OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Safari And Firefox Crashing After Safe Boot?

May 28, 2012

Using 10.6.8, Mac Pro Intel Xeon.I installed a third hard-drive the other day, and older one I had left from a previous mac. I had been wiped, but I noticed the computer started up very slowly, so I removed the third hd again. Still the slow startups, so I started up in safe mode, but then Safari and Firefox would not open, they would crash immediately during startup.So I rest the pram, but still the same issue with Safari and Firefox not opening, google chrome works fine thgouh. Here the crash report from Safari?

Process: Safari [376]
Path: /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/MacOS/Safari
Version: 5.1.7 (6534.57.2)

OS X :: Safari And Firefox Both Crashing In Snow Leopard

Sep 14, 2009

I've been having problems with Safari and Firefox crashing regularly since installing Snow Leopard last week. I have a feeling it might have something to do with Flash, as earlier today Flash itself was crashing in my browser without actually taking the whole app down with it.

OS X :: Safari And Firefox Crashing After Clean Reinstall Of Snow Leopard

Nov 26, 2009

I loved the speed improvements Snow Leopard gave to my computer, but I knew that I would have to do a clean install sooner or later. Now, Safari and Firefox are crashing frequently (multiple times a day!) and everything is slowing down again. I'm hoping a reinstall of the operating system will fix that. However, I used up all 5 installs on my Family Pack. Can I reinstall Snow Leopard with that disc, even though all 5 installs have been used? Do I need to buy another copy? Can the Genius Bar do the clean reinstall for me while my computer is there for other repairs?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: My Safari Keeps Crashing

Apr 20, 2012

My Safari has been crashing regularly for the last few days. It generally happens soon after waking up the computer from sleep, but also happens randomly after 10-30 minutes use (approx - I'm not really sure). I have been looking at various discussions and think perhaps it might be a trojan, but I am unsure if this is the case and if so, what I can do about it.

OS X :: Safari Crashing Since Upgraded To Snow Leopard

Sep 8, 2009

Ever since I upgraded to Snow Leopard, I've had Safari crashing issues when performing certain tasks. One example is when trying to post image files to places like E-Bay or online forums. When I click "Add image" and select the file to be added, Safari crashes with an error message. The problem is easily repeated. I thought Safari was supposed to be "Crash Proof". I actually have more problems with it now than I did before.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Gmail Not Working On Safari Or Firefox?

May 25, 2012

I can't access Gmail on my Macbook or iMac. They both are connected wirelessly and I have tried Firefox and Safari. Right now it's only Gmail that I can't access but sometimes it's the whole Google domain. I've got the correct DNS settings for my ISP as well as running Safari in 64-bit mode. My Windows PC (on the same router as the Macs) connects to the Google domain fine.

OS X :: Firefox And Safari Page Loading Slow On Snow Leopard

Sep 9, 2009

Since upgrading to Snow Leopard (SL). I have noticed a painfully slow access to sites when using Firefox and Safari. Pages used to load almost instantaneous with Leopard. Now when using either Firefox or Safari on SL, It's taking an average of 8-10 seconds to load a page in my web browser. Feels like I'm on dialup. I have the fastest internet service you can get (Roadrunner Turbo Plus), but for some unknown reason my internet page access is painfully slow. I'm really thinking of using Time Machine to set my Mac back to Leopard, but I really don't want too. I figured I'd wait a few days to see if this problem surfaces, and perhaps a solution can be found.

Safari :: This (and Firefox) Keep Crashing

May 9, 2012

My Safari has been crashing for MONTHS now but recently it would do so more when opening up Youtube on another tab, so I resorted to using firefox for that. But now Safari will crash for NO reason, I'd simply check my email then open another tab and BAM it crashes and lately it wont even let me send the report to apple! And on top of that Firefox wont even open for a second before that crashes too!

Also, I downloaded the new version of Flash, but it wouldn't work on safari and from reading on here I found out the new version wasn't compatible with my mac os x version so I uninstalled and reinstalled the old version like someone said to do and it worked for firefox but it still wasn't working for safari.

Anyways, I tried the "remove flackback" thing and it said "No flashback malware found"... so I have no clue what's going on.

Applications :: Netflix Streaming Causes Firefox/safari Crashing?

Jan 18, 2009

When using either Firefox or Safari, recently, to watch instant movies via Netflix, the browser unexpectedly closes. Sometimes it gets to the buffering stage. I've cleared all my private data (history, caches, cookies...) and redownloaded flash/shockwave. I have the most current Silverlight too.

Any ideas? It worked perfectly since I've had it (about a month or two), up until today.

OS X :: Is It Safe To Get Snow Leopard

Oct 1, 2009

I have not yet upgraded to Snow Leopard because of all the negative things about it. But I am wondering now, with all the application updates, 10.6.1 and other Apple updates, is it "safe" to upgrade to Snow Leopard. I am really looking forward to all the new features, but am happy with Leopard right now.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Starting Up In Safe Mode?

Jun 19, 2012

Restarted macbook in safe mode (i just pressed shift upon startup and logged in) to correct the resolution for my display settings that were affected earlier today when connecting to an overhead projector. The resolution is back to normal, but now everything is delayed. Moving between windows, opening word, opening an email, is all slow and delayed. This computer has never been this slow.

Intel Mac :: Downgrade To Snow Leopard From Lion Possible / Safe?

Mar 30, 2012

I've been reading a lot on the process of downgrading from Lion to Snow Leopard. But it all seems a bit blurry as no actual facts are posted, and I couldn't find out if its only possible for machines that did not come with Lion pre-installed (mine did).I'm really keen on downgrading so I can get back to work. The compatibility with most of the audio plugins I use is not good, so I'd rather just keep working with the previous operating system. I have read a lot of the other threads on this matter, but the main point here is if it is possible to downgrade in a machine that came with Lion preinstalled. I've seen videos on how to do it, but they don't mention if it works on any Mac or only in those that, at some point, already had a version of Snow Leopard installed.

OS X :: Crashing Under Snow Leopard

Sep 3, 2009

I got my eagerly awaited copy of Snow Leopard last Friday and so far am totally and utterly disappointed. I dont know if its just me these things keep happening to but, the desktop picture doesn't appear for about 5 mins after its turned on (even though the pictures are stored locally) No big deal really but things like Photoshop keeps crashing when I try and save a PNG file I have created, Chronosync keeps crashing when choosing a folder to back up to. Basically lots of little glitches causing a screen to come up saying the program has been shut down and do I want to send an error report. Is this just me its happening to, everything I have read seems to be praising the new release but Im finding more problems and considering going backward. I know this is quite generalised but I dont know if its just my MacBook Pro or not.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Keeps Crashing

Dec 29, 2009

My computer used to run fine on Leopard, then i installed snow leopard and it constantly has moments where it crashes all the time. It basically shows that wheel on any application (a usual suspect would be Firefox, which i've never had trouble with before) for maybe 30 seconds and then goes back to normal for another few minutes or it freezes on an application and it needs force quitting to get it working again. I can go whole sessions without this happening then other times i'll turn it on and it won't stop crashing like that. I'm on the 10.6.2 update version.

OS X :: Applications Crashing Lot With Snow Leopard

Oct 31, 2009

Just in general home usage I'm finding a variety of general applications ( Safari, photoshop, Excel, etc. etc. ) seem to be a lot more crashy then they should be. This often seems to be linked with 'doing something' such as uploading pictures in safari, printing in excel, saving a photoshop file etc. Just general things like that.

Software :: Snow Leopard App Crashing?

Dec 3, 2010

I have had intermittent crashes of Chrome, but now and experiencing more frequent application crashes with everything from Mail to TextEdit. textEdit is now very weird - when I open it opens with my last doc, but I cannot Save it or do almost anything without it crashing. I also had the computer freeze with a blank blue screen when I came back to it the other day. In addition, now my computer will not go to sleep from a user login, but when I log out I can select sleep from the user login panel and that works.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Mac Is Crashing Regularly

May 30, 2012

I am on the latest update of Snow Leopard. It seems that if I leave the computer to go to the screensaver automatically, chances are that it may crash. I haven't changed my energy saver preferences for months - so if it is related to that it's not something I've changed.Looking in system.log you see lots of messages at crash time of "received notification of WindowServer event port death".Apple, are you investigating? This looks to me to be a serious problem. One of my colleagues is experiencing something similar. I switched to using using a mac in 2007 and immediately found it to be a better machine in every way (usability, reliability, design) than my previous windows laptop. [code]
