Safari 1.0 QUITS on me!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I'm talking to you via Internet Exploder to tell you about my troubles. Safari seems to be quitting every time I even do something remotely strange... inputting text in to google *CRASH*, trying to post on AI *BAM* ... it all seems to be related to inputting text... I can type about 2 letters... then I get the spinning wheel of death (SWOD) and it quits.

I've tried reinstalling... but the same thing happens.

What do you suggest? Deleting the cache? Deleting the Safari prefs? ????

Thanks ahead of time.

Uh, ... stop inputting text?

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Safari 1.0 seems to be going the way of iMovie 3. Not ready for prime time. Not even close. It's still a beta no matter what they call it.

I'd just delete the prefs file from User/name/Library/Preferences

Paul - No hacks.

robster - I tried that just now, but it didn't help me.

I'm so sad...

Any other ideas?

Hmmm... I'll have to give that Panther-installing a shot.
Safari doesn't crash on me, BTW.

Me too, and yes while inputing text to Google. It kept crashing consistently but I had stuff working so I couldn't log out, it did this 10 or 15 times. When I had the opportunity I restarted and haven't seen it since. Once with only Safari open I had a visit from Colonel Panic!!!! I sent a Feedback to Apple because this is the ONLY time OS X has crashed without SMB on. Owwww. Safari keeps getting buggier. It still has that weird rendering problem where if you scroll down text and pictures get messed up and you have to scroll up and back down or drag something over the area to fix it. Anyone else seen that?
