Question about Apple safari

1 Answer

Connectivity problems after Safari update.

I recently updated Safari on my iBook G4 and ever since have had problems connecting to the Internet. Most pages load okay but as soon as I try to navigate away from the page, I get a messge telling me that I am not connected to the Internet. Restarting my modem fixes the problem, but only until I click on something else (a link etc.) The connection wizard is of no help because as soon as I restart the modem the problem is fixed (although very temporarily.) Any help would be gratfully appreciated.

If you have another MAC computer available, you can create a USB key to solve this problem:

If not, I'm afraid you will have to turn to an authorized apple service center. They will do the repair for you.

Safari can not open the page because the address is invalid

This problem is either the unit is losing connectivity to the internet or the web address is being typed wrong. Losing connectivity could be caused by a number of issues, including viruses (yes, an Ipod CAN get a virus as can anything that connects to the internet).

If you are sure your internet connection is good becuase you can go to other websites, try plugging the Ipod into a computer with ITunes and doing a system update. That should resolve any issues.

The update has been either the wrong one for your system (apparently you have tried an update designed for a much newer version of OSX than what you have) or the update process was flawed for some reason.
Try to remove the update. If that fails then the only thing left is a complete reinstall - try to save your files wile you still can.

Not sure what is going on with safari but what I would suggest is reseating your RAM on your ibook, it may have come loose. to do this have a look at it is fairly easy to do. You will at the same time as reseating the RAM you will have to remove the airport card and replace it in the same slot, this may sort the safari problem. Have you tried using another browser such as firefox. Hope this helps in some way.

It sounds like your directory is corrupt, you need a 3rd party utility like DiskWarrior by prosoft. You boot from their disk, then run the program and it will write a new directory and you reboot and off you go, When you do updates do not do anything else as in rare cases it corrupts the hard drive, Apple stop you doing that at all in 10.5.

Connection problems w/ a iBook

You can download updates directly from the Apple website via you're browser. When the update is installed Software Update should work again. Check that you are up to date with any Java updates as this would stop some websites functioning properly.

Apple iBook G4 Track Pad (Mouse) not funtioning

I think the first thing you should do is make all updates. I know that in some versions of the iBook G4, the trackpad does not work after installing OS X 10.4 (Tiger) before you do the updates. Update your OS X first. secondly, does the button work? Does the trackpad show up in the System Preferences menu? (under keyboard and mouse). It's very unlikely that the trackpad came unhooked unless someone has opened up your computer. If they have, there is a really good chance that they didn't plug it back in, because it's a hassle and easy to forget.

Safari keeps crashing

If Safari does not crash when you have no Internet connection. Try this - change the default web page to Google - it may just be a problem with the website that initially loads.
