Safari has just started hanging today. It will only happen on certain sites and the spinning beachball is not permanent.
This does not happen if I log in with a guest account.
Any ideas anyone?
Thanks in advance
You could try resseting Safari. You will want to back up your book marks before doing this. This used to restore it to default settings.
To backup book marks go to File > Export Bookmarks
To reset Safari go to Safair > Reset Safari
Safari 6 reset Apple
So removing the preferance file fo safari will be in the local user library.
Quit Safari completly.
To get to this library have finder open, go to Go then hold down the option button and you should see the Library folder Appear. Select this icon an you will be take to your local user library. From there go to the Preferance Folder and Look the file called com.apple.Safari.plist Move this file to your trash or desktop. And relaunch Safari
The first two options have not worked and so I am about to try the third one. In the folder with all these files that I am going to put on the desktop, there is often a lockfile next to it with the same name.
See attached screenshot. Do I delete these ones too?file://localhost/Users/charlesbowes-taylor/Desktop/Plist.jpgfile://localhos t/Users/charlesbowes-taylor/Desktop/Plist.tiff
Firstly, thank you for all your help with this one.
I tried the third option but with no luck. Its so weird that its only on my account that this happens. I suppose a complete reinstall of osx is the only way now?
I am trying to think of what could have caused this. The only thing that I can think of(and you won't believe this) is that I have been downloading a torrent of a forty year old audiobook that I cant buy anywhere on the web.
Could this be the cause of this?
