Currently Being ModeratedDec 28, 2010 6:26 AM (in response to EntoK)What browser are you using? Have you tried using OpenDNS servers? Reinstalling an entire OS for your issue is overkill and not necessary because it is not an OS issue. MacBook Pro 2.8 Ghz 15" / 4 Gb Ram, Mac OS X (10.6.5), iPhone 3GS
Currently Being ModeratedDec 28, 2010 6:30 AM (in response to EntoK)Try a different user on the Mini, or a test user, to see if the problem only happens within your account. If it happens in both accounts, you've probably got something in the root Library causing trouble.15" MacBook Pro i7 (Mid 2010), Mac Mini (Mid 2009), iPad, iPod, iPhone 4, Mac OS X (10.6.4), Go break something!

Currently Being ModeratedMar 3, 2011 6:07 PM (in response to EntoK)Same for me, started with Facebook on all browsers (FF, Chrome, Safari)a month or two from now, and today twitter and this very support.apple.com + some software like ClamXav cannot connect anymore to update their database, etc.
In VirtualBox with Ubuntu and VMWare Fusion Win XP : both with FF, same problem, same websites / IP
_It is neither the router nor the DNS_ since my wife's computer works fine on the same network with all those websites and apps (PowerPC 10.5.8)
_It is not the firewall either_ on or off, it does not change a thing.
So far, I managed to make it all work (even apps like ClamXav) by using Vidalia TOR + Tor add-on on FF || Tor Browser (Safari under Namaroka) works great too.
Tor makes browsing a little bit slower and anonymity can have its drawbacks, so it is not a long-term solution.
So for those in need of a quick access to their websites :
www.torproject.org > Download > Tor Browser Bundle for OS X Intel
Now, why is that it works with Tor and not without ?
What to do to solve the situation ?
TIA for any help !

Currently Being ModeratedMar 3, 2011 7:25 PM (in response to beantown696969)@k.panic : all user accounts on the same computer are affected. Then what kind of root Lib problem shall it be ? How to locate it ?

Currently Being ModeratedMar 4, 2011 11:18 AM (in response to beantown696969)I have the exact same problem with twitter.com can't connect to it no matter what I do using my MBP. Browser choice and DNS server make no difference. I can get straight on via my iPhone (which is connected to exactly the same network)
Checked my hosts list and proxy settings, can't see anything amiss. Anyone have more info on this issue?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6), 4GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedMar 4, 2011 2:23 PM (in response to abstruse1980)Do you guys have PeerGuardian? Deleted that and it fixed the problem.MacBook (Aluminum but not Pro), Mac OS X (10.6.6)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 15, 2011 11:48 AM (in response to EntoK)I am having the exact same issues with Apple.com and Twitter.com. Changing DNS to Google's or OpenDNS fixes issues with Apple.com (although I'm still not sure why the problem started in the first place with my ISP's DNS), but I still cannot access Twitter from ANY browser. Changing DNS does not fix the problem. The guy at the Apple store told me to reinstall my OS, which I did and that did not help. This is very annoying.Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 15, 2011 12:40 PM (in response to beantown696969)@beantown : I agree, PeerGuardian is at the root of the problem. If its lists are disable everything return to normal.
Quesiton is : how is that PeerGuardian interfere if the application is not even launched, not even as a process ?MacBook Pro2,2, Mac OS X (10.6.6), 2.33 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
