for some reason whenever i try to load ebay, or yahoo or several other sites with safari they all come up as if the pictures are unable to load. Ive tried deleting cookies and other basic stuff that probly doesn't actually have an effect on this problem. Has anyone else had problems like this with safari, or know how to fix them?

Not a hardware issue.

Open Safari's Preferences and the Appearance tab. Make SURE "Display Images when page opens" is checked. Not sure if that is the problem but pictures will not load if that is not checked. If yours is, how is your computer connected to the net? DSL? Cable? Do you have a router?

Hmmmm.... try to load those images by themselves. Not in a web page. Also try the same tests in a different browser.
It could be that something is blocking the image servers.

Have you tried an alternative browser like Firefox or Opera, just to eliminate your router/firewall as the cause?

I don't wasnt to try and convert you, but I have tried Safari many times and really wan to love it, but almost every time I use it, something odd happens so I end up back with FF.
