how do you disable ipv6?? Where is the setting in general?
Specifically: System Preferences->Network->Advanced...(lower right button)->TCP/IP(tab)->Configure IPv6:->Off(pop-up menut)

Safari cant open this page

I have been frustrated by the same issue as well but because I only experienced the error while using Safari I never even considered ipv6 vs. ipv4 as a possible cause/solution.
Thank *you* for your time and for sharing the fix!

After countless googling, THANK GOD i found your thread. I sold my mac mini to someone who claimed that the ethernet wasnt working anymore when I know it did before. It was the same issue you had and your troubleshoot worked. Phew!

Oh thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this! I've been having this horfiic frusttration with my Macbook Pro fo days, about to take it to the Apple Store. That ipv6 tip, choosing "off" solved the problem. You were so kind to spread the word.

Maybe you had a different problem to mine. I kept getting a message for one site (which I had accessed without any problem almost every week before) that 'Safari cannot find server'. Someone else on this Forum came up with System Preferences - Internet - DNS - change DNS to 188.8.131.52. That worked for me.

turning ipv6 settings off worked for me. I had the exact same problem - apple, yahoo and google wont load but cnn, NYtimes etc loaded just fine. Thanks for recommending this suggestion. A question though - does turing this off make your computer vulnerable?

Not at all, if anything it makes you less vulnerable.
However, it could prevent you from visiting web sites in the future as more of them are given IPv6 addresses only. I know this has started in some parts of Asia and over time will effect everybody.

Thank you so much for this answer!
I have been searching fora and fiddling with my iMac for days now. And the solution was so simple.
Though it is kind of strange that on my MacBook, the automatic IPv6 configuration is working. Could be because of the OS - I have 10.9 on the fine-working MacBook and 10.6 on the troubled iMac.

I seem to have the same problem: 1 in 3 pages just wont' load until I hit refresh few times.
Do you know how to disable it in my case?
fyi, I have MBA 2013 (OS X 10.9.1)

I see from this thread that disabling IPv6 fixes this. However, when I got to System Preferences->Network (WiFi)->Advanced->TCP/IP(tab)->Configure IPv6 I have no Off option
Do you know how to disable it in my case?
First you need to determine whether or not your ISP is providing you with IPv6 service and if so is it native or something known as "6to4". If your ISP is providing you with Native IPv6 then you normally be better off setting it to Automatically.
If they only provide 6to4 service currently, then it's a toss up whether that works better or worse than IPv4 only. To disable set it to "Link-local only"

Well, as far as I know my ISP doesn't provide IPv6 at the moment. I have a very basic broadband network anyway.
Does this mean that setting it to 'Link-local only' would disable the IPv6? I just wonder why there is no Off option..
