    Hello!

    I've got a problem... Hence me posting on this forum. :D

    Safari is running very, very slow.

    (I have a black macbook... 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4 GB of ram...and ran a software update recently)

    Firefox runs super fast...and I know it's not my internet connection.

    I tried resetting Safari...but no luck.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks a bunch,
    - GC :apple:

    Try This:
    1. Download OnyX (a free maintenance utility).

    10.6 Snow Leopard Link:

    10.5 Leopard Link:
    http://pagesperso-orange.fr/joel.barriere/dl/105/OnyX.dmg

    10.4 Tiger Link:
    http://www.titanium.free.fr/dl/104/OnyX.dmg

    2. Open OnyX and Click Cancel on these two Alert Panels:
    -Cancel the S.M.A.R.T. Box
    -Cancel the Startup Volume Box

    3. Enter your Password

    4. Click on the Cleaning Tab

    5. In each tab, within the Cleaning Tab, execute the command. Check all the boxes in each tab. When its finished in that tab, it will ask you to reboot. Say NO. Go on to the next tab and repeat until all tabs, within the Cleaning Tab, are done. THEN REBOOT.

    Wow I cannot believe that I didn't notice that! I thought it said 10.6 or earlier but it says later. I even typed later in my previous post.

    You don't have to update if you don't want to!
