Make sure you have the latest executable and ado-files (check
http://www.stata.com/support/updates). Stata for the Macintosh's Internet
functionality was written as a shared library. It's very important that you
have the latest ado-files since that's how the shared library is updated.
The other thing to try is to use the Exensions Manager (or a 3rd party
equivalent) and enable only the base extensions and control panels that the
Mac shipped with to make sure it's not a conflict with a 3rd party extension
or control panel.
If it's only the Internet functionality that is affected, then it's probably
conflict with the shared library. If that's the case, the amount of memory
allocated to Stata has no effect since the part of that memory that is
allocated to the Macintosh interface is a fixed amount. Regardless, a
shortage of memory should not ever cause a crash.
