I need to be using Firefox and wonder what the issue might be - Internet connection is fine as my mai l and Netscvape both work fine - very strange... Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.

    What version of Safari?

     

    Make a New Location, Using network locations in Mac OS X ...

     

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2712

     

    10.7…

     

    System Preferences>Network, top of window>Locations>Edit Locations, little plus icon, give it a name.

     

     

    10.5.x/10.6.x/10.7.x instructions...

     

    System Preferences>Network, click on the little gear at the bottom next to the + & - icons, (unlock lock first if locked), choose Set Service Order.

     

    The interface that connects to the Internet should be dragged to the top of the list.

     

    Instead of joining your Network from the list, click the WiFi icon at the top, and click join other network. Fill in everything as needed.

     

    Make a New Location, Using network locations in Mac OS X ...

     

    For 10.5/10.6, System Preferences>Network, unlock the lock if need be, highlight the Interface you use to connect to Internet, click on the advanced button, click on the DNS tab, click on the little plus icon, then add these numbers...

     

    208.67.222.222

    208.67.220.220

     

    Click OK.

     

    Also, turn off IPv6:

    System Preferences » Network » AirPort » TCP/IP tab » Configure IPv6

    I was going to suggest a new PRAM battery but I noticed inconsistent info in your profile. Screen shot 2012-07-27 at 8.55.27 AM.png

    A PowerMac cannot run Mac OS 10.7. Perhaps you have a Mac Pro instead--the appearance is similar. Easily settled by doing "About this Mac" and seeing what is reproted for processor type.

     

    If PPC or PowerPC, you are in the right forum but your OS in your profile is incorrect. If it says "Intel" you have a Mac Pro and may be better off asking in the Mac Pro forums in case that issue is not common to those older Macs (pre-2006 roughly) that this forum covers.

     

    If it's a Mac Pro, their forum is here:

     

    Mac Pro

     

    We can ask the Hosts to move the post for you if you wish.
