I am having real problems with Safari and Google maps. Firefox loads Google Maps fine, but Safari will not work in certain zoom modes (particularly when viewing the whole of the UK). See image below for explanation.

I have deleted all the library files, cleared the Safari cache and cookies, to no avail.

Any ideas?

Looks like a problem with your internet rather than Safari (you can clearly see the page hasn't finished loading). Curious that it works in Firefox though. No problems here with Safari 3.

I doubt it is the internet, as Exeter is shown in the middle of the sea!

I have now resolved this problem. Apparently it is not uncommon for Google maps to cause a "SYN Flood to Host" error with your Router which results in your router denying you access to certain Google Maps image servers.

This can be solved by changing the firewall settings on your router.

Hello everyone...

How exactly did you fix this problem? I just found it today. 1/17/08

It used to work just fine. I restarted the router, and now i can't see the maps. ONLY in Safari?! It works on everything else.

I'm at a lost...

Log onto your router and change the firewall settings from say "high" to "medium". Depends what router you've got though. And also depends if you've got the same problem!!

It's a weird problem I noticed it after yesterday's OS update.
If you goto the page directly with the google map on it it doesnt load. But if your on another page then navigate to that google maps page within the same site, it works...

weird.

I don't have 'medium' or 'high' settings on my router but i'll have a look.

Same Maps Issue on Safari

I have the same issue on Safari, and actually on firefox. It's not the internet connection, a PC has no issue loading, I've seen that quite a few people have this problem with maps and Safari. I think it has to do with the fact that Safari sucks.

Hi ..

I found the solution for this.
There are so many JS files including in my page. From one of the javascript "lightwindow.js" which applying 0.7 opacity to the lightwindow overlay div.

So i have changed the 0.7 to 0.0. Problem solved.

Now the map is printing fine.

Thanks for the response..
