    Safari quitting problems
    hi all,
    recently i have been having problems quitting safari.
    i would as usual open safari using quicksilver
    then browsed around
    then press apple+q
    and it has the rolling beach ball and will never quit unless i force quit.
    yes i have restarted many times, reset safari, opened safari from dock and applications folder but the problem still continues.
    thanks in advance

    What version of OS X are you using?

    What version of Safari?

    What plug-ins have you installed?

    Why are you launching it via quicksilver? Sorry, I have a real hard time understanding why people think this is a good app for launching things like Safari - I am betting this is the issue.

    Safari takes about half a second to lauch from the dock. Do yo uhave the problem when launching Safari just from the dock?

    Sometimes I lauch Safari from SpotLight...if I'm too lazy to take my fingers off the keys. It takes just about the same amount of time QS did.

    I just press Command + SpaceBar then type the first 3 letters then press the down arrow and then Enter .... I have my Dock set to Hide so using SpotLight can be the quickest way at times.

    I hate using the dock and the mouse, prefer kb shortcuts and quicksilver.

    I've been having issues with Safari today, it just seemed to hang on sites with flash. I just trashed the preference file and everything seems fine so far.

    Quit Quicksilver and see if it still happens. If QS is the culprit restarting and doing things like rescanning the catalogue can help.

    Possible solution: A mac-savvy friend recommended that I delete the safari preferences file from home>library>preferences. the file should be called mac.apple.safari.plist. i did this and it's been fine so far. from what i'm told, the prefs file can get corrupted occasionally and can cause problems. once deleted, a new file is created the next time safari is booted up, and all you will lose are any customizations you may have made - bookmarks stay intact.

    Does this sound right? Can anybody back me up on this?
