I've noticed this on a few macs i've been on. when browsing with any browser (firefox safari opera ive tried them all) I keep getting the loading mouse curser every 10 or so minutes (the circle, colourful one)
This happen to anyone else or is it just me?

Although I don't get the cursor problem as such I do find that the latest release of Firefox is pretty unstable on Leopard and requires frequent restores.

I've noticed that sometimes when you open a right-click menu in Firefox on the mac, sometimes the spinning ball appears but that's the only time I've seen it in Firefox :confused:

And, Firefox 3 beta 2 has been pretty stable so far on my intel Mac - touchwood.

Sounds like a plug-in issue to me possibly flash.

Post the specs of the macs you are using, Processor, OS version etc and we'll start from there and try and figure it out.
 
as I have already posted, my safari quits on a fairly regular basis although it hasn't done it once today :rolleyes: I never get the loading icon and can't really recall seeing it at all yet although i've not really done anything challenging yet :devil:

The "beachball" often arises because of memory constraints what's your spec nad what else do you have running at the time?
