Very busy mon here. Lots of page loads, VOIP calls, apps, copying files, config stiff and a bit of dev. The machine is solid. It is "snappy" on page loads.

YES I had this problem for weeks. Blank pages, pages half-loading, youtube videos that don't play and need to reload page for them to play. :(

Not found the solution yet

I think this is a Yosemite problem, not a MacBook specific problem per se. It's appeared from time to time on both of my Macs running Yosemite (MBP & Mac Mini). I do the following to resolve it (from this thread https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6603972):-




From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Privacy tab.

Click: Remove All Website Data

Quit Safari.

Open a Finder window. From the Finder menu bar click Go > Go to Folder

Type or copy paste the following

~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/Cache.db

Click Go then move the Cache.db file to the Trash.

Empty Trash
Relaunch Safari to test.

Sounds like you guys should actually restart your routers / modems and potentially get new DNS settings.

It wasn't a router issue bc this was the only device in my house doing it and it started from the 1st time i turned it on. The above post fixed the problem for myself by clearing all the data from safari in both areas. So thanx for that. It must be something in the 10.10.3 update bc it started when I did that right after I got it set up.
