Safari 6.0.4 will not open some sites that it previously opened without issues, such as www.lib.byu.edu and www.seccionamarilla.com.mx, supposedly because of too many redirects. It appears that Safari is cycling back and forth between the address as I entered it and the address of the redirect. Neither resetting Safari nor removing all cookies resolved the issue after various tries, despite these being the instructions to resolve the issue when I searched the Apple Support Communities. I am still able to open pages at www.seccionamarill.com.mx that I have saved in my Bookmarks, but I am not able to navigate the site to conduct new searches. I do not think that a university's library website should have issues with Safari. I think the problem is that the version of Safari that I have on my computer has been corrupted by malware or a virus.
Also, pop-ups now show in Safari despite still being blocked according to the preferences in Safari.
When I try to log in to Apple Support Communities via Safari, the website will not let me log in with my Apple ID, such that I can not post a question to ask for help.
I am able to use Google Chrome without issues to enter the websites that I named, and I have to use Google Chrome right now to be able to post this question in Apple Support Communities.
Updating my system via the Apple App Store has not helped.
Restarting my computer has not helped.
Updating my antivirus software (Trend Micro Titanium) and scanning my hard drive has not helped, because no problems have been detected.
The problem with being unable to open websites because of too many redirects began for the first time on Saturday, May 4, 2013 after I had been searching for cake recipes at websites that included blogs. While I was looking for recipes, I noticed that pop-ups were suddenly appearing when I was at such sites. I clicked on the "x" at the corners of the pop-ups to close them.
I am concerned that I have inadvertently downloaded some sort of malware via the cooking blogs.
