OS X :: Torrent Cilent Causing HTTP Timeouts In Firefox And Safari?

Apr 28, 2010

I'm a new to the mac world, having recently got a new 15" MBP with the Core i5 Processor.I've found some very strange behaviour that I'm trying to get to the bottom of, if anyone can help?When I have a torrent client running (utorrent or transmission), I get frequent HTTP timeouts in firefox and Safari. This happens regardless of whether the torrent client is actually transferring data.When I click on a link, in firefox I can see "connecting to www.google.com" for a long time - sometimes the link loads, sometimes it just times out. This happens 80%+ of the time.

Safari :: Firefox, Chrome All Crash Whenever Attempt To Upload A File Via HTTP

Apr 2, 2012

It doesn't seem to matter what browser I'm using, but whenever I attempt to upload a file via a browser it crashes. 

It doesn't matter what site it is,  but whenever I click an "upload" link that would normally result in a Finder window popping up to allow me to browse for a file, then the browser crashes on me. 

I'm running Safari 5.1.5 (7534.55.3), Firefox 12.0, and Chrome 18.01. . . 

Below is the gobbledy-good that gets spat out after Safari dies: 

Process:         Safari [45066]
Path:            /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/MacOS/Safari
Identifier:      com.apple.Safari

Applications :: Accessing Http Sites On Safari And Firefox - Can't Establish Secure Connection?

May 23, 2009

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]

MacBook :: Hard Drive Causing Firefox Crash?

Mar 8, 2009

When I watch a flash video on my MacBook it causes Firefox (and Safari) to crash probably 70% of the time.

I noticed today that it started right when I upgraded my hard drive to a 320gb Samsung model in January. What made me notice that is because I am taking the MacBook to get its case fixed tomorrow so I put the original hard drive back in. Ever since the original hard drive has been reinserted flash videos have played with no problems.

Can a hard drive cause a problem like this?

btw I have 4gb of memory so I should have plenty of resources.

Applications :: Firefox And Growl Are Causing Bug On Snow Leopard?

Aug 29, 2009

Since I installed Snow Leopard I have an annoying bug when I have Growl and Firefox installed. When I start up Firefox, the windows isn't on focus (window is kind of in the background). On Leopard I started Firefox and immeditatly I could press cmd+L to write the homepages. With SL I need to click first into the Firefox window because it wasn't on focus after starting up. This weird behaviour only appears when I have Growl installed, if i deactivate Growl, Firefox starts on focus, but since I need Firefox AND Growl, this annoys me a lot..

Could anybody of you who also uses SL, Firefox and Growl test if the Firefox window is on focus after starting the app, ? I tried it on 3 different Macs and all of them have the same bug. :-( I already wrote to the Growl and the Firefox team, but until now both of them say it's the other apps fault...

Safari :: Any Extensions That Allow To Control HTTP Referrer Headers?

Mar 26, 2012

I'm currently testing a website that shows users different results depending on how the arrived at the page according to their referer header. Does anyone know of a Safari extension that allows you to define referrers for different URLs? Right now I'm using Firefox and RefControl to do this but I'd like to be able to do it in Safari as well for testing completeness, apparently there is a SIMBL plugin called SafariRefManage that used to do this but SIMBL no longer works under Lion.

MacBook Pro :: Flash Causing Safari To Crash?

Jul 6, 2010

It happens about once a day now with Safari. Sometimes it causes my MBP to crash. I know all the controversy about Apple and Flash, but is it this common? I do have the latest versions of Flash and Safari, but is the problem this ubiquitous or is there probably something I'm doing wrong with my 1 year old 13" MBP (4 GB RAM, 2.26 Ghz, 250GB)

Safari :: Its Causing Kernel Panics And Random Shutdowns And Overheating?

May 11, 2012

However Safari is causing all kinds of hangs restarts kernal panics overheating with my machine and yet if I use google chrome for the exact same web sites these same problems are not present.  I much prefer to be able to keep using safari and I realise that I haev not got the most up to date software since Lion is not supported on my machine but it is as up todate as snow leaopard allows. 

I also realize that a more than 5 year old machine is doing very well especially since it is rarely off. It has outlasted 2 timecapsules and countless airport express but the anomyly between 2 browsers is weird. I doubt this has a solution but maybe the odd apple tech who read this might find it a challenge to know why one browser causes heart issues but another doesn't.

OS X :: Unable To Browse Wirelessly / Timeouts While Trying To Connect To Wireless

Aug 11, 2009

When I moved in there was a USB ADSL modem so I replaced it with a Belkin 54g modem router. I followed the belkin set-up cd and have a network up and running. Initially I could connect and browse wirelessly without problems. Then I got a few "timeouts" when trying to connect, that seemed to go away but now I connect with the password, full signal shows for a couple of seconds then it seems to disconnect and I can't browse wirelessly. All through this there have been no internet problems if I go 'wired' with the ethernet cable.

Is there anything I can try? When attempting to use wirelessly I've been in the same room as the router, no more than a couple of meters away. Is it a problem of G routers instead of having N?

MacBook Pro :: Repeated WiFi Timeouts With Home Network Connection

Apr 18, 2012

All day, I am able to use the internet (via WiFi connection) at the library. But when I get home, I can't connect to my home WiFi connection. This was never an issue before. I have done all of the obvious things (resetting my router, clearing saved connections from my computer and joining a 'new' network, check and installed all updates, etc etc), but nothing seems to work. All the other devices in our house are connected to the WiFi just fine.

I run the diagnostic and I'm only green on WiFi and WiFi settings, with network settings and ISP fluctuating between yellow and red, and internet and server is always red. I have tried DHCP Lease renewel (which usually does the trick when I am getting an invalid IP address (169.xxx.x.x) until I get a valid one (192.xxx.x.x). But now sometimes I'm not even getting an IP at all!All I wanna do is unwind, check/reply to emails just surf the web to decompress after my long days.

OS X :: Can't Get To HTTP But Can Get To HTTPS

Sep 30, 2009

I have a client who has a MacBook Pro and yesterday the computer wasn't able to get to http sites. Only https. He has VMWare Fusion installed also and even the windows side in IE does the same thing.

The weird thing is he can ping [URL] and it pings (so we know it's not DNS), he can "[URL] 80" and it connects to the webserver and shows the HTML code (so we know it's not something with port 80). We checked the proxies setting in Network and there is nothing checked. Compared all the settings from another MacBook that is working and all settings are the same.

OS X :: Cannot (Specify HTTP URL) Print From Mac To Linux Server

Mar 29, 2009

I'm new to Mac OS X, but have been working with Linux for almost 9 yrs now. I have set up a Linux box with CUPS 1.3.9. I can print from the server, and from other Linux stations to that remote server. However, I can't print from a client MacBook. I set up CUPS on the client Mac via
and created a printer associated with the remote queue / printer on Linux (the URL I use on OS X is
and the driver is RAW).

I have no problems sending a test page from the CUPS web interface on Mac OS X to the Linux server -- the test page gets printed OK. However, I can't see the printer I just defined from other Mac OS X apps, and neither can I see it from the Add Printer Dialog on System Preferences (it's empty). I tried creating the printer at the Add Printer dialog, but it would neither let me specify an HTTP URL (as far as I know, I had to use the IP icon on the toolbar) nor specify "RAW". So I tried creating a "dummy" printer in the Add Printer dialog, with a basic config, and then changing it from the CUPS web GUI. This didn't work either, since when I went back to the Add Printer dialog, the printer was gone.

Software :: Cannot Connect Over HTTP (Port 8080)

Mar 17, 2008

I have an application (JBoss) running on port 8080 of my Mac OSX 10.5.2. My firewall is set completely open. Nevertheless, when I try to connect from another machine's browser or try to telnet to my Mac (telenet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 8080), the connection is refused. e.g. my IE browser running on a PC in the network simply says "The page cannot be displayed", when I try to surf at my application http://<my.mac.ip>:8080/mazda. Is it possible that port 8080 is simply not open on my Mac?

Applications :: Safari 4.0 Better Than Firefox 3.5?

Jun 8, 2009

Is the newest safari really any better than the newest firefox? It doesn't seem any faster and there are little things I miss that safari doesn't have.

Firefox has:
3-finger swipe to top/bottom
enter in google bar to igoogle page
better adblock

Fits the "look"
Supposedly faster
dragging tabs looks a lot nicer (animated)

Safari :: This (and Firefox) Keep Crashing

May 9, 2012

My Safari has been crashing for MONTHS now but recently it would do so more when opening up Youtube on another tab, so I resorted to using firefox for that. But now Safari will crash for NO reason, I'd simply check my email then open another tab and BAM it crashes and lately it wont even let me send the report to apple! And on top of that Firefox wont even open for a second before that crashes too!

Also, I downloaded the new version of Flash, but it wouldn't work on safari and from reading on here I found out the new version wasn't compatible with my mac os x version so I uninstalled and reinstalled the old version like someone said to do and it worked for firefox but it still wasn't working for safari.

Anyways, I tried the "remove flackback" thing and it said "No flashback malware found"... so I have no clue what's going on.
