Safari is my default browser. When at home, with cable modem and Airport, I use it to read the news daily, cnn, slashdot, and c|net (and, of course, AF). Right now I'm visiting family in FL, and I'm using my v551 and Cingular internet connection to get online.
For some reason, Safari won't load certain sites, and some sites incompletely. Applefritter is one of the sites that doesn't load completely... gets part of the way up, then just sort of loads forever, spinning cogwheel in the tab, but never quite finishes loading. cnn never comes up, nor slashdot, but c|net, Google, & others seem to load fine. I'm posting this with FireFox because these Safari-troubled pages load fine in FireFox, and in lynx. I thought it might be a DNS issue, exept for this fact. I added a few "nearby" name servers to the dns list just in case, but still, Safari seems to be crippled when I'm using this cell phone internet connection.
I've tried resetting Safari, but it hasn't changed anything. I've stopped short of deleting prefs because I'm not exaxctly sure where my bookmarks are stored, and I'd really rather not lose them (before I back up and try, I guess I'd like to know where they are kept, first).
Does anyone have any idea why Safari would behave this way for this connection, but with my broadband connection seems fine?
