I have a similar issue with my Girlfriend's Macbook, have followed the stpes above, have installed a recent version, nothing seems to work?



None of the 4.0.x updates fixed my daily crashes - and they're really nasty, cause my entire system would permanently freeze up. I'm running Safari 4.0.3 on Tiger, all the latest patches. And I removed all InputManagers, reinstalled, safe boot before and after, deleted caches and preference files, even zapped P-RAM etc. I'm sorry to say that Safari 4 is the worst browser I've used since '98.After 3 months of this, I did find a way to almost banish the crashes - get rid of all visual webpage display functions: Top Sites and History's Cover Flow. Which effectively reverts Safari 4 back to ± Safari 3, I know, but 3 isn't supported security-wise anymore.



This article just solved a 10 month old problem I've been having since I upgraded from my G5 iMac with Leopard 10.5 to an Intel iMac with Leopard 10.5.

Immediately after doing this upgrade my Mail application began to act weird, so weird that I have been using Thunderbird as my mail application ever since. Mail would retrieve my mail from Mobileme and AOL but would hang up trying to retrieve my mail from my main account on AT&T U-Verse Yahoo mail. It would begin to download my mail and would quit when it got to the mail from anything newer than a week previous.

I asked for help on several forums, tried several fixes that were recommended and nothing fixed my problem. I resigned myself to the fact that I would not be able to use Apples Mail application.

How did this article help my problem? Well when I read about the SafariStand/SIMBL/Plugins causing problems with Safari, I went to check that folder because there was a time I used SafariStand and wanted to clear any associated Safari/SIMBL/Plugins out just to make sure.

So what did I find in that folder? Well no SafariStand/SIMBLE/Plugins but I did see some SIMBL/Plugins from another application, iAlert, an application I only tried out. One of the SIMBL/Plugins was for Mail and after i trashed it and several others, I rebooted and low and behold no further trouble with Mail application.

I am real happy right now.



The same thing happened to me and I didn't know what to do. So....I thought it was because I always leave my Macbook Pro in Sleep Mode on for a long time. I restarted it and nothing worked. I then turned it completely off and left it alone for about 5 minutes and TA DAAAAA Safari was running again.
