The last few days I have noticed that certain webpages are slow to load and then only a text outline appears.  When I open safari, the apple start page loads without graphics and only shows text on the left side of the page. 


I am using OS X and Safari 6.0.5.  I have emptied the cache and reset safari with no luck.  I also made sure that "disable images" was not selected.  This is driving me crazy!  I should mention that some websites load with no problem.  Has anyone experienced this and found a fix?

    Try troubleshooting extensions and third party plugins.


    From the Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Extensions tab. Turn that OFF, quit and relaunch Safari to test. If that helped, turn one extension on then quit and relaunch Safari to test until you find the incompatible extension then click uninstall.


    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.
