Safari 13.1

Unfortunately, I’m having severe problems with Safari 13.1 running under High Sierra 13.6. On many sites, it is giving me the “This webpage was reloaded because a problem occurred.” error. It tries to reload the webpage but fails and displays a gray error page with the message: "A problem repeatedly occurred with [webpage address]” and a Reload Webpage button. If I click the button, it tries to reload but ends up with the same error.

These are not some obscure websites but include among others: The Washington Post, The New York Times, Fidelity Investments. I have no problem accessing them using Chrome or Firefox.

Are you running any extensions? Have you checked if disabling them helps?

I checked - there are no extensions running or even loaded.

Apparently I have the same issue. I did a fresh install from scratch for the OS and yet I have the same problem.

I have similar issues, I have one website that I get the login page, but after providing my credentials I then get this response HTTP Status 401 – Unauthorized

I can login with no problem in FireFox.

I haven’t noticed any major problems with Safari 13.1, but it does appear to have a problem in Canvas with rendering jpegs. The images load correctly in Firefox, and it was working in Safari 13.0.5.

Disabling JavaScript in Safari eliminates the webpage loading issue but at a cost of lost functionality on many webpages (including this one).


I’m now finding that ad block isn’t functioning as it used to do. Two news sites that I visit, are now unreadable due to the ads that I never saw before.

Is that on HS? I’ve installed it on Mojave and I haven’t seen any issues with my blocker yet. I’m using the incredibly bare-bones Ka-Block though. What are you using?

@Simon, Is this to me regarding ads? If so, yes, I’m running HS 10.13.6; and ABP, which is turned on.

Reinstalled Safari 13.1 per this thread and so far, so good:

Hi, First time poster - I have the same problem. We have several Macs in our household, but only two of them are on Safari 13.1 - one is running Mojave and the other running High Sierra.

‘the webpage reloaded because a problem occurred’ happens with varies sites specifically eBay UK login and Guardian UK website.

Tried a new user account and various Java (un)installs, cache flushes, etc. Only commonality is both machines had a recent install of 1Password.

Well, I’m relieved that is not happening just with my computer. It seems Apple did something stupid. I never had a single problem with Safari, now it is unusable.
