    I keep getting the spinning wheel when viewing MySpace pages or YouTube. It's intermittent - sometimes it all works perfectly well. Safari and Firefox both have trouble at the same time.

    I have to Force Quit the browser.

    My Mac is Intel Mac Pro 8 core. Loads of RAM.

    I repair disk permissions in case that has something to do with it, but nothing improves.

    Anyone any ideas?

    I tried updating/reinstalling FlashPlayer, but same problem persists.

    Disk permissions, every time I go to repair them, always need a repair - about 30 items 'differ'. Should I be worried ? is that related?

    Hm, I actually also get the same problem on my previous gen. MBP, esp. with the pages that require a lot of loading (or if I open like 15 tabs) - sometimes the beach ball appears and the entire site freezes, yet sometimes it only appears for 3-5 secs and loads fine after that.

    I've also been wondering wtf is up with that, didn't expect it on a Mac!!
