Forum Question: Why does Safari continue to crash ?

I have Safari 5.0.2 and run Leopard 10.5.8 on my MacBook Pro.
When I bought my computer 14 months ago Safari ran flawlessly, however, since the last two updates on Safari my productivity continues to decline. On average, Safari crashes 3x a day on me. I have the latest version of flash 10,1,85,3. On occasions I also use Goggle chrome but Chrome (since the last update) has become impossible to use, with every click I have to wait 10-12 seconds. I have 208.77 GB available, plenty of space so has not to slow down my computer. Any help or suggestions will be most appreciated. Thank you for your time.

    Any consistency around which site you are at when the crashes occur? Or some other factor, like the number of windows and tabs open? Usually it would be a piece of content that is misbehaving that would cause a crash.
    Safari rarely crashes for me, but I am on Snow Leopard. Any reason you haven’t upgraded?

    Hi Gary,

    I am having the same issue but on snow leopard. It does not matter what sites I am on, which by the way are normally google, wiki, dictionary, etc. for research, it still crashes. To day, Saturday, I have experienced at least five such crashes. The last two or three updates have disabled adobe software packages as well as microsoft office for mac and now the problem with safari which is mac native. These problems have occurred within the last three weeks and no one at apple seems willing to address them. Prior to the updates, I didn’t have any sort of issues. Any suggestions as this is stopping me from upgrading to Lion which I’ve been told has a host of problems as well.

      Something is wrong. I would have an expert take a look. Advising you how to fix it this way is like emailing your car mechanic and expecting them to be able to figure out the problem — and then for you to know how to fix it even if they can. There is no substitute for first-hand access when something is not working right.
