carolyn.

    Thank you for your help. I found the problem after doing some test turning off all the extensions and turning them on one at a time and checking for the problem. the problem was with an Extension called (SnapBack v2.7.1 by Philippe Martin) I have uninstalled SnapBack and everything is working good now with all my other Extensions turned on. once again thank you...

    Vince..
