ALL my browsers keep crashing.

I have tried 3 of them. Firefox, Flock and Safari. All seem to crash after 3 minutes or so but can last up to 10. It started happening when i was watching some videos on Youtube and then when i went to go and watch another it wouldnt load it up. And since then i have came across this problem. I tried phoning Apple but at 35 just to fix this seems a bit steep

So does anyone have any ideas?

From what i understand, those apps dont "crash", its just that the pages wont load.. right? This can be related with your internet settings (proxy etc), but if those apps do actually crash, its very very confusing that all 3 browsers crash, and this could be related with other factors. So, explain a little bit better so we can help

Two things, if the pages aren't loading - as opposed to the apps crashing:
Do you use torrents / other mass downloading? Some Internet Providers will slow down your connection if you do.

Try OpenDNS and see if it helps (it did for me)

Yea, they do crash sorry its just i noticed that with video's not loading on youtube. The whole page will load bar the video.

When i say crash it will come up with "Flock, Firefox, Safari has unexpectedly crashed" then gives you the option to report or ignore.

Tbh i really have no idea whats causing these crashes. And is getting quite frustrating ^^

Note** Pages load fine Just any pages with a youtube video will load everything else except the video.
