I have just upgraded to Mountain Lion 10.8 osx and now have the following error when trying to access some websites the error is "safari cant open the page http://www.google.co.uk/ because where the page this server is located isn't responding" I have only had this error since i upgraded to Mountain Lion via the app store on Thursday 25th July 2012.
Some websites seem ok but others will not load and eventually time out and get the above message about the server not responding
I have search on the internet checked proxies, clear DNS cache but no luck
Does anyone have the same problem with a fix?
I have a macbook pro icore 5 and I was running Lion prior to the upgrade, any help would be appreciated
Are you connecting over wifi or ethernet? I'm wondering if this is a wifi problem rather than a Safari problem. There's been a lot of problems with wifi and Mountain Lion. One solution that is having a lot of success is creating a new location and then renewing the DCHP lease. Try the procedure here, see if it improves anything:
I know that doesn't explain why you can connect via tor, but still might be worth a shot if for nothing else other than to rule it out.
