    I have tried this and found the app crashes completely when you do this..... waste of time IMO

  • media_lush Level 1 (35 points)

    yep, I concur that this happens all the time if you have a lot of tabs open. This happened on the old version of Safari  but only after 8 hours or so; this new version it starts happening just a few minutes in.

    Your entries on 18 & 19 Sept. completely resolved the multiple/all tabs loading in Safari.  Although Chrome is my preferred browser, I always like to use Safari to keep it up to date but the tab problems had me stumped.


    Thank you very much.

    I was having the same problem. Even though I don't use typically use Safari, I didn't want to disable the multi-process windows (via the Debug menu enabled by "defaults write IncludeInternalDebugMenu 1").


    I don't usually use Safari, but was using it to log into Facebook with a different account than my personal one, so I could test games. It turns out that playing a game on Facebook was a very reliable way to quickly reproduce this reloading-all-tabs behavior, and it didn't matter if it was a Flash game or html game. If I opened a new single-process window and played the game, it'd crash. It seemed to crash even faster if it was an html game.


    So I tried all the suggestions that everyone gave in various threads here:

    >> tried deleting ~/Library/Caches/ -- didn't fix it

    >> tried deleting ~/Library/Preferences/ -- didn't fix it

    >> tried disabling Java -- didn't fix

    >> tried emptying the cache (via menu) -- didn't fix

    >> tried increasing to 500MB database storage -- didn't  fix

    >> tried deleting cookies and removing all site data (via prefs/privacy) multiple times -- didn't fix

    >> tried uninstalling all extensions and disabling extensions -- didn't fix


    Finally, I reset Safari.

    Seems to have fixed it for me.

    Sorry, I take that back.

    The problem is still occurring, even after resetting Safari.


    BTW, I only have one or two tabs open, period. Usually FB main page in one tab, and a game in the other.

  • Hunter06 Level 1 (0 points)

    The only way I was finally able to resolve all tabs opening in Safari, was to first export all bookmarks for a backup, clear all caches, then delete all bookmarks, clearing all caches, close Safari, then import bookmarks.


    Sometimes even importing back the Safari bookmarks did not work, so I exported my Google Chrome bookmarks and repeated the above process but this time importing the Chrome bookmarks.  I did this about a month ago and have not had the problem recur with any Safari bookmarks, tabs, etc.  I imagine if you have another browser's bookmarks (FireFox, et al) that you could use those exported bookmarks to import into Safari.


    Hope this helps.

    Completely resetting Safari (and losing all bookmarks and whatnot) did not help.


    When I run an html game in a single-process window and it crashes, then the report consistently shows Thread 0 crashed and the stack trace indicates it happened when playing audio. It always shows the audio stuff in the stack trace. So I'm assuming that the problem is an audio bug, and that there's nothing I can do about it until Apple fixes it.


    I'm running Safari 5.1.2 (6534.52.7) on a MacBook (aluminum MacBook5,1) still on Snow Leopard, w/8GB ram.

    Try WebKit Nightly Build  To me it doesn't solve all the problem, sometimes wvprocess crashes anyway, but now the reload are less frequently.

  • jynk Level 1 (10 points)

    This has become a major issue since latest lion update 10.7.3 & none of the suggestions here have helped.


    Cant disable Multi-process windows neither as use 1password constantly. Really annoying and dissapointing..!

  • qap Level 1 (15 points)

    Yes, also the 5.1.3 update of safari "keeps" these random reloads I'm with safari 5.1.4 for the developers,  I will see if it crashes any (the reload is equal to say "webprocess crash", check the crash in your console, you will see a lot of webprocess-crash.)

  • qap Level 1 (15 points)

    No way... Safari 5.1.4, the same... All it's wrong with safari 5, Apple try it again...

  • ScaryHands Level 1 (0 points)

    Isn't just easier to say "F**k off Safari and Apple" and use Firefox? Until it won't be fixed, I will use Firefox. What is wrong with you Apple?

  • jynk Level 1 (10 points)

    just upgraded to 5.1.4 and the problem is still there!!! And everytime the pages refresh thery log me out of anything im logged into. **** it apple...

  • Nate B- Level 1 (10 points)

    I had just switched to Chrome a few days ago because I had it with this problem, saw the Safari update notification yesterday and got excited. Jumped back into Safari and within seconds saw that the problem was still there. I'm very disappointed at Apple on this one. I prefer Safari, but I am so sick of losing my work with this page refresh thing. Ugh.

  • dkolodziejski Level 1 (0 points)

    I have this exact problem and it seems to have gotten worse with 5.1.4.  Now, my pages all reload every 15 - 20 minutes.
