Freezing on open Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I am using omniweb latest version (5.8) and OS X latest (10.5.6). Since yesterday, Omniweb has been freezing on open. Just hangs. Ball spins, progress wheels spin, nothing appears on pages. Only force quit will close it. I have tried these things:

- delete preferences file
- delete WebpageIcons.db
- start omniweb while holding shift key to get new workspace
- re-downloading and reinstalling omniweb
- restarting computer
- repairing disk permissions
- verifying disk
- other random system maintenance

Nothing has allowed me to open omniweb without it freezing and needing to be force quit.

Any idea why this is happening and how I can fix it?

Thanks.

Have you tried deleting the com.omnigroup.OmniWeb5 folder? It resides in /Users/your username/Caches.

That might do the trick.
 
That did the trick. Thanks JD3!

Actual path to folder was in Users/username/Library/Caches for anyone else trying this at home.
 
It's probably being very slow opening the history database. If this is similar to other hangs-on-launch I've seen, it will eventually un-hang, and will be usable after that. I don't work on OW, so I'm not completely familiar with this bug, though.
