MacBook Pro :: SSL Connection Error - Site Loads In Safari But Not In Firefox
Aug 30, 2014
I have a Macbook Pro (Lion originally installed) running on Mavericks (all latest updates). SSD installed and the DVD tray is replaced by the original HDD.
The laptop wasn't running very smooth anymore so decided to give it a fresh Mavericks install (even though I know it's not really necessary for mac, everything is much faster except a weird internet problem came up).
After freshly installing Mavericks I couldn't get into my google account anymore, just wouldn't load. Tried Safari (use this normally) and Firefox and Chrome, this last was gave a SSL connection error, both Safari and FF said the website couldn't be loaded because the server didn't respond. For Gmail I use Mailplane which is just stuck on a white page. I tried repairing the keychain, repaired disk and disk permissions, cleaned browsers, turned off firewall and antivirus (Shopos) started in safe mode, checked time settings which were all good. Nothing... I even ended up creating a usb bootdisk for Mavericks, formatted the disk and reinstalled from the start just Mavericks and nothing else, started Safari, still the same problem. I figured it's not worth reinstalling all software so put back my backup.
Now I ended up somehow only being able to use Gmail normally in Firefox, Chrome still gives SSL error and Safari can load the inbox, but I can't open any messages. I get the error there is a problem with the connection. If I try in Basic HTML mode it surprisingly does work.
You would say, just use Firefox, finished...but the thing is that sometimes random websites won't load in Firefox, when I load the same site in Safari it works perfectly.
O yes, I also tried the connect to my iPhone and use the Cellular data network, then it's no problem using Gmail in Safari normally. You would say it's a router problem, but I have another Macbook Pro (just one model later running Mountain Lion) this one works perfectly with every browser. Also my iPhone does everyting logged into the WiFi network.
I have seen a few postings about Safari loading slowly since the upgrade to Yosemite but this is really starting to aggravate me now. I am having no problem whatsoever when loading the same pages in Firefox - which in fact is how I am having to write this posting.
Info: MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013), OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
in firefox, if you type two words in the URL bar, it will pickup the site. For example, my firefox will list every url i've been to in order of popularity if type mac - (it will show macrumours, apple, 9to5mac, etc)
if i type mac on safari it will list all url's beginning with the word mac.
How do i get safari to behave like firefox? You can see the benefits of firefox as getting to a url you don't quite remember is easy.
So, I just did the update last night, and I think after that my internet stopped working. It was late, so I just went to sleep. This morning, I wake up and open Firefox. Internet not working. Even though I know it won't work, I open my remote desktop connection and try to log on to my work computer using the WiFi in my apartment. Well, for some reason that worked. I am typing this message right now through a remote connection, but using the same WiFi that firefox and safari tell me that is no internet connections when I try to open it up from my computer.
To make it even weirder, I opened quicken on my computer here and tried to download transactions, and not only did it download them, but it took me to the actual bank site and I could navigate all over it. But when I tried to go to a different website, it did the exact same thing and stalled out again. How can I use this internet connection to log on remotely and use the internet remotely, but on local programs, it tells me I have no internet connection?
My application link get Failed to open error. It s mainly of RSS feed. Error: Safari cant open the page [url] The error is: unknown error (CFURLErrorDomain:-1) Please choose Safari > Report Bugs to Apple, note the error number, and describe what you did before you saw this message.the above link is working in other browsers like (IE, FF and chrome.).
I use firefox as my main browser and for some reason Gmail only loads around 50% in standard mode with firefox, half the other time I get the loading screen and it just stops loading and I have to click on the load in basic mode becaues it will not load in the standard. This happens around half the time I try to login to gmail and only happens in firefox?
Before I get yelled at, I'll get in first, yup, I'm a newbie! Also before i start, I'm a windoz person and is possibly part of the reason I can't sort this out on a mac.I am helping a friend build a wikispace and whilst we can write text to it, we cannot upload any pictures to it any more. it did work a week ago though...it comes up with <URL> picname.jpg error during upload - please try again (io error) in both safari and firefoxuploading pictures to facebook doesn't work anymore- maybe this is a clue too?We are using mac osx 10.5.8.If I use my PC and log in to the wikispace, we can upload pix no problems at all.
I have been having this problem for a while. It happens every now and then, sometimes more often too. Sometimes at random times, when I try to access https websites in Safari such as Internet banking, signing in into eBay etc, it has an error.
It says "Safari can't open the page because Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server signin.ebay.com.au". To resolve this problem I always have to turn off my Airport and then turn it back on. See screenshot - [URL]
I've also tried opening it in Firefox and it also doesn't work. In Firefox, the error is "Data Transfer Interrupted: The connection to signin.ebay.com.au has terminated unexpectedly. Some data may have been transferred." See screenshot - [URL]
whenever i opens firefox or safari an error window pops up(screen shot attached).When i try to buy products thru online webistes like amazon,ebay,apple etc ,Page type will suddenly change to an unfriendly html format/ cached type format.This happens when i surf thru check out page to the details of address/shipment details/payment details pages.eg :[URL]this wht happened when try to sign into apple store to buy a product.This page is next to the check out page.
When I open the program, I get this: [URL] My favorites are gone, the buttons are faded, and I can no longer reference my history. The passwords are still stored, but the links don't come up when I start typing them and also, I have to physically type in a website to get there, nothing loads automatically. I've tried restarting in safe mode - get the same routine.
What happens is that i attend a school, where we are 700 people using the same internet. Actually it's divided into 4 sections, so there are probably 250 in my group. This network is protected by a WPA2 password, and has additional login forms, which gives the school the ability to check all in- and outgoing transfer. However, I have lately been getting some problems connecting. What happens is that I connect, and it works for about 2 minutes. Then, it just won't load any sites and just keeps trying to load until it finally admits that it can't retrieve the server. It's my third year. and I have never experienced this before, so I thought: Well, gotta be the school's internet, but i haven't heard of any other ones having this problem. This makes me worried that my macbook's airport extreme card is broken.
I was wondering if anyone had experienced a similar problem, or maybe could give a hint towards a solution? I am running a 13 inch macbook unibody (the silver one), with the newest system and all upgrades installed. Problem is: The airport extreme card is located in the display. I don't get why, but it makes me not want to change it myself, should it be destroyed.
Love this feature (because I'm all about convenience). But the first time I logged on to a specific new site, password manager popped up asking if I wanted it to remember my log on information. Instead of hitting "remember", I accidentally hit "never remember". It's driving me nuts because its the one site I visit every day, and can't figure out how to un-do it other than re-register under a new name, which would be too much of a hassle since it's my stock brokerage site.
I have a couple of AVI clips inside of my photo albums and it's causing problems. When I try to publish it it gives me this error. I deleted all my clips and just published the photos and that worked fine. But the avi clips do not, can anyone help me? it's driving me crazy.
I got a new imac about three weeks ago, and I can't understand why safari randomly will display the wrong pages for the site i want to go. I'm on one site then after clicking on a line it will load up another page i may have visited before or at the same time in another tab. Example i'm trying to access a clothing store and its showing me an ebay error, i get random errors trying to go to youtube, i try going to wikipedia and it loads cragslist. Is it malware?
When I loaded up the same page on my pc and mac side by side that the safari version of the page had very poor pictures, i.e. you could see loads of artifacts of the jpg compression. The page I loaded was [URL] and you can see the picture of mr Mac and mr PC stood side by side. I have tried looking through Safari preferences but don't see anything anywhere that would indicate picture compression? Another point I think I should make is that the mac is a macbook and it is running over a 54g network.
So I thought maybe it realised that the speed wasn't up to scratch and therefore adjusted the picture quality itself? Needless to say I did plug in an ethernet lead and after a couple of refreshes the page loaded and the pictures were perfect. Which sort of answered my question? but 54g is a fast enough speed to have high quality images and I thought I should have the choice of selecting this myself?
Background: On several occasions, now, I've installed and reinstalled (completely cleaned off) Safari on my (1) Toshiba A505-S6017 (laptop - 8GB RAM) -- running Windows 7-64 and (2) on my Gateway desktop (7GB paging file) -- running Windows XP I've rebooted after every reinstall. From what I hear, it's a wonderful addition to my browser suite -- all my other browsers continue to work fine: Chrome, Firefox, Opera.
A. PROBLEM: Each time I try to use this reputable program (version 5.2 (7534.52.7), I encountered the following problem: Program (1) loads instantly, (2) presents the browser space, (3) agrees to open new tabs, (4) but when I try to direct it to ANY URL at all, the hour-glass appears, but the wait is fruitness. I cannot reach any site at all. I've tried to access the program, both as "administrator" and regular "user." No joy. All I ever get showing is the interesting interface (and an hour-glass on an URL-call) and nothing else.
B. ALSO: I have also noticed something I'm not sure is normal or not: ln my file-directory, I only see the program icon for Safari, but NO file directory or ancillary files -- is this normal?
Does anyone have any help to offer an intensely motivated future user? P.S. If I eventually get through this problem on my own, I'll return here and tell what I did -- but I'm starting to doubt my abilities .
Whenever I open Safari, it loads all tabs left open from the last session, not just the active one. It takes forever and I have to manually "x" each tab to get them to stop loading. I don't remember this being a problem pre-Lion.
I have a problem with safari. Safari quits unexpectly and appear this message : the application safari quit unexpectedly. the problem may have been caused by the flash player-10.4-10.5 plug-in. When i am trying to open again appear this message(SIMBL error. failed to load the safarisniffer plugin. error(1000) creating CGSWindow) and the safari's screen is white Safari's Version 5.0.6 I have the Leopard and 10.5.8 versionProcessor Name:Intel Core 2 DuoProcessor Speed:2.4 GHzMemory:4 GB
I don't get any error message, just a blank page showing nothing. I don't get no time-out message or anything. I have Mac OS 10.5.8 and Safari 5.0.2 and I have tried deleting the cookies and resetting the cache.
Besides I also noticed that while trying to load [URL] the page won't load but I can see the source code.
When I open up safari, every webpage works. But, randomly www.--------.net loads up blank. Reloading does not help either. Every other page works still. The only way I can fix it is to force quit safari and then reload the program...I have tried deleting the com.apple.safari.plist and the only extension I use is LastPass.
This is a pretty weird problem I've been having on and off for the past few months... Every now and then, when I type a URL into Safari, it loads a completely different site... For example, [URL].will load [URL].. This usually lasts for around 30 minutes or so, and then it goes back to normal. The URLs affected vary... right now, when I try to load [URL]., Safari loads an error page from Yahoo! (but the URL in the address bar is still [URL].). If I try to go directly to Gmail by typing in mail.google.com, Safari says "cannot connect to server". I attached a screenshot of what happens when I go to [URL].
I've had a lot of trouble with Safari. First off, when I try to go to a website, Safari will continuously load the website for about a minute, until the "Page cannot be displayed" or "Safari can't find the server" page comes up. Then, if I try to go to the website again, it works. Just like that. This happens up to twenty times daily. Also, if I try to view pictures on Google Images, it will not load all of them. I don't understand what the problem is. This has been happening for months now. Ever since I've upgraded to Safari 5, it's ten times worse. I can't explain why Safari does this. I have a 2.53 Ghz, 4GB RAM, and 250GB MacBook Pro (2009). I haven't even had the laptop for a year. I have Internet security on my Mac (Intego), but don't know if that could contribute to the problem.
every time i open a site and click something it will direct me to a new site. this happens everytime without fail.. (on every site) also my web cam. I have deleted a load of stuff and randon apps iv have downloaded. i have change some internet setting but still nothing happens. seem to be ever since i down loaded the new update.
