I have not, nor have I ever. I would have to do some research as to how to disable those.

Safari > Preferences, click the Extensions tab and move the slider to Off.

OK, the extensions window doesn't show any, I have never consciously installed any.

BTW, we're running two parallel threads here..... (My fault for starting them, but it was at that time the only way to post)
As you can read in the other thread, I have no problems with Firefox, so we are narrowing it down.

Try the ubuntu live CD. That way - different OS and browser.
That way it's the same machine but different OS - just to prove it's not flaky hardware.
Until there's a fix - you surf AHA with Linux.  :)

Can you upgrade to Safari 5.0.3? I don't think anyone with 5.0.3 has reported having problems.

BTW, to downgrade, go into /Library/Receipts and run the installer immediately after the version to which you want to revert.

Oops, post overlap. Again, no problem with Firefox.

AHA! Missed the upgrade to 5.0.3 Gues what.......working now. So, that appears to be the answer. A conspiracy theorist would have some ideas about why the old version suddenly did not work properly anymore, but I'm not going there....

Thanks everyone for the assistance.

There are a few issues in some networking situations where Safari will not render a web page.  While I was working for a major multinational corporation I could not use Safari to access CNN via the web.  I had to use FireFox instead.

Some of it is related to DNS caching but some of it I could not explain.

Older versions of SMF could cause serious hiccups with Safari and not the other browsers, but the current version these forums are running (although it is two releases behind) should work with Safari.  It may be more of a problem with the network you're on versus Safari in general.  Your best bet is to use FireFox in those situations.

Yeah, I was going to say.. we want to upgrade, but we're waiting to work with the company that customized the forum for us, so we've made zero changes other than some db settings changes today.

Oscar, glad things work for you now.

Of course. My conspiracy hint was actually aimed at Apple though..... ;)

I'm using Firefox 3.6.13 on Mac OS 10.6.5 here and it's always worked fine for me.  But I also visit the forums from Win XP, Vista and Win 7 machines running IE8.  I use Safari on the iphone and ipad.  Also have used Firefox from Linux.

I think it's always a good idea to have multiple browsers installed in case you run into problems.  You have to keep them patched, of course, but it's easy to see web sites that have browser compatibility issues.  IE6 was the worst offender, though.  Pages would look great in every other browser but be crap in IE6.

I was hoping I wouldn't have to say that!   ;D

Damn....thanks for the info.  Being Christmas week, I don't know how many people will be working, but I'm sure someone will look into it ASAP.

Would you mind giving it a shot with FF so we can see if it's a Safari problem or not?

Try backing off and give it a few days rest. You have FF that currently works and perhaps the issue will resolve itself.
