Safari 12.0 hangs with Add Blocker Plus enabled...

Postby Don Prince » Sat Oct 20, 2018 10:39 am

I just finished a Chat Session with Apple Support...

The problem was Safari 12.0 & Mojave OS/X would hang when attempting to open
Code: Select all
http://www.foxnews.com
... No message, just hang. However, I could use Chrome to access
Code: Select all
http://www.foxnews.com
and it would open the website. Also, I could launch Parallels/Windows 10 and Edge or chrome and could also open
Code: Select all
http://www.foxnews.com
. We cleared the history, and extensions - no go. Then we disabled Add Blocker Plus and now Safari will load
Code: Select all
http://www.foxnews.com
. After clearing anything to do with "fox" in the Safari browser; Safari seems to work fine with the Add Blocker Plus disabled.

Then we enabled Add Blocker Plus in Safari and it still works. However, If
Code: Select all
http://www.foxnews.com
is launched from a Safari Bookmark its launches is much slower, then when opening it by typing the website name in the Safari window. Therefore, there is a compatibility problem with Safari, and Add Blocker Plus when opening the
Code: Select all
http://www.foxnews.com
website from a bookmark. Note* Previously I could NOT open
Code: Select all
http://www.foxnews.com
by typing the website name either... This was a frustrating problem to say the least. But the next day Safari would work again for many hours, and then start hanging again when attempting to open
Code: Select all
http://www.foxnews.com
. Go Figure!!!

Note this problem existed with an earlier version of safari when I was running Apple High Sierra OS/X.

My system is the new Apple iMac Pro...
