    hi slydude

    well I tried what you said but still the issue persists lol.



    maybe its best for now that I go back to osx 10.13.6 that way its all stable still updated and still current my MacBook Pro is on 10.14 so its not the end of the world for now.

    thanks

    I'll try to do some testing this weekend with Mojave on my MacBook Pro and the browser to see if I get similar results. Are specific sites /pages affected or does it seem to be most sites?

    it seems to be all sites for me unless I did something wrong during the install.

    but so far I'm still on OSX 10.14 but as its running slow on the internet I'm using my MacBook Pro more than ever.

    I have the following in the iMac I7-870 2.93ghz 32GB DDR3 ram 500GB SSD

    so I doubt its them things causing it ???

    or could it be ?


    as under high Sierra it plays very well and the internet is speedy lol

    I had just a little bit of time today to test Safari on my 2008 MacBook Pro, with 8 GB ram, and a Crucial SSDrunning Mojave. Although I've only tried about a dozen or so sites so far, I've not noticed any issues loading sites. Maybe the sites load a tad slower than on more modern machines but not enough to be noticeable. Safari did provide a warning that a couple of out-of-date extensions had been disabled.

    A few other observations based upon an hour or so of run time:
    1. I installed Mojave over an existing El Capitain installation. The SSD was formatted as HFS+ with a GUID partition structure and the Mojave installer left that intact. I'm not sure whether a clean install would format the drive as APFS plus but I suspect it would.

    2. Running on the SSD I can get from cold boot to the login screen in about 1 minute give or take about three seconds.

    3. After entering my administrator password I can get from the login screen to the desktop in 15 to 20 seconds. The last five seconds are for a few menu bar items I'll probably remove.

    Was that due to the "hack install" you used as I understood that Mojove insists on an APFS format install.

    Or am I misunderstanding something???

    I need to investigate that a bit more. It's possible that this is a result of the hack but I had a different suspicion. The drive originally had El Capitan on it (HFS+) and I did an upgrade install rather than clean install. I think that's the reason the formatting was left untouched. I suspect that if I had done a clean insntallation the drive could have been converted to APFS.

    I've got an extra day off from work coming up this weekend. I may try a clean install just for the heck of it and see what happens.

    I thought I read somewhere that the hack to install Mojave on unsupported Macs also got around the APFS formatting? Or is that a different hack? I believe it was mentioned in threads that are on MacRumors.

    Is it possible to install Mojave and keep HFS+ ?

    Thanks Patrick. That's the thread I remember seeing on MacRumors.

    Obviously I've got some work to do on this issue. The extent of my knowledge at this point is limited to what I covered in the process I outlined in the first post. I'll do some more digging into this to see if I can clarify things a bit.
