Software :: Strange Characters On Web Pages

Sep 26, 2009

Here's a strange one for you. Sometimes when I visit websites (with Firefox 3.0 or 3.5), certain characters are replaced with strange symbols or white question marks on black background.

Anyone know what's going on and how to fix it?

Software :: Any Application For Storing Web Pages

Feb 1, 2008

A friend of mine (PC user) used a program which copies a web-page as well as all sub-pages linked within the main page. We used it two years ago a road-trip when we wanted to read about up coming locations while we had no connection. It has been two years, by now there must be any equivalent app for the Mac side.

OS X :: Web Pages Not Display Or Even Load Correctly

Jul 10, 2010

I have a Macbook running Leopard and am having problems with the wireless internet at home. Everything works fine when I take my computer other places - just not at home. The trouble is that while some pages load fine, others do not display correctly or simply don't even load at all. The other computers on this network (all PCs) run fine, so I am guessing that it has something to do with settings on my computer, the router, or both. Unfortunately, though, I have no idea what to try.

Safari :: Can't Click On New Web Pages

Apr 16, 2012

Often when I click on a weblink, Safari tries to load the new page, but nothing. The web address shows up in the bar at the top, but no response. It happens often. But, even when I'm having trouble, navigating around in some closed community like Facebook works fine, so it's not an internet connection problem. (I thought it was a connection problem at first--poor wiring?--but since I can move around in Facebook, I'm dismissing that.)  Also, it happens both when the computers are connected through the routers or directly via Ethernet to the AT&T U Verse modem.  

This started when we switched from Comcast cable to AT&T, but there have been numerous Safari updates since then. I don't really think it is a Safari problem. The only PC on the home network doesn't show this problem (but it is an older, slow PC); both Macs on the network exhibit the problem. Happens whether we use the ethernet network or go wireless (non-Apple routers).

OS X :: Web Pages Takes Multiple Tries Before Loading Completely

Apr 7, 2009

I've got four computers (2 OSX, 2 XP)and an NAS networked and sharing internet via DSL from Verizon using their Actiontec GT704WG modem. All computers are connected via gigabit ethernet (NOT wireless, though the Actiontec wireless is used by some appliances in the house (Wii, iPhones, TiVo, Airport Express, occasional laptop). I am not using the router features of the Actiontec. I have 1 ethernet cable going from the Actiontec into a gigabit switch and the computers are connected to the switch. I can tell from the switch they are all networked at gigabit speeds (except for the Actiontec, of course).

File transfers and connections between my computers appears to be fine, but internet connections appear to get bogged down regularly. On all the computers, the biggest symptom I see is that pages will refuse to load or only load partially. Most of the time, if I reload the page, it will finally load, but sometimes it takes multiple tries before the page finally loads completely. The only way to fix the problem is to reset our internet connection. Sometimes just powering down the Actiontec for 15 seconds works. Most of the time, I have to power it down, and unplug it for 30 seconds. Sometimes I have to do this multiple times before everything is fixed and the computers can access internet again. I find I have to do this anywhere from twice a day to once every other day.

I've purchased Jing but it won't do it. Are there any other applications available for Snow Leopard? Now I am using Jing to capture each piece of the page and then stitching them together in photoshop. There has to be a better way.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Stop Sliding Web Pages

Safari :: 5.1.5 Shows .pdf Web Pages As Black?

May 9, 2012

Safari 5.1.5 shows .pdf web pages as black. The same thing happens with Firefox, at least with the few pages I've checked. Does this have something to do with an AdobePDF plug-in? I recently had to restore my system from Time Machine backup.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: IMac Will Not Load Web Pages

May 18, 2012

I upgraded my internet yesterday to 100Mbps, and received a modem + router combo from my ISP (Charter). It is a Netgear CG3000D and I have another router hooked up, which is a Cisco/Linksys E3200. The problem I'm encountering is extremely slow page speeds, it'll take from 3 to 5 minutes for pages to load. My first thought was DNS, but of course I tried Google's Public DNS and OpenDNS. Unfortunately, they did not work. I called both the ISP and router manufacturer, but still no luck. I called Apple, but I'm not paying $49 for additional support. I'm assuming my Mac is caching something it's not supposed to. I do not live near an Apple store to see what's wrong. I went into safe mode and the issue still hasn't been resolved. There's multiple devices working fine, and I've noticed when my Mac is connected to my router, my PC goes haywire as well. And FYI -- I connected my iMac directly to the ISP's modem/router and it didn't work either.

OS X :: Slow Web Sharing / Streaming Speed On Diffrent Pages

Dec 6, 2010

I have web sharing on so I can stream all the media on my computer's hard drive to my ipod touch.It works, but the speed performance is pretty terrible. I'm just streaming videos over my local wifi network (not through the net) and the playback buffer on my ipod touch will take a while to start, then there'll be a burst where the buffer starts moving forward reasonably quickly, then it'll suddenly completely stop adding more to the buffer, wait a little while, and then suddenly start adding more into the buffer.

I'm running this on my own wifi network at home, it should be blazing.In fact, I actually get much better streaming speeds into my ipod touch when I actually do watch a video I'm streaming from some other website on the net.

Applications :: Monitor Web Pages For Changes And Send Email Alerts?

Mar 25, 2007

I was wondering if anyone knows of a good app for the Mac that will monitor a given web page for any changes in content and immediately send an email or other alert letting me know. I don't care so much about the particular changes, just the fact that a change was made.

I was looking at Web Secretary, but it's a *nix app that doesn't have a GUI and I'm not entirely sure it would do what I need. I would rather have something a bit more user-friendly anyway, and preferably free.

PowerPC :: Web Pages Loading And Streaming Video Slow

Mar 17, 2008

I'm wondering how much life is left in my 900 MHz G3 iBook (v2.3 with 256 MB). I only use it for web browsing, word processing, and minor media storage, but it's definitely showing its age. Web pages take a while to load and streaming video's too slow to be usable. Would a RAM upgrade solve this, or is it even worth the investment?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Saving PDF Pages As Web Archives

(I'm taking a punt as to this being the correct forum in the absence of any other guidance!) For some unknown reason I no longer seem to be able to save any pdf pages from the web as web archives on to my desktop - or anywhere else for that matter. I try File/Save as. but all I get is a pop-up which states "The document “title of page.pdf” could not be exported as “title of page.pdf". I have never experienced this before now and am sure I have successfully saved such pdfs since I upgraded to Lion.

Applications :: Using Safari - Won't Load Web Pages After 10 Minutes?

Dec 8, 2003

i'm having some serious problems with Safari.

i have already had to quit it 3 times today because it just wouldn't load web pages. i'm typing this in Opera now...

i can open web pages fine when i freshly open Safari, but then if i leave it for about 10 minutes, then come back and want to use it again, it's useless, and so far i haven't been able to access anything if i leave Safari open for more than 10 minutes.

i've just got the Security Update 2003-12-05 which is supposed to fix some Safari stuff... but this problem hasn't really started until yesterday.

Software :: Web Pages Won't Load / Using Same Ethernet Cable?

I have a MacBook Pro with OS X 10.5.6 I connect to the internet with an ethernet cable direct into the wall. When I open the network connection box, it says the ethernet is connected, but it will not load any web pages. Friday I was using it fine and then got off. Came back a bit later and could no longer connect to any pages. I have spoken to my internet provider and they say my settings are fine. I am online on my desktop that connects using the same ethernet cable. I am not having any trouble connecting on it. I went and bought a new ethernet cable, just in case it was the problem
