Running Snow Leopard 10.6.1
Running Safari 4.0.3

For some reason safari has had really bad issues. Every time I open a tab, it goes berzerk, freezes the whole system for about 5 minutes, then works OK for a little while. Just a second ago when I clicked a tab, activity monitor and istat showed that Safari used 176 % of the cpu (Intel core 2 duo 2.13 Ghz), and of course, locked up the computer for a small time (about 3 minutes).

HELP plz help me fix it! I don't like firefox......



If it's snow leopard, its tempting to revert back to leopard. TBH everything was good till I put snow leopard on my macbook.


OH and software update says everythings up to date.

That's pretty amazing, not to mention impossible, mathematically speaking. Are you missing a decimal point there?

Dual core machines have two processors. In Activity Monitor, processor usage is measured up to 200%, as compared with a single CPU.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

We have seen a number of threads about Safari acting wacky following a Snow Leopard upgrade.

What I would recommend is using the 'Reset Safari' feature to purge all caches, cookies, etc. I would also recommend checking to see if Adobe's Flash is up to date:

Adobe - Adobe Flash Player

Following on from Podraig above, ensure the plugins ( if any ) are the latest versions and known to work with SL.

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?
