I wonder if anyone can help - or has the same issue.


I am running the latest version of Safari (6.0.2) on my Macbook Pro Retina 15", all software up to date.


Since having the MBP Retina, I have had a number of issues with websitesin Safari, where parts of different website pages overlap, load ontop of each other, or fail to load at all (please see attached images). This happens on most websites, including larger organisations such as Sky News, Yahoo, eBay etc. Incase it is of any significance, the issue also occurs when filling in text boxes on safari where the words flicker in and out of screen, and I have to highlight the passage or text box for them to re-appear.


In an attempt to resolve the issue, I have:

- Reinstalled Safari

- Reset everything in Safari

- Tried another user account

- Tried another machine (it doesn't happen on other Mac's as far as i've seen)

- Repaired the disk, and permissions



I would be greatful if anyone could contribute any ideas or help to resolving this issue please?


Thank you very much.

    I can't see the screen shots, but I've had problems in the past with Safari 6 not properly displaying web pages particularly parts of the page (like bars that are supposed to stay at the top and bottom of the screen as you scroll) will end up in the middle of the text.   With 10.8.2 my I haven't had them. 


    If you have any 3rd party software like Java, Adobe, etc make sure you have the most recent version installed.  If you update any of these it may be necessary to restart.  Last check any extensions you have installed with Safari (preferences > extensions tab) try disabling them quit safari and check for improvement.

    Thanks for your reply.


    I too couldn't see the screenshots posted yesterday, however, today they appear correctly - once again i'm not sure whether this was a problem on the Apple forum or my machine.


    As mentioned into the brief, I have kept all software including 3rd party software up to date (these include the safari extensions) so no luck there i'm afraid.


    Thanks anyway for your thoughts, I think I may have to try and contact Apple directly regarding this issue.

    Update: After speaking to Apple I deleted the Library Daemons, Caches and a few other various files. They also had me perform a disk repair, a permissions repair in the recovery partition, and once again reset Safari switching off any extentions - no luck.

    From here I was advised to reinstall the OS on the mac, i've done this ... yet still NO luck in resolving the issue. Granted the issue appears less, but still happens. The next step i've been told is to take it to an Apple store to be looked at.


    If anyone else has any ideas, please feel free to contribute, thanks in advance.

    Update: I've been informed it's a problem some users are experiencing with Safari and that an update solving the issue should be coming soon - so keep checking updates. Thanks to Apple and everyone that's replied.
