Safari - Top Sites goes away after an additional application went rogue
A couple of days ago an application went rogue and also dripped memory occupying all 4gb of RAM and also greater than 8gb of web page documents room. The outcome was an equipment which was pointless and also took around 20 mins to (at some point ) shut down.
After restarting Safari would certainly disappoint my "Top Sites", rather revealed me a "This web page can not be located" (or something comparable, I can not bear in mind ), would certainly not present the "Top Sites" switch on the food selection, and also the switch was not readily available in the checklist of switches to add.
After a reboot this was settled, yet I would certainly still such as to recognize what failed.
Does any person recognize what could have failed below?
I do not actually recognize the appropriate solution, yet I have a hunch.
You state that you make use of safari on Windows, yet you do not state the window's variation. Regardless, the severe load your computer system had (in regards to RAM/HDD) could have created a corruption in the Safari's config and/or cache. Your computer system, in an initiative (hopeless!) to conserve its details and also contact the web page documents, could have had troubles conserving all the details prior to the closure in fact took place.
When you returned after the reboot, safari's setups might have been damaged protecting against the TopSites switch to show up.
I do not recognize much concerning Safari's style under Windows, yet on OS X if the choices are damaged, we merely remove them and also the program restores them upon first start.
This is simply a hunch certainly.
Yet bear in mind that your computer system was battling to conserve its state when you closed it down. You had no RAM and also your pagefile was substantial.
