It's probably the way the browser widget works that is causing problems 
on the mac.

It's essentially drawn in two different ways depending on where the 
focus is. If the
browser widget has focus then we just display the QWebView widget, which 
is a separate
window, above what we have on screen. If another MythTV widget/screen 
has the focus
then the web view is drawn into an image which is then drawn by MythUI 
like any other
image. This allows MythUI popups/screens to appear above the web page.

Changing focus to the menu would hide the QWebView window and draw the image
of the web page. Changing focus back to the web view shows the QWebView 
and hides the image.

My guess is the mac doesn't like us showing/hiding the window like that?
