    I have been trying to get Google to load on my browsers but keep getting the "Problem loading page" message. Some other websites (to name a few) include: ESPN, YouTube, certain parts of Facebook, etc. Other pages like Yahoo, macrumors, and cichlid-forum work fine. This is what I have done so far:

    - I tried to use Firefox, Safari, and Chrome and still can't get these pages to work
    - reset PRAM
    - reset SMC
    - disabled add-ons
    - disabled firewall
    - disabled ipv6
    - cleared cookies
    - cleared cache
    - deleted history
    - verified/repaired disk permissions
    - resetting Firefox (my main browser of choice)
    - updated all my software (security updates, Java, etc.)
    - cleared preferences from Firefox folder
    - tried using a different user account
    - checked DNS info
    - ran browsers in safe mode

    I have an '08 MBP (10.6.8). I can get the pages to load fine when I boot the computer in Safe Mode, any ideas?

    Also, I know the internet connection is not the problem: I am sitting on my Lenovo right next to the Mac and can access everything perfectly fine.
