    Leopard Problems on MacBook
    First here are my MacBook' stats (in case that it may help in providing a more useful reply):
    Processor: 2Ghz Intel Core Duo
    Memory: 2.66 MHz

    List of problems since installing Leopard that did not exist with Tiger:

    1. Slower start-up time. It takes longer to boot up.
    2. Mail and Safari are some what unstable. Not unusable, but 3 out of 10 times, they crash.
    3. The tab shortcut in both Firefox and Safari do not work.
    4. Some Quicksilver plug-ins do not function, such as the dictionary plug-in.

    It is worth noting that I preformed an Upgrade and not a clean install. Should I back up my system and then attempt a clean install? If so, would I be able to backup my system with Time Machine, then restore my system after a clean install? I need some advice as to what would be the best method in clearing up these problems. Thanks a bunch to those who reply.

    I don't have any advice for this, but will add that mail is having issues remembering my password. Worked fine overnight from Saturday to Sunday. Sunday I got prompts on and off through the day. Considering it's set to check ever 5 minutes, this is odd.

    Then, late last night it asked every time it checked for mail. Perhaps this is an issue with the keychain, I'm not sure.

    I did a clean install of 10.5.

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro: 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo ~ 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM ~ 160 GB HD ~ 15" Glossy LED Screen
    For the ones that just did the update I would check to make sure there aren't any Leopard updates for any of the applications that are not working properly. I know I've read that there have been a few to come out to make them Leopard friendly.

    Safari and Mail? They're bundled Apple Apps.

    OP

    1. Slower start-up time. It takes longer to boot up. - It's probably loading slightly more data, so to be expected, as long as the difference isn't huge. Mine actually boots quicker, but I did a clean install.

    2. Mail and Safari are some what unstable. Not unusable, but 3 out of 10 times, they crash. Definately a problem here. Did you have the Safari Beta previously? If so, you should probably check which version Leopard is running.

    3. The tab shortcut in both Firefox and Safari do not work - You could try re-setting Firefox and try again - but Safari should work

    4. Some Quicksilver plug-ins do not function, such as the dictionary plug-in. No idea, don't use it.
