I'm sorta new here and posed a similar question out of frustration and it's probably been removed. Here's the deal. I use a stock trading program called E*Trade Pro which is a JAVA scripted program you download from E*Trade. Until last Friday there's never been a problem. But over the weekend a new OS upgrade along with supposed 'improvements' to Safari were issued and automatically installed on both an iMac and a MacBook Air (11" w/i7 processor). On Monday (Mar 18, 2013) when I tried to fire up E*Trade Pro it simply woudn't download and open. When I called E*trade tech support and they told me they noticed over the weekend that there were JAVA issues that prevented the new upgrade from properly downloading and loading their software. And the latest JAVA from Oracle didn't help. E*Trade advised me to go to their website to get the trading software via Firefox which I did. And it downloaded and runs no problem.
But it gets worse. Tonight I was on DPreview's photography forums and noticed that now IMAGES won't even load. And when I switched to Firefox to doublecheck, again no problem there.
I've also had crashes which I've never noticed before. And a lot of difficulty loading pages.
I don't mind one issue to have to go around but this is totally unacceptable, Apple! (And it's the sort of thing that will continue to drive their AAPL stock spiraling southward!) Does anyone (including the geniuses in Cupertino!) help me with these issues??? Or at least provide an answer when these issues will quickly be addressed. I've never had an issue with Apple software but seeing so many in such a short period of time is indicative that something is seriously rotten in the land of Cupertino.
