First thing to try is emptying the Safari browser cache, mwpad.
Simply head to the Safari menu and select 'Empty cache".
RodMBP 13"2.26, MBP15"2.2, iMacG520"RevB , MB2CD, MBCD, ,PM5400/180 & earlier, Mac OS X (10.6.3), 7 chooks, 2 dogs, 2 daughters, 1 pear tree, 0 partridges, itinerant bats, magpie
I am having the same issue! My MBP is only 9 months old and immediately following my latest iTunes update, my pages on safari are SLOOOOOOOW to load? Any additional advice?pc, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Same Problem - 3 days ago. using forefox everything is okay, Mail retrieves mail ok.
Just Safari. Resetting Safari and deleting plist, cookies, meta, cache - repairing permissions. Restarting - allows apple.com/startpage to load - but 2nd page never will.(Main) MacBook Pro 15", Powerbook G4, eMac, iMac, Mini, PowerMac, etc., Mac OS X (10.5.8), Leopard Server, Tiger Server, etc...
I have similar problems, on 2 iMacs, 2GB-ram, latest OS etc. Even did complete reinstall form DVD.
What I notice is that when I let a page load until I get the "network diagnostics" page and run the diagnostics in most cases everything turns back to normal. I do not even have to reload the stalled pages, they simply reload (of course) and quick (not of course).
Maybe this helps someone?
I have followed all advice already including cleaning cache, favicons etc. Changing DNS (google, own ISP, opendns,....) some sudo + tricks but nothing seems to work except the network diagnostics.
Good luck you all
Mine never reaches the "network diagnostics stage".
However - I found a fix - I downloaded Webkit, the nightly build of Safari - it updated itself and works fine.
A side efffect is that Safari started working again the next day. Worth a try.(Main) MacBook Pro 15", Powerbook G4, eMac, iMac, Mini, PowerMac, etc., Mac OS X (10.5.8), Leopard Server, Tiger Server, etc...
Currently Being ModeratedAug 25, 2010 10:48 PM (in response to Neil McGillivray)How did webkit update itself? I downloaded webkit from http://builds.nightly.webkit.org/files/trunk/mac/WebKit-SVN-r66052.dmg but unless I double click the webkit.app nothing happens. Did I misunderstood you?
Would be great if the browsers start to work again. It is a mystery. Firefox and Safari (and omniweb) behave very similar. When I access a troubles page (maps.google.com) from within FF with TOR proxy it works fine but without it stalls.
Currently Being ModeratedAug 26, 2010 10:58 AM (in response to Neil McGillivray)No luck so far. Browsers still very slow if not slower. Via proxies all is fine so the wireless network we use seems to work. Skype, email and all also fine, no problems. mDNSResponder is hanging/not getting data from the network. I can see it sends but it doesn't or cannot receive data. I turned on LittleSnitch for a moment to check this. Well, the mystery remains...
Currently Being ModeratedAug 26, 2010 11:15 AM (in response to JC.fi)Hi,
I went to http://nightly.webkit.org/ and downloaded. Start up Webkit
You can use Webkit in place of Safari. Webkit is Safari...Safari is Webkit. But the side-effect for me was that Safari 5.0.1 started working properly again.
Of course there is not guarantee you will get the same result.
Under the Safari menu - there is "Check for Webkit Updates..."(Main) MacBook Pro 15", Powerbook G4, eMac, iMac, Mini, PowerMac, etc., Mac OS X (10.5.8), Leopard Server, Tiger Server, etc...
Currently Being ModeratedAug 26, 2010 11:16 PM (in response to Neil McGillivray)Did that but no success.
Could you perhaps check if this link opens well in your browser
In ours this is a acid test by now
Thanks again for trying to solve this problem.
Currently Being ModeratedAug 27, 2010 1:57 AM (in response to Neil McGillivray)you won't believe it but it seems to work. I did do a lot of things:
- reset to the default settings in airport
- configure step by step airport and the network settings
but in the end what made a true difference was
sudo dscacheutil -flushcache
Suddenly the kartat.eniro.fi page loaded in a flash
Very likely the effectiveness will degrade over time but I will try to "sudo dscacheutil -flushcache" again and see what happens. Perhaps I write a startup script for this
Nada, or in english, nothing. It works once and a while with this "trick". The last time Safari told me "this page cannot be loaded" or something along those lines. I got the "network doctor" again let it check the nextwork, all is fine and pages reloads again.
Don't get it
I keep writing here in the hope someone benefits from my ramblings
