    Is anyone else having a problem with safari? I cant get it to work.. i even reset it a few times.. the application will load and no pages will open up.. Meanwhile chrome is working without a hitch.. Granted i have an older mac,, i'm running snow leopard and have safari version 5.1.10, any ideas on what i should do?

    What exactly do you mean by pages won't open? Are you getting an error message? Ss there anything in the address bar?

    Extra information would be very beneficial in diagnosing the problem.

    the safari application will launch from the dock like normal.. the address bar will seem like the page is loading and either they do load 10 minutes later ( not and exaggeration ) or the page times out.. but on google chrome pages are opening fine.. i even shut down chrome thinking it was too many browsers being used at one time..

    That's certainly peculiar. Are you running any extensions in Safari? If so, what happens when you turn them off?

    I'll offer a suggestion, you may or may not wish to try it.

    After you get Safari started, go to the Safari Preferences/General, and set things this way:
    Safari opens with "a new window"
    New windows open with "empty page"
    New tabs open with "empty page"
    Homepage = nothing in this field at all

    Now, quit Safari and restart.

    Any better?

    Not really peculiar. I have the same OS, the same Safari, and the same issues.

    Darn! I don't like two out of the four, but the other two are what I have set. And I had to copy and paste, because the "multi-quote" buttons are not working tonight.

    Peculiar from my experiences. I've never seen Safari act like it doesn't have a connection when the computer obviously does.
