    If you are surfing the net with Safari, try emptying the cache.

     

    Press Command + Option + E on your keyboard. Quit and relaunch Safari to test.

     

    If that doesn't help, try troubleshooting Safari extensions and plug-ins.

     

    From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Extensions tab. Turn that off if there are any installed. Quit and relaunch Safari to test. If that helped, turn extensions back on then uninstall one a time to test.

     

    If it's not an extensions issue, try troubleshooting third party plug-ins.

     

    Back to Safari > Preferences. This time select the Security tab. Deselect:  Allow all other plug-ins. Quit and relaunch Safari to test.

     

    If that made a difference, instructions for troubleshooting plugins here.
