View Full Version : Paypal Not Loading In Safari

12th July 2005, 11:56 AM
Hi all,

I've been having trouble going to paypal (http://www.paypal.com) in safari... It simply won't load.

It works fine in Internet Explorer though.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Anyone got an explanation or theory on why, and possible solution?

Yep, same here, for some reason PayPal is also not loading here :(

But it works for me in FireFox

Just tried Firefox aswell, and it does work, although very slow to load...

I have had the problem too. But noticed that if you click the x in Safari to stop loading, it will go on to the next stage.

A mate of mine (IT guru in my eyes!) tells me that it's because the SSL encryption on some sites such as paypal, is microsoft based technology/programming whatever, and so doesn't play well with others, such as Safari. Safari being Apple only, whereas Firefox is Windows and Mac.

Apparently some banking and online shopping sites have the same problem for Safari users, for the same reason....

Looks like we just have to use Firefox or IE unfort.

Never had a prob with Paypal on Safari. Proof below.

Hrmm. Maybe I should have cropped a couple more pixels there. *cough*

What version of Safari you using Squozen?

The latest, but I've never had a problem, and I've been using Safari since Jaguar. Maybe you're running some kind of plugin or using a misbehaving proxy server?

yeah got me beat! Mine is the latest version aswell - on Panther.

But then yesterday, trying to access paypal and nothing. And still nothing now...
