Safari not displaying some web pages properly why?

I have been finding of late that safari does not display certain web pages properly. i.e.: text overlaps other text  and is not formatted properly. This seems to have become more common lately. Even Apple's own apple info page does not display properly. Could this be a setting in safari that I have messed up somehow?

Go step by step and test.
1. Delete Cookies
    Safari > Preferences > Privacy > Cookies and other website data:
    Click the “Details” button.
    Remove all cookies except from Apple, your internet service provider and banks.
2. Safari > Preferences > Extensions
    Turn off Extensions if any and launch Safari again to test.
    Turn on those one by one and test.
3. Delete Caches.db
    Close all windows and quit all applications.
    Hold "option" key down and click "Go" menu in the Finder menu bar.
    Select "Library" from the dropdown.
    Library > Caches > > Caches.db
    Right click the Caches.db file and select "Move To Trash.
    Close windows and relaunch Safari.
4. Empty Caches
    Safari > Preference > Advanced
    Checkmark the box for "Show Develop menu in menu bar".
    Develop menu will appear in the Safari menu bar.
    Click Develop and select "Empty Caches" from the dropdown.
5. Temporarily  turn off  Safari iCloud sync and test.
     System Preferences > iCloud
     Uncheck the box beside “Safari” and test.

  • Safari not loading some web pages

    Got a problem with Safari where it won't load certain web pages. This happens when I try to click on the buy button on certain web sites (such as Amazon), but not on all web sites. Safari tries to load the page but stops before any content is downloaded. I've tried re-installing the software, re-setting Safari, emptying the cache, cookies are enabled, and proxies are unchecked. If I run Internet Explorer I can access the pages that Safari won't download. Anyone got any suggestions????

    Do you have Little Snitch installed? If so, check the Little Snitch preference panel (under System Preferences) to make sure that there are not any Little Snitch rules denying Safari access to any ports. If only HTTPS sites are being effected, specifically check the rule for Port 443, as Safari needs Little Snitch to allow connections to that.
    I am not sure, but I think the update changed these rules around, at least on my computer.

  • Safari will not display my Web page properly
    If you mouseover each issue link, you are supposed to see a summary of the issue in the right pane. It works in Mozilla, Opera, and IE. Safari just shows the first mouseover image.
    This is a Bug. I'm not sure how to report it.

    It may not neccesarily be an issue with Safari, but the website itself. Web designers test their webpages with certain browsers. Example, Internet Explorer and Firefox because they are the 2 most popular.
    Because each browser handles webpages differently, the page may look and operate different in seperate browsers.
    A good web designer constructs pages thinking of the many browsers and develops a site that is accepted by all browsers.

  • I have ipad with IOS 7,  Some apps doesn' t work, safari not open some web site. What can I do?

    I have ipad with IOS 7,  Some apps doesn' t work, safari not open some web site. What can I do?

    Try this and see if it helps.
    Settings>Safari>Clear cookies and data.
    Now close Safari completely. Double tap the home button and you will see apps lined up going left to right across the screen. Swipe to get to the app that you want to close and then "swipe up" or "drag up" on the app preview thumbnail to close it.
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.

  • Why is Safari not displaying some pages correctly?

    Safari seems to be messing up again.  Had this problem quite a while ago.  It's not displaying some pages correctly.
    Notice the 2 enclosed screen shots.  I went to purchase something (no personal info in the jpgs) 
    Notice the W-Safari.  Little trash cans by the purchase items missing as well as the submit button and a few other things.  So I opened Chrome.
    Notice in the W-Chrome, everything is displaying correctly.
    I've had problems like this some time ago but I thought they were fixed.
    Thanks for any suggestions or help.

    Post a URL so what we can look at it.

  • HT5364 Safari is not displaying the web page content & Crashes on clicking Security Tab in Preferences!

    I have Mac 10.8.4 with Safari 6.0.5.
    Safari is not displaying the web content but images on the web page are being displayed.
    Although the webpage is loaded, but nothing is shown else than Images. When I hover the mouse on the blank webpage shown, the cursor changes on the links on the web page.
    I tried resetting the preferences from the menu as well as deleting the Preferences of Safari from ~/Library/Preferences/ but nothing helped.
    When I open Preferences of Safari & click on Security tab, It Crashes!!

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
    Step 1
    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select
    View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar.
    Enter the name of the crashed application or process in the Filter text field. Select the messages from the time of the last crash, if any. Copy them to the Clipboard (command-C). Paste into a reply to this message (command-V).
    When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.
    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
    Step 2
    Still in the Console window, look under User Diagnostic Reports for crash reports related to the process. The report name starts with the name of the crashed process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report and post the entire contents — again, the text, not a screenshot. In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.) Please don’t post shutdownStall, spin, or hang logs — they're very long and not helpful.

  • After 6 months can not access some web pages

    I can not get several web pages to work when I pull them up. Like Comcast, the main page comes up but not the current TV listings.

    Unfortunately this hasn't worked either. I did this several times, after deleting cache files and repairing permissions. Do you think the issue is something that the ISP could address?
    Another issue has appeared: I'm unable to login to a site that a friend has constructed; he assures me that when he uses the same login information on his mac there's no access problem. When I try, the login fields just reappear, without what I've entered.
    Any ideas are appreciated!

  • Simple text edit html files will not display as web pages using Safari

    How does one get Text Edit files saved as HTML to display as a web page rather than showing the code as written?  It appears that somehow some sort of code generator is being invoked and causing this to happen.  I am not trying to do anything complex, just simple files like "Hello World".

    Hi ..
    Make sure you are following the instructions as noted here >  Creating a Basic Web Page
    You may need to turn off all Safari extensions.
    From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Extensions tab.
    Switch to OFF.
    Then see if it reads as HTML or Hello World.

  • Safari won't show some web pages properly.

    After re-loading OS X 10.3.9 on my Powerbook g4 1.25ghz, 1.25memory and updating all updates. Safari now won't load Facebook completely. All other web pages seem to be loading OK. I usually use Firefox but I can't seem to get ANY version of that web browser to load now. So I'm stuck with Safari that won't load Facebook.
    I've tried deleting caches and Safari prefs…didn't work.

    That's an outdated version of Safari for sure and explains why web pages aren't rendering as they should for you.
    Click the Apple () menu (top left in your screen) then click: Software Update ...
    Hopefully the Software Update will bring your Mac up to speed. Make sure and restart your Mac after the updates are installed.
    In case you aren't aware, you can run Tiger or Leopard on your PBookG4.
    Tiger v10.4 minimum requirements:
    Minimum requirements for Leopard v10.5
    You are running an outdated Mac OS X, v10.3. Apple released Panther in 2003. Unless you upgrade the Mac OS X and Safari, you will continue to have problems using Facebook and other sites as well on the PBook.

  • Firfox will load but will not display any web page, neither will Safari, but I do not have a problem with IE.

    I can load Firefox, and get all the bars and acknowledgment itis running but I get a error message that the webpage is unavailable, all web pages, Safariis the same way. This is on my Dell Desk top, but not a problem with HP mini and using the same Internet access.

    A possible cause is security software (firewall) that blocks or restricts Firefox without informing you about that, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
    Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process.

  • Safari not displaying some pages

    I trying to go to the FEC website to look at some donation forms as part of my job.  For some of the pages, it's blank -- what I mean is, the page will open, but the actual form won't -- there is message link that says 'missing plug-in.'  When I click on it a litte window appears that says
    'To view this content, you need Adobe Reder.  Click '' More Info '' to visit the company's webstie.' 
    I've done that, and downloaded the latest version, but I get the same result. 
    Can anyone tell me what's going on?  I don't know if it has to do with the time of the donation, although some of pages to come up -- I think they're older forms.

    A follow up to this, folks -- the pages open up on my PC in firefox, but they won't open up in Firefox either on the MAC.  It's really strange -- I used to be able to open up the forms.  Could it be that the latest update to Snow Leopard could have caused something to happen?

  • Firefox suddenly not loading several web pages properly

    I've had Firefox 4 since the release date, but today it's been acting up - it's not loading certain webpages properly, removing all the formatting and just putting all the text/links/etc in a list along the left hand side of the window. It's also not showing some pictures at all any more, although they're all hosted on Photobucket. This is literally ther first time there's been a problem with it since updating, and I've not changed any settings on it at all, so I have no clue why it's suddenly broken. Is anyone else getting this?

    Same issue for me suddenly began this morning (yesterday all was fine) - it's not that images aren't loading, it's quirky code errors. In some cases, CTRL-F5 fixes it... but, in others, it does not (e.g. Facebook only loads the most recent couple dozen status updates - clicking the link for more does nothing; I also did a daily check of fares on SW Airlines website - code for the reservation window won't load, and when I try manually typing it the info isn't accepted).
    My short-term solution is to go back to IE8 - not happy about it, but at least all of the web pages I visit are properly working.

  • WAD: Push button not displaying some Web Items

    Hi All,
    I have a web template 7.x in which there is a push button for "Export to PDF". There are some changes carried out to this web template, to include one radio button web item. My requirement is to display this Web Item on the export to PDF page.
    I have included this radio button web item in "Export to PDF" button list. However still it is not displayed on Export to PDF page.
    Is there any other setting which i am missing?
    Appreciate your quick response.

    Hi Samruddhi,
    As per SAP Note 1069368 which talks about the limitations of Export to PDF functionality in WAD 7, the following webitems alone are supported on Export to PDF:-
    Supported Web items
    Analysis item
    Report item (see also the section 'Web application export with report items')
    Chart item
    Map item
    Information item
    Text item
    List of conditions
    List of exceptions
    Images (only from the MIME repository, see Note 484390)
    Thus Radio Button cannot be included in the exported PDF.

  • 4.0b4 will not display any web pages in Mac ox 10.6.4 - now solved, see beow

    Firefox stopped displaying web pages. No address bar, status bar, nothing. The pages I try to load appear under the "windows" menu, but the "minimize" and zoom controls are grayed out.
    I downloaded and reinstalled 4.0b4, but this did not help. "internal" windows like bookmark listings or downloads show fine.

    I found the problem: poor recognition of multiple screen settings. I typically use a MacBook Pro with an auxiliary monitor so that I have two screens active. The problem occurred when I was not connected to the secondary screen. Apparently Firefox was setting the new windows up on the non-existant screen. One part of the program recognized that the windows were not visible, but that information was not properly conveyed to the function that decided where in the desktop space to place new, active windows.
    Restarting the MacBook had no impact on resolving the problem, but connecting the second monitor did.

    Is there content missing or does it only show differently?
    You can try these steps in case of issues with web pages:
    Reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.
    *Hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
    *Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
    *Press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)
    Clear the cache and cookies only from websites that cause problems.
    "Clear the Cache":
    *Firefox/Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"
    "Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:
    *Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"
    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
    *Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.
