Safari :: 5.1.7 Keeps Crashing Every Time Launch It?
May 14, 2012
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¬†
iMac (21.5-inch Late 2009), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
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 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
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:
Mar 29 13:53:33 Lynnerup Safari: QUERY-HANG-DETECTED - time: 3.182763, DB size: 181256192 Mar 29 13:53:35 Lynnerup Safari: INSERT-HANG-DETECTED: Tx time:3.319087, # of Inserts: 1, # of bytes written: 24392, Did shrink: NO Mar 29 13:53:54 Lynnerup Safari: INSERT-HANG-DETECTED: Tx time:12.832515, # of Inserts: 24, # of bytes written: 747312, Did shrink: NO Mar 29 13:54:19 Lynnerup login: USER_PROCESS: 214 ttys000 Mar 29 13:57:43 Lynnerup com.apple.WebKit.PluginAgent: Debugger() was called!

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.
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 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:¬†¬†
This is like my 4th thread since I've tried to update my hard drive. I got everything restored from Time Machine. BUT! Now, when I go to launch iPhoto, it just says the application quit unexpectedly. I've tried restarting and resetting. It's quite like 12 times.
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.
I asked earlier. Purchased QT Pro. Every time I launch it I have to re enter the registration¬† # which is a huge pain.Someone (Link) wanted me to open the terminal and run some diagnostic. There is NO Way i should have to go into my terminal and run programs to run an apple program I just purchased. I am using Lion 10.7.4,
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).
Safari 5.1.4 update downloaded into Lion 10.7.3 on a Mac mini earlier today. Won't launch. Creates a report saying it is 5.1.2."Reopen" just repeats a report (many sent from different accounts!)As far as I can see other apps still work including Adobe CS4 and Firefox.Cannot enter safe mode to try it there by using shift on reboot as suggested for Lion.Not sure what extensions I have for Safari but very few. Definitely Ghostery (wouldn't be without it).Have looked at "get info" and it is running (or, to be more precise, not running) in 64 bit mode. Tried 32 but that didn't work either so have restored to 64. I have run out of ideas, short of abandoning Safari and waiting for the next update.
After upgrading to Lion I see a check box at shutdown to refrain from opening web pages currently open in Safari. I did that, unchecked it, but they still open. How odd they would make this a opt out scenario - is there a way to make this permanent? I liked the old way where you could go into History and do it during a new session.
