WHen I double clickin my safari icon, it bounces for a long time then opens. But then the arrow turns into wheel and continuously spins until I force quit to turn my machine off. This just started today...the machine is only 2 years old...I already did a repair permissions on disk utility...any other advice?

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:


    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)


    ☞ In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.


    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.


    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select

    View Show Log List

    from the menu bar.


    Click the Clear Display icon in the toolbar. Then try the action that you're having trouble with again. Select any messages that appear in the Console window. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message (command-V).

    When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.

    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.

    Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.

    Yeah I just got home from my holiday travels and I got on my Mac and tried to load my safari pages but they wont load. I then reset my computer and my network and still nothing, so I thought maybe it was an issue with my ISP. But I randomly decided to open Google Chrome and all of my webpages are loading just fine. I have no idea why Safari just all of a sudden stopped working. I am currently running on OS X mavricks and everything is completely updated
