Apple must be doing more than new products because.....

My MacBook, older 15" MBP, 10.6 and 10.7 will not let Safari access the internet now. Always worked before but I just fired these two computers up and nada internet.

any suggestions? other than upgrade the OS? I don't want to do that because I don't know if the programs I want will run like an old Photoshop edition.

If I live long enuf I'll be upgraded out of all my macs and iPads and left with nothing to computer on.....except my HP and Vaio

You can still access the web but many websites don't like the older versions of Safari. Try tenfourfox:

Good luck with that on a MacBook.

I'lll have to check to see if your picture has been posted at the post office, library, coffee shop, airport and anyplace else there is internet access to see if you've been banned everywhere.

I'm surfing to this forum using the stock Safari 5.1.10 on Mac OS X 10.6.8.

It is true that there are many websites that don't like this old Safari any more. When on 10.6.8 for those I use FireFox 45.9.0.

Please, when you find my pix don't post it on the FORUM. I want to keep what few friends I have. If they knew I was displayed at the PO...well......RollingEyesSmiley5

Yes, I'm finding out Safari is a stepchild and no no on the MacBook with floodgap as you indicated.

TenFourFox is not going to work on an Intel Mac.

Depending on what version of Photoshop Sam has, she might be able to install Mavericks, unless her laptop is too old to run anything later than Lion. I’m sure someone here could help her out with a Mavericks installer.

Search my recent posts and try the Firefox quantum trick on 10.7 - I couldn't get it to work on 10.6. Worth a shot. I can verify 10.8 works well.
