OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Safari Running Slow And Sticking During Loading Process?

Noticed that Safari is running slow and sticking during the loading process. Also iTunes is freezing mid-song. Is there a bug or have I finally gotten a virus?

OS X :: Firefox And Safari Page Loading Slow On Snow Leopard

Sep 9, 2009

Since upgrading to Snow Leopard (SL). I have noticed a painfully slow access to sites when using Firefox and Safari. Pages used to load almost instantaneous with Leopard. Now when using either Firefox or Safari on SL, It's taking an average of 8-10 seconds to load a page in my web browser. Feels like I'm on dialup. I have the fastest internet service you can get (Roadrunner Turbo Plus), but for some unknown reason my internet page access is painfully slow. I'm really thinking of using Time Machine to set my Mac back to Leopard, but I really don't want too. I figured I'd wait a few days to see if this problem surfaces, and perhaps a solution can be found.

Mac :: Mini Running Slow Since Loading Leopard / Make It High?

Dec 28, 2009

My Mac Mini has been running slow since I upgraded to Leopard several months ago. It is not Snow Leopard. My Mac Mini is running software version 10.5.8 and my processor is a 1.42 GHz PowerPC G4 with 512 MB RAM. Am I running slow since my Mac Mini is intel? Should I switch it back to Tiger or is there any other suggestions you can make. I have run the disk utility and have run the repair permissions. The computer is especially slow on Safari where it is faster on my MacBook pro.

Software :: Snow Leopard Running Damn Slow?

Feb 17, 2010

i bought a macbook pro 13' a month ago and am running snow leopard. This has been very frustrating as the computer is very very slow... can't scroll between firefox tabs, applications as word, iphoto and others take eternal time to open and i always get the frustrating color spinning wheel...

I've read that deleting the /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.audio.coreaudiod.plist file would solve the problem. I did so and the computer was running fine until a few days ago... the spinning wheel is back and i'm loosing my nerve.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: IMac 3.06 GHz With 12GB Of RAM Running Very Slow

Feb 1, 2012

My late 2010 iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 12gb of ram is running very slow. It takes a very long for the computer to boot with the desktop taking ages to fully load. Applications are also taking an unholy amount of time to load with the spinning wheel always appearing through out use, and they often crash or don't respond and close during use. I'm talking applications like Word taking 3 minutes to load and getting the spinning wheel when font size is tried to be changed and crashing and closing if a large volume of text is attempted to be pasted into a document.The computer is also failing to shut down properly just staying on a blue screen. I recently wiped and completed a fresh install however the issues came back.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Why Are Safari Pages Loading Very Slowly

Apr 10, 2012

I have DSL and AirPort Extreme on Snow Leopard imac. Web pages on Sarfari have been loading very slowly lately. I have the Activity window open (Sarfari>Window>Activity) to show all the page items as they are loading. The web pages usually get hung up and not all page items load. I have to Stop and Reload, sometimes several times to get the web page to load completely. This is very frustrating as I've been re-checking AirPort, Browser, and Mail settings. The Mail application runs fine.

IMac :: System Freezes And Running Very Slow With Snow Leopard

Mar 25, 2010

I have a 20" iMac mid 2007 2.4Ghz, 320GB, 2Gb machine running Snow Leopard. Today I turned it on and it was running fine. But around three hours of using it suddenly froze. I had to force the turn off using the power button. When i turned it back on it took about 4 mins to get to the login screen. Once I logged in the spinning wheel came up and the only think that loaded was the Spotlight sign. This kept happening until about the third time of turning it off and on. When it finally completed login. But it is now extremely slow and it just about freezes when I open more than one application.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Slow Running Mac While Having Free Space In Hard Drive?

Jan 31, 2012

My mac is slow. Obvious points are covered. Maximum RAM installed; All apple software updates downloaded and permissions repaired after each download.Activity Monitor shows no obvious 'hogs'.Hard Drive (250GB) has almost 50GB free I am considering some sort of clean up using something like ONYX but feel that the hardware /software package should be almost self maintaining.15 years using Macs, since OS5 but not minded to look under the hood very often, since that is what brought me to Apple in the first place.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: MacBook Running Slow - Restart Taking Over 10 Minutes

May 15, 2012

A few days ago, I found my macbook running slow. The starting time used to be 2+ min but slow down to 10+ min. I tried to reinstal by installation DVD but the time bar showed 5+ hours required. I restarted the macbook and tried to format the HD, after proper steps taken, the time bar showed 17 days. Instead booting from the system, I tried to boot direct from my installation DVD.

After formatted the HD and re-instal the system, the MacBook seems running smooth again. But after installation of other programs, the same problem recurred. The system was getting slow. Re-starting it required waiting over 10 minutes. I tried to re-format the HD and installed the system again but still doesn't work. Under the disk utility "first aid" scanning through the HD, it showed "Invalid key length." and "The volume Macintosh HD could not be verified completely."

MacBook Pro :: Running Really Slow And Loading Symbol Over Cursor Appears A Lot

Jun 27, 2014

I noticed ever since I downloaded "carbonite" It's been acting like this. It's slow and that little loading symbol over the cursor appears a lot. Could my hard drive

be failing or is it just something like I have too much stuff on my memory? I downloaded carbonite for crap just like this in case my hard drive crashes or something that I don't need. But the program seems like pretty much garbage anyway since it didn't even backup anything important and it seems like it doesn't even have enough storage or memory. It also doesn't even backup external files so it's kinda useless. Especially if this is the reason my Macbook Pro has been running slow.

Well anyway, this is all of the information I have. I'm going to back up everything on a floppy disk or something of that nature ASAP because my lively hood is on this laptop. I need to protect all my files and external files anyway I can. Is Timemachine any good

But when I am working on photos it seems to run ok. Is there away to solve this issue? Do I need to updated my RAM to make it run smooth?

Applications :: Safari 4 Slow Content Loading

Jan 23, 2010

it seems for me that Safari 4 is very slow at loading content. Most of the time, i am on broadband, but when i go over my limit, i get shaped to a much slower speed. (Typical Australia ISP!)

I noticed that while Safari loads a page, on the bottom toolbar, it says....

Loading "Website" completed # of #.

for example, on "ninemsn.com.au" it can take me quite a while for the page to load, as Safari does not load the content until ALL or most of the content has been downloaded.

is there a way/plugin for safari 4 to load content AS SOON as its been downloaded? I would like to see my pages load immediately as soon as the content has been loaded.

Safari :: It Slow And Not Loading WebPages After Changing Modems

Apr 3, 2012

I recently changed from an AT&T DSL modem to a Knology Cable Modem to improve speed and overall network capablity. However, ever since I have changed I have had problems with Safary lagging or not loading the websites. It doesn't do it all the time, but periodically.Sometimes it is worse than others.

Basic issue: When using Safari, it stalls when loading a website. Sometimes it will load, other times it will say that Safari cannot load the website.If you wait a while and retry loading it, it may then load it.

OS X :: Sources Detail Changes To Snow Leopard Installation Process

Aug 12, 2009

People familiar with Apple's upcoming Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard operating system are corroborating reports this week that the software has achieved Golden Master status, adding some additional insight on various enhancements and changes that users will notice during the installation process when compared to Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Build 10A432 reportedly went GM a bit earlier this week and is currently on its way to manufacturing, where it will pressed onto optical media ahead of a formal availability date next month. The GM build also began making its way into the hands of some Apple Care support representatives and Apple Technicians on Wednesday.

Some of the changes and enhancements to the Snow Leopard installation process are as follows:
Although Rosetta and Quicktime 7 are both included on the Mac OS X 10.6 installation DVD, both are designated as optional installs by default. However, if Mac OS X 10.6 is being installed on a Mac that contains a registration key for Quicktime 7 Pro, the installer will install Quicktime 7 automatically. Options to "Erase and Install" and "Archive and Install" are no longer present in the Mac OS X 10.6 installer. According to those familiar with the software, this was done for convenience, so that users do not accidentally erase and install their Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard partitions. However, "Erase and Install" remains available through Disk Utility, which is also included on the installation DVD.

If you need to reinstall 10.6, it automatically archives and installs for you. A reinstallation will not affect your Mac OS X version number. In other words, reinstallation of Mac OS X 10.6 on a Mac that contains Mac OS X 10.6.1 (when it becomes available) will not overwrite any new components delivered by 10.6.1. So when the re-install is complete, you will still be running Mac OS X 10.6.1. This will save users considerable time. There is no "Previous System" folder at the root level after reinstalling. If a power outage occurs, installation will pick up from where it left off. To prevent the Blue Screen error that plagued some users when upgrading to Mac OS X 10.5, a software compatibility check is included that has a list of known "bad" apps, and disables them. Those programs are moved to an "Incompatible Software" folder.

Unlike Mac OS X 10.5, you cannot install Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard on computers where the hard drive reports a S.M.A.R.T. failure. Installation initially triggers a large chunk of data to be copied from the installation DVD to the user's primary hard drive. The bulk of the installation is then managed from the hard drive, speeding up the installation process considerably. After a successful installation, that large chunk of data is automatically removed. Mac OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard is priced at $29 for the single user license and $49 for the five-license family pack. The upgrade prices are available for users of the current version of Mac OS X, 10.5 Leopard. Snow Leopard will only be available for Mac users on Intel-based computers.

Also available is Mac OS X Server 10.6 Snow Leopard. Priced at $499, Leopard Server is said to be the most significant improvement to the server operating system since Mac OS X Server was launched. Amazon is also selling box sets with Snow Leopard, featuring the OS, iWork and iLife for $169 and the five-license family pack, iWork and iLife for $229. For more on Apple's upcoming operating system, read AppleInsider's extensive Road to Snow Leopard series. For the sake of completeness, AppleInsider notes that it has heard some rumors that Snow Leopard could be released as early as August 24. However, these anecdotal tips cannot be confirmed with any degree of certainty at this time.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Ghost Sh Process Takes 95% Of Proc

May 25, 2012

I just noticed that there is a process named "sh" which takes between 90 and 95% of the proc all the time. I just installed all available updates, but I can't be sure this is related. 

The process I'm talking about cannot be seen in the activity monitor, but I can see it with istat. In command line, I'm unable to find it.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Disable Yellow Highlight During Search Process

Jun 21, 2012

This is not a question about the highlight color that you set in system preferences.When you search for text, the found text jumps out at you in blaring yellow, all too literally in your face. This was useful when they first introduced it in Safari-- but now it's all over the OS. In a text editor, where the search result might be a whole paragraph, it's agonizing. It's getting to where I have to look away from the screen when I hit Search, and wait a moment for the color to die down. Isn't there any way to disable it? It hurts my eyes.I found a thread from pretty exactly two years ago asking the same question:[url]

Applications :: Safari 4 Is Running Very Slow?

Jun 8, 2009

I downloaded Safari 4 today after it was released, but it's running REALLY slow for me. Especially on pages with a lot of images, and most websites I view have lots of images. It's constantly freezing, I always get that spinning rainbow, etc. I want to go back to Safari 3, but I can't figure out how. The safari4 dmg doesn't come with an uninstaller. And I can't re-download Safari 3 because I have a newer version on my computer. What can I do?

Safari :: It Is Running Incredibly Slow

May 25, 2012

I've been having an incredibly slow time with surfing the internet, and this has been going on for a few weeks. In order to make sure it wasn't due to the history or the cache, I've repeatedly erased them multiple times, cleaned up my desktop to make sure I didn't have any sort of files that could've potentially attributed to this, and have 700 GB left on my Mac, which should be plenty of space to not be considered full. It takes anywhere up to 30 second to a minute and a half to load a webpage.

Adding onto the frustration, loading or even watching a YouTube or any kind of video is just a pipe dream. Anytime I even click on a video, it just makes any that I click on to be one second long, then just suddenly end the video. Either that, or it pauses and takes forever to load. Before I went to school and work, I decided to test to see how long it would take for a five minute video to completely be able to watch so I left it paused, then left for the day. I came back twelve hours later, and it wasn't even half way done.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Memory Leak/siphoned Off Into A Process Called OSMServer

Sep 4, 2009

Well not so much a leak but since upgrading to Snow Leopard I've noticed that over time, a big chunk of my RAM is being siphoned off into a process called OSMServer. Does anyone know what it does and why? And more importantly how to stop it doing it? It's currently using over 1GB of my 4GB RAM and making the machine run like treacle.

The only way to clear it seems to be a full shut down and restart. Which is fine for a while until it fires back up and starts gobbling RAM again.
