    Safari automatically reloading?
    For some random reason safari seems to reload when i open a new page and i have even been receiving the force reload message... I have never had this before and i am not quite sure why i am receiving it as i am not using much ram when i open a new window any ideas?

    Safari version 5.1.1
    Mac OS X version 10.6.8
    i have not installed any new software. I remember it started with the an update of safari. The only other thing i think could have effected it is the secrets prefs pane were I enabled Quartz 2D Extream an another thing called Beam Sync

    You could

    Reset Safari...

    or

    dump the safari.plist file

    or

    try another user account

    or

    reinstall Safari

    reseting did not change anything
    dumping the plist file did nothing
    i only have one user account. Should i create a new one to try it out?

    also the message i sometime receive is safaris webpages are not responding and then it comes up with force reload...

    Yes. You should have a second account just for troubleshooting, if nothing else. I'm not sure that it will help this situation, but it's an easy thing to try before going to more drastic measures.

    well its been a few months now and i was hoping the problem would fix it self the automatic reloading has mostly fix but some times when i open a new tab it will either force reload the other webpages and they will go blank or it will give me a warning saying this action may cause other webpages to force reload -.-

    ok, so don't try a different account, then you won't know if your account is corrupt
