Safari can’t load webpages, shows a blank page, or quits? Try this

Internet works on all other devices. Very strange. I tried three routers and had the same problem with all of them. I then created a new admin user account on my Mac and the internet worked on it. When I returned to my own account - the internet was working again!

Refresh the page

Any idea why this would happen? It seems creating a new admin account and then coming back solved it. Highlight the connection, click Advanced, then check the different tabs to see if any information is statically entered. Specifically, check under Proxies. Any sort of manual override under your account could be at fault. I had the same problem; I tried everything and nothing seemed to work! Fortunately I solved the problem after many disappointments; I hope it works for you too. Here's what I did: I went to network preferences, on the left side you can see a WiFi icon.

I chose it and then deleted it, then turned off my Mac I didn't restart it, I just turned it off and then turned it on again. Thank you for your interest in this question.

Websites not loading in Safari? Try this

In the scroll box it probably says automatic, choose the add new location option and create and new location and choose location instead of automatic. I find that for some reason your network location sometimes becomes corrupted causing all sorts of issues with accessing websites, and making a new location fixes it. I just want you to know that I created an account on this page for 1 reason!!! To thank you for that post.. Well written and easy to follow I thought I had tried everything and I thought I knew a lot, but wow!!! Can't thank you enough!

SOME internet websites will not load, Cant find error.

I spent hours and hours clearing caches, resetting DNS, etc. Your trick of changing location from "Automatic" to a new one and then reflushing DNS finally did the job! Posted 15 November - AM.

I'd checked domain settings, spoke to web host, flushed caches, DNS settings etc etc etc to no avail Searched and found this forum, followed your instructions and as per happy daisy, changing my location from 'Automatic' to a 'new' one worked!!!!!
