i'm unable to display all contents of a website using Safari on my MacBook Pro.

hi Experts,

 My girlfriend bought this macbook pro and she needs to get to this website below and when she logs in it only shows 1/2 of the website and the rest is blank??

This is the website

http://idp.socal.safemsl.net/idp/authn/userpassword

below the sign in it says This website requires flas 10 or higher - get flash player.

 I have downloaded it and installed it but we get the same response from this specific website. What is the fix here?

The correct answer is set out below. It took about 30 seconds to find once the correct domain name for the problem website was discovered, no thanks to the OP, unfortunately. To be frank, I was disposed against taking the further time to post this answer, which rewards the OP's lack of consideration and cooperation — he posted an incorrect URL and persisted in his misinformation, despite multiple requests that he check and correct it. That lack of consideration and cooperation wasted the time of everyone who tried to help and was to the OP's own detriment, as it delayed his solution.

On reading the OP's last message referring to "MLS" I was able to infer that the real domain was "safemls.net" and not "safemsl.net" as he provided. It turned out that the balance of the URL provided by this obstinate OP was also incorrect, because the path in the correct URL, "http://idp.socal.safemls.net/idp/Authn/UserPassword" has capitals.

The correct URL takes you as far as a login page that appears to display correctly. As noted above, it also made it possible to find the simple solution to the problem.

The solution: SoCal MLS' online support does say that, under Windows, you have to use IE. It also says that native access with a mac is supported, using their mac client. This is all clearly documented in their mac support section: http://support.socalmls.com/mac/ 

I have heard "we don't support mac" more than enough times to know it often means "I don't know enough to help you" or something similar.

Is the URL correctly spelled?

I tried it using various browers and get the reply that there is a network error. Which might as such explain her problem.

It's however always good to have one or two other browsers at hand besides Safari. Opera, Chrome, Firefox to name a few.

Is it trying to run another addin like Java? I am guessing the URL is only accessible by certain IP's I get nothing when I try to visit your link above.

"yes its the correct URL."
No, it is not the correct URL. Whois says: No match for "SAFEMSL.NET" and dns comes up empty for all of idp.socal.safemsl.net, socal.safemsl.net and safemsl.net

Before anyone here wastes any more time on this, please
• determine the correct URL,
• test it
• try it on your own computer (running Windows, I assume) if it still doesn't work

Whatever it is you are typing, you can assume that I (and others) have clicked on the incorrect URL you provided in your question. I was interested in helping you with your issue, but I am unwilling to engage in an uphill battle to get your cooperation.

Good luck resolving your issue.

i contacted the support desk with MLS and they don't support mac, so they gave me a workout for the mean time...which is pretty much accessing IE via one of their citrix servers.
