Cant access certain websites 10.5.6, but can on Macbook Air 10.5.8? - 08-06-2009, 11:35 AM
Ok so i want to use my mini while at work to check my banking and my shares, but it just wont load the website, i have no problems on my iMac or my Macbook Air, both running 10.5.8.
My dell mini is running 10.5.6 but i have both flash and java installed, the websites even wont load trying Safari, anyone got any ideas?? (i cant upgrade to 10.5.7 as i have an 8gb ssd at the moment)
The sites are: http://ibank.barclays.co.uk/ and Barclays Stockbrokers
Im thinking there is probably a security setting for the web or something along those lines that has been updated in the OS as it seems strange that even the latest firefox cant access the sites.
If some of you guys can try the sites that are running different OS versions (as well as mine) and post your results please

Any reason you're using the "Combo" update? I think that's for people who are upgrading from 10.5.5 or lower; 10.5.6 should just be able to use the smaller normal update to get to 10.5.7.
For additional space savings (in case non-combo installer doesn't do it for you), you can nuke Printer drivers, remove excess languages and remove unused architectures (PPC code) from whatever system stuff is still on the hard drive. Monolingual (used for the latter two things) recovered a good 300-400MB for me just from system software, as I used it prior installing any other apps.
Good luck, hopefully I'm not wrong about it being possible in your situation.
For reference, link to regular update:
Notice it's half the size of the combo file. Thus it should need less temp space to decompress its files, etc.
Also, after downloading, move the installer to a flash drive or SD card and run it from there. That'll be another 500MB not actually on the SSD while updating.
