Posting to chowhound crashes my browser

Hi - I've had this experience twice in a row now: I make a post ( a response in a thread) and my browser, Safari, crashes. It seems like the posts go through, but this is a bit of a drag. Haven't had this happen on other sites? Anyone else experiencing this?

I'm using a Mac Powerbook G4, 1.67ghz, OS X 10.4.8.

    Known issue. There may still be a few extant threads on the subject.
    I tracked down some interesting javascript issues that might be triggering
    the crash bug in safari but the cnet guys didn't seem interested.

    It does appear to be fixed in some long-off future safari release. Maybe.
    Since it's a phase-of-the-moon bug, it's not certain.

      Yep, it happened to me (Mac OS X 10.4.6) about half the time when I was posting to Chowhound using Safari. I was having other issues with Safari, so I switched to Firefox, and haven't had it crash once. Good luck!

        This is happening to me on the office setup, a PC with Explorer. Here I go (crash)!
