    My macbook is just over three months old, the other day my wireless internet connection cut out on it, but soon came back. Since then Safari is moving very slowly, every other page fails to load or will take up to a minute. To login to a page such as email or facebook is nearly impossible. When i have a page that will not load, the blue status in the url box usually doesnt go past the // in the http://, and it almost never fully reaches the end of the box
    Ive tried resetting safari and emptying the cache and it didnt help. I also contacted Comcast to see if it was a connection issue, but they found no problems.

    Im not very tech savy, so any help (in laymen's terms) would be much appreciated

    safari does not load all the elements of a page if it is on https and you have not said that you trust the certificate that is being used. There will be a window asking you about the certificate and if you want to make things easy on yourself you should set it to always trust and then reload the page. You should see the page fine now. If however you are indeed using http and having a problem with loading pages then there is not configuration problem. Create a test account and try loading the page in it. If things work then search google for reseting safari's configuration.

    I hope this helps.

    It might help but, try this:
    1. Download OnyX (a free maintenance utility).

    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, 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 are done. THEN REBOOT.

    thanks for you help. The Onyx clean helped at first, but now its back to how it was.
    I tried creating a new account before doing that. And the internet was much better then the one on my main account. However, now its just as slow and will not login to pages either. I've also noticed that i cant watch videos clearly, they jump like every 2 seconds even when fully loaded.

    I want to try and reconfigure Safari's settings, but dont know how. So if any of you could help me with that, or have anymore ideas on how to fix my Safari i would be really grateful
