When I have Netdrive running it will sometimes cause Safari to hang on startup. Safari will open but will not load any pages for a couple of minutes. If I close Netdrive then Safari will act normally again. This seems to only happen after Netdrive has been running for a day or two.
Mac Catalina 10.15.7
Safari Version 14.0 (15610.1.28.1.9, 15610)
Netdrive loading Dropbox and Onedrive
I was able to install this version. Since then I have had my browser hang on me a couple of times. It is not just Safari. Today, when Safari hung on start I also opened Microsoft Edge and that also hung for a couple of minutes while Safari was hung up. After a minute or two both will then start to load pages.
I can’t figure out what causes this as it seems to happen randomly. The only thing I know is that if I close Netdrive while the browser is hung up, it will start working.
I wouldn’t mind but it is very random. I can’t make it happen on demand. But, it did just happen again opening the link to this thread. At the same time that Safari was hanging on my Mac I was able to open sites at the same time on my iPad and my phone, both connected to the same network as the Mac.
