    ColdFusion app crashes Safari

    I have an online reg system that I built and it's crashing Safari (url is soccershots[dot]registernation[dot]com/main[dot]cfm?franID=3) and click "Register Now" to see it). The Admin backend and other pages work fine, but this page loads then hangs every time.

    I did a bit of research and found similar issues reported on some big sites like espn.com and latimes.com but there were no actionable resolutions (mostly suggestions like "delete your cookies" or "disable javascript").

    Any hypotheses or even suggestions on where to start?

    Well, without knowing what it is that "register.cfm" is doing, it's hard to know what might be causing the crash. By the way, it crashes in Chrome as well. They're both based on Webkit, so it's likely got something to do with your HTML, or Javascript rendering. Some things you could check:

    1) Your doctype is xHTML 1.1. Try using plain old 1.0:
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
    2) Try removing CSS and JS files one by one until the page loads, then step forward until you find out what's causing it to break.

    Good luck.
