Are you running any type of antivirus, perchance?
Edit: We can also try clearing your DNS cache in OSX, as perhaps it could be causing an issue. Take a look at this article for a brief walkthrough on how to clear your DNS cache. I'd also clear your browser cache (as you previously had) before doing this, shut down your browsers completely (hit Command + Q when they are the active program), then clearing the OSX cache.
Joe, I have not uploaded any virus program at all. Using whatever that came with the Mac. Also, I am sure not how to go about clearing the DNS cache. The following paragraphs read :
Remember, each of these commands must be entered into the command line, by way of the Terminal applications (found in /Applications/Utilities/ in all version of Mac OS X). Launch that app first and then you can just copy and paste the commands in if you’d like.
Flush DNS in OS X 10.9 Mavericks
Running the latest version of OS X? Here is how to flush the DNS cache in 10.9:
dscacheutil -flushcache;sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder
You will need to enter the admin password for this task to complete. If you notice, it combines killing mDNSResponder with the standard dscacheutil, making it a two step process to first, flush cache, then reload the DNS handling in OS X so that the changes take effect.
Where do I locate "/Applications/Utilities" ? And it further says i will need the admin password to complete the task - would I have this password ?
