MacDailyNews readers are reporting “weird” page rendering issues when upgrading to Safari Beta 2. Most of these users report they had been using “Safari Enhancer” with Safari Beta 1. Issues included large portions of webpages going unrendered, text resizing buttons not working, problems with Tabs, and complete lockups (crashes) of Safari. A new feature in Safari Beta 2, Reset Safari, is located in the Safari menu. From the dialog box:
“Resetting Safari erases your browsing history, empties the cache, clears the Downloads window, and removes cookies. It also removes any saved names and passwords or other AutoFill text and clears Google search entries.”
Users report that after resetting Safari via the “Reset Safari” command, all of the issues cleared up and Safari Beta 2 seems to work as expected. Please let us know below in this article’s “Reader feedback” section if you are having issues, tell us about your experiences with resetting Safari, and any other fixes / issues you’ve found.
