    Hi fellow macbook pro owners, I was wondering if any of you guys experienced slow browsing speeds on both firefox and safari lately? It's really starting to annoy me. :mad: Any explanations would really be helpful.

    If is happening in both browsers it's probably your internet connection, not the computer.

    I thought so too, but I went and tested my connection and it's showing a good 19Kbps down and 7 up. Would it still be my internet connection that's at fault?

    I've cleared my cache on both browsers and even restarted safari. There's still a problem. I've noticed that on safari, it takes around 20 seconds for all of the pictures on a website to appear.

    I have the same problem.

    For me, when I first turn on my MBP, I get MEGA lag for the first 5min.

    My internet connection is 10Mb/sec down and I'm using ethernet btw.

    There's your problem right there! You are on a connection slower then dial up! :p
    Ok I realize that's probably a typo... well I hope so! lol

    Go read the post at, http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=9940844, it has improved my speed with Firefox as well as Safari. However, safari is still a tad slower than it had been.

    try visiting a website using it’s IP address (open the terminal and type “ping http://urlofsomewebsite.com” ) then you’ll see the IP paste that into the browser. See if it’s any faster.

    If it is the problem is with the DNS. For some reason I have these issues every once and a while.
