    Ever since I switched to verizon DSL, Safari will not load some web pages (ESPN.com for example). So I've switched to Camino... which is Ok... but I like Safari better.

    It's weird, because Safari could see these pages on my old service, and Camino can see them fine now, so it's not strictly a safari issue, and it's not strictly a Verizon issue. Anyone have any idea what's going on? :confused:

    Verizon DSL online is my ISP as well and I have no problems accessing espn or any other sites. What kind of issue are you having with the site?
    Does the page not display at all or is it a specific aspect of the site that is not working properly?

    save your book marks and delete your safari .plst. also make sure you have your safari preferences set up for handling special content like java and cookies. it cant hurt to repair permissions either.

    One thing that's always worth trying when Safari won't load pages is to reset it. Go into the Safari menu, choose Reset Safari..., and confirm that you really want to do this. Also, deleting ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist (the .plst beatle888 was referring to) might help.
