    Safari 5 Crashing Problem
    Okay so first of you might have seen Apples new Update for its web Browser "Safari" Safari5

    Well after getting the update (through the Software Update Application) I restarted and launched Safari. only to be greeted by "The Application Safari quit unexpectedly"

    So I launch it again... Same thing. Restart and launch again... Same thing. Go to the apple site and download the specific Safari 5 for Leopard (10.5.8), install that, restart... and low and behold the same problem...

    So I reverted to a backup ad got back my old reliable Safari 4

    Just wanted to know if anyone else is having this problem, or is it just me?

    Below: Part of My Console Log After the Crash

    Code:
    Application Specific Information:
    *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInternalInconsistencyException', reason: 'Invalid parameter not satisfying: item != nil'

    Haha, clearly I'm just doing something wrong, either that or Apple hates me...

    Ah well I'l leave it for now.

    Same thing happens to me, posting from Firefox now. Safari 5 won't display any web page or open new windows. On open New Tab it crashes.

    Can you please explain how you reverted to a backup? I don't have the original discs with me.

    Thanks!

    Safari is crashing constantly. 2 installs, permissions repaired. Crashes when idle or trying to go to links. Hangs, beach ball, crash. Disabled plugins, ad blocker, etc. To no avail.

    I think it'd be good for everyone that states they have it crash to communicate what version of OSX they are using - of the posts here, 2 of the people that posted about the crashing are using 10.5.8 - I'd be curious if it were limited to a problem with 10.5.x or if it also exists in 10.6.x

    ---- Added Note:

    Doing a search for Safari 5 crashes on google, I noticed a few threads at apple, and of the threads I saw, most of the people posting about it crashing (either as the OP or just a responder) had:

    1) OS 10.5.x (usually 5.8)

    2) Some plugin that is not compatible with Safari - one of the posts suggested to make sure to remove any additional plugins that could be crashing Safari.

    I have Glims and C2F installed and while I didn't use Safari 5 much last night, it seemed to work just fine. I don't know if Glims is reported to be compatible or not yet though officially.

    I'm on OS 10.5.8 and have NO plugins or add-ons installed. Any idea as to what might help? Or at least a link to downgrade back to Safari 4?

    Thanks.

    I don't have any direct solutions, honestly, I'm having no trouble with Safari 5, but I am also on 10.6.3 w/ no additional plugins.

    You can check a few places that may help like:

    Safari: Add-ons may cause Safari to unexpectedly quit or have performance issues

    I'd also keep my eye on this forum:

    Apple - Support - Discussions - Safari for Mac

    as well as this thread:

    Apple - Support - Discussions - How do I uninstall safari 5 so can go ...

    From some of the threads I read, it appears it's not so easy to go backwards from 5 to 4 as it creates stability issues. I can't confirm this, just relating what I've read.

    My primary focus for the post I added earlier was to point out that I think everyone needs to communicate more details to help find the issue. But it does seem, both from the Apple forum, and from the posts here, most people experiencing major problems are from 10.5.8 or plugin incompatibility...

    Several have used their backups and restored their system to get back to pre-Safari 5

    I keep backups with time machine, so I just removed the new Safari and restore the old one. I think you can still download Safari 4 from the Apple site though...

    Same here. Appears though that Glims is happy with version 5. Be interesting to see if they post an update.

    Regards.

    Safari 5 p
    I'm on 10.5.8 also. Problem:
    1. Safari 5 looks like is has launched (menu bar showing) but if you ask for a new window it crashes. No window ever appears.
    2. As above but this time ask for 'show top sites' a solid grey window appears with nothing in it and then it crashes.
    3. You can force quit Safari - then go to the apple menu and select Mac OS Software and the Safari menu bar appears - too spooky.
    Currently using my old fragile Dell laptop...deep in French countryside so need my Mac back.
    Machine is a G5 and the only thing I've added is extra RAM.
    Thanks
