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 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 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?
Hello. Has anyone consistently experienced web browser crashes with both Firefox and Safari whereby you are scrolling down a page using 2 fingers and the trackpad. I was blaming Flash but it is happening all the time with even static pages!
Has anyone got any ideas or fixes or indeed is anyone else experiencing this?
When browsing using Firefox (Haven't tried other browsers) and using the two finger gesture to scroll, it will stop scrolling, won't go down or up, and the only way to get it unstuck is to wiggle the page slider and then it will work again. Is this a Firefox, OSX, or hardware issue and is there a fix to it?
Late this morning on my iMac 24" with 10.6.2 it didn't matter whether I was using Safari or Foxfire the would both freeze and I get the maddening beach ball and have to force quit. Any ideas why this would suddenly start happening? I haven't done any thing special to the iMac as far as memory or anything. My laptop isn't doing it, just the iMac.
So macrumors peeps, as the title reads, whenever i open a web browser and go to either espn or youtube or anything that flash associates itself with, the windows hangs or freezes and the beachball cursor comes up forcing me to force quit. I am currently using a Macbook 10.5.8 and Firefox 3.6.3 and Safari 4.0.5. Also i have restarted my macbook, updated it completely, tried reinstalling Adobe Flash Plug-in, done the disk utility repair disk (even though idk if i did it right) and i have been surfing the web for two days to find a solution.
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.
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...
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'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 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 have tried 3 of them. Firefox, Flock and Safari. All seem to crash after 3 minutes or so but can last up to 10. It started happening when i was watching some videos on Youtube and then when i went to go and watch another it wouldnt load it up. And since then i have came across this problem. I tried phoning Apple but at �35 just to fix this seems a bit steep. does anyone have any ideas?
I am running the above OS on my clamshell iBook Currently ive got IE 5.1 as my browser, but its not displaying pages properly, and facebook refuses to use it! I also have tried iCab, but is seems horribly slow to load anything. Any suggestions for a better browser for me?
Just curious how many Browsers do you have downloaded, and list them In order of usage. I recently switched to Firefox 3.5 to be my default from Safari 4. So I'm only using two, but probably will try Opera and looking forward to Chrome when it comes out.
All three of my browsers (Opera 10.10, Firefox 3.5.6, Safari 4.0.4) crash repeatedly when accessing www.nytimes.com (most common site). I am running OSX 10.5.8 on an iMAC G4 with 768MB RAM. I ran Onyx and repaired the permissions but to no avail. Other websites have failed but the nytimes site causes instantaneous failure.
This one has me banging my head! I am not able to open certain web sites from Safari, Fire Fox or G Chrome. But I can if I do it within Parallels...Can someone help with this? I have done a search on this forum, but have come up empty.I rely need to do some work using the web site that I cannot open.
Just recently i have found that both Firefox and Safari have been "not responding" when i have tried to view some pages... namely some pages on the bbc news site and the guardian site and also [URL] It appears they are pages with some form of embedded video on them. its rather infuriating. the pages begin to open then all i get is the spinning rainbow and all other firefox or safari pages hang too.
Flash macromedia player isn't working on my browsers. I go to adobe's website and I download the player and it says successfully installed but when I go to some websites that need macromedia flash player it doesn't work.
I'm very new to the MAC scene. I have only had my iMAC for a bit over a month. I'm fairly comfortable with using it as it's much like a PC in many ways. I do have one issue though, I do not know if you can open several Browsers at the same time like you can do in the Windows environment. I know I can use the alternate search panel at the top right but I have to use the back arrow to return to the previous panel. Must be a way, I'm just not finding it and maybe a bit dull at this point..
