I also tried deleting all cookies, and cache.This is the error message it appears on firefox:Network TimeoutThe server at NinjaVideo.net is taking too long to respond.

OS X :: Unable To Load Images On Firefox/Safari?

Feb 25, 2008

I've avoided asking this question for over a year but I just can't take it anymore.

Ever since I got my first macbook pro(Tiger) in 2006, I've had a pretty poor web-surfing experience when it comes to pages with a large quantity of images.

Whether it's in Firefox or Safari, it seems it takes forever to load jpegs, gifs, pngs, etc., much slower than in Windows.

And more often than not, it'll often just stop trying to load some of the images and leave empty frames instead. An annoying side effect of these situations is that I won't be able to load other websites in separate tabs until I wait 2 or 3 minutes at least.

It almost mimics what happens when you just plain lose your internet connection. My best example is www.fark.com.

Sometimes posters will post large quantities of images, 100+. Heck, what am I saying, sometimes it's not even that much but Firefox and Safari will still choke trying to retrieve the pictures.

I set aside the macbook for this very reason because I often open multiple tabs at once when I surf..and if one of those tabs just happen to be image-intensive, my whole surfing experience will grind to a halt until whatever process is happening times itself out.

I THOUGHT the problem would be fixed with Leopard..but it hasn't. I've searched the forums but I haven't found anything useful, although I've caught small stories here and there of people having the same issue, but nothing widespread.

The whole problem starts with image files...and sometimes it doesn't necessarily need large quantities to choke. Just a modest amount will do sometimes.

Any ideas?? Is it my router? (WRT54G) My DSL connection? (Yahoo SBC) It happens on either wireless or with cable. My windows boxes don't have this problem.

Not having images load is bad enough, but having your browser stall is just insufferable! (I'm also using a brand new Macbook Pro so this problem stems across two revisions)

Applications :: Way To Make Safari Load Pages More Efficiently Like Firefox

Jul 29, 2010

Firefox' site rendering is much more fluid than Safari's. Safari loads the BACKGROUND again and again with each click completely upsetting the eye. Firefox has the background steadily black as it is and loads the randomized image properly without any kind of irritation.Is there a way to make Safari load pages more efficiently like Firefox?Or is it just a rendering of all WebKit browsers that behaves like that?

Mac Mini :: Safari Won't Load Any Websites, Firefox Works Fine

Mar 31, 2012

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.

MacBook :: WiFi Says Connected But Safari And Firefox Don't Load Pages

Apr 25, 2012

Recently our laptops at home won't connect to wireless internet. I have a Mac and my mother has a PC I believe, either way neither will allow us to load internet pages, both, however, say we are connected. I'm assuming since both computers are doing this it has something to do with the modem or router. Is there anything we can do to fix it right away or do we have to get ahold of our internet provider for them to fix it?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Suddenly Safari Won't Load Page While Chrome And Firefox Can

May 22, 2012

I’ll try to be as specific as I can. I’m running Safari 5.1.7 

From time to time, Safari seems to encounter a problem with opening https (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure). Either the page won’t open or the page will take deveral minutes to load (like four minutes to load Twitter home page). 

When it happens, it seems to cause Safari the misbehave with any other page: Safari becomes in effect broken. Meanwhile, pages load normally in Chrome or Firefox.  

Sometimes, restarting the computer will fix the problem (for a while), but sometime it doesn’t. I’ve also tried to empty Safari’s cache and flush its DNS. It doesn’t always work. I coming here because I restarted by computer half an hour ago and pages are still loading in Safari. 

Other valuable information: 

1) The problem with https existed prior to me upgrading to 5.1.7

2) I can be using Safari for days before I encounter the problem

3) I usually work with thre or four windows open, each loaded with about ten tabs.

Show In Finder Not Working In Safari 5.1.3

Feb 5, 2012

After combo update to 10.7.3, in Safari 5.1.3 the "show in finder" magnifying glass will not open my downloads folder to show downloaded files.That is, if I have invoked "Show Downloads" from the View menu in Safari and then hover over the magnifying glass, you see a "show in finder" in gray under the downloaded file's name. In the past, clicking the magnifier then would open a Finder window and highlight the downloaded file.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can Regular Use Of Onyx & Other Utilities Show Down Mac

Feb 1, 2012

Am I right in thinking it's better to leave your Mac alone and maybe run disk utility once in a while.Will regular use of Onyx, Memory Freer, Disk Diet etc slow down the Mac and cause more problems longer than benefits they give you in the short-term.I do use these apps regularly especially Onyx. I have noticed the beach ball appearing recently and I have read tonight that programs like Onyx can slow down your machine.

Software :: Firefox Won't Run Or Load

Dec 25, 2008

I uninstalled a program called "Bounceback" (a computer backup program that links to an external drive) by dragging its icon on the dock and in my applications folder into the trash, and then emptying the trash. Since then, my Firefox program won't load. Safari works fine. I reinstalled Firefox but it still wouldn't load, nor would it load directly off the install drive.

I notice that part of the Bounceback program, Bounceback Launcher, continues to try to load when I start up my system. My system is not connected to the external drive, and I have combed my applications folder to remove any remaining Bounceback software. I have also repaired my disk permissions, with no success.

I haven't made any other changes, so I'm assuming the Firefox problem is somehow linked to the Bounceback uninstallation.

Applications :: Unable To Load Images On Firefox 3?

Mar 8, 2009

Firefox (3.0.7, latest version) for OSX has been a nightmare lately. I prefer it to Safari because of the extensions, but I'm thinking of ditching it. Some web pages seem to be fine, but most will only load about half of the images.

For example, on Facebook I'll get about half of the profile pictures to load on my friends list, and the others will just display a broken image link icon.

The same occurs with forums (people's avatars), and even with some major websites, where there will just be huge gaps in a page where the images are supposed to be.

I've checked the auto load settings and I don't have any exceptions, so every site should be allowed to load images immediately without permissions.
