While having the Safari Web Inspector focussed, press Command + R on your keyboard. It's faster than typing document.location.reload();. Further, it doens't matter in which tab you are (Console, Elements, Debugger, or any other tab), so that also also makes it faster than going to the Console Tab, pressing Arrow up follewed by Enter.

That will launch Safari in Safe Mode and disable any third party extensions. If Safari behaves itself after that, disable your extensions and re-enable them one at a time. Failing that, more extreme measures are in order. ...

Some things you might try: Reset NVRAM and/or PRAM If you have multiple monitors, unplug all but the primary one, ...

Got the same problem again, googled my own question. As it turns out, where exactly you right-click makes a difference. I happened to be doing it on a progress bar, and that gave me the "Save Page As" option, which results in zero-bytes downloads. However, if you right-click the timer or the controls, it gives you a whole other dropdown with some media-...
