    I'm having a problem to my browser(safari,mozilla) the images were pixelated. And I'm thinking what if I upgrade my mac? Will it be the same?
    Hmm. Any suggestions about my browser problem? I really dunno why it happened. :confused::(

    If all images are pixelated in both Safari and Firefox, sounds like an internet connection problem. Reset your router, and just to see what happens, reset Safari and check again.

    Hmm I'm not using any router. I just used some kind of USB to connect into the internet. I reset safari a while ago. But it's still the same. I'm experiencing this problem for 3days. :(

    What exactly are you using to connect, a USB broadband dongle? Who is your provider and what's the model? Go to speedtest.net and run a test, see what speeds you get.

    So do you think It's just the internet connection who caused the problem?

    it is most likely your internet connection. if you want to make sure connect you macbook to a different network ( i.e some friends wi-fi, public wi-fi or whatever) and if it still doesn't work then do the upgrades.

    Is it just while using internet? If you watch videos or look at pictures, is it pixelated then?

    are you tethered to verizon? They lower the quality of images and video.

    That would be my guess, when I was using T-Mobile in the UK they dithered the images, there was a keystroke combination you could do to reload the page with the graphics at full quality. I'd check your dongle providers site/forum.
