Users continue to experience seemingly random crashes under the newly released Safari 5.0.
In culling a few readers’ crash reports, it appears that APE (Application Enhancer) add-ons may be to blame for at least a portion of the crashes. As such, you may need to temporarily uninstall the APE system completely. Here are the instructions for doing so, from the Unsanity website:
“Prior to version 2.0:
Click on APE Manager or Application Enhancer in System Preferences. Choose the Uninstall option under the Information tab.
Version 2.0 and newer:
Click on Application Enhancer in System Preferences. Click the “Troubleshooting…” button in the About tab. Click the “Uninstall Application Enhancer…” button and follow the instructions.
Download the Application Enhancer installer from unsanity.com/haxies/ape run it and click uninstall.
