Some users have reported that page fail to load in Safari 5.0. In these cases, the progress bar never completes, and Safari indefinitely displays the message “Contacting www.nameofsite.com” in the status bar.
This problem can be caused by the presence of third-party add-ons that are incompatible with Safari 5.0. One such add-on that has been identified as culpable is CosmoPod, a tool that allows you to download Flash videos and audio content.
To resolve the issue, download the CosmoPod package and launch the installer, then select the “Uninstall” option and follow the steps.
You may also need to uninstall SIMBL by following the same process; download the SIMBL package and run the included uninstaller.
