Experiment crashes for Mac users

Dear all,

A small proportion of my participants have indicated that the experiment randomly refreshes in the middle of their session, causing them to have to start all over again. The experiment takes between 30-45 in total minutes so it’s really a hassle to restart if you were close to the end. It’s important to mention that all these participants are using a Mac. Is this a known issue?

All help is much appreciated

I believe that Safari on a Mac causes the most memory problems.

I’m trying to fix one myself at the moment by switching text being updated Each Repeat in a text component to setting the text via text.text in a code component.
