disappearance of storage with Safari el capitan

I have a macbook air 13 "mid-2011 running version 10.11.4 El Capitan.  It has approximately 17 GB of free space for HARD drive storage.

When I run Safari (9.1) and let the system and Safari open my HARD disk gradually drops and finally will be reduced to 0 GB!  This of course breaks Applications and I have to force quit.  The category 'Other' storage is the culprit who grows as HARD disk space becomes smaller.  If I Quit Safari drive HARD returns space to ~ 17 GB.

This happens sometimes, but not all the time?

I reindexed Spotlight and deleted the Safari Cache and history, but nothing helped.

If Time Machine is enabled and the external drive disconnected when this happens?

  • Problems with Safari since update

    My son updated to OS X El Capitan, last week and since then, I have major issues with Safari. Safari works very well for about 5 minutes and then it stops just respond or takes forever. So annoyed. If anyone knows how help I would appreciate. Is there a way to downgrade to OS X Yosemite?

    If you have a TM backup before you upgraded, you can restore from, if not backup your computer and reinstall Yosemite.

  • problems loading websites with Safari 6.2.8

    I have OSX with Safari 6.2.8 10.8.5 which worked well.  Safari suddenly stopped loading Web pages.  Should I go to Yosemite or which will cause more problems? I need Safari to work.

    You can not upgrade to Yosemite, it is no longer available.  Your only upgrade option is to El Capitan.  Running Safari 6.2.8 alone should not cause a complete inability to access any website, so something else might happen.  Please post the results of your report to EtreCheck .  It is a tool of diagnosis developed by a contributor trusted and respected here, and this will allow us to see what is installed on your hard disk in the path of the applications, drivers, plugins, extensions, etc..  No sensitive topic is included in the report.

  • Impossible to debug UIWebview with Safari 9.1

    Recently updated to El Capitan 10.11.4, it comes with Safari 9.1. Now, I'm unable to debug UIWebview on iOS Simulator (tested on 9.2 iOS and iOS 8.4. both don't work). In the setting of safari Simulator are as follows. Inspector Web is running, JavaScript is activated. Website fraud warning is DISABLED. In Safari for Mac menu develop appear, the entrance of Simulator appear when the Simulator was launched but only show JSContext. The UIWebview embedded in our application does not appear in the submenu of the Simulator. All the web pages in safari iOS does not appear as well. Is there a setting that I missed? It worked before the upgrade to 10.11.4

    Hello ahuang105,

    If you are a developer, you cannot act as a user.

    This means that you need to test the Apple software throughout each cycle of beta. You need to do this test on a complete ecosystem "burner" - iOS devices, Mac, Apple ID dedicated to the beta test. Along the way, so something that you develop breaks in all of this, you will be able to report a bug to Apple and to develop an alternative solution in case Apple releases with the bug.

    In the same time, another complete ecosystem production - Apple ID, Mac and iOS devices all dedicated development of production - needs to stay on the most recent version has no crippling bugs. For El Capitan, your guess is as good as mine what build that can be. 10.11.3 I guess.

    For now, I suggest to ask in the developer forums if this bug in particular is fixed in 10.11.5. I have seen engineers Apple recommends this build for Simulator in 10.11.4 problems.

  • Problems with Safari

    I have an iPhone of Apple 6s.  9.3.5 iOS operating system.  I looked into Safari and clicked on a Web site.  Immediately a page came saying "alert Apple, Safari crashed" and then immediately taking me to an email as I would send saying I had to call a number, that I've not found on any of the websites Apple officials.  The message also says my credit card and bank information was at risk.  I had on my laptop that I am unable to do anything with safari on my iPhone now.    I tried to call Apple's Support on the legitimate Web site but didn't know that they don't open until 07:00 in the morning.  I have tried to go through Apple's online chat, but keep just have been brought back to a message saying that I need to call or put to have someone call me.  If someone has had this problem and how it was resolved?  I shut my phone down and back several times, but nothing has changed.   For any info or suggestions would be appreciated, thanks!

    You can solve it using only not the OS X version 10.6, Apple Safari here on out!

    Over the years, there were no updating security for what be for OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard!

    This version of Safari is obsolete and has not been safe to use for many years.

    There is one more, last recommended Mozilla Firefox web browser update complete (worms) 48.0.0 that is always available, and probably will be more safe to use until the end of the year.

    https://www.Mozilla.org/en-us/Firefox/desktop/

    Mozilla is complete, at the end of the present in August, full support for Firefox on OS X 10.6 - 10, 8.

    OR

    Guaranteed ONLY (not more new web browser feature) support for an earlier version of th is permanent to Mozilla Firefox, web browser (worms. 45.0.0) through their program of Firefox ESR, (that you CAN download, install and use) which will continue to receive the support of a security update to Firefox until next April 2017 for OS X 10.6-10, 8.

    You can use these versions of the ESR. Ignore the notes support educational/business.

  • Have new IMac with OSX El Capitan 10.11.1.Firefox crashes at startup, no response to the mouse.

    You just bought a new IMAC. It came with OSX El Capitan 10.11.1. I used Time Machine to restore all my data and information. All deferred fine, and all my software works very well. EXCEPT FIREFOX - Version 42.0. He hangs up with a white screen at startup. Sometimes it starts and Yahoo my home screen appears, but does not recognize my mouse and does not take into account my mouse click on everything. Sometimes (rarely) Firefox start. Unfortunately, if I get out, the next time I'm daydreaming, the same white screen, etc.
    I tried to restore Firefox as it is stated on their support site, but still have the same problem. Any suggestions?

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the < shift >
    (Mac = Options)
    key and then from Firefox. Is always the problem?

  • Problem with Safari

    Whenever I use Safari (including YouTube) and opening pages, or even just scrolling of text or pages, Safari stops working. I can't click anywhere, I can't close the window, I can not CLICK at ALL! Do I have to do, therefore, is to right click on the safari icon, press "Quit". Then relaunch the application (losing all my windows) to make it work again. It happened more then 10 times in the last hour! While Safari is blocked, all other applications work without any problem. I type with Safari now, I'd be happy if I can get at the end of this post!

    on an iMac from early 2009 (3, 06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3)
