Safari :: 4.1.3 Is Crashing Mac With System 10.4.11 On Launch?
Jul 5, 2012
My mac, with os 10.4.11 can't start safari all of the sudden. the ball just goes around, then stops, then goes and my computer cranks away and then it freezes and i have to restart. when i log in under a test account safari starts up there. i've disabled plug ins, trashed preferences, trashed cookies, cache and same thing. (i'm on my laptop now). the g5 however is my work computer and i have to get safari working.
I am running Safari 5.1.7, Mac OS 10.7.4 on an iMac Intel Core 2 Duo machine, and Safari was working fine until this morning when Safari starting crashing whenever it is launched; I have the same set up on a Macbook Pro and Safari is working fine. ¬†
Having read a few posts i have changed the setting for Safari to 32 bit mode which has enable me to launch it, however as this is a 64bit machine that was working fine until this morning that does not really seem like a solution more like a temp fix¬†
Info: iMac (21.5-inch Late 2009), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
Safari suddenly won't launch on my 10.5.8 system on my Powermac G5. The dock icon bounces for a few seconds then gives up. I haven't installed any new software recently.I've tried deleting all caches, preferences and plugins, repaired permissions, etc. It doesn't work when logged in on my spare account either.
I have a MacBook; purchased in Oct. 2006. All has been working fine until yesterday. Safari suddenly shut down and when I tried to relaunch, the icon on the toolbar jumps a couple of times (teasing me as if he is going to launch) and then doesn't open. I did get it to "almost" launch a couple of times and it never opened my home page. It instead, within seconds, it shut down and I got the error message that the application suddenly quit but that my operating system wasn't affected, etc. All of my Office applications work fine but Safari will just not launch..
well my computer has been crashing a lot recently (i noticed it seems to be mostly while safari and itunes are running at the same time but i have no idea if this is the cause of the problem or just a coincidence). I read one thing that told me to check my system logs, so i did and the only thing that i found weird that was around the time i crashed was this, but i have no idea what it means.

I have a new macbook pro 15.5 and had it for 3 months after which the hard drive crashed. There goes the illusion that nothing ever happens wrong with apple... especially my first one which I treated like a baby. So it was taken into a support center, they cloned my hard drive and ordered a new one... 22 days later I get my mac back and everything seems in order. Except when I run Disk Utility it keeps crashing. Funny enough when I run it from Recovery mode from boot its fine. But when logged into the OS (Lion) it launches and starts gathering information.†Then crashes and I get the submit fault dialogue..Anyway here is the log. I have run Onyx, applejack etc but the problem has not been resolved.†[code]
I'm using 10.4.11 on a PB 12" and recently updated to iTunes 8.1. Ever since, iTunes will attempt to launch, getting past the "loading music library" prompt but then crashing immediately following. I've reinstalled the program, and also updated quicktime, but no avail. I can post a crash report, but here are the things that stick out to me: Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001) Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS (0x0001) at 0x6c6f6c00 Thread 0 crashed with PPC Thread State 64
It first started when I tried to add music files to iTunes by draggin them into my library. It began processing and adding them to my library, but then crashed.After this, I tried reopening iTunes, and it crashes on launch.This now happens every time. I can't open my iTunes.
I've tried deleting the added files out of my iTunes folder, and I'm still getting crashing.I've even tried re-installing iTunes -- no luck
Info:iTunes, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 iMac
Ever since I installed Snow Leopard, every so often when I try opening System Preferences, it just keeps bouncing and never opens and says it's not responding. If I force quit and reopen, it'll suddenly open on first bounce. This happened on 10.6.0 and 10.6.1.
For context, I installed SL clean on my iMac Core Duo. The only 3rd party apps in System Prefs is Backblaze, Flip4Mac, GeekTool, Growl, iStat Menus, and Perian. All are up to date.
For the last several days my iMac will freeze a few minutes after launching, then proceed to freeze my entire iMac, forcing a hard reboot.¬†I ran Activity Monitor when launching iTunes and noticed that before the trouble started simply mousing around or scrolling could take up 25% of my processor. Then it would jump up to 80-105% then it would fall to 0% and the system would freeze. If I then immediately used 'Force Quit Applications' I could force-quit iTunes... but only after the system itself had frozen for 10-30 seconds before finally giving me the pop-up asking to make sure I wanted to force-quit. (iTunes Helper never seemed to take any processor power.)¬†iTunes 10 is definitely the culprit.¬†
My setup: 2007 Core2Duo iMac 4Gb RAM, iTunes with 29,000 songs running 10.6.8 with latest updates. I have 185Gb left on my 750Gb drive. I've run Onyx to clear out all caches, and I've even trashed iTunes and downloaded a fresh copy from Apple and reinstalled.¬†
2011 Core i7 iMac with Lion. Noticed yesterday that system prefs won't launch. No spinning beachball, does absolutely nothing including no launch animation. tried resetting the SMC, followed by booting into disk utilities and doing repair permissions. Then did a reinstall of Lion, again from the disk utilities boot. Not sure if I was at 10.7.3 or 10.7.4 before all this, but reinstall got me back to 10.7.3, updated to 10.7.4, problem persists with both.¬†
I just noticed this is only with the main admin account. There is one secondary account on the computer that my kids use - if I switch to it I am able to access system prefs. ¬†
For the past month, every time a launch system preferences it takes several seconds to load. Then, when I go into desktop/screensaver it takes a long time to load. So I open activity monitor, and when system preferences is open, its using 22mb but as soon as I open desktop/screensaver, it shoots up to 735mb and goes to 45% on the user usage. I hope this makes sense. I'm not sure if this is normal or if my ram is going bad.
Before anyone says anything: Yes, I did do my research with MRGoogle before creating this thread. Most of the questions people had ever never answered (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=791337) or the posts where from 2+ years ago and not that relevant to the newer releases of iTunes.
Anyway, I decided to do a bit of song searching on iTunes today. I have a bunch of songs from the DDR series that I wanted to find the original, full versions of. So I opened up iTunes (which took about 30 seconds to load, mouse cursor pinwheeling the entire time) and opened up a playlist of said songs in a separate window. In the main window I opened up the iTunes store and started my search. To pass the time, I played the playlist in the background while switch between the two windows to check song tiles, artist names, and the like. While searching for songs, iTunes would randomly start pinwheeling for ~5 seconds, music still playing in the background. The same thing happened when I tired to change to a different song in the playlist. I tried to open TextEdit so I could copy down the songs I couldn't find in the iTunes store and the system pinwheeled yet again. It 5+ seconds to open TextEdit. Even when I'm running Firefox with multiple tabs and windows open, it opens instantly.
I know my machine is a bit old (Early 2008 MBP 2.4 C2D) but its not ancient. I'm running 4GB for crying out loud. I've had similar issues in the past that got so bad I stopped using iTunes all together for awhile. I've tried installing iTunes, uninstalling iTunes, even going so far as to remove most of the iTunes-related fumes from my Library. Nothing seems to help.
I'm at a loss to why this is happening. Originally I thought it was a corrupt library or something, but I've rebuilt my library and it was a temporary fix. Anyone here have ideas about what I can do?
I seem to have a problem with safari, it mainly hangs on launch where I usually have to wait 5 minutes for it to recover, this is the log i get:

the debugger was called entering here. I also seem to get hangs whenever i'm maxing my system, safari typing what I wrote in say google up to 5 minutes after I wrote it...
I downloaded the beta of Safari 5.2 because I was curious, and then I uninstalled it with Appzapper. I reinstalled the current version of Safari (5.1.7) without troubles, but now when I launch it, Safari crashes and it says that Safari quitted unexpectedly. Here is the entire crash log.
I have spent most of the day today scouring these pages for a solution.¬† I have followed myriad instructions written by B Noir and others. To no avail.¬† Whenever I click the Safari icon, the hourglass appears for a few seconds, but the browser won't launch.
I first installed and launch Safari 4 on my computer there was a really cool little intro graphic. I want to see it again/look at the code but I can't seem to find it! I looked inside the Safari package and couldn't locate it, so does anyone know how to find it?
Yes, I've read older posts on this problem, updated to the latest version, yet the Homepage feature of Safari (Lion 7.3) simply refuses to function.¬† Worked just fine under 10.6.x.¬† I set my Homepage to 'current page' when it is up, or I copy and paste the address (done both).¬† My New Window display is set to Homepage, and New Tab is set to blank.¬† Yet when Safari is lauched, it defaults to the last page open before shutdown of the previous session, not the Homepage.¬† Command N will open a new window with the Homepage just fine.¬† Why won't it do that when the app opens?
First of all, I know something I did is at fault, not Apple. I had tried the Developer Preview of the newest version of Safari, but found it crash-prone, so I downgraded to the latest regular release for Lion (5.1.7). Now Safari WILL NOT launch.¬†¬†
Came back from camping on the weekend, downloaded the update, and Safari crashed upon launch there on after. It launches the application, the loading bar stands still, and a couple seconds later I get this error:¬†¬†
I've had my macbook 1,1 running OS X 10.4.11 for going on 4 years now. Its been great, nothings really gone wrong. I recently got an external hard drive and that worked great.but about a week ago when i turned it on it wouldn't log in, kept rebooting in safe mode, said my password was incorrect, for about a day, tried lots of stuff, nothing seemed to help, the next day it was more or less fine (i was someplace without internet) the airport symbol was gone from the top but next time i connected it came back when i changed the internet settings.
I did a standard weekly on-line software update on OSX (10.4.11), don't remember which one, but it was a small one, java and something else. (so no OS update, just software update).Result is that i can't launch Safari, UnrarX and iTunes anymore (and who knows, maybe a few other apps that i didn't try since the update).
