Safari Just Started Freezing..?

Safari has just started hanging today. It will only happen on certain sites and the spinning beachball is not permanent.

This does not happen if I log in with a guest account.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance

Try resetting your Safari (completely). Make sure to copy any passwords or site info as your reset will clear them.

You could also have something (Malware) trying to launch. Make sure your system is running the latest Apple supplied updates and if you have an anti-virus program make sure its up to date as well and you've checked your files.

Hi Dan


I have just disabled Rapport which is a bank security thing that runs on Safari..

no more freezing.



If your doing online banking I would recommend creating a user account for that use alone. That way its secure from any malware or other stuff you might get in your general surfing.


Thanks for your suggestion. I have reinstalled the security program and Safari is now running fine again.
