Safari :: Firefox, Chrome All Crash Whenever Attempt To Upload A File Via HTTP

Apr 2, 2012

It doesn't seem to matter what browser I'm using, but whenever I attempt to upload a file via a browser it crashes. 

It doesn't matter what site it is,  but whenever I click an "upload" link that would normally result in a Finder window popping up to allow me to browse for a file, then the browser crashes on me. 

I'm running Safari 5.1.5 (7534.55.3), Firefox 12.0, and Chrome 18.01. . . 

Below is the gobbledy-good that gets spat out after Safari dies: 

Process:         Safari [45066]
Path:            /Applications/

Safari :: And Firefox Crashes When Trying To Upload File

Jun 19, 2012

Safari and Firefox crash when I try to upload something through the browser. Before when I would upload a file, a finder window would pop up, but it immediately crashes before this window appears. I tried logging in as a different user in the OS and that didn't work. But when I rebooted in safe mode. I was able to get the finder pop up window to upload the file.

Here is the crash report:
Process: Safari [1076]
Path: /Applications/
Version: 5.0.6 (5533.22.3)
Build Info: WebBrowser-75332203~3 .....

MacBook Pro :: Safari 4 And Firefox Crash While Opening Video File?

Jun 11, 2009

It started about a week ago. I dunno if it's a problem with Flash or what. But any time I try to open a video on sites such as gizmodo, engadget, youtube, or full episodes from like [URL]. whichever browser I attempt to open it with just completely crashes. This has been getting worse and worse and now it literally happens 100% of the time.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both browsers multiple times to no avail. I am REALLY dreading reinstalling my entire OS. Is there a way I can completely eliminate flash from my computer? Then I can manually download it from Adobe directly and see if that works.

Software :: Safari And PDF Crash With Print Attempt

Feb 13, 2009

I have a mac mini G4 with Mac OSX 10.4.11. I have Safari 3.2.1 and Mac Preview version 3.0.9. Beginning last week when I attempt to print a page or article from online using Safari and Firefox the browser crashes. Likewise, when I attempt to print from a PDF file loaded in Mac Preview, the file crashes. I thought it was a printer issue until I realized that I can print Word documents without issue. I have had no problems with printing in the past, but now I do for no good reason. It is curious that printing PDFs and webpages does not work, but printing Word documents does.

OS X :: Torrent Cilent Causing HTTP Timeouts In Firefox And Safari?

Apr 28, 2010

I'm a new to the mac world, having recently got a new 15" MBP with the Core i5 Processor.I've found some very strange behaviour that I'm trying to get to the bottom of, if anyone can help?When I have a torrent client running (utorrent or transmission), I get frequent HTTP timeouts in firefox and Safari. This happens regardless of whether the torrent client is actually transferring data.When I click on a link, in firefox I can see "connecting to" for a long time - sometimes the link loads, sometimes it just times out. This happens 80%+ of the time.

Applications :: Accessing Http Sites On Safari And Firefox - Can't Establish Secure Connection?

May 23, 2009

I have been having this problem for a while. It happens every now and then, sometimes more often too. Sometimes at random times, when I try to access https websites in Safari such as Internet banking, signing in into eBay etc, it has an error.

It says "Safari can't open the page because Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server". To resolve this problem I always have to turn off my Airport and then turn it back on. See screenshot - [URL]

I've also tried opening it in Firefox and it also doesn't work. In Firefox, the error is "Data Transfer Interrupted: The connection to has terminated unexpectedly. Some data may have been transferred." See screenshot - [URL]

MacBook Air :: Safari - Chrome Or Firefox - Memory Hog?

Nov 9, 2010

I saw a thread the other day that alluded that Chrome or FF were memory hogs vs Safari. I have FF on my iMac and like it fairly well, my wife really prefers it. I have not installed it on my MBA because of the comments that I read the other day. It seemed like someone also posted Chrome was almost or as bad. There have been some spirited threads on how to keep our Airs running at top efficiency, going both easy on the RAM and on the battery life. The general consensus amongst members is Flash with a Flash filter plugin such as ClickToFlash battery life. If a browser is a memory hog will it also hasten the battery's discharge or just sap your RAM? Or would the user never really notice the difference unless they were tunnel visioned on their system monitor whilst surfing the web?

Applications :: Safari Versus Chrome - Firefox

Jul 3, 2010

I cannot seems to find a good browser, yes I know Safari 5 is decent but as my wife just noted me today.

It seems that it cannot "multi-task' with tabs, what I mean she opened 2 flash games from Facebook in two tabs, so while 1 tab is playing the game the second one stands still on loading screen. I have decided to test if that was the Facebook problem and loaded 2 games in separate tabs from other game website, to my surprise same result.

Im also experiencing some issues with youtube, while Im loading video sometimes it stops loading video half way through or may be 40%.

Chrome, well its ok but sometimes it slows on flash as well.

Now the real issue I'm having is from Firefox; I have the latest version installed I think 3.6. After a few minutes it starts to get slow, later on it stops responding to the point that my dock and apple bar just freezes. The only solution is to activate spaces, move to empty space and force quit it.

Applications :: Safari, Firefox And Chrome All Hang - How To Repair

Dec 15, 2010

Well, I didn't change or install anything but since this afternoon Safari began to pause about 3/4 of the way loading a page. It would hang for about 3 seconds, give me the color wheel then load the rest of the page.

So, I installed Firefox and Chrome and they both do the same thing.

Applications :: Safari / FireFox And Chrome Freezes On Some Pages

Jan 18, 2010

I used to have a name on this site but haven't used it in 4 or 5 years so I had to create a new one. Anyway, I started having a problem with Safari today. Every time I would go to ESPN or gmail it would freeze up, the spinning rainbow would come up and I would have to force quite the app. I thought it may just be a problem with Safari so I downloaded the latest FireFox and Chrome and to my surprise they began freezing up too doing the same thing. I've got a 13" MBP w/ the 2.53 GHz Core 2 duo and 4GB RAM. I ran a software update yesterday afternoon/evening when prompted to, but didn't check to see what it was. I do know it was one that didn't force me to do a restart.

MacBook Pro :: Safari Versus Chrome / Firefox On 2008

Jun 10, 2010

I currently own a late 2008 15 inch macbook pro. It's my first Mac, and I'm very satisfied with it.

I recently downloaded Safari 5 and have been less than impressed. I find the performance extremely sporadic: sometimes very fast, sometimes painfully slow. I have also lost Youtube and Justintv functionality, and since I take online courses the video sites are imperative for me.

I've re-loaded Firefox and also Chrome, and over the last three days seem to be leaning towards Chrome for its balance of speed and overall functionality.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Silverlight Works On Safari And Chrome, But Not On Firefox

May 31, 2012

I am having trouble with  Silverlight, which is necessary to stream movies on Netflix. Every time I click on a movie to watch I get a prompt to install Silverlight, even though I have already done so. This occurs on Firefox, my default brower, but not on Safari or Chrome.  

I am running a Macbook Pro with OS X 10.7.3. It seems there is some incompatibility problem that affects Firefox but not other browsers. I could switch to Safar or Chrome as my default browser or stay with Firefox and use another browser for Netflix, but neither solution is perfect, and I would love to get Netflix to work on Firefox.

I'm running Safari 5.02 on a 15" Macbook Pro running 10.6.6.  ALL TOO OFTEN I will attempt to access a page [URL] and it will not load.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Suddenly Safari Won't Load Page While Chrome And Firefox Can

May 22, 2012

I’ll try to be as specific as I can. I’m running Safari 5.1.7 

From time to time, Safari seems to encounter a problem with opening https (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure). Either the page won’t open or the page will take deveral minutes to load (like four minutes to load Twitter home page). 

When it happens, it seems to cause Safari the misbehave with any other page: Safari becomes in effect broken. Meanwhile, pages load normally in Chrome or Firefox.  

Sometimes, restarting the computer will fix the problem (for a while), but sometime it doesn’t. I’ve also tried to empty Safari’s cache and flush its DNS. It doesn’t always work. I coming here because I restarted by computer half an hour ago and pages are still loading in Safari. 

Other valuable information: 

1) The problem with https existed prior to me upgrading to 5.1.7

2) I can be using Safari for days before I encounter the problem

3) I usually work with thre or four windows open, each loaded with about ten tabs.

Why Not Remove Safari From OSX / Firefox / Chrome Have Surpassed It Completely In Functionality / Usability

Mar 23, 2012

To be honest the whole safari thing is always going to be a running joke to everyone.Safari cant play embedded videos or loads of the content on youtube because of Apple insistence to lock it to only use thier version of flash, why not remove it all together and have a browser choice like Windows has this would at least give the users a chance to get a browser that is fully functional?
