Over the last 1 - 2 months the following problems have developed (potentially all at the same time, it's only taken me this long to find them) with my iMac G5. By comparison my intel MacBook has none of these problems.

- Safari (4.0.3) doesn't display certain images eg Profile pics on Facebook, is slow to open some
pages or won't load at all, eg Flickr, eBay, and the Apple website.
- Firefox is the same
- Can not connect to the iTunes store
- Search in Google Earth times out
- Subscriptions in iPhoto won't connect
- The 'Remote' application on my iPod Touch times out when attempting to connect to my iTunes
library

Have tried resetting the router as all the problems point to it being a network problem, however as 1 MacBook and 2 PCs proved this did nothing. The only other lead I have is the pop up on my iPod suggesting it is the Mac's firewall.

Has anyone else found they are having these problems? How do I fix it?

iMac G5, Mac OS X (10.5.8), none

    *A few suggestions:*
    Try running +repair disk+ from your *software install DVD* and afterwards, run +repair permissions+ *from your HD.*

    ==============

    "Safari (4.0.3) doesn't display certain images eg Profile pics on Facebook, is slow to open some"
    The Safari users hang out in the Safari Forums

    ===========

    "Firefox is the same"
    See if clearing out the history & cache helps. You can do this through FF Preferences.
    Also, make sure you are using the latest version of FF.

    ===========

    "Have tried resetting the router as all the problems point to it being a network problem"
    System Preferences>Network
    Click the Assist Me button.
    In the next window that pops up, click the Diagnostic button & do the necessary.
    Check the troubleshooting section of your router user manual and/or its website if the above does not work.

    ===============

    How much RAM do you have?

    How much HD space do you have left?
