Can not download with any browser

I recently updated my OS 10.4.7 to 10.4.11, not that that is the problem. But a couple of days ago I noticed I couldn't download software and I also can not open pdfs as I usually do. I have three browsers. The now defunct Netscape 7.1, I use for my mail til I can get SeaMonkey. Firefox 1.0.7 and Safari 3.0.4. I tried to download SeaMonkey (23mg). Netscape: error message saying "System/library/filesystems etc. ..could not be saved because the source file could not be read. Try again later or contact the server administrator. (I have no server and later never cured it).
Firefox: Its download strip runs quickly,like a split second and there's nothing downloaded.
Safari: It shows in the download window, when I click the curled arrow icon it runs a split second and then says "8.1 kb of 23 mgs; can not create file". Download manager confirms these attempts failed.
I am also experiencing pdfs sent to me will not open.I found a workaround but the issue now exists.
Oddly, I still have a G3 with 10.2.8 and my original Netscape 7.1 still on it. Last night I reconnected to that computer and using Netscape there I was able to downloaded SeaMonkey with no problem whatsoever.
Its not my browsers. I have run repairs on my permissions using disk utility. Do I need to reinstall 10.4? Do I need to throw away some plists?
Thanks for any help, if this doesn't work, I'll go back to 10.4.7 and stay there.

Hi Both Helpful folks,
Here's the latest. Ben, working in an account that's clean is what I'll use. I moved my Netscape and Firefox to this account and downloaded SeaMonkey no problem. Then chose my profile (incase there was a problem there), again downloaded with no problem.
Conclusion: its not the browsers. Something is keeping them from downloading on my other account.
Plan is to take app;ications and move them over as if starting from the beginning. It will be tedious because I will take only one at a time. I'll start with the Adobe Reader 7 since they had problems following my preferences and would not open pdfs in Adobe. Maybe its corrupted, etc, etc.
Ques:
I wonder if either of you or anyone else has an suggestions on what I can test first that may cause this issue to save some time, likely culprits. If not, I'll keep doing this.
Remember Norton Utilities and Disk Doctor? What software is out there that I can use like that that can find and clean corrupted files on Tiger?
Thanks
Lymeris

This happened to me a few times before and resolved alone, but last time it happened was when i turned off my router and back on while my comp was running and appeared when i tried opening firefox after that. so wat i did was i shutdown the computer and the router and tried turning both on again, and it resolved.
    Therefore, Summary: Shutdown computer then turnoff router then turn both back on

  • Specific Content Will Not Load With Any Browser

    This is something I have never run into and can't solve...
    I have a D-Link DPR-1260 wireless multi-function print server. My machines are a MacBook Pro with 10.5.1, an iBook G4 with 10.5, a Mac Mini with 10.4.11, and a Mac Mini with 10.4.10.
    Connecting to the printer via LPD is a non-issue and works fine with all the machines.
    The strange problem occurs when accessing the web based services of the DPR-1260. Scanning, even using Windows, is not supported by the MFP software (Epson) but is done via the browser. Also network settings, etc.
    The good (normal): Using a machine running 10.4.11 or 10.4.10 all the web content loads and works fine using any Safari, FireFox, Camino, or Opera. Even using the beloved IE 5.2.3 everything works but the Scan page. Ditto for Win XP SP2 using IE 7 or FireFox and running under Parallels or booting directly in on the MBP.
    The bad (weird): On either the MBP running 10.5.1 or iBook running 10.5 only the "simple" pages will load using ANY browser. I don't normally do all caps for emphasis, but I have never seen an issue like this. I cannot access the Scan, Advanced (settings), or Setup (more settings) pages. Even the simple login page only works on occasion.
    This certainly appears to be related to OS X 10.5 but I cannot figure out how.
    For reference, I have tried every conceivable combination of browser, wired vs. wireless connection to the unit, disabled firewall, disabled LittleSnitch, watched traffic using tcpdump, and looked for odd ports on the print server using nmap.
    Given that them problem occurs using WebKit browsers and browsers not using WebKit, and that it works properly using 10.4.* with any browser, I assuming this is some sort of system level problem.
    I can provide even more details, but this post is getting too long. If you think you can help and have any questions please ask.
    Please, any help is much appreciated!

    Yes.
    As I see it, it's clearly not a JS implementation issue as not all these browsers handle JavaScript identically (although as a web developer I wish they did). Obviously Safari and Shiira, the two WebKit based browsers, handle it the same, Opera, FireFox, Camino, iCab, and IE 5.2.3 have different implementations.

  • Flash not working with any browser after update

    After an update, flash videos will not stream in any browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari). I did a clean install of flash and the browsers, but to no avail. Mac 10.10.2. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Sadly doing that did not fix my problem either.     I just tried doing that and uninstalling flash player, rebooting and then reinstalling flash and I am still having the same problem as I stated here.   http://forums.adobe.com/message/4014843#4014843
    I have checked that flash is enabled
    Unchecked hardware accerleration
    Set in the internet options to use software rendering
    Tried updating my drivers (it tells me my drivers are up to date, in any case I have only had this laptop since July)
    I even tried deleting cookies, though I use IE9 instead of firefox so I just deleted them all instead of just the one for youtube, I honestly can not find the folder for cookies anyway with this windows 7 and how it is set up to try and delete the one cookie.
    I am really at a loss as to what to do.

  • Updated to firefox 4, and suddenly can't connect with any browser though I am connected. Error message reads "could not read chrome manifest file."

    i updated firefox and now I can't access the net on any browser. Wireless router everything is connected and up and running. Just not the browsers. uninstalled it, reinstalled it (didn't work), unistalled it again and internet explorer won't work either (not at anypoint after intial update was run. read several peoples simalr problems with the "could not read chrome manifest file" issue and solutions to no avail. uninstall and system restore did not work either. What did it change on my system, and how can I change it back?

    Do a clean (re-)install:
    Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.
    * Firefox 4.0.x: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html
    * Uninstall your current Firefox version and remove the Firefox program folder before installing that copy of the Firefox installer.
    * Do not remove personal data if you uninstall the current version.
    * It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.
    * It may not be necessary to create a new profile, so first try if it works with your current profile and if not then create a new profile.
    Your bookmarks and other profile data are stored elsewhere in the [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox Firefox Profile Folder] and won't be affected by a reinstall, but make sure that you do not select to remove personal data if you uninstall Firefox.

  • SOME images not downloading on ANY iPod Touch browser

    SOME images from SOME websites are not downloading on ANY browser my iPod has on ANY wireless network.
    I have an 8gb iPod Touch 2nd gen, and iTunes 9.1.
    I went to vector.tutsplus.com to read some articles like I usually do and most of the images were loading except the images that are actually in the article inline. I figured it was just a safari glitch so I opened up my Opera browser for iPhone. I still couldn't see the images, so I figured it was just my Internet connection. I hopped onto another Wifi connection in my neighborhood and went to the website but the images would STILL not load. They load fine on my computer. Other resides are doing the same thing. It's really hard to read tutorials and articles on graphics design when I can't see images.

    I tried pinging some hosts of the images that won't load on my PC here at the office and I can ping the servers with no problem.
    When I ping the same servers on my Mac through Terminal, I get "ping: sendto: No route to host"

  • Can't connect to websites with any browser. Bookmarks do not work but bookmarks  through bookmarks edit works just fine.

    Can't connect to websites with any browser. Bookmarks do not work but bookmarks  through bookmarks edit works just fine.

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a test, not a solution. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    Step 1
    The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is localized to your user account.
    Enable guest logins* and log in as Guest. Don't use the Safari-only “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac.”
    While logged in as Guest, you won’t have access to any of your documents or settings. Applications will behave as if you were running them for the first time. Don’t be alarmed by this behavior; it’s normal. If you need any passwords or other personal data in order to complete the test, memorize, print, or write them down before you begin.
    Test while logged in as Guest. Same problem?
    After testing, log out of the guest account and, in your own account, disable it if you wish. Any files you created in the guest account will be deleted automatically when you log out of it.
    *Note: If you’ve activated “Find My Mac” or FileVault, then you can’t enable the Guest account. The “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac” is not the same. Create a new account in which to test, and delete it, including its home folder, after testing.
    Step 2
    The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
    Please take this step regardless of the results of Step 1.
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards, if applicable. Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you turn on the computer, and again when you log in.
    Note: If FileVault is enabled in OS X 10.9 or earlier, or if a firmware password is set, or if the startup volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to start up and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal startup may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
    After testing, restart as usual (not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of Steps 1 and 2.

  • Problems with ios7; I can not download any new App

    In general, I feel the new ios7 makes my ipod 5 slow, it has had a couple of problems, most of them minor or have a simple solution, or can be ignored while they fix it... what I can not ignore is that I can not download ANY new App...
    I have been able to update a couple of them, though they have been very slow, now when I try to download something new, it seems like it'll work, but it never asks for my password as it used to and it never appears in the screen as downloading or anything. It is like if they'd just get stuck and waiting for it to react...
    ¿anyone else has had this problem? ¿advice? ¿solutions?

  • I created an Apple ID on my iPhone, but I can not download any application because a message appears saying that iTunes can not login.

    I created an Apple ID on my iPhone, but I can not download any application because a message appears saying that iTunes store can not login. The strange thing is that my Apple ID works perfectly when I try to access my icloud browser on my iMac and even I join this forum. I login with my ID system icloud without problems! Why can not I download applications? What relationship has between iTunes store and iCloud?

    You cannot download the same Apps that you have on your iPhone. They are two seperate stores.
    The store you have on your iPhone is the same for any iDevice (iPad, iPhone and iPod)
    The store on your MacBook is only for Macs.

    When I try to zoom the text of an e-mail I received or sent , I can no longer use the keys Command + to enlarge the text, although I can reduce it with Command -.
    As I have a problem with my eyes, This is a serious matter for me.
    When I write an e-mail, if I select text and press Command +, it just displaces the text to the right.
    Now, my husband has a USB keyboard. If he connects it to my computer, his regular Command + does not work either, but  he uses the extended keyboard, then it works. Unfortunately, he needs it for a musical application which does not work with a wireless keyboard.

    Firefox 3.6.4 and 3.6.6 use a process called, "plugin-container.exe" which was using up most of my CPU when I opened up multiple tabs that contained Adobe Flash files, and caused Firefox to lock up.
    My solution was to use Firefox 3.5.10 which you can get from the Mozilla website at [http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html]
    I am using Adobe Flash 10.1.53.64 without any problem in this version of Firefox. Check the release notes, I believe it contains all the latest security fixes in "Firefox 3.6.4".
    Hopefully, they will fix Firefox 3.6 in the next version (e.g. Firefox 3.6.7), until then you should probably use "Firefox 3.5.10".
