I suspect it has something to do with your ISP.
Adding Open DNS codes to your Network Preferences, should give good results:
If you are using a single computer: Open System Preferences/Network. Double click on your connection type, or select it in the drop-down menu, and in the box marked 'DNS Servers' add the following two numbers:
(You can also enter them if you click on Advanced and then DNS)
Sometimes reversing the order of the DNS numbers can be beneficial in cases where there is a long delay before web pages start to load, and then suddenly load at normal speed:
If your computer is part of a network: please refer to this page: http://www.opendns.com/start/bestpractices/#yournetwork and follow the advice given.
I've tried the openDNS, registred as Basic user..... sounds nice the service, BUT....
my problem still there! I strongly believe that the problem is not in the internet connection (I've tried on home network, company network, free wifi in two different locations.......) always the same result.
What makes me feel that the problem comes from my macbook is that Safari display the error page in no-time after hitting the return key. It's instantaneous.
Another clue, i've installed firefox, as well from firefox i get the same result.
Try troubleshooting the Safari .plist file.
Open a Finder window. Select your Home Folder in the Sidebar on the left. It has a small house icon. Then open the Library folder then the Preferences folder.
Move the com.apple.Safari.plist file from the Preferences folder to the Desktop. Now launch Safari. If you can access those sites, the move the .plist file to the Trash.
So the com.apple.Safari.plist can be trashed without problems right?
Do you know why this influenced as well firefox? is firefox using the same preferences of Safari?
Preferences files can become corrupted, it happens.
No, Firefox has it's own separate set of preferences.
I'm glad it's working for you.
