I downloaded safari 6 before upgrading to Mountain Lion. I have a macbook pro just bought it in may (so no not the newest one but the newest one before the retina one)...


Safari was working fine as ever and everything. Then recently when I type it doesn't show what i just typed for a couple of seconds then it shows up. Things on the screen go over one another, doesn't matter what website i go on, it happens everywhere.


Anyone having these issues? As i type this it still shows what i type then it blanks out then shows it again. So annoying.



MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion

    Try repairing your permissions.  Go to applications then to the "other" folder then go to disk utility, on the left hand side you will see a white box.  Select the second option, usually called "mac HD" with that selected click on "repair permissions" in the center towards the bottom of the screen.  Wait for it to complete, then see if this fixes the issue.

    I've been having the exact same problem. What's weird is that when I use Firefox, everything is just fine.


    For instance, I was on a website yesterday trying to click on a link, but Safari kept taking me to another page entirely, as though I had clicked on a different link.


    When I visited the same website in Firefox, everything was A-okay.


    In other words, Safari is displaying content incorrectly, which is weird. This also occurs when I type: words will take a second to appear, or sometimes an entire phrase will be blank, and the words that follow will overlap with the blank phrase, which then starts to blink in and out of existence.


    Really, really weird.


    What I want to know: why would repairing permissions change this?

    Wow, perfect fix!


    I've been patiently waiting for Apple to fix this annoying glitch, but it turns out it was my own permissions that were glitched.  Thank you very much.

    I fixed permissions, but its still glitching. It seems to me it would be a safari issue if it is happening to a bunch of people. In general it seems to act a bit funky too, it hangs loading pages sometimes, etc.
