MacBook Pro :: Certain Websites In Firefox Don't Load Properly Or It Takes Ages To Load
May 21, 2012
Certain webistes like [URL], take ages to load after i login. I have cleaned my cache , deleted cookies,etc.... In the apple store everything works fine , but not at home. When using other PC's / notebooks¬† it all works fine, except my own Macbook. Other browsers on my Mc , have the same problem.
Safari takes AGES to load pages and play videos!!! It takes 40 seconds to load the page the first time Safari is open (quit and open Safari or open after Mac reboot or cold boot) and 20 seconds to reload pages afterwards. Frustrating!!!
Firefox takes about 2 seconds, Chrome takes one second and Opera is real time. Latest versions of all in Mac OS X 10.6.8.
Info:Mactel, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Booting from external FireWire disk
How long does it take to load your guys' firefox on the unibody? For some reason mine takes around EIGHT bounces. I think somethings wrong. This is after doing a clean up w/ onyx too. But even before cleanup, its been around 8 bounces... on my white imac, safari takes only 2 bounces from a fresh load up. Why, could this have to do with anything with the graphics drivers? My HD is half full and I have 2 gb of ram.
There are some sites, like url...that won't load properly in Safari, Chrome, nor Firefox. I'm not able to hover over my account to sign-out, as well as not able to paste links to get them to shorten it. The site loads fine on my iPhone and iPad, but not on my Macbook Pro.Other sites like Mashable, I'm not able to view any of the galleries.I've tried logging in as a guest, still the same issue. I even tried disabling ALL the plugins that are on the mac, still, same issue.
Info: MacBook Pro (17-inch Mid 2009), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
Firefox refuses to load swf on any website. I can view youtube just fine. This is what it looks like. The first pic is a article on gizmodo (I am sure most of you read it). The video is supposed to be where the white box is but it doesn't load. The second pic is supposed to be a music player on myspace. Before you ask, yes I did install flash correctly. I am computer savy. I don't have any problems on safari http://img.skitch.com/20090126-dkcb2...9euhkb5tgr.tif http://img.skitch.com/20090126-8umrs...9rx9795gys.tif
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. ¬†
I have a mid 2011 iMac, OS X 10.9.4 and i recently installed maverick. ¬†
For some reason,using both Safari and Firefox, it can't connect to most websites and if it does the pages don't fully load( pictures and videos won't load) but my network works fine with other device like my phone and I'm still able to download updates. Ive tried restarting in safe mode, clearing caches, Safari without extensions. ¬†
After testing this on two different networks, same problem. For instance, I'll try to go to Google.com, works fine. Then I'll go to gmail.com, wont work. Go to drudgereport.com, go back to gmail.com and it works. This is happening with all websites. Sometimes they'll work, sometimes they wont. When they aren't, if I wait a few minutes, they suddenly work again.
Some websites don't load in my browser or take ages to open examples are flickr.com , google maps, etc... Or they don't load at all. What is wrong with my mac?? I have cleaned my cache , browse history , etc.
I have a MBP, the model before the new unibody anyways the last few days the tool bar above that has the wifi battery status and so forth takes a long time to load while booting what gives ? Anyways this just started a few days ago, do not know if I had installed something to slow it down.
My MacBook Pro is running very slowly, sometimes more than a minute to open a webpage or access a link on the page.¬† Using Safari and sometimes it freezes and the force quit window doesn't appear using option-command-escape.¬† Then only holding down the power button shuts down the computer.¬†
my youtube age won't load properly, it takes forever to load the page but when it does it doesn't load to the end it's just stops at a bunch of writing and that's it? i have tried everything from clearing the cache,history and cookies to uninstalling the adobe player and installing it again. Nothing works. However funny enough if i connect to another wifi it works just fine. But i know that the router/wifi isn't the problem because my sister has an sony laptop and her youtube is just fine. Also on my phone youtube doesn't work neither it just says playback error, but then again on my sister's galaxy phone it works.
For some reason, certain websites (like IGN, Mac Rumor Forums, Gamespy) take 5 minutes or longer to load on my Mac Mini than on my other machines. I have a PC running Vista, Mac Book Pro, iPhone, and iPad and they have no issues loading these websites normally. Both my Mac Mini and Mac Book Pro are running the exact same setup and have 10.6.3. This happens with in both Safari and Firefox. It isn't my wireless router because the other machines are fine and don't have this issue. I did however reset the router a few times to see if that might be it... and no go. Still the same. I have the latest versions of the browsers too.
This problem is constant with no bearing on location, websites and about 75% of the images frequently won't load. When entering websites, maybe 10% of the time, the browser will tell me that the page is no good/can't find the server. When I come back later in the day I can view the site. Also with images, on blog websites, photosharing sites, or Facebook, some images will load but most won't.
Things I've already tried to fix the dilemna:
I have tried with both Safari and Google Crome.I have restarted my computer.I have restarted the browers.I have gone in to Sytem Prefences/Network and reestablished my internet connection.I have given Flash permission when it asks(although it usually doesn't ask on the websites I'm trying to access)
I own a MacBook Pro (bought new in June-July 2009) and are having problems with my WiFi. I mostly use FireFox on both my mac and windows computer. I use a linksys router and have AT&T DSL. A lot of times web pages take really long times to load or do't even load at all. Web pages on my windows computer load almost fine.
Maybe I expect too much, or need to learn about some networking or other tweaks to help things along, but I feel like my Mac Pro has disappointing performance.
I've got an Early 2008 Mac Pro, dual quad core Intel Xeon 2.8 GHz processors, 12 GB of memory, 1.6 GHz bus, gigabit ethernet to a 25Mbps/25Mbps fiber (Fios) connection, have run namebench to find the fastest name servers possible, and I still feel like my Mac Pro is slow. Just popped in a 500GB Momentus XT Hybrid Drive to replace the 78Mbs 320GB drive that came stock to help things along. Helped speed boot times and common app load times a lot, but after things are loaded, not much is notably faster.
OK, so I let Firefox get out of hand sometimes and I have 100+ open tabs, 4 open browsers (and sometimes 2 or 3 versions of Firefox running different profiles) -- Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari -- ssh tunnels and sessions galore, Evernote, Time Machine, and VMware running some video monitoring software (Dog Poop Cam -- gonna catch whomever is letting their dog crap in my yard).
Even shutting software hogs down and then trying to play Team Fortress 2, granted at 1920x1200 pushing to limits of the ATI Radeon HD 2600, things are still feeling slow. TF2 in Windows seems much faster and more responsive on the same hardware -- maybe that's just the fault of Steam or Apple's lack of up-to-date drivers, but frustrating nonetheless.
Load average is usually 0.5 to 1.0, sometimes reaching 2.0 (full load would be 8.0), memory usage is at 50-60%, and disk activity is reasonable. What is wrong? What can I tweak to improve things? Are my expectations simply too high?
I'm running 10.5.8 on my MBA. Lately I noticed when I start terminal, the program seems to launch right away. However the terminal window stays blank for a long time before the command prompt shows up. during this time usage of Safari becomes very slow too so feels like it's hugging on to some resource.
when I first purchased my Macbook (around 5 months ago) Safari would load in 3 bounces or less. But now when I try to use it I have to wait around as it takes 20-27 bounces before it finally starts up and begins loading a home page. My OSX version is v10.5.6 Safari is v3.2.1 So far I have RSS set to never update and have used the "reset Safari" option in the main Safari menu. But sadly I'm seeing no results in start up speed increase.
I have certain websites that just hang whenever I enter an area requiring a login.For example it happens when I log in to Facebook, or certain areas of Yahoo. It happens on both Safari 4.0.1/4.0.2 and FF 3.5. It's always the same, it just times out and then I get a message along the lines of "server reset the connection".
I also cannot send messages in Mail using the Yahoo server (smtp.yahoo.co.uk) even though Connection Doctor tells me I can connect fine. I'm convinced this is linked to the problem above. have a PowerMac G5 (Dual 2.3GHz PowerPC) and a current model MacBook Pro, both using 10.5.7. They are synced via MobileMe, and both experience the problems described above. Meanwhile my wife has a MacBook which experiences none of these issues even when visiting the websites using my login details, and working on the same wireless network/broadband provider.
I have tried clearing FF and Safari caches, I have tried deleting any cookies with Facebook or Yahoo in them, and I have tried deleting & recreating my SMTP server details, all to no avail.
I upgraded to AirPort Extreme from the previous router because my Mac would drop the wireless 802.11n connection way too often. I setup AirPort Extreme to connect through PPPoE to my optical fiber cable device. Since then the connection is fast and never drops. On the other hand it seems I cannot access some websites. These include quite a few domains, and also almost all https secured connections. For example, in a website like [URL] everything seems to go well until I need to access a secure page over https. Same on [URL]and several others. Switching back to the old modem seems to solve the issue, but then I get the old problem of the connection constantly dropping.
