    I see the crash with CMD-click. 

     

    One thing that's odd about this is how intermittent it is. That makes it much harder to troubleshoot . . .

     

    Also, everyone: not to beat a dead horse, but please submit this bug directly to Apple. They do not monitor these boards:

     

    http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html

     

    For what it is worth, I _may_ have seen fewer (if any) crashes since I reset Safari (under the Safari menu). Extensions are still on.

    Have turned off extensions.  Problem still happens...

  • Outrange Calculating status...

    Weird... Make sure you turned off the "master switch". I believe we have the situation here where several sources for crashes are overlapping / intervening. For me the must have extension is the evernote extension. I turned off all the other extensions but evernote. Having (only) evernnote extension turned on I work with cmd-click and this works for me. What happens to the cmd-click if you turn off the extensions altogether (I know it is not very practical in real life but pls do it for the sake of testing). Is it still crashing, then?

  • Outrange Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    If you turn off all the extensions but turning off the extension "master switch" and if you then press cmd-click is it still crashing? 

  • Jason Barker Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    OK, nevermind. <5 minutes after saying I had seen no crashes since resetting Safari, I got a crash with the typical console error (". . ..com.apple.Safari: Received an invalid message from the web process with message ID 323002f") . . .

     

    after pressing CMD-T to open a new tab. (Not with a CMD-click to open a link in a new tab, which was what I had noticed previously).

     

    I my try to turn all extensions off if that works for others as well as it has worked or you, Outrange.

  • Michael Battenfield Level 1 Level 1 (135 points)

    Still crashes, though less often.  I turned extensions back on today - but uninstalled all but adBlock.  No crashes all afternoon... until just moments ago.  Crashed out with no report window or anything.  When I relaunched Safari, I immediately went to preferences and clicked the switch to disable extensions... and Safari crashed when I clicked it!!!  Here is the crash report that actually came up:

    Please add me to the crashers... same problem as everyone else and it's been doing it ever since I upgraded to 10.8.  Very annoying and turning off all extentions deleting cashe's etc makes no difference.

  • mamdoj Calculating status...

    Me too.

     

    on a Macbook pro mid-2012 base

    Happens to me too for the last 30 mins. Right click on "open in new tab" - safari is gone. No error message, no crash report.

     

    I started using Safari only yesterday as I'm normally absoutely loyal to my Google Chrome. Ironically, Google Chrome has kept crashing on me too for the last couple days and therefore I decided to use Safari until Google fixed Chrome again.

     

    I was constantly in Safari yesterday and today (writing my essays on Google Drive), no problem whatsoever. Only half an hour ago Safari started crashing out of nowhere whenever I attempt to open a new tab. The computer isn't hot or overly challenged, in fact Safari is the only app open at the moment.

     

    Safari 6.0.2 - No Extensions

    Mac OSX 10.8.2

    Macbook Air 11", 1.8 GHz i7, 4GB

  • isisandgranta Calculating status...

    4 months and still no resolution to this? I have only adblock as an extention (turned off now) but up until this point this was a regular annoyance.

    Crash on 'right click open in a new tab', sometimes many times in a row. Happened on BBC website just now.

    Seriously unless its adblock (never a problem on Chrome)  this is not good news. What's going on?

  • Jianjun Wu Calculating status...

    Crash happens frequently to me when openning a new link as tab. [Safair 6.0.2 and OS X 10.8.2]

    Tried to turn off the extenstions, nothing better.

  • Tomethy Calculating status...

    My Macbook Pro Mid 2009, running OS X 10.8.2 is crashing as well! No warning, no report.

     

    But Opera is crashing as well, as I realized yesterday! Although I'm not sure, if the crashes ONLY appear while opening a link as tab. Will observe it the next days.

     

    Since a few weeks the whole OS seems to be unstable to me. Had also system crashes (sudden reboot without warning!) and then stuck in the boot-sequence while loading drivers as the log said. After resetting pram it worked again. Safe boot did not work.

     

    I also ran the disk utility (no errors except a bunch of permission errors, which seems to be normal?), ran an antivirus software and reset Safari. The Safari-crashes remained so far and I'm slowly running out of ideas...

  • fernandovdutra Calculating status...

    It is a real shame apple didn't fix this issue. It is an even bigger shame the fact that there is no answer about this known bug.

    I really like safari, but with this crashes, chrome is the answer. Hope I get used to it and never need to use safari anymore.

  • track2 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Why do they call this apple support?

    I've given up and moved on to Chrome - it just works

  • Wilkyman76 Calculating status...

    Any update on this issue, as I'm also experiencing this problem with my old MBP. I recenty bought a new Mac Mini Server 2012, and was running ok, and then I stupidly used migration assistant to transfer over from my MBP the old apps etc, and now safari crashes just like before...so it's definitely something to do with my old account, so now I have a brand new Mac Mini and safari crashes!!

     

    I guess I will have to go back to factory settings, and go through the slow process of manually copying across whatever files and docs and apps I need.

     

    Thanks very much Apple....awful.
