    Safari 4 Beta Issues
    I just downloaded the Safari 4 beta yesterday and I really like it, except for one strange problem that I've noticed: Hotmail doesn't work. I can open the page for my email inbox, I can click on checkboxes next to my emails, and I can click the logout link, but everything else will not click. I can't change folders, I can't compose messages, and I can't open emails. I had to use Firefox to access my emails in Hotmail. Anyone else downloaded Safari 4 and having this problem? Any solutions?

    Safari 4 Beta Issues
    This is a strange issue, but stay with me.

    I jumped at the Safari 4 Beta when it was released the other day. I installed it, started up the browser, and everything was fine. No problems.

    Then I realized that my MSN Messenger for Mac started to have some really strange issues. For example, if I need to type five lines during an IM conversation, I usually type the sentence, enter, type the sentence, enter, so on and so forth, and I am sure that is what you guys do as well.

    The problem for me is that I had to type the sentence, enter, CLICK ON THE TEXT BOX, type the next sentence, enter, CLICK ON THE TEXT BOX AGAIN.

    Basically, whenever I have to type a few continuous lines in MSN, I have to click before I start to type.

    Now, I am sure most of you are thinking that it has nothing to do with Safari 4 Beta - I thought so too. But it was the only change I made to my iMac before the problem started, so I decided to test it out.

    The same thing happened on my Macbook, and THE PROBLEM went away right after I uninstalled Safari 4 Beta completely. I was able to chat normally again.

    That was when I realized that the two are connected, though I have no idea how. I have tried to install and uninstall the application a few times, and it'd cripple that function in MSN every single time I do it.

    What is the problem?

    Please keep in mind that the public beta for Safari 4 is just what it says it is. A beta.

    Look to the right of the Spotlight search bar, you'll see a little box with something that resembles a bug. Click on it and send a bug report to Apple. Be specific and provide details.

    Regards.

    Same response. Use the bug report. Remember, it's a public beta, any information you can provide to Apple will assist them in releasing a final version as free from bugs as possible.

    Regards.

    No more blue bar. Just a spinning circle next to the blue "RSS" button. For more info on the Safari 4 beta please refer to the "rumors" forum.

    NOTE: Merged threads dealing with Safari 4.0 Beta issues.

    Use this thread to discuss problems or quirks you might find with the latest Beta for Safari.

    Keep in mind that this is a Beta version, so some things are bound to be a little screwy.

    Just be sure to report any findings to Apple so they can work out the kinks!

    Just wondering if anyone has figured out how to keep sites pinned in the top sites, because clicking the "pin" doesn't work for me.

    Just downloaded the Beta version and immediately found a problem with Hotmail. I can only view my Inbox and nothing else. I can't open email or go to any other folder. I reported it to Apple.

    Anyone else having a problem with Hotmail?

    Hi all,

    Another question here. I am actually complete unable to open Safari 4 browser upon updating. The icon bounces and then the app simply crashes upon start-up.

    The error in the log appears as follows, but I don't know how to interpret it!

    Feb 25 22:14:48 name-ibook-g4 crashdump[393]: Safari crashed

    Feb 25 22:14:48 name-ibook-g4 crashdump[393]: crash report written to: /Users/name/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/Safari.crash.log

    What is this 'initializeThreadingEv' symbol that is missing?

    Thanks!
