I am tired of how is working Safari on Lion. So the issue is : Safari can freeze at any moment , become unresponsive for some second then refresh page content. If i have more tabs opened , when switching through tabs , all web-pages are not visible (i mean that no content is visible on web-pages) then after some seconds page is reloaded, and everything is fine for a while. I have an extension (click-to-flash) , and these plug-ins installed : Flip4Mac Windows Media Plugin, iPhotoPhotocast, Java Applet Plug-in, QuickTime Plug-in 7.7.1, Shockwave Flash, Silverlight Plug-In (from Installed Plug-ins). I must mention that Safari even in this case is not crashing. Anyway it is not comfortable using Safari in this way. What can be the problem ???

If you turn off the extension and disable the plug-ins, does Safari still crash? – Daniel Nov 28 '11 at 1:51

Welcome to Ask Different! Answers on Ask Different need to be more than just a link. It's okay to include a link, but please summarize or excerpt it in the answer. The idea is to make the answer stand alone. Please take a look at the FAQs for more info. Thanks. – Nathan Greenstein Nov 28 '11 at 3:34
