What does it mean when it pops up, "Safari cannot open the page because the address is invalid"? I am on hulu.com trying to watch an episode, I click on that episode and get the above message. What do I do so I can watch the show?

    That is probably an error on the Hulu site. Doesn't Hulu use Flash for viewing? If yes then that will not work on your iPad.

    You might have better success with Hulu if you just download the Hulu app from the App store.......

    I have the safari icon in my dock, when I click it to open safari I get a message saying safari cannot open the page because the address is invalid. Here's the address that pops up when I try to open safari,http://,k/

    Obviously that address is incorrect. Clear your cache and home page in safari.

    Just a guess but it probably means that the address is invalid.

    OK, of course, but the fact is it WAS a valid address, one I've been to many times, but sometimes I get that message!

    The address you provided, http://,k/ is not a valid address. It never worked and never will work. Valid addresses are of the form http://somedomainname.topleveldomain.

     

    See the difference? Your address will never work. Once again clear your browser cahe and retype the correct address in the browsers address bar. At some point you likely incorrectlt typed http://,k/ into the address bar and that address is not cached in your browser.
