MIght be an extension or plugin that was compatible with the previous version of Safari but not 6.1.
Try troubleshooting extensions and third party plugins.
From the Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Extensions tab. Turn that OFF, quit and relaunch Safari to test. If that helped, turn one extension on then quit and relaunch Safari to test until you find the incompatible extension then click uninstall.
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.

Having the exact same issue here.
No extensions installed.

Extensions and Plugins disabled make no difference.

Exact same issue here, FedEx shipping page works perfect with other browsers but completely useless in Safari.
This isn't an EXT or Plugin issue (all Apple and and 3rd party have been disabled). Thought it was a Safari 7 problem (just upgraded, but I guess it isn't a version/upgrade issue). Reset Safari, no change, manually deleted everything re Safari & reinstalled fresh, still no change.
If anyone has suggestions (even things they think might work) please post. Would love to quash this LiL bug & post solution for everyone.

It's not just Safari 7, I'm running 6.1 and have the issues on one computer. I'm starting suspect the recent Jave update.

Makes sense GTK. Updated my Java to "Version 7 Update 45". Anyone know if there are any major consequences to downgrading (asking as I know almost zero about Java, even if it can be done). Tried installing the same update again from the Oracle website. It installed fine, verified fine, but did not solve the problem.
If no one replies or licks this gremlin will do the google thing for info and then backup so I can give an older version a go.

I have the same problem with an other website. Filling the text fields of one often used form is very slow. Safari 5.1 and Chrome ist fast. In Safari 7.0 the entered text shows up letter by letter. Deactivating CSS and JS did not help. Reseting Safari did not help. I thought of a problem with autofilling, but deactivating form filling made no change either.
Java is not installed.

Same problem here. Just started with a recent update to Safari 6.1. No extensions are installed.
However, I noticed that the slow down to unusable seems to only happen on the "Create Shipment" page. When I type into text fields on the "Get Rates & Transit Times" page, the response is immediate, as fast as it's always been. No beachballs at all.
Perhaps when on the Create Shipment page, the data travels as encrypted in some new way that FedEx is having an issue with. Note the little lock icons on the Ship tab pull down menu in Ship Manager. The Create Shipment selection has one, while Get Rates & Transit Times doesn't.

The little lock icons just denote the pages you would need to log into your account before use. They are not the problem, some with locks work fine, some without locks are beachball generators.
It is looking more and more like a FedEx issue. I let them know via the support link, and would encourage others with the problem to do the same.

Same issues as everyone has previously described. I called FedEx tech support, and they layed 100% of the blame on Apple. This could get ugly...

I have the exact same problem. I havent tried anything to correct it as it seems everything has been attempted already. Only started happening when I upgraded to Mavericks. Apple needs to send out a fix.

Thanks for the info Svetloslav, sounds like Apple couldn't even be bothered to beta for basic functionality for this update. Be nice if they would step up and offer a fix sometime soon.

It's not FedEx. It's definately Safari cause I have the same issue with some other websites. I just installed 6.1 on Mountain Lion and the slow down occurred. Does NOT happen with FireFox on the same machine.
