    What exactly happens when you try?

     

    Are these http or https sites/pages?

     

    Try putting these numbers in Network>TCP/IP>DNS Servers, for the Interface you connect with...

     

    208.67.222.222

    208.67.220.220

     

    Then Apply.

    For 10.5/10.6 Network, highlight Interface>Advanced button>DNS tab>little + icon.

    You have save my life. that simple solution fix my problem in no time . Thank you, Thank you , Thank you. I have no idea what that means but it sure fix it.  By the way the web pages were http and when I try to open the window it will act as if it was pulling the page but it will never load and the search bar would not get pass 1/4 of the way

    Ah, great to hear, thanks!

     

    It was having trouble looking up URLs...

     

    DNS Servers are a bit like Phone books where you look up a name and it gives you the phone number, in our case, you put in apple.com and it comes back with 17.149.160.49 behind the scenes.  

     

    These Servers have been patched to guard against DNS poisoning, and are faster/more reliable than most ISP's DNS Servers.

    Hello! I am in need of help again. The same thing happened again. check for what you told me last time and still wont pull the address. What could it be this time . ( maybe you have more of those magic numbers from last time)

    Turn off IPv6 and change your DNS servers again to 8.8.8.8

     

    If you have any more problems look up 'flush DNS cache' on Google and do it about once a day.

     

    Restart your Mac at least once a day.

    Restart your Mac at least once a day.

    What is supposed to be accomplished by doing that?

  • 7. Re: cant load some web pages

    What browser are you using and what version? Are you using any extensions with your browser? Do you have anything in Input Menus (might be called Input Methods.) Look in your Home Folder Library and the HD Library for those.

    EDIT: Oh, I see it's Safari. Try Firefox and see if it makes any difference.

     

    http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/

     

    Also try just quitting Safari, clearing the cache and cookies and reopening it. You can always get the cookies back.

    My 733 Mhz G4+ with Leopard is always faster after a restart - perhaps it releases memory, flushes caches and consolidates disk changes. You will see from several posts here that restarts can also cure some glitches.

    Yes I'm well a restart may sometimes cure some minor glitches, and it certainly releases the swap space (although I don't see that, in particular, having anything to do with this issue), but I question your advice to restart daily.

     

    And I question whether a restart has anything to do with solving this problem, which is that some web pages aren't loading. This doesn't sound like a system glitch at all.

    I did , everything you told me but it did not make any difference. Any more ideas?

    You could look at this other recent thread but I doubt that you have the same problem:

     

    https://discussions.apple.com/message/20161334

     

    What have you done to this Mac since it last worked properly?

     

    Can you paste a few URLs that don't work and a few which do?

     

    Do you have virus software or strange firewall settings?

     

    Are Java, JavaScript and cookies enabled?

    I have done nothing special or different, Just normal use everything was working properly althou a little slower than normally work, but working.

    This are some that do not work       autoblog.com         Will pull some of the page after awhile

                                                          yahoo.com            Will pull some of the page after awhile

                                                         aol.com                 will not pull it at all
