Hello everyone

I bought a Mac Book Pro about 1.5 years ago. So far I have never had any trouble with it. Recently however I have been having some problems with Safari. First of all I very often have problems opening links. Especially from google. Whenever I do a search I get the results, but then when I go to click the link, it won't open the link, but rather I get the message that the site can not be opened because safari can not find the server. I then try to copy and paste the link to a new safari window, but I get the same message. This then happens for pretty much every link. Five minutes later it's fine again, but then when I go to open it a bit later, it won't work. I did not install any new software and also have not changed any settings. I have already tried deleting the Safari preference file in my library, but it didn't help either. Cookies are enabled for sites that I visit. I also have another problem, which turned up at the same time. Quite often when I go to a website recently, it will not show me any images on the site. All I get is either a blank where the image should be or the blue question mark. I checked that Display images when page opens is on in my preferences. I tried another browser (firefox), but I have the same problem there. Sometimes it works, sometimes it won't.
Does anyone know what the problem could be? I am very thankful for any help.

What's your OS version?

What version of Safari are you using?

This doesn't sound like a Safari problem but more like DNS errors. (web site names not getting resolved)

Probably a good idea to check with your ISP first to see if anything has changed or something they may have done. If your ISP is no help, you might think about switching your DNS addresses to either the free Google DNS or Open DNS.

You didn't mention if you're using a router.... sometimes resetting or rebooting the router can help.
