safari crash

About 25% of the time, Safari hangs (spinning cursor, must force quit) when I post. I get no confirmation of the post going through, but it alwasy does go through (so it's not a complete disaster). I'm using Safari 1.3.2 (v312.6). This has been consistent for a few weeks.

  1. I'm using safari right now - same version - no problem

    I think you might have another problem - does your battery heat up?

    1. All batteries heat up!

      1. I've had the same problem intermittently, but I'm using Safari 2.0.4(419.3). No spinning pinwheels ... mine shuts down on its own.

        And you're right about batteries, Jim. But apparently some of them spontaneously combust. Or so Apple tells me.

        1. I've never had any problems -- am using Safari 2.0.4 (v419.3) as well.

            I've had the problem twice today....

              I've had the problem intermittently (Safari 2.0.4), and just had it happen twice. I've tried cleaning caches using Tiger Cache Cleaner. I think it might help for a time, then I have to clean the caches again. I tried this after reading about it on macfixit.

          2. I gave up on using Safari. I've been using Camino and it has never crashed on Chowhound.

              I always make a report, mentioning they ever read them?

              1. re: ChowFun_derek

                No, they are not read. however, they are sorted and reports are generated
                and it's likely that if enough people report the same crash in the cursor
                routine, it will be fixed in a future update.The safari developers are possibly
                the most proactive bugfixing group at apple.
