Thread: Safari Not Playing Nice Today
12-21-2005, 08:39 PM #1Safari Not Playing Nice Today
Sorry if this was covered (I couldn't find it).
When trying to open secure websites, I get the following page:
Safari can’t open the page.
Safari can’t open the page “https://www.mac.com/WebObjects/HomePage.woa.........” because it couldn’t establish a secure connection to the server “www.mac.com”.
I emptied the cache but to no avail. Any help is appreciated.

Maybe the problem is the quotation marks? :cool:

It's any secured site.

I've occasionally had this and it's been solved by exiting Safari altogether and going in again. Might not work for you, but worth a try if you've not already.
Sounds a bit Windows-esque, doesn't it?

Very windowesque indeed!
Here is what I have done so far:
emptied the cache (2 times)
deleted safari.plist (3 times)
Installed Firefox (guess what no issue trying to access secured sites)
So the issue is kinda fixed on the webpage side but I receive an error when trying to use Mail to access my gmail account and I'm unable to sync with my .Mac account.

Could be your using a proxy

I downloaded a proxy server program called netshade and ever since i've been using that the same thing is happening to my safari browser. However when im not using the proxy server and am connected directly I can use the browser. Check to see if your behind a proxy.

Don't have my Powerbook with me but if memory serves (it might not as I was up until 1 am trying to correct the issue) that I have no proxy buttons checked in my Network or Safari preferences.

I broke down and called AppleCare... First 36 minutes talking to the support guy didn't get anything done except for me telling them that I didn't believe re-installing Safari would correct the iSync and Mail issue also.
Oh, I didn't mention above that at the same time as the Safari issue came about I was unable to access my Gmail account using Mail or iSync to sync with my .Mac account.
Later that day.....
I was transfered to another person who spent the next hour and ten minutes troubleshooting my unusual problem. Her name was Wendy. Wendy was very nice and tried to help but need to enlist her cube neighbors for advice.
Solution after 1 hour and 46 minutes I was instructed to Archive and Re-install OS X. Wendy told me how to do it and what to expect and asked me to install all updates then try to recreate the error.
After another 40 minutes or so I reinstalled OS X and updated with the couple of patches and..... <insert victorious SuperHero music here> ISSUE RESOLVED!
Both "specialists" were nice and attitude wise they both get an "A rating". The first person said that I won issue of the day!
I do have to give props to OS X for easily allowing you to re-install the OS and maintain all programs and settings. All in all, this experience has been eductional about OS X troubleshooting techniques.
