    Yes I have a myspace account.

    I was wondering why when I run Safari and go there, all of the profiles that have embeded movie files, pretty sure it's just the Winders format that is doing, it makes Safari freeze up on me and I have to force quit it.

    yea, same. It only happens if you have multiple myspace pages open for me. You just have to be careful. Also, if you scroll before it fully loads, it may lock up.

    My safari works flawlessly with the new edit. However, I dont see the top banner which I see on FF.

    my safari works fine on this site.

    for myspace, it isn't the browser, its something on the site. Firefox and IE have issues with some people's pages that have video. I actually get an error box telling me I can't view the video. I think its great, because these videos are fucking stupid to have on there anyways.

    Same here. My Safari and Firefox both hate riced out MS profiles. What I think it is a few things. A) Shockwave based components lock it up and also, any WMP 10.0 encoded files won't play because the highest version out for the Mac is WMP 9.0. :down:

    Same here, Safari and Firefox, even IE sometimes hates Myspace. Just turn off plug-ins and you should have no problems.

    Yea, it's annoying. The first thing I usually do is look for the stop button.

    I've seen some pages with multiple videos playing simultaneously :hsugh:
