A few days after upgrading to Yosemite, I started noticing that Safari was moving VERY SLOWLY. After a day or two of this it stopped loading webpages at all! So I switched to using Chrome, then my Mail app stopped receiving mail, it would send mail but again it is VERY slow. Then messages wouldn't sign into my AIM account, and I noticed that the App Store won't load any pages at all. I've searched around the web and found that some other people had the same issue, here's a link to one comment on an apple discussion thread that helped me several times, but now that doesn't even help anymore!

So the question: has anybody over here had this issue and found a solution to it?

Thanks in advance!

  • to test, did you use the "ping google.com" in terminal and let it run use "ctrl+c" to stop, while monitoring the numbers, it should be around 20ms or less. – Ruskes Mar 2 '15 at 21:31

    Is Chrome still working fine? And how was Safari moving slowly? Was the user interface (chrome) unresponsive? Spinning beach ball of death? Or did the pages just not load / load slowly? – szupie Mar 2 '15 at 21:52
  • Chrome works great, as far as Safari goes, the interface works fine (no beach ball of death or anything) it just would take a coon's age to load any webpage. – Circle B Mar 3 '15 at 14:16
  • @Buscar웃 when I ping google my response time is from 22.445 to 40.944 ms. – Circle B Mar 3 '15 at 14:18

    ok, the ping is bit on slow end but still fine and not the reason, your network connection is fine in general. Lets test the specifics: Under Apple (top left) select Location, then Network Preferences than in new window select Assist me- than Diagnostics and let it run for the Location you are using. – Ruskes Mar 3 '15 at 16:57
