I'd like to post an update: I have purchased two Corsair 4GB ram sticks. They work perfectly and passed the memory test. It is indeed a memory compatibility issue - My 27" Imac doesn't take 8GB ram sticks! Thank you all for your help!

The worst, but working solution will be to set screen locking to 30 seconds, so that it will go to sleep faster. Looks like apple does it on purpose.

Try and Boot in Safe Mode by holding Cmd-Shift right after it boots.

My assumption solution: Safari is continuously attempting to reload the last session. To resolve this issue go to ~/Library/Saved Application State/ Remove the com.safari... folder and place in the Trash. A second issue could be adware, which created the issue in the first place. Open Safari, which should operate properly after removing the above folder, ...

The above did help temporarily however when tried switching Safari Suggestions etc back on same problem continued. Try Settings> Safari> Advanced> Website Data> Clear all. Once this was done I went back and turned everything else back on and Safari stopped crashing and I was able to use it as normal again.

Interesting how this seems to be affecting everybody at the same time. Just happened to me, too. Was fine 12 hours ago. Turning off spotlight suggestions fixed it.

I was having the same issue. I turned off the "Search Engine Suggestion" and the "Safari Suggestions" in Settings under Safari. Try and see if that works.. It worked for me!!

It seems to be a problem these days. Did you also disable "spotlight suggestions" in Safari settings? EDIT: Maybe a reset will do?

Narrowed it down to Safari Suggestions. I shut suggestions off and it works fine now.

Turn off Search Engine Suggestions and Preload Top Hit. I can confirm normal Safari is working fine now. My iPad Retina was just doing the same thing. It worked fine an hour ago and then Safari started crashing and closing. It's worth mentioning that Private Browsing was unaffected and worked fine. I tried deleting history but it made no difference.

I started having this issue tonight and immediately cleared my website data, restarted iPhone, and killed safari from the home screen with no luck. I finally turned off the search engine suggestions, Safari suggestions, and preload top hit and that seemed to fix it. I am, by no means, a tech guru so I have absolutely no explanation for why this happened ...

On iOS 8.4.1 on an iPad gen 3, turning off "Spotlight Suggestions" in Safari settings resolved the issue. I also cleared all history but that had no impact until I disabled Spotlight.

I think it is more likely about software issue. Did you upgrade your iPhone 5s to latest version? Also you can backup your files on iCloud or iTunes, then remove all data and restore. Maybe the situation will be disappeared.

Probably best to read up on the general case and then report back with an edit once you have several crashes and can compare one to the other: General advice on troubleshooting kernel panics is here: What is a Kernel Panic and what does it mean?

It's quite hard to tell from that what's causing the crash, but seeing as SoundFlower hasn't been updated since 2014, and certainly hasn't been updated for El Capitan, my money's on SoundFlower being the culprit here. Try uninstalling it, or just moving its kext out of "/Library/Extensions/" and restarting. See if that fixes it.

This worked for a colleague: you can type alt/optcmdW when opening Preview, then quit an re-open.

I specifically noticed this line Multiple object mappings were found for AB key AAMkADM2MDFmNGNmLWM3NmMtNGYxOS1iMDg4LWY0YjI1MGYzNjYxYQBGAAAAAABDPkLykrMnSJ1IqQdY8YscBwBYGhW8CcVeTK3joidjOJa9AAAAAAEiAABYGhW8CcVeTK3joidjOJa9AAA10vffAAA= of type itemId' which I suspected indicated that I had a duplicate somewhere in the contact database This is how I solved it, ...

I use this model of MBP and, like you, sometimes experience kernel panics when a program tries to use the discrete NVIDIA GPU, rather than the integrated Intel graphics chipset. There is a program called gfxCardStatus (https://gfx.io) which gives the user some control over whether the integrated or discrete graphics are being used. It does not work perfectly ...

I was able to solve it: sudo /usr/libexec/repair_packages --repair --standard-pkgs / did repair the access rights of the folder /private/tmp. I suspect that Adobe Creative Cloud has altered the rights. There have been some log lines in the console about quicklookd being not able to scan /, so that is another symptom of that problem.

When I went to Settings -> Mail contacts and turned off contacts for the gmail account, the Contacts app loaded without crashing. But I suspect it is no longer linked to Gmail.

Thank you for providing the updated information - however, as I suspected, that is one of the few iMacs from that period that cannot take more than 16GB RAM. I'm struggling to find data on whether it can specifically use 2x 8GB RAM sticks, though your own experiments would seem to say it cannot & that its maximum configuration would be 4x 4GB sticks. ...

As it turns out, the adapter was faulty, as it appears. I had not tested it because shortly after the problem occurred, the battery refused to charge so I had to have it serviced.

Could be a hardware related issue (either the MBP or external display) Similar issue happened to me and it turned out to be an issue with the LVDS cable. Also used to work at the Genius Bar, and would see this a lot with certain models of MBP. Try running a hardware test https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201257 , or if you can take it in to the Genius Bar. ...
