Safari stalls and a solution We've previously covered reports of Safari "hanging" or "freezing" temporarily. Reader Katie Berryhill reports one possible solution for such problems:
"I've had a problem for a while with Safari periodically hanging for no reason (sometimes just when I've moved the cursor, other times when clicking on a link). Activity monitor shows that it's hung, but control is restored within 15-30 seconds. I finally got around to searching for a solution and found a message on Apple's support boards that suggested unchecking 'other forms' in Safari's AutoFill preference tab. Worked like a charm...immediately there was no more spinning beachball of doom."
Problems downloading Quicken update Reader Edward McShane reports an inability to download the latest update for Quicken 2004 for Mac:
"We've been unsuccessfully trying to download the latest Quicken 2004 for Mac R3 update since May 1st. We figured we needed this update when we discovered that we couldn't get our online banking transactions imported into Quicken. We've attempted this download from VersionTracker as well as from the Quicken website itself. We also tried doing it from three browsers and Speed Download 2. An email to Quicken produced nothing but a generic email reply."
