    I'm getting an insane amount of freezes using Safari and Firefox. I'm running all the latest versions on a MBP with Leopard. I'm thinking that it must be my internet connection at work, but what's happening is that certain pages, like, iGoogle home page for instance, will load 75-80%, and then just stop loading and freeze up, needing to be forced quit.

    Any suggestions? Could this just be a bad internet connection?

    That sounds like your internet connection. Are you connecting through a wireless router? If so, unplug it from the wall for a few minutes and then power it back up. My MacBook does this sometimes. It seems to be my cheap router.

    I'm having this exact same problem. Extremely annoying... Guess I'll try to unplug the wireless router.

    I've been having more problems with Mail lately than anything else. Freezing, shutting-down, etc. Very odd. :apple:
