There were also reports that the latest version of Apple’s Web browser doesn’t function properly on Windows Vista.

The latest version of Apple’s Safari Web browser functions poorly, or crashes altogether, on computers running Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT)’s Windows XP operating system, according to frustrated users.

“When I try to start Safari 3.1 in Windows XP, it crashes right away,” said SakJosep, in a post currently on Apple’s online support forum.

“I have this problem too, I have no idea what it is,” said another user, OllieK92.

“I’ve tried removing and installing a new Safari — still fails to open,” reported KobeKungFu.

Such complaints are echoing across a Safari support forum thread on Apple’s Web site that’s drawn more than 1,000 views in the past week — an indication that the problem could be widespread.
