Why does Epic keep trying to reload pages?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I've been having a problem with Epic reloading pages 2-4 times when I try to go to a thread.  Sometimes I get a browser error saying that Safari is having problems loading the page.  It's making it really hard to navigate this site.  It's not happening anywhere else.

OS and browser please (what version of Safari)

OS X version 10.6.8, Safari version 5.1.10.   There doesn't seem to be any updates available for OS or browser.

 

Thanks, it is a real PITA.

Can you try it on another browser on your computer?  Perhaps try clearing your cache as well. One thing I will add is that I will try my best to help, but the version of Safari you're using is so old that Apple no longer supports it as of last year. As a result it could be one of the recent security fixes that we've deployed isn't playing nice with your version of Safari but because it's not supported anymore we can't work around those issues. 

 

That said here is a suggestion from Apple Support forums about a similar issue with your browser version:

 

Quote:
 From your Safari menu bar top of your screen click Safari > Empty Cache. Quit then relaunch Safari to test.

 

If that doesn't help, back to the menu bar click Safari > Reset Safari.

 

Select:

 

Clear history

Reset Top Sites

Remove all webpage preview images

Reset all location warnings

Remove all website data

Clear the Downloads list

 

Click Reset

 

Quit and relaunch Safari to test.

 

Let me know if that helps or not. :)

There aren't any updates for OS X 10.6 because that's so far behind the current version.  OS X 10.8 dates from 2013.  The 2014 push is to move people on 10.9.x to Yosemite 10.10.x for free.  The Safari version that goes with OS X 10.9.5 is Safari 7.1 .

@tetonpwdrjunkie you really should try to upgrade for free to Yosemite, as suggested above.   You are not safe browsing the Internet on that version of Safari.  There have been no security updates to your Safari or OS for almost a year now.   IIRC most macs can be upgraded, but there may be some older hardware that can't be upgraded.

 

If you can't upgrade to Yosemite, STOP using that version of Safari!!!  Switch to a current version of Chrome or Firefox, as they are getting security updates.   You'll be relatively safe then, as long as you are behind a firewall you trust, like your home wifi/router.   I wouldn't connect through a public wifi or directly to the internet without a firewall, though.

Agreed with the need to upgrade.  10.6 is Snow Leopard, very old.

10.7 Lion

10.8 Mountain Lion

10.9 Mavericks

10.10  Yosemite

 

 

The oldest any of our computers is running is Lion, only because of some software that requires it.  I've recently upgraded free to Yosemite and like it.  I would not run anything older than Mountain Lion for recreational use.
