    Title says it basically. OS version is 10.12.4. Something on the GateFans forums home page is causing it to instantly crash.

    Are you on 10.12.4?

    Weirdly enough the crashing has ceased. Did something change here?

    No, but something changed with Sierra :) They patched it. Do you also have the Night Shift update?

    I do now.

    It looks like a driver update got pushed to the GPU today. I'll bet that was what beat the kernel panic :)

    This problem is on your own copy of Safari, not something in the site code. I cannot replicate your error on my Safari, and the log you just posted does not refer to any page faults. Just your Safari installation.

    Cool. The weird thing is it only happens on GateFans. Go figure. Are we on the same version of Safari?

    And...let's get weirder.

    I just installed the AdBlock Plus extension on Safari and now GF works properly. And ABP shows no ads blocked :D

    I am not sure, but I think so. It came with the update. I never use it so not sure. :)

    I have changed the title of this thread because it was impacting negatively on unregistered site traffic. Please be careful how you word thread titles, as they are heuristically categorized and can flag a site as unsafe when it isn't. Thanks.

    Okay. Perhaps the entire thing should have been reported by PM then?
