Whe I browse sites on Safari (6.0.5), the turn dark-grey after a short amount of time.

This happens on my macbook running OS 10.8.4.

I updated to 10.8.4. and it still won't work. Once the site turned dark-grey, you can't access any button on the site. You have to quit Safari instead.


Not cool!

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5)

    This happens on all websites or just one?

    it happens on many different sites. I also tried to turn off java.

    I reseted safari, emptied the cache, etc....

    no change.

    It happens after I scroll down on a site...

    after a restart, it takes some time until it happens. after the first grey-out, it happens frequently...


    suffix: i just tried to turn on javascript again and the error occured right afterwards. when i turn it off again, the error still happens.

    i have to turn java off, quit safari, restart safari (with the javacripte turned off). then it seems to work.

    From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Extensins tab. If there are any extensions installed, turn that off, quit and relaunch Safari to test.


    If it's not an extensions issue, try troubleshooting third party plug-ins.


    Back to Safari > Preferences. This time select the Security tab. Deselect:  Allow all other plug-ins. Quit and relaunch Safari to test.


    If that made a difference, instructions for troubleshooting plugins here.

    It turnde out to be the extension "FastetTube 2.1.9".

    As soon as i turn it off and restart Safari everything seems to be fine.


    Now I just have to find a working supplement for it...
