I'm using Mavericks, and my Safari stopped reading the javascript properly.


When I access urls like: http://www.apple.com/ipod/

I can't see the ipod's option.


Another example is my company website, the slide didn't work as in other browsers, is not an code problem, it was working well in safari some days ago.


I think it's something with the javascript and the browser.

Some conflict. any cases?

OS X Mavericks (10.9)

    From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Security tab.


    Select:  Enable JavaScript



    Quit and relaunch Safari to test.

    Didn't work


    Let me find some other examples.


    This work perfect in any browser, and was used to work on safari.

    Now, just crash here and the images don't change.




    It probably will work there, but it's not working here

    That slideshow works here.


    Try troubleshooting Safari 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.

    No deal, didn't fix

    I have no idea where the problem is.

    I logged in another user, and the safari was working fine, without the errors.

    There is no way to really reinstall the safari?


    Or maybe is some app's or programs out the safari that change its behavior.

    But how could I figure it out?

    If the Develop menu is showing and Disable JavaScript is checked, uncheck it.

  • matheusbaumgart Level 1 (0 points)

    It's not checked, Linc. But good shot.

    If I check this, the content appears, but without the effects and position.


    It's show us that there is an conflict between safari and javascript.

    Looks like the browser reads, but don't understand or do everything in the code.


    Another example is, if I open the Web Inspector, a totally gray box appears, no content, if I resize the window then the content appear.

    Guys! I restarted my iMac and now it's working. I think it was some program or plug-in outside the browser.

    Thanks for all!

    I have the same problem. It's ok after restarting but sometimes the problem reapears. I have only 1password extension.

    Same here. I have a Galleria slideshow on my site that isn't working in Safari 7.0.1. Works in every other browser. This version of Safari (and Mavericks in general) is the buggiest I've used in a long time. I think Apple's QA is slipping lately.


    UPDATE - I just restarted and it's working now for me as well. I'm not too confident that the problem won't show up again, though. The 1Password 4 extension I have installed (the only Safari ext I have) seems to stop working after a while as well.
