UER crashing Mac OS 10.3.9
< on 2/23/2006 7:16 PM >
Posted on Forum: UER Forum
 
I searched, and found a couple threads saying the user's system was the problem, but literally every five minutes on UER I'm crashing Firefox/Opera/Safari/IE, both at work on OS 10.3.9 on a G5, and at home on OS 10.2 on a G4, with two different ISPs. UER is the only site out of dozens I visit daily (sometimes hundreds, depending what I'm searching for) that does this. I'm just wondering if there's some glitch with UER, or what the deal is, if anything? Any suggestions on browser setup that may help me avoid this?

I used to have a vintage iMac here at work, with 10.3.2 and never had a single issue. In fact, I have been constantly amazed how well this site works across OSes and browsers. IE on Mac, Safari, IE and Firefox on PC.

No idea what you issue could be.

Try turning off the instant IM notification in your profile options.

Thanks, I know nothing about coding or why that would matter, but it seems to be working so far.

That's really odd. I've been using Firefox on my G5 in OS 10.4 for a while now, and I've never had any problems. Nor in 10.3.9 at home on my G4. And, I have the IM alert on. Strange, that.

You could also try upgrading the Flash player, since that is what is causing your problem.

Yea, me too, except on my 17" powerbook.

... and I was surprised to not see the usual, "get rid of the Mac" comment, hmm, strange.

Yeah I've also had problems with this site crashing Safari in the past. It doesn't happen as often anymore, just once in awhile. I've always assumed it was cause Safari kinda sucks.

I've got 10.3.9 on my G4 at work, and UER (and message notifications) work fine on Safari.

At home, I use Firefox under XP, and that also works fine.

Is it just randomly getting locked up ?

The problem I’ve been having from time to time (on PC and Mac) is that I’ll be able to connect to UER browse the forums just fine. The next second, the site’s gone like it’s been deleted. This happens at both work and home, so I don’t think it’s my connection. I’ve been wondering if something’s going strange of the server end.

Thanks for the tips re: my Flash player and the IM Notification. Between those two fixes, the problem seems to have disappeared.

Is it just randomly getting locked up ?


What it was doing was every 5 minutes or less was giving me the 'unexpectedly quit' notice and doing exactly that. Not sure what that had to do with the flash player, I figure it must be the IM Notification thing, since UER was the only site that was doing that, and it was on multiple browsers.

Anyway, thanks, it seems to be history now.

I'm running an older G4 blue, teehee, with v10.28. I use Safari, the only thing I HAD a problem with was Chat....it wouldn't let me scroll back the messages to see what i've missed. It has been working great lately, finally. I should be getting the updated Panther soon! ;)

I've had this issue on 10.4.5 on occasion. UER seems to be the site causing it, but I could be wrong.

Firefox will Unexp. Quit... But I don't think I've had the issue with Safari.
