Safari problem still exists for me!!

At least once a day...Safari f*cks up when I post, and also sometimes I don't even have to post.......I still put in the automatic reports but nothing is resolved...are others' still having these problems, or are they localized to my computer?

  1. Still a problem. Everything up to date. Crashes on replies roughly 20% of the time.
    Same null pointer in some set cursor routine.

      Well ...I'm somewhat relieved that it is not my computer...but still pissed that those a..holes in Cupertino don't fix this!!!
      Thanks for responding...

    2. Safari is crashing EVERY time I hit the POST button. It is additionally RESETTING my browser, which is not cool at all. I will cease using this site if it's not addressed.

        When it 'resets' your you have to reenter all your passwords etc?
        That is what happens to me...

      2. Was actually the first few times. It's working sporadically now for some reason.

        1. Safari will occasionally become unstable for me, sometimes to include the behavior discussed here. I can achieve some success by cleaning cache (stuff buried deeply in the system, not the cache you can easily empty under the safari menu). I use Tiger Cache Cleaner, and I'm sure there are other applications that do the same thing. I also use DoktorKleanor, although I don't know what it does; it asks what's wrong and makes what it thinks are the necessary repairs.

            I use Macaroni and Cocktail..which do periodic "cleanings"..but I will take a look at see whether it offers some additional help..

              The 'caches' that this blackmagicware is 'cleaning' are in /System/Library/Caches
              and /Library/Caches folders. They are *extremely* unlikely to have anything whatsoever
              to do with the specific problem at hand here: a coredump while redisplaying a
              safari page. You can reasonably safely delete the files in these folders by hand
              if you want to rather than paying good money for random software to do
              it for you. Most of what these "cleaner" programs do is done on a regular schedule
              (daily, weekly, monthly) by OS X automatically anyway.

          2. I crash on this site at least once a day, and not even due to posting something, just in the course of browsing. It annoys me no end, but I guess not enough to switch from using Safari to some other browser!

              This is happening to me more and more often, not when I post, but just when I am browsing. It is irritating.
