Everytime I watch a YouTube video in HD or in HQ Firefox always lags. Every 30-40 seconds the video pauses for about 2 seconds. It's weird because this doesn't happen in Safari so it must not be my computer...
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.
I love the idea of a one-stop media center like iTunes, but as each new feature is added it just feels too big and slow to me now. It takes forever to open, it lags even when I just try scrolling through apps, it sends regular genius updates to Apple, it has a radio, ringtones, movies, tv shows, the list goes on. Does anyone else feel the same way?
i'm having this minor but annoying problem with Firefox. every now any then when I move my mouse over the volume button while I'm watching a Youtube video in order to get the volume bar to pop up, nothing happens. if i click repeatedly on the button and go crazy it will pop up, but it will not let me slide the volume bar up and down. i don't remember having this problem with Safari. it's sort of like the browser isn't recognizing my mouse cursor hovering over the volume area in order for it to trigger the bar to pop up, if that makes any sense.
One day I had to look for a web page that only supporst firefox or explorer, I do not like other browser but safari, so I had to install that **** firefox, once I checcked that page, (an official page for governement) I uninstalled firefox, I do not like it and I rather my safari, suddenly I cannot watch video on youtube using my safari browser, some videos I can watch and a lot of them I cannot, videos that I have watched before, I checked my other mac wich is like a twin of mine only less ram and It works perfect on youtube.
the Firefox addons on Mozilla's website work on OSX when using Firefox? I just wanted to make sure since I like using all of the apps on my firefox configuration and was thinking about buying a mac. I know a lot of 3rd party apps that aren't specifically made for Mac at times will not work
Is iPhoto graphic card intensive? On my Early 2008 MP every time I go to full screen mode (already evident in '09) the graphics card fan spins up and there is a discernible pause in transitioning. I think with Lion's big emphasis on full screen functionality, I will be annoyed to death with the pause and annoying fan's whirl.
Is the 2600xt really that outdated? I don't want to get a card for gaming purposes but something that will remedy this. During the presentation you see how fast the applications respond and they're using a iMac. I thought with 8cores I would be at least on par but it could be the graphics card as well. Such a downer.
Since I bought my Macbook Pro 13" 2.53 I replaced my HDD to 500GB 7200, but since then I can hear clicks from time to time and my macbook lags at the same time if I am watching a movie or anything. I found a solution been explained by some PPL but its like no one trust the solution yet, now I tried it on my Snow Leopard, and I can say my problem is solved.
1- Find the attachment and unzip it somewhere on your HDD (I placed mine in Applications Folder) 2- Open your Terminal (You will find it at Applications>Utilities 3- locate your folder at the terminal by CD command 4- Once your at the folder where you placed the file write this command: hdapm disk0 max It has to come back with successully message to you.
I do not know why but over time the browsers (firefox and safari) get to be with a lot of lag, which makes it quite boring on the scroll and to see the many processes iStat times are up 70% of which are usually even with 20% seeing flash sites.
I've been having this issue for quite sometime, but now have been quite curious. I have a habit of force quitting safari everytime i'm about to shut off the computer. Have had this habit ever since i got this Mac. In the past month and half, I keep getting the rainbow ball for 3-6 seconds everytime i force quit safari.
This problem started like 2 weeks ago, my mouse pointer gets stuck or lags and I have to move it fast to get it back to normal. It is a software issue because I tried with different mouses and the same happens. It always happen and as I said before I have to move it fast around the screen to get it back to normal but after some seconds the same happens. It happens with all kinds of apps and even when I start. It happens when I don't have any app opened and I have no start up apps. It even happens with low cpu apps like chrome or safari, also with word or logic and ableton. It gets really annoying because sometimes I click on the wrong spot. I have Mac mavericks and the computer is an Imac 27 2014. Maybe a formatting of mavericks will fix it?
I've recently noticed that my iTunes is lagging. Here's my situation: I swapped out the stock HDD for a 500GB 5400RPM drive. I have about 98GB free on the drive. Whenever I open iTunes (my library is 235GB), it lags considerably more than it used to. Is this because the size of the library and the speed of the drive? Is there anything I could do to alleviate this problem? I have 2GB of RAM, should I upgrade to 4GB?
I have a MacBook Pro and a bluetooth mouse and it is horrible when I have downloads going over wifi. The mouse stutters and lags horribly when there is a download going on. I'm thinking of getting a different mouse, like a Logitech with that small little "Unifying receiver" that plugs in to USB. I'm wondering if this will perform differently than a bluetooth mouse that communicates to the MacBook Pro built-in transceiver.
When I import a video from my camera to iMovie it lags bad. I have a black MacBook with a 2.4 core 2 duo and 4gb of ram. I know it is not the file on the cam. I am also running iMovie 08. The video I am trying to improt is from a GoPro hero 2 in 1080p. Is that to much for my old Mac? OS 10.7.3
I have been using the OWC mercury 200GB SSD for 4 months now and I am experiencing a lot of freezing and lags on my 2010 15" i7 MBP. I tried restoring to original MAC OS Snow Leopard but it still froze. I dont know the exact problem.
Freezing occurs mostly when I perform major task/ heavy duties on the MacBook Pro, for example, when doing some video calling on Skype, Playing starcraft 2 and some heavy games.
Anyone having the same issues? Does anyone know any problem solving solutions?
I notice that whenever I am running an app from a disk image I notice that the minimize feature on the dock lags, and the only way to fix it is to either log out and log in again or turn off and turn on again. Does anybody have a suggestion how to fix this?
I used to use Media Snap to download YouTube movies or music, but the app doesn't work anymore, and the softwaredeveloper doesn't update it anymore. So what do you use for downloading YouTube movies/music?
Basically what is the best YouTube downloader? I will primarily want to save music and not the videos, but both functionality would be good. Mainly house and dance remixes because the releases are often a long way behind some radio stations.
I know the quality is rubbish etc on the sound but I like listening to music before it is released and have it on the go, I guess by doing this it can tide me over until I can buy official releases.
Is there an application for Mac where i can copy the link of a youtube and past it in the application and it will convert the video to an mp3 that i can play on itunes? Similar to VDownloader but for Mac
