More information would help. What are you seeing that makes you think there is a bug in discussions.apple.com? The discussions software is in the process of being transitioned from the old underlying software to some updated software. That has caused some problems.

I was speaking only about a possible safari version 11.1 problem that causes an unexpected "shutdown." One thing that may or may not be related to this is, while doing any Google search and clicking on their search link, an intrusive "take your privacy checkup" appears in the upper right of the screen. It can't be gotten rid of! It gives (2) options of, no thanks, and start checkup. I didn't seem to have this problem the few times I used Bing as a search engine. So I think this problem is Safari 11.1 related or Google related or a combination of both. Also, I enabled Develop Menu in the menu bar and "emptied caches."

Based on what I've seen in various discussions, the Google popup is legitimate and to clear it, you need to set your privacy settings. This may be tied to the new Internet standards the European Union introduced lately.

Try Safari/History/Show History and delete all history items. Quit/reopen Safari and test. You can also try try Safari/Clear History…. The down side is it clears all cookies. Doing this may cause some sites to no longer recognize your computer as one that has visited the web site. Go to Finder and select your user/home folder. With that Finder window as the front window, either select Finder/View/Show View options or go command - J. When the View options opens, check ’Show Library Folder’. That should make your user library folder visible in your user/home folder. Select Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/Cache.db and move it to the trash.

Go to Safari Preferences/Extensions and turn all extensions off. Test. If okay, turn the extensions on one by one until you figure out what extension is causing the problem.

If that doesn't work, try running this program in your normal user account , then copy and paste the output in a reply. The program was created by etresoft, a frequent contributor. Please use copy and paste as screen shots can be hard to read. On the screen with Options, please open Options and check the bottom 2 boxes before running. Click “Share Report” button in the toolbar, select “Copy Report” and then paste into a reply. This will show what is running on your computer. No personal information is shown.
