Right, cant remember when it first started happening, but quite often on Safari, the page will stop loading, which also means Safari stops working, nothing loads what so ever. The loading bar just stops at like 1/6 of the way there. And to solve this, I have to quit Safari and start it up again. SOOO a
ANNOYING. I thought the recent update would solve this problem but it didnt, or it might be just my computer. Getting very inpatient and disappointed with Apple at the moment. Anyway, anyone have any ideas on how I can fix this?

Imac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    From the Safari menu bar click Safari / Reset Safari. Select the top 7 boxes, then click Reset.

    If that doesn't help, go to your menu bar again click Safari / Preferences then select the Extensions tab. If you have any installed, turn that off, restart Safari and see if that makes a difference.

    And try troubleshooting the Safari .plist file.

    Quit Safari. Open a Finder window. Select your Home Folder in the Sidebar on the left. It has a small house icon. Then open the Library folder then the Preferences folder.

    Move the com.apple.Safari.plist file from the Preferences folder to the Desktop. Launch Safari.
    If Safari functions as it should, move that .plist file to the Trash.

    If you continue to have problems with Safari, login to another user account on your Mac. Try Safari there. Same issues there, log back into your admin account. Launch Disk Utility. Verify the startup disk for errors. If it reports errors, follow the instructions here for Using Disk Utility to Verify and Repair Disks
