Some general things to try:
- Empty browser cache and clear browser history
- Toss safari's preference file
- run a utility like Panther Cache Cleaner or Cocktail to clear out miscellaneous user and system cache files
- check file permissions with Disk Utility
- run Disk Warrior if you have it

Run Software Update, if you didn't already.

This happens to me ALL DAY LONG with ALL of my software RANDOMLY (no pattern of actions causes it). I have reloaded ALL of my software, even the system software TWICE and it STII HAPPENS ALL THE FREAKIN TIME. BUT...It is the most stable, UNIX based operating system ever...according to the write-ups [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

I use OSX on five different computers, including one which just uses base OSX as a file server, and they are all extraordinarily stable. What sort of system are you running on? My first thought is that perhaps you're running it on a machine that's not quite got the oomph to do so, although that's just a wild guess.

Bottom line, it should work and it should work well. If you're having that many problems, I'd suspect a hardware issue. Bad memory chip, failing hard drive, lots of static in the environment, *something.* Got a good surge surpressor? Preferably a UPS in case the power in your area is a bit unstable?

I'm running it on a dual 1-Ghz G4 with a Gig of RAM and 2, 80 Gig Hard Drives that are only a quarter full.

The other thing I forgot to mention before: I have Font Suitcase, and when I open a document, auto activation enables all the correct fonts. I work on the document, close it, work on something else, come back later and re-open the same previously mentioned documnet and I get an error message saying all the fonts are missing. Re-boot the machine, and all is fine.

I've worked on both MACs and PCs for over 10 years, and never have I had these issues (EVEN in the early days of Adobe Illustrator on a PC)...until I upgraded to OSX Panther in order to run the newest versions of Photoshop and Illustrator (I had OSX and OS9 on the machine...factory installed when I bought it...but needed to upgrade to Panther to run the new software because the older version of OSX would not work)

Sounds like your problem could be with Suitcase and not OSX. Have you tried contact Extensis' tech support about the problems? Any possibility that there is a conflict between Suitcase and Apple's Font Book?

Another possibility causing random crashes (especially kernel panics) is bad RAM. If things get really frustrating, I'd suggest running Apple's Hardware Diagnostics and see if it finds a bad RAM chip. Even if it doesn't you may want to pull all the non-stock RAM and see if the system behaves better.

Actually, I was having the problem before I bought Font Suitcase. I bought Suitcase because I am starting a large directory design project, and there are so many fonts from last years directory that I need just to be able to open it and retrieve the ads I knew Font book would never be able to handle it.

I will take your advice on checking the RAM, it's just weird that I had very little problems before I upgraded everything, and the day I did, I have a nightmare on my hands. Makes it hard to believe it would be a RAM issue at the very same instant...but I am desperate.

Some general things to try:
- Empty browser cache and clear browser history ( every time i get off )
- Toss safari's preference file ( not sure how to do this )
- run a utility like Panther Cache Cleaner or Cocktail to clear out miscellaneous user and system cache files ( i will add to my list of things to get )
- check file permissions with Disk Utility ( done also a few times seems OK)
- run Disk Warrior if you have it ( nope I dont )

I have also run hard wear check disk all checks out....
down loaded OX 3 update...

So we shall see...
