MacBook :: Safari Won't Even Use WiFi Correctly, Firefox Works 90% Of The Time?

Feb 11, 2009

1. Incredibly flaky wireless. Safari won't even use WiFi correctly, Firefox works 90% of the time, but sometimes it just kicks my WiFi off. Same with Windows XP in VMWare.3. Above all, I'll be in the middle of doing a project, AND IT WILL DEMAND I TURN IT OFF? Why!? Why would I want to turn it off? It makes me for god's sakes, and I lose whatever I was doing. See the picture attached below, it's happened half a dozen time in five days, and no way to stop it.

OS X :: 3 Finger Swipe In Firefox Works But Not In Safari

Aug 23, 2009

I use Firefox, and I do a 3 finger swipe upwards, it will go to the top of the page. And when I swipe downwards, it goes to the end of the page. I find this really useful. But when I switch to Safari, the same motion does nothing at all

MacBook :: WiFi Says Connected But Safari And Firefox Don't Load Pages

Apr 25, 2012

Recently our laptops at home won't connect to wireless internet. I have a Mac and my mother has a PC I believe, either way neither will allow us to load internet pages, both, however, say we are connected. I'm assuming since both computers are doing this it has something to do with the modem or router. Is there anything we can do to fix it right away or do we have to get ahold of our internet provider for them to fix it?

Applications :: Safari Not Loading Any Web Page But Firefox Works

Aug 26, 2010

I noticed that Safari wouldn't load a web page. So I went to my back up browser, Firefox. Well it loaded just fine. So at this point, I figured that it may be my schools crappy WiFi/lame firewalls or something of the sort. Well now I've been on my home WiFi for a few hours and it still won't connect. I've restarted my computer a few times and even reset Safari. Safari Version 5.0.1 (6533.17.8).

OS X :: Safari Can't Find Server But Firefox Works Fine

Nov 1, 2007

I'm having a strange issue after upgrading to Leopard. When I try to open certain pages in Safari it instantly gives me the "Safari can?t find the server" message. When I try to open the same page in Firefox at the same time it opens normally. For many pages (like this one) Safari is working fine. My connection seems good and this is happening on reliable sites (currently Safari won't open

Applications :: Firefox/Safari Not Works With GMail And YouTube?

May 7, 2009

During the past few hours I've tried to load gmail and youtube in FF and Safari multiple times, but every time I do I get the spinning wheel of death. The pages will load and whenever I try to click on something I will get the wheel.

Yesterday I was on a myspace page and I received a message saying something about how the Adobe page scripts for that page were being unresponsive or something? I'm not sure exactly what it said...

Anyways, is there any way I can get this resolved? It sounds like it has to do something with a plug-in or an update.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Silverlight Works On Safari And Chrome, But Not On Firefox

May 31, 2012

I am having trouble with  Silverlight, which is necessary to stream movies on Netflix. Every time I click on a movie to watch I get a prompt to install Silverlight, even though I have already done so. This occurs on Firefox, my default brower, but not on Safari or Chrome.  

I am running a Macbook Pro with OS X 10.7.3. It seems there is some incompatibility problem that affects Firefox but not other browsers. I could switch to Safar or Chrome as my default browser or stay with Firefox and use another browser for Netflix, but neither solution is perfect, and I would love to get Netflix to work on Firefox.

Mac Mini :: Safari Won't Load Any Websites, Firefox Works Fine

Mar 31, 2012

After restarting, Safari suddenly doesn't load any webpages.  It shows all the top sites in the favorites area and actually updates some to the most recent versions, but when you try to get to the site it shows the loading bar to about an 1/8th of the way and then just pin wheels.  Firefox works fine.  I have used the reset to no avail.  Have the current version and have been running it for a while with no problems.

IMac :: Power Cord Works Correctly?

Mar 16, 2010

I'm planning on giving my brother my early 2008 aluminium iMac but he lives in Canada; I live in the UK. I read somewhere that iMacs have a voltage recognition ability... is that true? If he buys the equivalent North American power cord, will it work correctly?

OS X :: Firefox Not Displaying Pages Correctly

Oct 23, 2007

I'm new to Mac (as of Oct. 3rd), but I'm a long-time user of Firefox. I notice that when I have FF running for long periods of time, and I go to, for example, to check out my friends list on the computer, often times the page shows up as plain text, no graphics or images or anything. Then I come here to create a post, and all of the buttons and formatting tools appear as plain text as well, instead of the images/buttons. I don't regularly visit a wide variety of web-sites, but the one I mentioned earlier seems to consistently trigger it. Usually the only way I can get pages to display correctly again (no matter where I try to go) is to completely quit Firefox and reopen it. I included a screen shot so you can see what it's coming up as, vs what it's supposed to look like. I've never had this problem with any websites as long as I've been using Firefox until just recently. [URL]

OS X :: Slow Internet Browsing / Safari Or Firefox Taking Long Time

Mar 4, 2009

I've had my MBP for about a year and recently I noticed that when I open Safari or Firefox it takes FOREVER to load a page.Even a small page like Google! I tried a reset for both browsers but that didn't help.I did some maintenance but no help there either.

This is my first Mac so I wanted to ask if I'm missing something.. should I be doing something maintenance-like that I'm not?

MacBook Air :: WiFi Works Only For Few Minutes For This Device

Jun 23, 2014

I have created a wi-fi network with a time capsule which works fine for every device: 2 iPhones, one iPad, apple tv a 13’’ macbook pro.Whenever I use my macbook air the wi-fi works for a few minutes then the connection slows down and stops, and at the same time all of the other devices on the network hang up, the wi-fi connection appear to be on but nothing loads. As soon as i turn the wi-fi off on the air, the connection resume normally on the other devices... then the cycle repeats if i turn it back on...this is really frustrating!

Since the other devices don’t have any problems unless the macbook air is online, I’m assuming there’s something wrong with it but I don’t quite know what... interestingly if I use it on other wi-fi networks (like at work) it seems to be working just fine...I have OS X 10.9.3 installed. this is an 11'' macbook air, mid 2013 model, 1.7 GHz Intel Core i7 with 4 GB of memory.

MacBook Pro :: WiFi Connects But Works Only Briefly On Networks Away From Home

Apr 28, 2012

I have no trouble using WiFi at home. But when I connect my new MacBook Pro to WiFi networks at cafes, airports, and hotels, I can connect and a page or two will load without a problem. But a minute or two later, the WiFi signal appears to be fine but no pages will load and e-mail messages can't be sent or received.  

If I turn WiFi off and reconnect to the same network, I can load another page or two and then it quits working. I don't have this problem when connecting to the same networks on my iPhone, so I'm assuming there's a problem with my computer or its settings.

IMac (Intel) :: Computer Lose The Ability To Use A Correctly Connected WiFi

Jun 28, 2014

I have a mac desktop. Just recently, possible since an upgrade to mavericks, it loses its ability to use wifi its clearly recognises as connected. The temporary solution I have involves opening the network and running wifi diagnostics. It always comes back and says it is all fine but it fixes it. ie the act of running diagnostics resolves the problem.  

Happens every 10 mins or so when using and is now becoming a sore point. 

I am not even slightly technical. I turn on, I type, I turn off.

OS X :: Why Is Firefox The Only Browser That Works

Aug 29, 2010

I recently arrived at college and when you join the wifi network (and through ethernet) you have to register your computer. I did this at orientation and everything worked fine. Once I got here I had to reregister (maybe they reset something in the system, so I don't think its a big deal but youre supposed to only have to register every 12 months).

I believe what happened is I opened Safari and I registered over Wifi and ethernet. And then nothing would load while I was on wifi, but Skype would work (but I've noticed that the Pandora One app won't load, but I'm not going to worry about that, at least for now. I can use the website).

So after like an hour chatting with tech support, resetting Safari, restarting, trying Chrome, I go in to the library where tech support is.

OS X :: Firefox 3.0 No Longer Works?

Feb 20, 2009

For a long time I was running Firefox 3.0 just fine, until a few months ago when every time I tried to open it, it froze up and I had to shut it down. I removed it and installed Firefox 2.0 which was fine for a while but I would really like to start using 3.0 again.

Does anyone know what the problem could be? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, deleting my Firefox profile, etc.

I'm on a PowerBook G4.

Hardware :: Airport Express Works With WiFi Computer Only?

Dec 21, 2008

I want to buy an Airport Express to stream by iMac Itune library but not sure if it works as I want -

I have a normal Asus wireless route in my living room. My iMac is in my bed room and can only be LANed via wired connection. My home Hi Fi audio system is in my living room but there cannot be LAN cable between my router and Hi Fi audio system.

If the Airport is connected to my Hi Fi audio system, can I still also stream my iMac Itune libarary? Or Airport must stream a Wi-Fi connected computer?

Hardware :: Finding A WiFi Router That Works With Cellular Aircards

Apr 29, 2010

I have a Sierra Wireless 881U USB Aircard that I use with AT&T's 5GB/month data plan. It works well now since I just use it on a couple laptops I have but now that I'm buying an iPad I want to avoid an extra $30/month for data and just share the data plan with it. Since the iPad doesn't have USB that means I'll need a solution to use Wi-Fi on it.

I came across the Cradlepoint PHS-300. It's nice since it has an internal battery or can plug in and is fairly small and I simply plug in my aircard to make a local wi-fi access point that I can use on the go with either my laptop or iPad.

My question: Are there other options on the market? Cradlepoint makes some others but they don't have a battery. I want one with the most battery life for the smallest sizes and have been unable to find any from Linksys but are there other items like this on the market?

Also, another question. I'm happy with AT&T's data plan but my contract is up shortly. Does anyone have opinions of Verizon or Spring or even T-Mobile? I don't know much about T-Mobile and it seems like Verizon's plan is similar and even Sprint's current 3G plan is similar. it seems once 4G is available in an area though for the same price of $59.95/month you get unlimited data. that sounds too good to be true and is it really true and is the service and speed good?

Apr 12, 2009

So I recently downloaded the beta for safari and a couple weeks later out of no where it became compeltly unresponsive, I just get a spinning beach ball when I try to open it. I have attempted to uninstall it and go back to safari 3, unistall and reinstall the beta and I either way I get nothing. I even used time machine to go back and it still wont work. Luckily I had firefox installed so I am using this now. Either way I want Safari back though. I created a test user on my macbook just to see if safari would work and sure enough it works fine on this new test log in. So what does this mean and how can I fix it to work on my normal account?

Hardware :: Time Capsule Not Backing Up Correctly?

Mar 19, 2009

My Dad got a new MBP and he probably has over 12 GB of just straight excel docs etc. He has 164 GB available on his HD, when he backs up to Time Capsule it says he has 10 GB to backup, OK so we let it sit over night and let it do its thing, everything he goes back to back up he has 10 GB to backup even when the last backup said it worked correctly. I know he hasn't got that many files since his last back up.
