Applications :: Unable To Use Safari/Firefox While Runing Flash Programs?

Oct 17, 2009

I have the New MacBook Pro 13inch with Snow Leopard.

I have the latest Safari, Firefox, and Flash.

Recently I have been noticing that while running flash programs on Safari my browser will freeze and then I have to force quit the application.

Thinking this might just be a Safari problem, I downloaded Firefox but I am experiencing the same problems. I tried running Safari using 32-bit and Rosetta but still experiencing crashing.

MacBook Air :: Browser Won't Open Pages (neither Firefox Nor Safari)

Jul 6, 2012

I began to have this same problem on my old MacBook within the last year...but I now have a brand spanking new MacBook Air (as in 1 week old) and it's worse than ever.  

Extremely often - sometimes 2 out of 3 webpages, it seems - the browzer says it can't find the server or otherwise won't open a page (takes veeeery long to do so. Then eventually gives me a "can't find" screen when I try to click around.). There's nothing wrong w the internet - it works just fine on my husband's computer. Sometimes it helps to switch browzers but mostly not.

MacBook Air (11-inch, Mid 2012), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

Safari :: Unable To Load Pages That Firefox & Chrome Do Easily?

Apr 30, 2012

I'm running Safari 5.02 on a 15" Macbook Pro running 10.6.6.  ALL TOO OFTEN I will attempt to access a page [URL] and it will not load. All I get is an eternal spinning wheel.  I have to launch Chrome or Firefox to achieve success and they load the page without any difficulty.   I've suspected flash content conflict but have installed all the latest updates, but still no success.

Macbook Pro 2.3 ghz, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

Applications :: Safari Loading Pages Slower Than Firefox?

Feb 8, 2009

Has anyone else noticed that Safari is painfully slow the last few weeks? Mostly the problems are with gmail and facebook, but all sites are slower than Firefox. With both gmail and facebook, I can login fine, but when I click on something (a mail message, a person, a picture), it times out.

I've tried resetting safari several times to no luck. Firefox works fine. I'm having the same issues on my mac mini as well as my MBP. Both have 4GB Ram.

Applications :: Safari / FireFox And Chrome Freezes On Some Pages

Jan 18, 2010

I used to have a name on this site but haven't used it in 4 or 5 years so I had to create a new one. Anyway, I started having a problem with Safari today. Every time I would go to ESPN or gmail it would freeze up, the spinning rainbow would come up and I would have to force quite the app. I thought it may just be a problem with Safari so I downloaded the latest FireFox and Chrome and to my surprise they began freezing up too doing the same thing. I've got a 13" MBP w/ the 2.53 GHz Core 2 duo and 4GB RAM. I ran a software update yesterday afternoon/evening when prompted to, but didn't check to see what it was. I do know it was one that didn't force me to do a restart.

Applications :: Way To Make Safari Load Pages More Efficiently Like Firefox

Jul 29, 2010

Firefox' site rendering is much more fluid than Safari's. Safari loads the BACKGROUND again and again with each click completely upsetting the eye. Firefox has the background steadily black as it is and loads the randomized image properly without any kind of irritation.Is there a way to make Safari load pages more efficiently like Firefox?Or is it just a rendering of all WebKit browsers that behaves like that?

Applications :: Unable To Open PDFs / Formatted With Pages?

why all the documents I've made on pages, exported to pdf and sent to windows users can't be opened at the other end? Pages is great for formating docs, but I'm about to give up on it as nobody seems to EVER be able to open it! If I export it as a .doc it loses the format. Thanks.

MacBook :: Unable To Use Internet Applications Skype/Safari/Firefox?

Aug 17, 2010

I have a macbook 2.2GHz Core 2 Due with 4GB of ram...

Skype is the app that keeps crashing the most, Safari and Firefox crash from time to time as well... and Mail.app crashes sometimes when Skype and Safari crash...

I already perform a fresh installation of the OS and no luck. I also kept on doing "repair disk permissions" with Disk Utility but also no luck...

The last time I performed a Tech Deluxe check and all test passed...

I think the problem can be either disk issues or faulty memory... in the worst of the worst motherboard .

OS X :: Safari / Firefox Beachball With Flash In SL

Aug 31, 2009

Like the title says since Snow Leopard when I go to websites with a flash video player built in it beachballs my internet browser endlessly until I force quit. It is very frustrating. I have reinstalled flash player many times. Youtube works fine, but Hulu is impossible to watch. This makes a good portion of websites I visit not even functional.

Applications :: Unable To Open Safari Window / Safari Not Working Fine

Jul 2, 2010

I put off doing the software update on Safari... I just HAD a feeling something would go wrong and I didn't have time to mess with it if it did.

So today I ran and update. And it messed up.

Now Safari will "open"... it looks like it is open and I have access to all the menus. But a Safari window will not open.

I am surprised that I haven't seen others with this problem. I have tried deleting the cache and deleting the preferences file. Neither seem to have made ANY difference.

I'm at a loss as to what to do. And I am feeling like I'm missing a body part. I need my Safari back!

I went to log my little sister on webkinz and it just stopped loading. It's worked for months in the past in both Safari & Firefox. Now all of a sudden it's just stopped loading.

My adobe flash player is updated to 10. something I'm running on Firefox 3.0 & the latest Safari. All other pages load with out any issues. It's just webkinz that doesn't work. I've also cleared my catche, cookies all of that. The only thing I haven't done is uninstall & reinstall it all.

Software :: Safari And Firefox Errors Loading Links Within Pages?

May 31, 2010

I am running MAC OSX 10.6.3 and are having the following issues

About a Week ago I noticed I was having issues on certain web pages with opening links within the page. Example: A webpage im having a lot of errors on is Gunbroker.com If I click "add to my watch list" safari just sits there and does not open the page. Same for Firefox. Other links on the page work fine. I tried this site and others on my other macbook and it works just fine. Random links within webpages seem not to work.

I have tried to reset safari, clear caches, verify permissions and fix errors on Disk Utility still no fix. I also reinstalled firefox just not safari because of my favorites.

Any Ideas? If this has already been discussed please let me know I will try to find a thread. I did do a search but could not really find much pertaining to this issue.

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 :: Open Pages Files Without Pages?

Mar 24, 2010

I need to open a few Pages files but I don't have Pages installed on this computer. I understand you can convert Pages files to .doc or .pdf within the application, but unfortunately I won't have access to the computer with the program installed for a while.

Is there some sort of (free) converter that can convert .pages files to .doc or .pdf or even .rtf?

Or even better, a document creator/viewer than can open .pages files?

Safari :: Using It With Multiple Pages Open?

May 26, 2012

I have been using Safari for a few years now, and the only problem I have with it is that I have never been able to have more than one page open at a time.  On any PC, I have been using internet explorer and can have, for instance, an internet radio station playing as welll as being able to surf other pages without losing the radio station.  On Safari, as soon as I have the radio station playing, if I then want to look at other pages, the radio station web-page has automatically switched itself off.  I am sure it is just something to do with the settings, but I don't seem able to fathom out what settings I need to change.

Applications :: Firefox Not Remember What Pages Visited On Google

Nov 24, 2010

When I use Google to search for something and click on a result, then navigate back to the search results, the link that I just clicked shows up as visited (it is a different color). However when I refresh the results or search for the same results again, that very same webpage shows up as unvisited (same color as all other links on the page). I've narrowed this down to specifically an issue with Google, or at least not browser-wide (visited links are being remembered on CNN.com). I'm using Firefox 3.0.5, history is being remembered for 30 days in preferences. I've tried logging out of Google and searching as a guest and it still doesn't work. I've verified that it works correctly in Safari.

OS X :: Open Specific Website In Safari When Firefox Is Default?

Jun 2, 2010

I have a website that I need to open with Safari as it won't display properly in Firefox 3.6.3. From the Address Bar in Safari, I dragged a link to my desktop, right-clicked and checked it to always open with Safari. The name of the link is something like "PITA.webloc"

When it opens that first time, it dose open in Safari, but subsequently, always opens in FF. I also right-clicked to "Get Info" and indicated it to always open with Safari. While "Get Info" shows that correctly, it still always opens in FF.
