when trying to open ebay.com, i get a 403 forbidden message on firefox or ebay in chinese on safari. it is not a network issue cause i do not have this issue on my pc computer. i am on ebay a lot but cannot work it from my mac, which is annoying. does not do this with other websites'
Hi, I'll be happy to help with this issue
can you let me know what happens if you setup a new user account on the Mac and login as that user?
If you go to Apple menu-->System Preferences-->Accounts
Click on the Padlock to make changes and then the + icon to add the new account
once created, restart and login as the new user and test Ebay
that should indicate where the issue lies
Let me know
ok let me check
sorry, had to log off thn back on
so far works with safari - no text in chinese but downloading now firefox to se if works there too
well, seems you fix it - so my others userrs will stay "infected"?
there may be some corruption of preference files on the other user accounts
I would try a Reset of Safari on the account with an issue to see if that helps?
i see - i ll try that - thanks. at least now i can work :-)
No problem :)
enjoy thanksgiving :-)

and it does it on both - 403 forbidden on safari and ebay in chinese on firefox, both with the new user you made me create
yes, with verizon
