Safari crashing
January 1, 2006 3:33 PM   Subscribe

Something is causing my Safari 2.0.2 on Mac OS X 10.4.3 to crash after I've typed three or four characters into the "post comment" textarea on any MeFi site.

It doesn't happen with the "Post a thread" textarea, as evidenced by this post...

Additionally, I got this error when I tried to make this post:



(And I'm having to make this comment in Camino.)

No problems with Safari here (looks like we're at the same version, too).

I've got the same versions and don't see this problem, for what it's worth.

Going to the address in the error window give a 404. Going to spellcheckthis.com gets a "Coming Soon" message.

Doesn't happen with my safari, and is completely unrelated to the new spellchecker I'm testing, if it's happening on any MeFi site.

Do you get a beachball or does it just die instantly?

It just disappears, then I get a "quit unexpectedly".

But since it's not happening for anyone else, I guess it's just my Mac sucking. Again. :/

are you using saft or anything odd?

Do you have any odd directories in "/Library/Internet Plug-Ins"? I have:

AdobePDFViewer.plugin
DRM Plugin.bundle
Flash Player.plugin
Java Applet Plugin Enabler
Java Applet.plugin
JavaEmbeddingPlugin.bundle
JavaPluginCocoa.bundle
MRJPlugin.plugin
NP-PPC-Dir-Shockwave
PDF Browser Plugin.plugin
QuickTime Plugin.plugin
QuickTime Plugin.webplugin
RealPlayer Plugin
RealPlayer Plugin.xpt
Windows Media Plugin
flashplayer.xpt
nsIQTScriptablePlugin.xpt

That spellcheckthis.com message is really odd. If this were Windows, I'd say you have a virus or spyware.

No, the message was from loading a page that didn't have a proper link back (in the footer, the firefox download one), which I fixed. No spyware here.

why is a download firefox link being sent through a referral for some spellcheck site? It see it has the broken notebook code in it and guessing that has something to do with it.
