    Enjoying my new MacBook but hit upon a weird problem.

    When I try to go on the UK Apple Store it is painfully slow, I get a beach ball for about 5 minutes per click and sometimes causes Firefox to force quit. Similar problems with Safari.

    (I clicked on a link before writing this post, still spinning....)

    Every other website (including MR) is fine. I've tried it wireless and with ethernet, and I can get into the Apple Store fine from work or my old G3 iMac.

    Any ideas?


    Oh, and if anybody knows where the Delete button is (not the backspace) could you let me know where it is?

    Cheers.

    Delete button is the one next to the "+/=" key.

    Apple Store UK works fine for me.

    The Delete button is the same as the Backspace button. To use the 'forward; delete function, press Fn + Delete (or get an input remapper).

    Also, Apple UK Online store works fine for me.

    I see you got your new SR MacBook today. How is the Apple Store on it?

    I tried changing my firewall to accept all incoming but still makes no difference.

    On all computers that I've used, the UK Apple Store has been slow and causes occasional crashes.
    You woulda thought that they would of got it to work well with their own browser ;)
