I tried to do a search in Google that wouldn't be weird or show personal info haha.


This is what happens randomly when using Safari. (I did not edit this photo. There is just random missing spots on the page. I can click the links but I cant see the links.)

It also happens a LOT when I am tying to view photos on FaceBook.

I hit the next arrow and the pervious photo stays up and flickers and flashes over the new one. It sometimes corrects itself or I just hit back and forward again.


Ill try to get one of those too but they would be a photo of someone I know and they might not like that...


I am running Safari 6.0.

    Same problem here. Even on 10.8.1. I think its a Software issue. I didn't try a clean Install of ML again. Maybe that helps? Anyone got the same problem and fixed it already?


    can u check if u got graphic problems in the image Preview on your Macbook? If I select a lot of Pictures and open them on the next on the arrows very fast, the graphics go crazy after some seconds: Suddenly u can see the older picture between images( appears very quickly like a ghost) the cinema-scene in "fight club" but the whole time!


    Anyone got the same graphic problems on his retina?

    I'm having the exact same problem in gmail.


    Just these weird blocks of missing pieces on the webpages.

  • BMcLean07 Level 1 Level 1

    Having the same problem on all sorts of websites. I really hope this is fixed because it really ruins browsing the web.

  • osamuchan Level 1 Level 1

    Same here.

    It looks Safari thinks there is something on it. So, rendering cause problem.

    I also experience this when I scroll table content.

    It never happens on Chrome. I think its problem with Safari software, too.

    One more thing,

    this happens only on Retina display. It didn't happen on external normal display.

    I tried move Safari window onto both display area and happened only on Retina.

    Apple should fix this.

    Still no fix for this? This has been driving me crazy since day one on my 15 inch Retina macbook pro. It might be an issue with Google websites paired with Safari. It does it on Google Drive Documents as well. I'll be trying to read a spreadsheet and parts will start blinking and disapear.

    It comes and goes, reinstalling ML didn't fix it.  Seems to be graphic card related there is another thread about this and it seems to be retina macpro wide including the new 13" models.  I have also seen this pop up on a macbook pro 2011 machine I was trying to help someone diagnose a graphics problem with earlier.

  • carldonlazlo Level 1 Level 1

    Thanks for the info. I was contemplating reinstalling ML fresh and not restoring from Time Machine just in case something weird was coming across. (It just flickered in this box as I'm typing this message.) Very frustrating!

  • Martin Donkin Level 1 Level 1

    Still a problem here too…

    Seeing the same issues with OS X 10.8.2 in Safari 6.0.2 on the 15" Retina MBP. Happens when using either the Intel or the Nvidia graphics card. Seems to be worse with some sites like Google Reader, LinkedIn.  Confirmed I don't see any issues with the same sites using Firefox.

  • carldonlazlo Level 1 Level 1

    Yeah I've been using Chrome with none of these issues. I wonder what an Apple Store "Genius" would say about this.

  • noiseordinance Level 1 Level 1

    So I'm really hoping Apple fixes this. I feel like the internet experience should be top priority for Apple, as surfing the net consumes the better part of most people's use. What's the point of a beautiful retina display when the Safari experience is marred by hideous graphical anomalies? I've had four retina Macbook pros, and all four exhibited the problems above, so reinstallation of ML will definitely not do the trick. Additionally, I've experienced the problem prior to installing third party software. Finally, using the nightly Webkit does not fix the problem, as other users have suggested. Six months of this problem and it still hasn't been fixed. Apple, you are quickly losing my respect, and soon you will be losing my business.

    same problem here on a brand new macbookpro retina. think i'll switch to chrome until it's fixed!

  • rvinny Level 1 Level 1

    Been happening to me since day 1. I am really regretting buying this Retina MBP. Had two regular MBP's prior with never an issue. The Retina MBP? squeaky keys, noisy fan, artifacting screen and now THIS!  Should've returned it in the 14 day window. Should've gone with a regular model and the upgraded display.

  • James9er Level 1 Level 1

    I have been having this same problem wiht my MacBook Pro Retina 15 inch since i got it in November. I usually get the white blank box blocking out chunks of graphics in Safari when i am on Gmail. It seems to be happening more frequently. Also a recent graphic issue was that I reset my desktop display picture, and a few times after shutting the computer down, when i would turn it on, it would randomly go back to the old desktop display picture. Are these issues related? Or is the safari graphic problem different? I guess i will call apple, since no one seems to be coming up with any solution or even acknowledgement of the problem.
