- Can someone who knows how to do computers (Apple) solve this?
Think it’s an Apple. It’s got a picture of a bitten apple on it? And it’s shiny.
Safari Version 3.2.1. Leopard rings a bell too. Done an update, something’s downloading now. I’ll see how that goes then try the other things if that doesn’t work.
It’s just Safari that does it, everything else has always worked fine. Is Firefox good on Macs then, better than Safari?

Ah, I’ve had this, with Safari. Guess which website causes the problem???
S’true. Every time I tried to get onto STW, after a minute or two, I just get the spinning beachball thing. Safari works fine, on every other website. So, I’m imagining a conflict between STW and my version of Safari. I’ve tried deleting the .plist, but this does not in any way make any difference.
I dunno. I use Firefox now, which is not as good as Safari, but works with STW.
I must point out, STW is the ONLY site that screws up Safari….
PS: You don’t need to shut the whole computer down. You can Force Quit Safari.

You sure it’s not just the (buggy) version of Flash which is shipped from the factory?
Install the latest version of Flash OSX from Adobe’s website and see if it starts magically working (damned flash ads!)
Try downloading Safari 4 beta. No STW issues with that version.
No STW issues with Safari 3 either, it’s something else.Posted 8 years ago
After about ten minutes on the internet using Safari it just freezes, no pages will load and I can only get going again by restarting the computer. Any ideas? I have bothered to look on Mac forums etc but none of the suggestions I have found seem to work.
Thanks in anticipation.Posted 8 years agoGrahamSSubscriber
While you’re at it have a read of Clean Up and Revive Your Bloated, Sluggish Mac (LifeHacker) which will gives various bits of advice for getting your Mac running fast again.
And the latest OSX service pack (v10.5.7) is also out now.

Inertesting. Anyone else experiencing this problem? A couple of mates what do web stuff reckon it’s some bad code or something in STW’s site, that is conflicting with the Safari application’s method of translating data, or something technical, but to be honest, I was not really paying attention.

Interesting problem this, because I get exactly the same symptoms with a PC – Vista and Firefox. After a while it won’t connect to websites (blue doughnut of death). If I close FF and start IE8 it has the same probs but I CAN ping websites. I have to reboot the PC, which takes a loooong time to shut down.Posted 8 years agoBeagleboySubscriber
Oooh, this is interesting. My Mac is running OS 10.4, is that Tiger? I’d stopped using Safari 3.2 because it would hang up, but I couldn’t find anything on t’interweb to explain why.
If there’s a new upgrade for 3.2, maybe I can get back to using it again because it’s waaaay faster than Firefox when it works. 😛Posted 8 years agosamuriMember
you’re doing something wrong.
macs just work.
which to be honest is my experience with all computers (MACs, PC’s, Linux etc. etc). If it cocks up, 99% of the time it’s user error. They’ll huff and puff for a day or so about how crap PC’s are and their wife’s MAC is frigging ace before finally admitting that a support guy gave them admin rights and they installed a golf program from that nice warez site but it can’t be that because they installed it right.Posted 8 years ago
