Intel Mac :: Why Is Internet Fine But Webpages Load Slowly Or Not At All
Jun 12, 2012
I'm going to try and keep this as simple as possible. Last night I went to use my imac and for some reason every wed page I would try and go to either wouldn't open, would time out, or would load so slowly as to be almost no use at all. I reset my modem (I use a wired, ethernet connection) and everything was fine with the internet connection (or so it seemed) because I checked to see if I was able to torrent for instance and that worked just fine. The problem seemes to be based solely around browsing the internet (using both safari and chrome).
For about a week or so now, my Safari has been loading webpages incredibly slowly. It will often display the message 'server cannot be found/reached'. I have absolutely no idea what's causing this. I know it's not my actual connection, because I can play World of Warcraft with an average latency of 60ms, and direct download large files at a speed I expect.
My computer is connected to the wireless internet, and other devices such as my brother's laptop and my cell phone are connected and working off of the internet fine. However, my computer is not loading webpages, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. It just all of a sudden stops and the blue bar won't go any further. I tried running the safari under the guest account and it worked fine.
I haven't been able to get Safari to load any page for hours now. My internet works fine because I can get email and load Firefox but Safari is my primary browser.†I have restarted Safari, my wifi and the MacBook but still will not work.
I was watching a video on Hulu, and suddently I got a error that the website could not load. Since then, I can't load most pages (yet oddly I have found one page that still works.) Network diagnostics says that everything is working fine... and I can still connect to everything just fine with with my MacBook and iPhone on the same network. I have the same problem whether I am trying to use Safari or Google Chrome..
I was tempted to put this in the 'Safari' section, but after a little more trial I thought it went deeper than that. The issue is, for about two weeks now, i'll be surfing the web and then head to one of my commonly visited websites (namely Wikipedia, Google, Huffington Post, and this website) and though I'm fully connected to the internet, the pages won't load and i get the "Server Not Found" noitce.¬†
I don't, however, have this problem with ALL webpages when this is happening to the others. Gmail, Facebook, Mediaite, etc. all have no issue and they work just fine. ¬†
Primarily I use Google Chrome as my browser. So the first thing i did was clear the cache to see if it would help, but nothing changed. So i opened both Safari and Firefox and they both suffer the same problem. After about 60 seconds the issue goes away and all things are normal again. About 10 to 15 minutes later, if I'm still surfing the web, the problem may creep back up again. I can't say for sure but I've noticed that this typically happens when I first try to go to those pages after a few hours of not using the net.¬†
When this happens, I've also tried loading these pages on my iPhone and iPad during the 60 seconds and have encountered the same problem.¬†Using a Wireless internet connection thru a cable modem.
Besides the not-so-comfortable feeling of holding the Mighty Mouse, I came across this problem where when the mouse is moved slowly, the precision is lost, but this doesn't happen when I am in bootcamp XP. Is this a common problem with the Mighty Mouse?
This started occuring very suddenly for the past week or so. I especially cant load anything related to google. Not even youtube. No matter the connection, wired or wireless, different networks, or the web broswer. How do I fix this!?
I have a MacBook running OSX 10.4, and I'm using Firefox 3.0.9. For nearly every webpage that I open, the error log gives me an error like "Expected (blank) but received (blank). Declaration dropped." This isn't a problem for some webpages, as they'll load fully, but for others, they won't load at all. This is a really frustrating problem, and it just started all of a sudden yesterday. I didn't install a new web browser or any new extensions, and I've done virus and malware scans, and I can't seem to find the problem. Could it be a problem with extensions, or with my system, or perhaps my Internet connection?
I bought a brand new laptop from HP in September and within a week of getting, adding nothing more than a few starwars games, I installed Safari 5.x (I'm not sure the exact version). I opened it up and no webpages would load. I can access settings, open new tabs, the works. I simply cannot browse to any website at all. I can type in a web address and the loading bar starts, but then hangs all day at like 10%.
All other web browsers I've used work fine. So I uninstalled it. Again today I downloaded and installed safari 5.1.2. Same thing. I'm wondering what the problem is and have tried the netsh winsock reset trick and reinstalling etc. Nothing has solved it. I downloaded 4.0.5 while typing this and that does not seem to be working either. iTunes works fine. I have no proxy settings. My firewall is turned off. Could there be some other program that conflicts with Safari and only Safari?

Okay I don't know what the deal is, but lately Safari has been having issues connecting to websites.¬† Randomly happens on basically every website out there.¬† Could be in a forum, press next to go to the next page and the balcnk page pops up unable to connect.¬† It's Safari that's doing it, everything else is fine.¬† I don't know what was pushed by Apple lately, but whatever it was, it broke Safari.¬† It's getting annoying to say the least.¬† The fact that it just randomly decides that it cannot load a page is so aggrivating.¬† You'd think it would be able to load a page from cache that it just was at, nooo, it claims it cannot connect to the site and you have to reset Safari, exit, and HOPE, that it will actually let you visit a site that you frequent often... like even Apple's own website.¬† There is something seriously wrong with it at the moment and it's getting to the point now where I will probably just stop using Safari altogether.¬† It's just that annoying.¬† How would you like to call your Mother and have the phone tell you no such number exists?¬† Funny, I've called it a thousand times, but the phone is now telling me it doesn't exist.¬† Then poof, it decides it does exist.¬† Then it doesn't.¬† Then it does.¬†

For several months now safari has not been loading web pages properly (not them all, it is a bit random, but maybe every 3rd or 4th page I open?).¬† The blue loading bar gets to about 1.5 inches from the end and stops.¬† I can then click on the bar and refresh and it loads no problems but this is highly inconvenient and I can't seem to fix it.¬† ¬†
I have reset safari, updated all software, I am on a mac book pro, I have Version 5.1.5 safari.¬† ¬†
Would this be an internet problem rather than a software problem?¬† How would I check.¬†
It's not very convenient when you're doing something important like trying to get tickets for an event and then it jams, and you know you need to refresh but if you refresh you've lost the tickets...
I just got a new macbook air with SSD, 8gb memory... it was running fine all last week but this morning I'm getting all sorts of memory errors and page load problems across all browsers.¬† I haven't installed/uninstalled anything and haven't changed any system settings recently.¬†Some pages load fine, both others load without stylesheets, others time out, and others throw memory errors:¬†
Safari will not load photos/images on web page.¬† It will load on a test user side I created, but on the main side it will not. I have empited all caches.¬† Software is up to date, OSX and safari.¬† Firefox loads all images, but I'm not running that as the defaut browser.
I have no idea what's wrong. I tried reinstalling os x with no luck. 21.5" 3.06GHz 4GB ram 500GB hd iChat keeps disconnecting, pages and youtube vids load extremely slow(about 1min to load this post page).
I just bought a new iMac yesterday at the Apple store. I connected it at home to install a few programs, and the internet worked perfectly. (I also own an older iMac plus a unibody Macbook.) I go to the office today, and the wireless and ethernet cables connect and show bars, but fail to load any pages off the internet. All of the other computers in the office are PCs and connect perfectly fine to the internet using both wifi and ethernet cables. It's just the iMac.

I have an iMac model identifier 9.1, with Mac OS X v10.5.8 and safari version 5.0.6. All programs are running normally (fast) except safari. When I try to load webpages it takes about 11 seconds to fully load. All other computers in my house are connected to the same internet and running fine. What do I do to make the loading faster?

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. ¬†
Are there any plugins or something like that where you can view web pages in Internet Explorer?
I have both Safari and Firefox. Firefox has an IE view add-on, but it doesn't work with Max OSX. I don't want to have to run Boot Camp or similar product to run windows. I just want to see what web pages look like in IE when I am coding.
Ive been using windows 7 32bit to play battlefield bad company 2 via steam for about a month now with no problems. A week or so ago, I booted into bootcamp, loaded bc2, found a server, played for a few seconds then started noticing major lag. After a couple of minutes of this, the connection would be lost with the server and very shortly after the internet light on my router would go from green to red. I boot back into OS X and the connection goes back up. It now does this every single time i boot into bootcamp and the connection is always perfect in OS X. I tried reinstalling windows 7 (64bit this time) and the problem is still there.
Safari on my 2.16ghz c2d Macbook has ground to a halt all of a sudden. Takes around 30/40 seconds to change between pages on the Forums here, for example. I thought this might just be a Safari 4 bug, but having the same (in fact slightly worse) experience with firefox. Odd thing is that my iPhone, on the same wirelss network is performing at normal (i.e. much faster) speeds. Running 10.5.7, no new apps, downloads or plug-ins, and I've reset safari & rebooted. Even repaired disk permissions. No improvement.
MBP dropped connection and now all I get is an exclamation point where it used to show full bars. This happened right during a time I was online using Chrome! I tried restarting the MBP, resetting the router (or whatever that is called), removing and addine AirPort under System Prefs but nothing works. I'm using the iPad 2 to access the Internet and write this, so I know it works. My iPhone also connects just fine. Just the MBP that suddenly dropped and cannot connect.
My boyfriend is using a 2 week old MacBook Pro on OS X Lion (10.7.3).
He came in from work and was using it on the internet with no problems, it had spent the whole day downloading a patch for WOW from Blizzard... However, suddenly, he asked Safari to open a new page and BAM! Safari cannot connect to the server. It cannot connect to any website, iTunes store cannot connect, Blizzard updater keeps complaining that it has lost the internet connection, so it's not just a Safari issue.
We've checked the network connections and everything is fine, Network Diagnostics says there is nothing wrong. We've reset Safari, rebooted the Mac, rebooted the AirPort, deleted the network connection and added it again... no joy. Also we've plugged the Mac into an ethernet cable and it is still the same, so not an AirPort issue either. I'm using a MacBook on the same network, so it's not the network.
I think it's something wrong in his network settings
