OK, I am a new Mac user so please be patient! Over the weekend, upon restarting my Mac (multiple times), when I open Safari - it will not load any webpages. In the address box, the blue line will go all the way to http: - and then it just stops! Later a timeout message will appear! I have contacted my internet provider and the connection is fine! We have completely troubleshooted and reset the modem, and it is fine too! So the connection is fine, I just cannot get to the internet. I've tried a variety of things such as resetting Safari, cleaning my cache, checking the cables, etc. Someone had mentioned it could do with the firewall, etc. Before doing anything I wanted to post it to the knowledgeable ones in the forum. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!
