Frequent Safari crashes

Your AJAX is borked in Safari.

Frequently on posting replies, Safari will crash when updating page content.

  1. Still happening, FYI.

    There are Mac users out there in the universe, guys.

    Two different machines, and posting replies crashes the browser roughly 70% of the time.

    1. I've had no problems with Firefox on Mac, Josh. Maybe consider switching browsers?

      1. I'm using Safari too, and it has crashed twice on Chowhound this morning--once when I was posting (the post did go through, though the browser crashed) and once when I was just reading a post. I may look into trying Firefox.

        1. Yeah - the posts go through OK. It's when the post needs to be written to the browser after submission that the problem occurs.

          1. Except now it just worked fine. :P

            1. It's still happening.
              It's not just when posting a reply; sometimes I'm just switching from one board to another.

                I have this problem on occasion...When it does, I do make a 'report' to Apple in the box provided...

                1. re: ChowFun_derek

                  just happened to me again...again I made a report....it actually "forgets" my name and password for all my email accounts on gmail, yahoo etc...I have to reenter ALL of these again, everytime Safari crashes....

                  It's happening to me more lately. Perhaps the MacOSX security update the other day ...

                    From your mouth...to the cooking gods ears!

                3. I use three different macs on this site and I've never had a problem running safari. When I have had a problem elsewhere emptying my cache often solved it.
