How to fix Safari “problem occurred” error with Safarifix tweak

November 20, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen2

One of the most annoying error that I see in the Safari browser lately is the automatic reloading page. Specifically, when a page became unresponsive or the browser is unable to connect to it. This rarely happen but when it does users are annoyed by it.

A Problem Occurred with this Webpage so it was Reloaded

Apple hasn’t released a fix to this yet, in fact, I don’t think there will be any because this is just a natural reaction of when something gone wrong. However, with Safarifix tweak you can get this message to disappear and not see the problem any longer.


Before installing this tweak, users should consider alternative solutions such as resetting their network, clear Safari cache, resetting the whole entire iPhone or iPad. If none of these solutions work, then you may proceed to install Safarifix. This tweak is hosted on a third-party repo so go on Cydia and add the following URL: skylerk99.github.io

Using the search tab, enter the name of this tweak, and then install it. After a quick respring, the tweak should be enabled automatically and the error should be gone after that. iPhone and iPad users will never have to see this annoying reloads in Safari again.

    The problem appeared with iOS8 but existed before that. iOS8 only added the notification about the “problem occurred with this webpage.” Actually the pages were previously crashing with no notification.

    The problem has become steadily worse as more websites include more Flash video and graphics. Apple iDevices do not natively run Flash and Adobe has given up on a mobile version of Flash (too buggy, too vulnerable to hackers, too much battery drain). Sites such as YouTube are dual-encoded, in Flash for desktops and HTML5 for iDevices, so they usually are OK. But if an advertiser has encoded a video or graphic in Flash only, an iDevice will often choke on it and “A problem occurred with this webpage…”

    It is going to get worse, not better and Apple is philosophically opposed to Flash so there is probably no fix coming from them. The only solution will be to go to an Android or other-operating-system mobile device. I’ve gone to an Android phone. Tablet is next.

    This isn’t necessarily the ONLY cause, however. Turning off Javascript can help, too; though this may be because doing so blocks those Flash videos. However turning off Javascript disables many websites entirely.
