I'm calling the cops
I have noticed over the last couple weeks that I always have to go up to the URL bar and do "click+enter" a few times before the site fully loads. Sometimes the site will go halfway and just stop, or just go about an inch(progress bar) and just stop. It always says contacting "insert URL here" at the bottom forever. What could be the problem?

My computer has been going crazy these past couple weeks, so if you can help me out, here are my other threads:

Mate, I have a feeling all these problems are related so it's probably easier if you just stick to the one thread. Hopefully it'll get sorted soon enough. :)

Sure its not some sort of problem with your internet connection?? How exactly do you connect to the internet? Router, Ethernet Modem etc??

Might be worth a refresh of your connection, switch it on/off all that sort of stuff, check through all the settings, maybe a phone to your ISP.

Another easier thing to do would be to test the internet somewhere else, see if you are still having the same problem, then if you are its your mac and if your not then its probably your connection to the internet.
