I have a peculiar problem that's driving me nuts. The problem is with formula 1 website<br><br>The problem appears to be only with Safari and only on my G5. Both my laptop and daughter's Mini are fine.<br><br>This is the peculiar part. In the screenshot below you'll see an area I've enclosed in lime green. All the links within are dead. When I right click I get the message shown. Movie? There is no movie there. <br><br> All parts of the website outside that area work as expected. It's a head scratcher. I can understand a problem with Safari but why does most of the website work fine but that area does not..... and only on one machine?<br><br><br><br>
Make a test user in the Accounts pane of System preferences. log on and as that user and try it there.<br><br>I may be bailing in a few, cousin is in town, but try that first.<br><br>------>#1 - JD's Trivia game<br><br>------>#2 - MM-MCF Trivia game<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Reboot on 09/07/08 09:57 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
Works fine with Firefox. <br><br>I know it has be a Safari issue. What I don't get is why just this one website and only that small section? Every other link on that page works fine. <br><br> It's very peculiar. I have zero problems at other Flash intensive sites.<br><br>

Are all the Safari-browsers on all Macs the same version number, or is the one on your G5 possibly an older version?<br><br>I might've picked up something from the source code, as the site seems to have different .css stylesheets for different platforms and browsers so there is a remote chance of the Safari version on the G5 being different than the other Macs and perhaps outdated from the site's and css point of view.<br><br>
The G5 is my main machine and is completely up to date. I haven't done the latest Leopard update on the laptop. The Mini is running Tiger.<br><br>I forgot to add. I frequent this website all the time. It worked fine about 3 weeks ago but I noticed the problem after the last F1 race two weeks ago. I just thought it was a web glitch on their end. I notified the webmaster last Thursday not realizing the problem was with my machine. The person was right on it checking things out and replied they couldn't see any problem at their end. It was then I decided to try the other machines and was surprised everything worked as it should.<br><br>I checked my laptop and the only difference in updates between that and my G5 is the last Security Update.<br><br>
