    safari help PLEASE
    My safari browser opens no problem, but when i type in a link, and then wait for it to load, it takes FOREVERRR and its really annoying... the address bar line fills with the blue loading thing about 10% from the left... and it takes literally like 8-10 minutes sometimes.

    It is not the router, internet connection, or my ISP because i have no problems on the other 3 computers in my house...

    please help,

    thanks!

    Hi and welcome to the forums.

    Try this.
    Quit safari
    Open Finder then to Go in the menu bar. Now press Option and you will see yourLibrary appear in the drop down. Now click that and Finder will now show the hidden Library Folder. Goto Preferences and look for or type in the spotlight bar com.apple.safari.plist
    Now drag that to your Desktop.
    Relaunch Safari and a new .plist will be made within the Preferences folder and hopefully that has solved the problem.
    If not Find the new Safari.plist drag it to the trash and replace it with the old one from the desktop.
    Then post back here and we will look into it more.

    HTH

    Cheers
