Good day everyone. A few months ago I asked for help regarding my browsers constant crashing. The problems still exist. I am taking some online courses since I lost my job a few months ago, but it has become impossible to complete these courses because my browsers keep crashing. I tried Safari, Opera, Firefox, and even Netscape, but they all keep crashing. I took advice from one of the people who responded. That person suggested that I created a New Account with Safari alone as my browser, but Safari also crashed with that new account. What else can I do? I paid for these online courses but I cannot keep my browsers open long enough to even finish the first session.
I just noticed that my umbp is kind of slow. For example, safari used to load up less than a second. Now it takes about two to four bounces. Then, it will take 1 second to start up. On Firefox, it usually takes 5 to 6 bounces to start up as well. Could there be a lot going on through my activity monitor?
This one has me banging my head! I am not able to open certain web sites from Safari, Fire Fox or G Chrome. But I can if I do it within Parallels...Can someone help with this? I have done a search on this forum, but have come up empty.I rely need to do some work using the web site that I cannot open.
I had some updates for my Macbook Pro (snow leopard- up to date) and for some reason now I can't open pdfs on the web on either safari or firefox. If I download them it works, but I can't view them on the acutal browser anymore. When I open a website that is the link to the pdf it just pulls up a black page- that's it, you refresh it refreshes the same thing. I reinstalled Adobe reader (I use Preview though) and still nothing. I don't kow *** is going on.
Some time ago my Safari and Firefox sites stopped opening PDF's in 10.6.8. I went to a genius who said there were no viruses, but he couldn't figure out what to do. Today, I upgraded to 10.7.4; but I still have the same problem on my MAcBook Air. I would hate to have to erase my drive and reinstallnOS 10.6 and 10.7 and all other programs
Info: MacBook Air (11-inch Late 2010), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
Not sure if this is a Hotmail thing or a browser thing, but if someone attaches a jpeg to an email I recieve in Hotmail, when I click it in Firefox I get a dialogue box asking: What should Firefox do with this file? Open With [choose...] or Save file?In Safari, it just automatically downloads the picture to the default download location and then auto opens it with Preview.This is so annoying! How do I set my browsers to just open jpegs within the browser?
I think since I updated my mac OS X lion 10.7.2 to 10.7.3. I cannot open YouTube no matter the browser I use it's always the same, so I checked my flash player version and I have the latest one so I don't think the flash player is the problem, I don't know what to do.
Whenever i open gmail it freezes and there are a long line of chat icons and then I have to go to 'spaces' to a new screen and force safari to quit- If I stay away from Gmail then safari is fine and I can also use gmail from another computer which seems really strange. I can also access mail from apple mail without any problems.
I love the idea of a one-stop media center like iTunes, but as each new feature is added it just feels too big and slow to me now. It takes forever to open, it lags even when I just try scrolling through apps, it sends regular genius updates to Apple, it has a radio, ringtones, movies, tv shows, the list goes on. Does anyone else feel the same way?
I've had my macbook pro for about a month. Its everything you read about when you make the switch. Great build, screen, keyboard, stable, ease of use. Everything...except internet surfing. It's a big disappointment. I spend a lot of time waiting for pages to load..or getting the safari can't open message. (When I refresh this page I often will get the page to pop right up.)
I loaded a plug in recommended in the site "my first mac"...but no difference. I loaded firefox but get the same results. My 3 year old sempron dell inspiron and my wifes new Dell studio 17 both kick the macbook pro's butt in surfing so i don't believe its my home network. I have gone to the genius bar and they did some minor stuff but I have the same issues still.
I have tried 3 of them. Firefox, Flock and Safari. All seem to crash after 3 minutes or so but can last up to 10. It started happening when i was watching some videos on Youtube and then when i went to go and watch another it wouldnt load it up. And since then i have came across this problem. I tried phoning Apple but at �35 just to fix this seems a bit steep. does anyone have any ideas?
I am running the above OS on my clamshell iBook Currently ive got IE 5.1 as my browser, but its not displaying pages properly, and facebook refuses to use it! I also have tried iCab, but is seems horribly slow to load anything. Any suggestions for a better browser for me?
Just curious how many Browsers do you have downloaded, and list them In order of usage. I recently switched to Firefox 3.5 to be my default from Safari 4. So I'm only using two, but probably will try Opera and looking forward to Chrome when it comes out.
All three of my browsers (Opera 10.10, Firefox 3.5.6, Safari 4.0.4) crash repeatedly when accessing www.nytimes.com (most common site). I am running OSX 10.5.8 on an iMAC G4 with 768MB RAM. I ran Onyx and repaired the permissions but to no avail. Other websites have failed but the nytimes site causes instantaneous failure.
Just recently i have found that both Firefox and Safari have been "not responding" when i have tried to view some pages... namely some pages on the bbc news site and the guardian site and also [URL] It appears they are pages with some form of embedded video on them. its rather infuriating. the pages begin to open then all i get is the spinning rainbow and all other firefox or safari pages hang too.
Flash macromedia player isn't working on my browsers. I go to adobe's website and I download the player and it says successfully installed but when I go to some websites that need macromedia flash player it doesn't work.
I'm very new to the MAC scene. I have only had my iMAC for a bit over a month. I'm fairly comfortable with using it as it's much like a PC in many ways. I do have one issue though, I do not know if you can open several Browsers at the same time like you can do in the Windows environment. I know I can use the alternate search panel at the top right but I have to use the back arrow to return to the previous panel. Must be a way, I'm just not finding it and maybe a bit dull at this point..
Neither Safari (v4) nor Firefox can connect to the internet. However, my internet connection is fine, and iTunes is currently downloading a video podcast no problem, in fact I can see under Activity Monitor that it's downloading at 110KB/sec, which is blazing fast for where I live (Indonesia). I can also get email no problem. And the other weird thing, is that I can use Safari for Windows no problem on my Windows side (through Parallels), which I'm using right now.
I did recently update to Safari 4, but up to now I've had no problems. And the fact that I can't use Firefox either leads me to believe it's not just a Safari problem. The only thing I can think is my ISP has recently been updating their system, and I have had some issues recently connecting, but right now my internet connection is otherwise great. Does this have something to do with DNS servers or something? Why can I use Windows browsers on my Mac no problem (through Parallels on Windows XP) but not Apple browsers? I'm on OS 10.5.7 FYI.
For the past week or two my internet browsers (safari and firefox) have been acting very strange. They are both constantly freezing (spinning wheel), which I can live with, but the worst part is that they both seem to be losing their internet connection all the time. I don't use safari a lot, but I use firefox every day. If I completely close the program (so, Quit Firefox) and then open it again it works fine for a couple of pages but then it starts just loading forever without something actually happening. If I close it, again it's fine for a couple of pages. This all started happening after I downloaded Hotspot Shield and Freedur, both of which I uninstalled within an hour of installing. I can't find any residuals of these program. In Firefox my search history has also been almost completely deleted and for some reason the suggestions in Google and Youtube have been turned off. I don't have any extra add-ons or plug-ins.
All of my browsers, Safari 4.05, Chrome 5.0.375 and Mailplane, freeze upon going to certain sites or when I check my mail. Like, when I go on Youtube, it would freeze on the huge banner ad, yet when I'm linked to a video and go to it, it doesn't freeze and the video plays back fine. Email doesn't work either, both GMail and Yahoo Mail. And it doesn't work on my mail application Mailplane. And sites like [URL] both freeze up.
I have a new 13" macbook pro. I updated to the new flash and now every time I go to a page that contains flash, my browser crashes. I've tried on safari, firefox and I'm currently on Chrome. I have no idea what to do. Everything else works fine it's just when I go on a site containing flash it crashes. I wanted to watch a stream from ustream and every time I went on the site it crashed. I've never been on that site, but I'm guessing they use flash. So, I downloaded the latest flash and now it's even worst. What do I do? The program actually freezes, but I can't do anything so I have to force quit it. Except Chrome I only need to exit the tab, I think.
