Strange mac issue

Hi...I am a devleoper and have been working on a 1.67 g4 mac laptop for the last 2.5 years...worked great.

I just upgraded to an Intel iMac 2.4 20" model and it is a fast beautiful machine....except...

When I load certain websites...(even ones I built on the g4) I can browse a few pages but then it stops. Looks like it is going to load the page but it never finishes loading the page. Actually I cant load any pages after that. I click and it it just sits there....If I relaunch the browser, it works fine for a minute then does it again.

This is a real issue as the site I need to browse is my main company website that I am constantly am working on and building. <snip>

If there is anyone who has ever experienced this issue and solved it please let me know. Any help would be appreciated. I havent found any similar issues doing google searches.

I am using OSX 10.5.8, 1gb ram

BTW: This issue occurs on Firefox and Safari so it doesnt seem to be a browser issue. Thanks for your input.

Bluesprocket, that is a very unusual problem. I have never heard of it before. You may wish to contact a local Apple Store (assuming you have one) and make an appointment to bring the iMac in.

Some general Mac OS X troubleshooting things you could try if you don't want to take it the store yet. Some of them might solve the issue, others just narrow it down.

1. Create a new user account, and see if you see the issues there. If not, something in your user account got corrupted.

2. Zap the PRAM.

3. Connect to the internet through a different network.

4. Turn off JavaScript, Java, plug-ins.

5. If you visit the site in Safari and it becomes unresponsive, does FF become unresponsive too?

6. Check Activity Monitor -- is the browser chewing up CPU time?

7. Does a FF browser on a PC also freeze up on the site?

None of those issues are the problem...I upgraded to Snow Leopard and it looks like the issue is gone now.
