Reports of web site not loading in Mac/Safari

Hello,

I am receiving reports that a site of mine (www.cruiseflicks.com) is not loading in Mac/Safari. I've received reports from 4 different users that it simply doesn't load, no error messages or anything. When they switch to Mac/Firefox it loads without a problem. I've tested the site on my Mac/Safari and it's loading fine for me using the same version as the users who are having the problem (Safari 4.0.4). One user reported that after they unchecked "Block Pop-Up Windows" the site loaded.

Would anyone out there on a Mac/Safari please check www.cruiseflicks.com and let me know if it loads for them? Additionally, if anyone has any idea why this might be happening that would be very helpful. I'm not even sure how to start troubleshooting this because I can't re-produce it on my end.

Thanks!

Turns out they ARE getting an error message from Safari that reads:

"Safari can't open the page 'http://www.cruiseflicks.com'. The error was: "Bad Server Response" (NSURLErrorDomain:-10111)"

Anyone have any idea what these means? Is this a problem with the server or with the client computer?

According to MacDev, "This is equivalent to the “500 Server Error” message sent by HTTP servers.".  Found on http://developer.apple.com/mac/library/documentation/Cocoa/Reference/Foundation/Miscellaneous/Foundation_Constants/Reference/reference.html  I have Safari 1.03 on an old Mac and it doesn't display your page correctly (no big surprise) but it does display some of your javascript code!

Thanks for the replies!

DaveBaldwin - Thanks for the information. Does that mean this is a server issue? I reviewed the link you included, but unfortunately couldn't make much sense out of it.

Thanks!

I can't say that I understood that error description myself.  I think they were talking about an internal error in Safari.

Note also that running your page thru the W3C HTML Validator shows 640 errors.  Since browsers are written to display pages in spite of a lot of small errors like missing 'alt' tags, I'm wondering if that many errors requires the browsers to do a lot of 'guessing' as to what should be displayed.  When I accessed your page in Safari 1.03, I didn't think it was going to load because it took a very long time.

This turned out to be a hosting issue. Got this response from web hosting support:

"I have flushed the firewall, This will resolve your issue. Let me know for any other assistance."
