Any word if this fixes the issue where Safari gets stuck loading 1/3 of the way through the progress bar?

I was under the impression that Safari does auto-update through the App Store. Is it not included with "system data files and security updates"?


Not for everyone, that's for sure...

Snappy!

I vote for an instant banning of people that use any derivation of this word in a Safari thread :D

Don't get snappy (https://www.google.com/search?q=define%3Asnappy), now.

Does it work if you try it from a guest account?


Nope same issue. The page back animation starts, freezes half way and then I need to close safari. Easily the singular most annoying bug in Safari for me. :mad:

What does PRAM have to do with it? In what way are they even remotely connected? Just force quit Safari, but clean the cache. It works amazing for me.

I just use Chrome because of my Android device. But Safari just keeps getting ahead of the pack. Difficult choices.

A PRAM reset is what Apple support recommended.

None of what you suggested has worked. The only time i get maybe one or two back swipes is after a PRAM reset. Resetting or force quoting Safari only removes the freeze, it doesn't let me swipe back.
