    Yes, I expressed this exact concern and he then told me it's a known issue that's being investigated.  I think someone else reported this earlier in the thread.  His advice was simply to keep resetting Safari when the problem arises, and also to see if the "Open New Window / All Windows from Last Session" option had any effects.  Not sure how that relates, but I'll play around with it, I suppose.


    What's sad is I'll probably be migrated over to Chrome and completely comfortable with it by the time this is fixed.

    I have Chrome installed and depend on it periodically for the websites that Safari cannot render well enough to function, but for me I find that scroll lag is atrocious in Chrome. So I'm left jumping back and forth. On my end, Safari is smooth but broken; Chrome is laggy but functional. Meh.

    I agree: when functioning, I certainly prefer Safari and only use Chrome for pages where I need to access Flash.  But I'll certainly take mediocre Chrome over frustrating Safari for day-in, day-out use.

    That said, everything has been smooth on my end since I reset Safari.

    have the same issues (white squares within the webpages).

    once I deactivate GlimmerBlocker  (v1.5.1 -, probelms are gone. Odd!

    The Safari reset bought me about 48 hours of peace.  The problems returned tonight, albeit in a different way: the blocks were not blank, but filled with whatever was previously over that same area.  So, basically, a partial GMail window within a full one in the same area.  Ditto Facebook and some other sites.

    Try Webkit, the latest nightly build is available here



    This has certainly improved things

    Even though this problem is 3 months old I encountered the same problem (Jquery not loading) on my MPBr and it became pretty annoying as a lot of websites use this library.


    If you have the same issue that I had (Failed to load resource you may try that :


    - Open your hosts configuration file (type in a terminal : sudo pico /private/etc/hosts)

    - Check if there's a line (or more) ""

    - Delete it (or them)

    - Save


    It is really strange that I had such an entry in the host file as I never added it... But it solved the problem.


    I hope it'll help people still having that issue and searching on this topic

    Delete this?  (Sorry for seeking clarification, but I am never in Terminal and don't want to screw anything up even worse!)

  • Ludovic Portpin Level 1 (0 points)

    No the line must be "", if you don't have it, your problem doesn't come from that file. Don't delete " localhost"

    Here we go again, same exact problems with the webkit: typing in text boxes shows flickering and errors, large blocks of broken website content, gifs load improperly, and going back a page almost always yields a white screen.

    Dear Apple,


    Please make Safari a functional browser. This is embarassing.

    That is horrible! I get similar ones in many websites. I can't believe Apple has not fixed this. They should be ashamed. They are just worried about iphones and ipads and ignoring the Mac. Happy New Year.

  • JFlynn12 Level 1 (0 points)

    Everyone is correct.  Safari is a trainwreck right now on Mountain Lion.  I was just using Chrome because Facebook was not rendering correctly.


    No idea what Apple is thinking.
