Mac troubleshooting: How to handle freezes and crashes

I remember when I was excited to upgrade to four MEGAbytes of RAM (and was proud to get a great deal by spending $120 for that!)

Same problem with me. You'd think Apple could make its own browser work well. I've switched to Firefox, leaving Safari on my system but never used anymore.

I hear you. My first Mac came with 2 MB of RAM, and I felt like such a hotshot maxing it out to 4, just like you! Today, I can't believe I'm using a Mac that will hold "only" 16 GB of RAM.

On purchase, I loaded my Apple ][ with 12 KB of RAM (they came from the factory with 4 KB). 1977.
The physically huge and very expensive IBM 704 (late 1950s) had 32K of 36-bit words with no ability to expand that. (First machine I programmed.)
I've seen rather amazing changes.

I also had problems with Safari and Lion: it was extremely slow. A week ago I updated Onyx and run it using the Automation toolbar where most items were selected, except Rebuilding Spotlight Index and Mail Envelope Index, and Cleaning Automatically saved versions of the documents.
After that, I have to say that the improvement of functioning of my Safari is extraordinary even though it is not perfect.
You could have a try ..... is free.

Also, cannot download most of the time using Safari. (Have to copy url and switch.)
Am using MacBook Pro (2011) with Snow Leopard and 8 GB of ram.
Have tried calling Apple. Have paid extra money to ATT to solve Mail problem.
Would greatly appreciate your help! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
