Pixelated images in safari, please help.

Hi everyone,
Hoping someone can help me with a issue i have with my new macbook pro.
When browsing the net, safari and firefox show really pixelated images. I thought it might be my internet connection compressing data or something, but i have tried other computers on the same internet connection and the images show perfect...
So this makes me think its the macbook. I have upgraded snow leopard from 10.6 to 10.6.2 and updated safari, but unfortunately this didnt help my problem. So now i have ended up here, asking you people, coz im out of ideas.
I will include some screen shots so you can see exactly what i mean.
Notice the bad quality images and even on google's banner it is pixelated heaps...
Please help if you can. Its very annoying. Cheers.

Yes, I see the big ugly squares. They are what appears whenever extremely heavy JPEG compression is applied to a low-resolution image tht has relatively large areas of similar colors. Something somewhere is applying such compression to the pages, or portions of them, that you are viewing in your browser(s). Your MBP is not doing that: it can't. Either the page images (or parts of them) are being compressed by the website owners or, if every web page is affected, they are being compressed by your ISP in the process of being transmitted to you, as Gordito suggests. That would greatly increase the speed of page loading, but at the expense of image quality. You wouldn't see the image degradation on an iPhone or cell phone — the screen is too small — but on the MBP's high-resolution display it would be much more apparent, IF the MBP were receiving the signal in the same highly compressed form as the phone. If the MBP receives the same web pages through an ISP that doesn't over-compress them, they'll look the way they ought to look. So if you are receiving these web pages through a cellular ISP rather than through a broadband connection, take the MBP to a wifi hotspot and connect through wifi instead. I bet things will look different then.
Compressing images is something a web browser can't do: a browser just displays the signal that comes to it.

    It would appear that your system is somewhat mangled, and it is time for some general 'servicing'.
    Start here:
    Repairing permissions is important, and should always be carried out both before and after any software installation or update.
    Go to Disk Utility (this is in your Utilities Folder in your Application folder) and click on the icon of your hard disk (not the one with all the numbers).
    In First Aid, click on Repair Permissions.
    This only takes a minute or two in Tiger, but much longer in Leopard.
    Background information here:
    and here:
    An article on troubleshooting Permissions can be found here:
    By the way, you can ignore any messages about SUID or ACL file permissions, as explained here:
    If you were having any serious problems with your Mac you might as well complete the exercise by repairing your hard disk as well. You cannot do this from the same start-up disk. Reboot from your install disk (holding down the C key). Once it opens, select your language, and then go to Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. Select your hard disk as before and click Repair.
    Once that is complete reboot again from your usual start-up disk.
    More useful reading here:
    Resolve startup issues and perform disk maintenance with Disk Utility and fsck
    For a full description of how to resolve Disk, Permission and Cache Corruption, you should read this FAQ from the X Lab:
    Reboot your Mac and then perform a Safe Boot:
    Mac OS X: What is Safe Boot, Safe Mode?
    Now try downloading and installing again.

  • My Iphone lost Safari, please help me restore it

    My Iphone lost Safari, please help me restore it

    So a Spotlight search on your phone to search for Safari and click the App. Once you verify that it is still on there you'll just have to look for it.
    If the App isn't listed, try a restart/reboot of the iPhone holding the home button and sleep/wake switch. If the App still doesn't show itself in the OS or via Spotlight, restore the phone via iTunes.

  • Pixelated Images on Web Gallery - Help!

    We have been receiving complaints from our clients that our web gallery images are pixelated - and indeed they are to the point that you cannot recognize the person in the image! I have tried to upload different resolutions - high (3000 pixels or more) and low (900 x 1000 or so) and nothing seems to change the way the images look. We use bridge we gallery for clients to order from, so this is obviously effecting what they want to order. Anyone have any ideas on how to remedy this? Please help!

    I am not sure how to determine that. The only options available there are for Small - Extra Large images, nothing about the size in K. When it is in Bridge it looks the way all photos look in Bridge, but when I actually upload it to the web that is when things get ugly.

  • Text editable in images in flash Please help

    Dear All Friends
    I want to make text editable in images in flash to get copy from text
    can i Make this
    and other question please
    can i convert text in image in flash to normal string ?
    please help
    Thank you

    Images do not store text data in any isolateable manner, it is comprised of just pixels like anything else in the image.  You would need to develop some form of complicated text recognition program to be able to extract text from an image, and I don't believe anyone has.

  • I can't open an image in Firefox, please help..

    I am using Firefox 11 UK edition on a HP Laptop running Windows 7.
    I like to view images in FF instead of Micro-craps image viewer programs. Until recently I had no problem with that. I would right click on the image and select open with FF. Today all of a sudden it wont do it.
    Today when I right click FF is not an option. When I do the browse thing and choose the program manually nothing happens at all.
    I mean nothing at all, its like windows doesn't see FF at all. It is very frustrating.
    The image will then open in MS Image Viewer.
    What is so off is it will allow me to use ANY other program even programs that not designed for it. (I will just get an error of course when it tried to open).
    It almost appears as though MS has done something to purposely not allow FF to do this.
    Please help!

  • I cant get my macbook pro to have a full screen in safari please help?

    I have tried getting my full screen back and its not working please help?????

    First off, iOS 7 does not run on Macs.
    Secondly, Mac Pros are desktops, and MacBook Pros are notebooks.  Something is not jibing with your signature and what you say you are running.  Please go to Apple menu -> About This Mac to tell us your Mac OS X version.
    Go to Safari menu -> About Safari, or Help menu-> About Safari to tell us your Safari version.
    That will tell us if fullscreen is an option.

  • Flashing Pixels (Bad Video) Apple please help!

    I read another topic about this (which has been archived without being answered) POST: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1174473
    I have these incessant flashing Green/blue pixels in windows through boot camp which makes it intolerable to use. It does this with the built in display but not with the extended display which I use on 270 degree orientation so I can't use that instead.
    Seems to be a huge number of people in that post with this complaint and my situation fits it exactly. It used to work fine and at some point (not sure which update exactly due to infrequent use at the time) it went bad. Nothing I do will fix it. I've even wiped the HD, repartitioned, reinstalled windows on boot camp and then restored my OSX with Time Machine... Allot of hassle for no results. Only saving grace was Time Machine with the OSX side of that effort.
    I want to know why apple refuse to even comment on this and maybe offer some thoughts on this? Maybe a fix even? Instead of locking the topic and shutting us up instead of working with us. What's next? A cover up to hide the fact? Maybe Apple should just delete the complaints from the support forums.
    Apple, please help, this is beyond tolerable and I need boot camp for a couple of Windows Only apps. If I had a choice I would defiantly use OSX versions.
    Just a side not. When I wiped the HD and went to reinstall form the backup the OSX installer recognized the destination and source but refused to run the restoration. I shut the whole thing down and started again and it worked fine.
    Apple please help!

    I'm having the same problem, I thought that Leopard's Boot Camp would fix it but it didn't work.

  • Cannot make image copy. Please Help

    Could be a problem with windows 8.3 filenames. Does it
    work if you pass dd the "short" filename associated with

    the MS-DOS "short" filename).

  • Pop up malware on Safari, please help

    I tried to go to yellowpages.com but mispelled it and this big pop up came up that says: notifications manager online scan detected security scan"
    I did not click on the OK button.  I can't get into Preferences or anything under the Safari heading it's all gray except for quit safari.
    Please help
    I'm using Firefox right now.  It's working.

    That is a phishing scam. See the following to fix your problem:
    Helpful Links Regarding Malware Problems
    If you are having an immediate problem with ads popping up see The Safe Mac » Adware Removal Guide and AdwareMedic.
    Open Safari, select Preferences from the Safari menu. Click on Extensions icon in the toolbar. Disable all Extensions. If this stops your problem, then re-enable them one by one until the problem returns. Now remove that extension as it is causing the problem.
    The following comes from user stevejobsfan0123. I have made minor changes to adapt to this presentation.
    Fix Some Browser Pop-ups That Take Over Safari.
    Common pop-ups include a message saying the government has seized your computer and you must pay to have it released (often called "Moneypak"), or a phony message saying that your computer has been infected, and you need to call a tech support number (sometimes claiming to be Apple) to get it resolved. First, understand that these pop-ups are not caused by a virus and your computer has not been affected. This "hijack" is limited to your web browser. Also understand that these messages are scams, so do not pay any money, call the listed number, or provide any personal information. This article will outline the solution to dismiss the pop-up.
    Quit Safari
    Usually, these pop-ups will not go away by either clicking "OK" or "Cancel." Furthermore, several menus in the menu bar may become disabled and show in gray, including the option to quit Safari. You will likely have to force quit Safari. To do this, press Command + option + esc, select Safari, and press Force Quit.
    Relaunch Safari
    If you relaunch Safari, the page will reopen. To prevent this from happening, hold down the 'Shift' key while opening Safari. This will prevent windows from the last time Safari was running from reopening.
    This will not work in all cases. The shift key must be held at the right time, and in some cases, even if done correctly, the window reappears. In these circumstances, after force quitting Safari, turn off Wi-Fi or disconnect Ethernet, depending on how you connect to the Internet. Then relaunch Safari normally. It will try to reload the malicious webpage, but without a connection, it won't be able to. Navigate away from that page by entering a different URL, i.e. www.apple.com, and trying to load it. Now you can reconnect to the Internet, and the page you entered will appear rather than the malicious one.

    From user Joe Bailey comes this equally useful advice:
    The facts are:
    1. There is no anti-malware software that can detect 100% of the malware out there.
    2. There is no anti-malware that can detect everything targeting the Mac.
    3. The very best way to prevent the most attacks is for you as the user to be aware that
         the most successful malware attacks rely on very sophisticated social engineering
         techniques preying on human avarice, ****, and fear.
    4. Internet popups saying the FBI, NSA, Microsoft, your ISP has detected malware on
        your computer is intended to entice you to install their malware thinking it is a
        protection against malware.
    5. Some of the anti-malware products on the market are worse than the malware
        from which they purport to protect you.
    6. Be cautious where you go on the internet.
    7. Only download anything from sites you know are safe.
    8. Avoid links you receive in email, always be suspicious even if you get something
        you think is from a friend, but you were not expecting.
    9. If there is any question in your mind, then assume it is malware.

  • Image is Flickering----Please help

    I have one hand image. I am drawing polygon above each finger.
    Whenever the user clicks on particular finger, we are changing the color of that polygon.
    We are changing the colors of the fingers(polygons) based on the database value when some functionalty is invoked. We are updating this color in PaintComponent of JPanel. The colors are flickering some time.
    Please help.
    Thanks in Advance.

    For drawing your component the best of all would be using Canvas component and double buffering.
    JPanel and othen Swing components using its own methods for paint and not necessarily draw components how would you like.
    class MyPainter extends Canvas {
    Image hand = ...;
    public void update(Graphics g) {
    public void paint(Graphics g) {
    Dimension size = this.getSize();
    Image painter = createImage(size.width, size.height);
    Graphics g2 = painter.getGraphics();
    g2.drawImage(hand, 0, 0, this);
    g.drawImage(g2, 0, 0, this);
    If you make applet you must cleat graphics g2 and image painter.

  • A Frozen computer+ A Restart= A none working SAFARI PLEASE HELP!

    So recently I moved back into my parents home and my sister bought a router. She lives upstairs I live downstairs. When I tried to get internet recently it was successful. So I went to my Mac updates and I had 13 that needed to be performed. After the 13 loaded It asked to restart the computer and I eventually did. But then it started to reload them again. After awhile of me trying to hold the button down and shut the computer down manually I shut it down by shutting my power strip its connected to off and then on. But Now when i restart my computer the 1st screen that pops up states "The Application GoogleSoftwareUpdateAgent quit unexpectedly" and give me 3 options (To Relaunch,Restart, or Ignore) When I relaunch NOTHING happens or it'll take me to a screen that says the program "quit unexpectedly after it was relaunched and resetting the application settings may fix the problem" but when I click the reset and relaunch option still nothing happens.
    Also, The programs IPages,Itunes,Ichat,Iwork,dictionary, and safari does not work and what works are things such as Final Cut, Folders on my desktop, a program called Mpeg stream clip, Just like random things work. I cant even do my software updates, it'll just give me the same screen with the same 3 options that dont work! WHat has happened? Did I lose my iPages work? Did I lose the internet? Did the 13 programs Not finish installing is this why this is happening? Do i have to reboot somehow? SOme one please help!. Iam very confused Thank you immensly for reading!

    Hi Editheworld
    it's likely that some of the files on the disk are damaged/missing due to the update not working out.
    Most likely - all your personal files are ok... but really, you should have some kind of backup plan for these rare occasions - even if it's just copying the most important things to DVD ( an external HD is nicer, but cost$ more).
    As regards what to do about it - I'd suggest an 'archive and install' - you can read about your options at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1545
    & follow that with the 10.5.8 combo update from here
    then whatever software update tells you is needed.
    Sometimes ... it's just one file that gets messed up & the reinstall can be avoided; but this does require reading/copying the Crash logs (if any) for the application(s) that don't work, then manually replacing the damaged file(s), with no guarantee it will work. Sooo it's easier & likely faster, to go the A & I route.

  • Windows 7 image restore issues (Please help!!!!)

    I backed up my Windows 7 partition to an external hard drive, deleted my Boot Camp partition, and made a new, bigger one. I then booted from the Windows 7 install DVD and went to restore the image to the drive, but it refuses to do so without wiping the entire disk. Someone please help me; I really need Windows back, and really don't want to go through the pain of reinstalling!

    It sounds like you are saying your rerun of bootcamp did not create a partition? Maybe run it again? give it the Install for restart with eexternal connected?
    The external backup you made had to be an Image Backup which is ~= to your (C: etc.) drive space and takes 1/2 to 1 hour to backup and to restore.
    1.Insert the installation disc or system repair disc.
    2.Restart your computer using the computer's power button.
    3.If prompted, press any key to start the computer from the installation disc or system repair disc - (You can select it from Option key start up)
    4.Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
    5.Click Repair your computer.
    This step only applies if you are using a Windows installation disc.
    Windows searches for external image
    6.Select a recovery option, and then click Next.
