Safari and 10.5.7
Posted by: iaJim
Date: May 15, 2009 08:30AM
Is anyone else having problems with Safari becoming unresponsive since the 10.5.7 update? I can go to one site, but when trying to navigate to another site, it's an unending spinning ball. It's unusable on my MBP, and happens occasionally on my G5 2.5.

Anyone else? I'm using Camino right now.

I get the same with 10.4.11 and Safari 3.2.1. I usually quit and relaunch if it is bad and that helps. Also running Onyx to clean up the system seems to help. I've wondered if it might be sites with flash but not sure.

The delays in Safari have been getting irritating enough lately (having to refresh links that haven't come in also) that I'm thinking about using FFox more... just haven't done it YET. I'm still on .5.6

i know this doesnt help -- but we are good here

MB 10.5.7/Safari 3
imac 10.5.7/Safari 4

have you thought about giving 4 a try? or if you are using 4, have you thought about downgrading back to 3?

I assume you've cleared caches and maybe even tried tossing the .plist? Also, make sure you're running the latest version of things like the Flash plugin. It's up to version 10 now. I'm also very pleased with the ClickToFlash plug-in (blocks Flash animations in Safari until you choose to view them, allows whitelisting too).

Post back if you figure it out...

I'm using Safari 3.2.3. I'll try a couple of the suggestions. Thanks.

OK, I emptied the cache an repaired permissions, and Safari is working much better.Maybe not as fast as Camino, but OK.

Thanks!

Problem is some sites are actually made with Flash as well as some functionality that is used in some sites. So yes, you block Flash animations but you are stuck if you need a site that is build on Flash or uses Flash functionality. And that is, of course, if Flash actually is the culprit.

But the beauty of the Click to Flash plug-in, as I said Joe, is that it has whitelisting built-in. So, you come across a site that requires it, and you simply right-click on the blocked content and choose "whitelist xxxxx.com" (or some such language)... Works fine from then on! If you later decide you want to block flash from that domain again, the whitelist can be edited.

No problem there!

The FLASH plug-in is part of that new 10.5.7 security update.

In fact, despite the news reports ----- the majority of those issues are either outside
the OS, or are corrections to Apache and other aspects of the OpenSource side of the
OS -- found by both security experts and Apple itself.

The "maliciously crafty" little bastids have been out-crafted before they could craft!!

(if you don't get that reference... you need to read the details of the 10.5.7 security updates)

iaJim, I'm having the opposite issue, Safari works much faster since the update!
