    I was using a program that was chewing up all my bandwidth. When I went to facebook it started displaying barebones text and links. However, no matter what I do (even with full bandwidth) I can't seem to get it back in Safari. In Firefox it works fine. I've emptied cache and deleted all the FB cookies.

    Anyone know why this is happening and what I can do about it?

    I'm attaching a pic of what it looks like.

    It is well-known that Facebook webpages wreck havoc with standards-compliant browsers. If Firefox works for you, then use it and get on with your life.

    Yeah but FB has worked fine on my Safari for quite a while now. Why would it suddenly not work. It must have something to do with me accessing it under such low bandwidth speeds. Maybe the site switched to low-bandwidth mode or something and won't switch back.

    Safari Cookies

    Just go into Preferences - - Security - -

    Down to the

    "Accept Cookies" Section

    Pick "ALWAYS" - - - -

    This solved the my FB Issues.

    [Hopefully this will work]

    i would click and hold safari on the dock and click ... i forgot, you know to shut down that app. Where the little black triangle (tiger) or lighted circle (leopard) is lit and then once the app is closed open it again and try going to the same page.

    If that doesn't work, maybe your using to much of your memory (possibly could happen) and a restart of the computer will do it.

    If that doesn't do it, check other web pages that has to load a lot of things in, like or something like that, myspace, who knows. If you get the same thing then maybe it's your internet connection speed and if you have a router, maybe all your resources are being used up and it takes a long ass time to load pages hence you getting that screen.

    If that doesn't happen, type in mozilla firefox in google and download firefox and forget all your problems.
