Safari Slow And Freezing?

My iPad constantly freezes on sites like eBay - will not play cNet video etc. What's up? we have no flash, and the alternative doesn't work either????

Please don't tell me to disable javascript, eBAy is useless with out it, and OS X is meant to support it.

Severe Slow Downs And Freezing - Could It Be The Jailbreak Or Virtual Memory?
I'm both JB and have the virtual memory hack and am noticing worsening freezes and slowdowns, especially in the web browsers (both safari and atomic), and even sometimes the browser will just shut off on me, and thats with only 3 or 4 tabs open. I've also noted decreased accuracy on finger presses registering, don't know if that's related.I'm getting ready to completely wipe the entire ipad, but I'd rather not lose my JB stuff and am starting to suspect the virtual memory hack.

Safari Tool Bar Freezing Up?
The three icons (bookmarks, etc) to the left of the address bar freeze up and won't work at times. The only way to unfreeze them is to reboot the iPad. Anyone else ever have this happen.

Slow Browsing Using Safari?
After getting my ipad and being very excited with it, I am now wondering just what I want to do with it. Browsing the internet is like sitting down at with a legacy device and trying to visit modern web pages. My windows Atom net-book can run circles around it, and it's over a year old . . .

This is very disappointing. I can only hope Apple takes notice and has a patch solution.

But if I have to hope every web site has to make and app version of their site (e.g., Facebook app), and then have to purchase and install -- no way!

I hope all that is needed is some cleaner iOS. That or apple just should consider putting a intel dual into this device . . .

I've tried looking at some of the other post, and there are some similar issues. Anyway, I'm looking for input and want to know if I got this right . . . that it is indeed slow and there is no fix at this moment?

Let me know and thanks for reading!

PS, this was NOT sent from my ipad . . .

Safari Slow To Repsond ?
I just got my new iPad (3rd generation), and something that surprised me about it was that it was so slow to become responsive in Safari. I'm not sure if this is just my problem or this is something that everyone goes through. Whether I choose to touch the address bar or the search bar, Safari usually takes about 5 seconds to respond. That's an unexpectedly high time. I'm coming from using an iPhone 4 as my only iOS device so I assumed I'd see comparable or better speeds with iPad's Safari. Was the assumption wrong? Or is there something wrong with my iPad? No other app has shown unresponsiveness on that level. The iPad has, otherwise, been a model of speed and wonder for me. Which makes this Safari behavior stand out all the more.

Slow Streaming/buffering In Safari?
Leaving Facebook... | Facebook

I'm having problems with slow streaming/buffering. Can someone click the above video on their iPad and tell me if it's slow or not? When I watch this on my laptop it runs great, but on iPad it's horribly slow and choppy (same network). I spent a good hour talking to apple support with no luck..

p.s No, I'm not an Info Wars nut. This is just an example of random videos not working on iPad.

Safari Suddenly Really Slow On IPad 1
My iPad 1 still has iOS 4 on it and nothing has changed. So why is Safari suddenly running slow? I mean REALLY slow. It may take up to 60 seconds to download a full web page. It varies; sometimes it's better, then it gets bad again.

Slow Internet/Safari Limitations/pdf Hangs
Ipad is supposed to be your internet gateway in the house and is a perfect format for that but I am getting very frustrated with Safari's limitations (iPad version). Many sites that work fine on my macbook are not working on the iPad, pages with scroll down windows / lists is one for example. Pdf's that open only on what's visible on the screen and getting stuck on that with nothing else coming and no access to even the bottom of the first page. Lastly i find the internet connection to be much slower on the iPad that on the other computers in the house.

IPad 2 Safari Slow In Loading Webpages?
issue with safari taking its slow sweet time in loading pages? And I get checkerboard when I scroll up and down pages. Don't believe it's home network problem. Also don't notice similar lag when using apps or even viewing YouTube vids. iPad 2 is two weeks old, and I haven't done anything unusual to it.

Won't Work With Safari / Slow And Server Stoped Responding
I am very unhappy with the iPad, specifically the performance (or lack there of) of Safari. Most pages that are not pure html load slowly or not at all. Usually they require that I stop the load and click the reload to get them to show. Pages that require a login like Facebook won't come up at all. I've confirmed my login on Facebook by logging out and back in on my Mac but with the iPad... nothing but a hang and eventually a note that the 'server stopped responding' (don't think so because I can log in on my Imac).

I cannot down load free apps from the app store and in fact can't get my account info to come up. Again, of the iMac, no problems. I guess the App Store serve could be very busy because of the demand for apps being downloaded for all the new iPads but that does not explain my web access issues.

I am less than happy about this thing.

I pay a game through Facebook but can also access

Freezing During Video.
It freezes during video. Happened once while on the abc app and a couple other times watching video on CNN's website. I assume this can be addressed via software update, but has anyone else had this problem?

Random Freezing - App Store
I open up the App Store on my iPad sometimes and the iPad freezes - I have to reboot it with the Home & Lock button technique.I can't quite explain what precipitates this freezing, it seems to be random. Usually the App Store says "Loading..." as we all know, but in these freezing instances nothing appears except the white background and then I have to reboot.

Freezing When Watching Video From App
This happened twice yesterday. A hard reset, which deleted all of my apps when it re-synced to itunes, was the only way to get it to unfreeze. I deleted the ABC app but in the process of reloading my apps I missed the latest episode of Lost. Tried again tonight to watch Lost after downloading ABC app and less than 2 minutes in - frozen.

Freezing When Playing Video.
Any time I play a video I can count on it freezing if it is html5. YouTube plays longer but if I have a video that's about 6 or 7 minutes it will freeze and playing a stored video will always freeze after about the same amount of time. In order to get out of it I have to do a hard reset.

Freezing When Video Playing?
Haven't been playing tons of video so I don't know if it's had this issue since I first got my iPad or if something I might have done has started to cause the issue, but in the past week it's seized up three different times when playing video... Once was online (vimeo) but the other two times I was playing the Apple keynote where the iPad was introduced, downloaded through iTunes, on the native video player.

3G model, 64GB space; I've got about 40GB of video loaded on. Not jailbroken.

I've watched more than a few videos on YouTube via the YouTube app, and haven't had any issues with freezing up; don't know if this indicates it's an issue with the video player app or if I've just been luckier when using YouTube.

Picture freezes up, iPad becomes unresponsive. Can't force quit or power down; I have to force a restart.

Keeps Freezing - Way To Get Complete New Itunes ?
My sister and I both got ipads a month back, but her one keeps freezing. The only way to get it working again is a complete new iTunes restore. This is happening 2-3 times a week, which is irritating as it was synced to my iTunes whilst she was away for uni. Would apple give me a new one? Seems like a problem in my eyes

BBC IPlayer Freezing After Playing A While?
I live in the UK and have a 20Mb (actual measured) internet connection. The problem I have is that when I try and play anything from the BBC iPlayer, it will play for anything from 7 to 30 mins or so and then freeze as though it's buffering with the little arrowed circle in the middle of the screen. I am playing from either Safari or Atomic Browser and the results are the same.If I come out of the playback and try again, it will again freeze sometimes at the same point and other times a few min's further in. If you just leave it - well lets say I got bored after about 40mins !!!I have tried this on both my home network (via 802.11n wifi network) and at work on a 3.7Mb internet link (and 802.11g wifi) with the same results.I can play the same iPlayer programs on a laptop or my iPod touch with no problems, it's just the iPad.I contacted Apple support and the adviser tried and found the same problem on her iPad!I've search a few forums and can't find any reports of this phenomena so "has anyone else got this problem?" I can't believe that the BBC iplayer is inherently causing this problem and no-one else isn't shouting about it.

New Ipad 1 Freezing After Update
After getting the latest update from Mad magazine I tried to download the new issue, something must have gone wrong as for the past day it has been stuck in some sort of spinning limbo. I've tried turning the Ipad off and on again - nothing doing.Tried to recover issues still not working.A message randomly appears "start session has been called already, it should only be called once" ??? What does this mean? And periodically I get a message saying updating - but surely it shouldn't take this long? The download has obviously frozen but what can I do to restart it?

1st Generation IPad FREEZING?
my dad has one of the original IPads, i.e., not an IPad2, it's begun freezing: he'll use the browser, find the page he wants, fiddle w/the magnification a few times, then it'll freeze, then throw him back to his desktop, browser shut down; this also happens when he's using the IPad to read an ebook, so it isn't just a Safari issue. He's tried "restarting." i've tried to walk him through restoring it to factory setting, because that's what i figure he'll have to do, but he, for some reason, DOESN'T WANT TO. i think, because he didn't set it up to begin w/(my sister in law got it for him and set it up, so he's assuming it's a lot more involved than it is, i think), so i told him i could post to a forum and see if anyone had any suggestions OTHER than restoring. does anyone have any experience w/this happening? it just started, out of the blue, doing this. he's had it about a year..

IPad 2 Is Freezing During Video
Technical support on the phone is not helping. I cannot believe this SHOULD be happening. I'm using wifi, in my home, with a good connection to my home network. Very often (almost always), video freezes. Doesn't seem to matter whether it is youtube or playing something through a web site. Sometimes I have to tap the forward button repeatedly every half second or so. Sometimes it won't move forward even if tapping the play arrow. This cannot be right. My laptop, same network, is not having problems, with the very same videos.

Info:Thinkpad, Windows XP
