With the actual sites

Jason :

It seems your issue is with safari web browser. So please reset safari and check the result.

  1. Open your Safari web browser by clicking on the Safari icon in the dock.
  2. Click on Safari in your Safari menu, located at the top of your screen.
  3. A drop-down menu will now appear. Choose the option labeled Reset Safari....
  4. A warning dialog will now appear detailing the items that will be removed.
  5. Click the button on the dialog labeled Reset to complete the process.
  6. Your Safari browser will now restart automatically.

Now try to access facebook and youtube websites and let me know the result. If it not helps, click here and download firefox web browser. Install it on your system and access the site with firefox.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
