I am having a problem with Safari where it is unable to completely load pages. This only started a few days ago.


It is able to load Google, but when I try to load Facebook, it stops at 12 of 13 items. Then no other pages will load unless I restart Safari. Sometimes Facebook will load, but I am unable to click on sidebars or any links. This happens with other webpages after 5-10 minutes, but Facebook causes it to happen immediately.


I am using Safari 5.0.6 on Leopard 10.5.8 and am unable to change to Firefox or Chrome. The internet connection works fine. Other computers (non-Macs) work on the wireless connection, and the Macbook I am using is unable to work even on a wired connection. However, I can ftp from a terminal with upload and download speeds of 5+MB/s.


I have already tried the following:

  • Reset Safari
  • Cleared the cache
  • Removed all plugins
  • Added the open DNS connections
  • Turned off the DNS fetching


Is there anything else that anyone can think of to do or has anyone else experienced this problem with Safari?

    Is Flash disabled?

    Safari 5.1.7 for OS X Lion, Safari 5.1.7 for OS X Snow Leopard, and Leopard Security Update 2012-003 disable out-of-date versions of Adobe Flash Player.

If Safari 5.1.7 or Leopard Security Update 2012-003 detects an out-of-date version of Flash Player on your system, you will see a dialog informing you that Flash Player has been disabled. The dialog provides the option to go directly to Adobe's website, where you can download and install an updated version of Flash Player.

    Additional Information

    If you need to re-enable an out-of-date version of Flash Player, you can do the following:

    1. Navigate to the /Library/Internet Plug-Ins (Disabled) folder.
    2. Drag "Flash Player.plugin" into /Library/Internet Plug-Ins.
    3. If the browser is running, quit and restart it.
