Problems with Safari video and scrolling.


I have two problems with Safari in Lion on my iMac.


1. Many videos will not play. Or the sound will come on and the visual start about a minute later, but slow and stuttering.


2. There are pages in Safari that will not scroll. I can see only the page that loads but cannot scroll below that. This doesn't happen on all pages, but for instance, it happened on one of Apple's support pages.


I do not have any of these problems in Firefox.

iMac (24-inch Mid 2007), Mac OS X (10.7.3), Using Apple bluetooth mouse

    If you haven't tried, go to your Safari menu bar click Safari > Empty Cache. Try a video.


    If that didn't help, back to the menu bar click Safari > Reset Safari. Select the top 5 boxes, click Reset. Try again.


    If that didn't work either, quit Safari.


    Go to ~/Libray/Caches/com.apple.Safari/Cache.db


    To find the Home folder in OS X Lion, open the Finder, hold the Option key, and choose Go > Library


    Move the Cache.db file to the Trash.


    Try Safari...

    I've given up on Safari here. Been waiting on Apple to "fix" it since 2007. I don't think it's ever going to work right for me. My advice is to use Chrome & Firefox. YMMV. Peace
