Multiple defects in Safari performance

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
I am using Safari 4.04 and can't list the various performance failures. I've shifted to Firefox which seems to work fine where Safari fails, e.g., sending webmail on Comcast. I first thought it was Comcast that was at fault but when I went to Firefox the Comcast webmail performed. I conclude it is Safari that is at fault.

HI,
You've had this issue for sometime I see. http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=2133848#2133848 Hopefully the suggestions I've made will help.
You didn't mention anything about Safari maintenance. If you haven't done so, try it.
For Comcast. From the Safari Menu Bar click Safari/Preferences and select the Autofill tab.
Click the Edit button next to: *User names and passwords*. Delete comcast.com. Click Done.
Relaunch Safari and see if you can access the Comcast site. I've used Safari with Comcast for 5 years without a single glitch from Safari 3 on 10.4 to Safari 4.0.4 on 10.6.2.
If that didn't help...
From the Safari Mnu Bar, click Safari / Empty Cache. When you are done with that...
From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Reset Safari. Select the top 5 buttons and click Reset.
Go here for trouble shooting 3rd party plugins or input managers which might be causing the problem.
Safari: Add-ons may cause Safari to unexpectedly quit or have performance issues
Web pages now include a small icon or 'favicon' which is visible in the address bar and next to bookmarks. These icons take up disk space and slow Safari down. It is possible to erase the icons from your computer and start fresh. *To delete Safari's icon cache using the Finder, open your user folder, navigate to ~/Library/Safari/ and move this file "webpageIcons.db to the Trash.*
If Safari still gives you problems,go to the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari/Preferences. Make note of all the preferences under each tab. Quit Safari. Now go to ~/Library/Preferences and move this file com.apple.safari.plist to the Desktop. Relaunch Safari. If it's a successful launch, then that .plist file needs to be moved to the Trash.
Also, try recycling the modem. Turn it off for about 5 mins then turn it back on. Restart your Mac and see if that helps.
