    Yesterday British Telecom called to say the problem was theirs and not mine. Today they fixed it and now I can access my webmail again.
    It is a pity they messed it up in the first place.
  2. Accessing BT webmail in UK

    I am using a macBook Pro 13 inch retina with Mavericks and Safari 7, all up to date. In the last day or so the BT webmail log in page has failed to render on the screen. It does appear to load, but I...

    What you say is very interesting, especially that it is happening on a later version of OSX, and also a more modern computer. I got no concrete help from the forums.

    My problem is not quite as...

    No devices connected.

    Stooopid of me not to mention that!
  6. Macbook either will not sleep, or wakes up.

    I have had my macBook for a long time now and it has suffered from this problem since it was new. I did have the system board replaced under warranty, but the problem persisted.

    It was only when...

    Thanks for replying.
    I understand a little better the figures I was seeing in the Activity Monitor. Typically 180% of CPU, and 0% idle. These excesses only appear when a Browser is active, either...

    I have been watching the system log each time my problem occurs. What I see every time is:

    My thanks to those who have tried to help me.
    As suggested by BrianLachoreVPI I have done maintenance on the computer by using OnyX.
    Since this is an issue that predated a hard drive...

    Thanks for those bits of advice.

    What really bugs me is that every browser does exactly the same thing, and just as spooky, the browsers move to 100% CPU usage, when they have no windows...

    Thank you for the helpful suggestion.

    It is not so much the actual overheating that is concerning me; more worrying is the fact that browsers that are not actually doing anything, are using 100%...
  14. Borwsers use 100% CPU and this causes overheating

    I am using an early macBook with 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo processsor, with 2GB RAM, and OSX 10.4.11.
    I have posted a couple of times recently about this which occurs with all browsers (Safari and...

    Thanks a lot. I can see some sensible ways forward here. It is too late tonight to do anything, but I will take up at least one of the ideas I see here tomorrow.
  16. CPU usage 100% Firefox and Safari

    I see there is common problem while browsing which I share with my macBook using 0SX 10.4.11. It is all over the Forums, but I have not come across a definitive solution.

    I am browsing, I hear the...
  17. Best iTunes version for OSX 10.4.11

    Following a hard drive crash/replacement I find myself with iTunes 6 installed, and my iPod will not synch with this.

    What would be the best iTunes version to instal so that I can interface...

    On the grounds that I use Firefox as my main browser (although the problem does happen with Safari), I wonder if van's fix covers all the bases?
  19. Browsers use 100% CPU and run hot

    I am using OSX 10.4.11 on a mac book with Safari and Firefox 3.6.17

    Both browsers, on a daily basis, end up using 100% CPU and this naturally makes the computer run hot and engages the fan. I...
