Intel Mac :: Why Is OpenDNS Blocking Sites In Safari

May 11, 2012

I upgraded Safari last night through Software Update. 

This morning I tried to go to one of my regular sites and OpenDNS blocks me from it. 

I don't use OpenDNS. I did a couple of years ago when I was having speed issues with Safari. It didn't help so I dropped it. Turned out that was a modem problem that couldn't handle DNS prefetching. So why is it back? Why is it blocking me? And how do I stop it?

Safari :: Google Cookies Aren't Being Blocked?

Jun 21, 2012

Why can I still get Google cookies even when when I have "Always block cookies" checked? I can close Safair, then reopen it without even entering any site and Google will stick their *#@*&@ cookies and cache files in my Website data file? 

The "tons" of cache files that I don't even go to the site keep cluttering up the website data file also. 

If I don't shut down Safari before unchecking "always" and returning to "from 3rd parties" sites that were visited will have their cookies appear, even though don't have that site page open. 

The iOS Safari seems to be better at preventing cookies and cache files from accumulating.

Applications :: Domain Not Found With Firefox But Safari OK?

Apr 24, 2009

I'm coming across this bit of annoyance lately that has to do with me going to a url in firefox and sometimes getting a 'domain not found'. But if I go and open the same url in safari, the website comes up. Then just to check, I'll go back in firefox and its still not working. Then after awhile firefox will work again.

Applications :: Autocomplete In FF While Using OpenDNS?

Oct 13, 2009

Does anyone have a workaround to get FF 3.5.3 to autocomplete addresses of a single word (i.e., "google" goes to "[URL]" automatically)�I use OpenDNS and it always goes to some OpenDNS page. (Safari works perfectly btw.)

OpenDNS people seem to say it's an FF issue so it's not their problem.

OS X :: Slow Internet Using DNS Or OpenDNS

Nov 2, 2009

I'm absolutely struggling with getting a decent connection speed on my mac. This started happening a few weeks ago and haven't been able to get it sorted after many hours of searching, restarting, recreating connections, etc. There are three computers in the house. 1 PC, 2 Macs.
The PC and the older Mac 1.3 have no problem with connection speed, getting 5Mb/s downloads ans 0.75Mb/s uploads. The other mac is 10.5 with all the updates. It is currently getting 0.28Mb/s Download and 0.66Mb/s Upload. I've the OpenDNS or 4.2.2.x entries in the DNS, and that hasn't fixed the problem.

The older mac does not use these entries and it still connects fine. Strangely, Skype works with full video and no issues with connectivity, which makes me think that some ports are able to get more than the 0.28Mb/s download, as I doubt I would get Skype video at such slow speeds. I've tried FF and Safari, both crazy slow. I don't have access to the WiFi base-station, but clearly it is working fine because both of my other computers are connecting to the internet without a problem. I'm running out of options, and there is no Mac store within 200 miles of where I live.

OS X :: Keep Redirecting To OpenDNS Pages On MacBook

Aug 4, 2010

I have Roadrunner through Bright House Networks, and every now and then, my Macbook won't be able to load a webpage (completely random, both the time and the page itself). I thought this was just an issue with Bright House's DNS servers, so I set up OpenDNS. The issues persist. This also seems to be happening on another MBP in the house. When I boot into Windows via Boot Camp, everything works just fine.

MacBook Pro :: Safari Is Taking Up Whole Desktop

Jun 4, 2012

All of a sudeene when I use Safari, it opens and takes up my whole screen.  I want to make it smaller, but the top of the tool bar only shows the back button and the bar, I do not see Safari or any of the red, green and yellow buttons.  I'm not sure how this happened, but my grandson was using my computer to check his email and after that, Safari changed to this.

Feb 24, 2012

During the past week or so, I've had difficulty accessing YouTube videos.  At first, they would not load at all; now, in the past couple of days, they have been loading after a couple of minutes of leaving the page open.  I have installed the lastest version of the flash play and emptied my cache on Safari.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Safari Taking Over Default Firefox Browser

Mar 30, 2012

I have just recently installed Lion on my iMac. Even though I have Firefox listed as my default browser in both Firefox and in Safari, any links in Apple mail default to Safari rather than to Firefox and any URL's I save in Firefox default to the Safari icon. While I understand that Safari is an Apple product that is tied to their OS's, I want to continue to use Firefox as my default browser.

OS X :: Slow Internet Browsing / Safari Or Firefox Taking Long Time

Mar 4, 2009

I've had my MBP for about a year and recently I noticed that when I open Safari or Firefox it takes FOREVER to load a page.Even a small page like Google! I tried a reset for both browsers but that didn't help.I did some maintenance but no help there either.

This is my first Mac so I wanted to ask if I'm missing something.. should I be doing something maintenance-like that I'm not?

Safari :: Crashes / Hangs Frequently - YouTube Taking Long To Load

Jun 7, 2012

I'm using a Macbook Pro (latest version) with basic specs as below :
Mac OS X V.10.7.4
Processor : 2.4Ghz
Intel Core i7 Memory : 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Safari Ver 5.1.7
Safari doesn't reload fast and crashes / hangs frequently. Youtube takes a long time to load and when it's up, the visuals, audio are jerky. Vimeo hardly loads up. This machine is only about a month old and it acts up sluggishly. Some other programs running are slow too.

OS X :: Safari Taking Long Time To Load Pages / Spinning Beach Ball For Several Minutes

Jan 17, 2011

I am running a MacPro 2.66 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon with 8 GB RAM and OS 10.6.6 that is connected to an AirPort Extreme connected to a Westell DSL modem. Lately I have been experiencing strange behavior that I can not solve. When I first start up, Safari and Mail generally launch and work properly. But after a while, from 10 minutes to an hour, I get strange behavior. In Safari, pages take a long time to load- with a spinning beach ball for several minutes. Or they don't load at all. In Mail, I can't get new mail- a get a message that I'm not connected to the internet. When I go to System Preferences and check the Network, it says I am connected.

Rebooting usually solves the problem, but I am forced to reboot once an hour or so. Also, other programs show strange behavior- either failing to launch or crashing. This happens frequently with Photoshop Elements 9 and occasionally with Pages. I am also running a PowerPC Dual 2.3 GHz using OS 10.5.8 off the AirPort Extreme that runs fine and experiences none of these problems. Both machines are connected by ethernet cables to the AirPort Extreme.

OS X :: Upgrading To A Mac Mini - Blocked By The Copyright On The DVD?

Apr 19, 2009

I'm going to be upgrading to a Mac Mini within the next couple of months (from a knackered Windows PC), mainly to use as a media centre, and i am going to be backing up alot of my DVD's to use and play on the Mini itself. I have downloaded the Windows version of Handbrake this morning just to see how good it is and to get a feel for it properly before i start using it on a regular basis on my new Mac Mini.However, when trying to rip a DVD, i get a message saying "File not Found" and then a message about the copyright or something? This happens after scanning the DVD (Snatch, to be specific) and it won't let me rip the DVD.. it's as if it either doesn't recognise it or is being blocked by the copyright on the DVD.

OS X :: Bluetooth Transfer To LG Phone Blocked

Feb 2, 2010

Until the recent large update (149 mgb) to iTunes I was able to pair my LG phone to my wife's iMac and transfer mp3 files either way using Bluetooth. Now when I pair the phone and go to Browse Device on the iMac it lists all of my phone memory files but will only open the the SDPicture file. When I click on the SDMusic file it says operation failed. Is this just Apple protecting their rice bowl with regard to music sales or is it a glitch in the software?

Power Mac :: Installing New Software Blocked

May 12, 2012

I'm trying to help a friend.  She has a Mac desktop (tower, not an iMac); a G4 running 10.5.8.  When we try to download and install any apps (she needed Skype but I also tested Wunderlist), the .dmg opens a disk image okay, but the app itself has a forbid line through it.  I copy it over to applications, but when I try to start it, I get the message (her system is in French) to the effect that the "application was not incorporated into the architecture of the system" (my translation).  I checked all the settings on her account and she doesn't seem to have any parameters blocking her (like parental controls) from downloading or installing.  She doesn't have any antivirus stuff running, as far as I can tell from her login items.  I created an account for myself, with administrator privileges, then shut down and logged myself in.  The same thing happened to me: not able to install any software.  Back in her account, I ran disk utilities to fix permissions, and I updated all her software.

Motion 5 :: Text Keeps Getting Partly Blocked Out?

Jun 27, 2014

In Motion 5, I'll be working and everything will look fine, and then I'll export the project to find some of the text looks like this: [URL] .....

It seems to happen completely randomly, and sometimes I can go back and retype it and that'll fix it, but a lot of the time it doesn't fix the problem.
