Mac/Safari posting problem

Science Chick Jun 25, 2006 03:11 PM

Hi folks,
I am using a Mac OSX/Safari. When I hit the "post" button, I get this huge page of coded text. I was inclined to hit the post button again, thinking there was an error. When I went back and checked the board, my reply IS posted...but I wouldn't have known. I've notice alot of double replies from people since the new format began...maybe this is why? General Mac problem or Safari specific?

    I'm replying to your post via Safari (2.0.3)/Mac. No problems.

      ...and this via Safari 1.3. Also OK.

        Actually, my third post (to the new board) crashed the browser. Post went though, though.

        Also, search for author's name appears dead, at least for my name :-(

          Crashed it again. Safari 1.3.2, running OS 10.3.9. Ordinarily a very stable platform.

          More teething problems, I expect.

        I have an eMac, and use Safari. I experienced that same problem very early on. Have you tried the usual things, like restarting and clearing the cache? Honestly, I don't know what either does, but it's what I do first. My problem disappeared, and I'm not sure why. Has your problem cleared? pat

          Still happens every time I reply...no usual restarts, Safari resets, etc don't help. I am running Safari 1.0.3 on OSX10.2.8, so maybe that is the issue. Soon will be upgrading to 10.3 and newer Safari versions. Maybe that will fix things (amongst other woes!).

          There were Safari problems in the initial beta. They were cleared up, but in the past 24 hours or so it's crashed about 4 times on me, always when I am clicking the "Post My Reply" button.
