In the Brooder

Having some problems posting photos in personal messages, etc. using Mac. The progress bar will show being nearly fully loaded and then quits and won't load.
Please see the information here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/troubleshooting-byc-problems-bugs-error-messages-other-issues
If none of those things help, please come back to this post and reply with all the information requested in that article above, especially:
1) Which browser and version are you using (eg., Firefox 3.5.9, Internet Explorer 7, etc.)
2) Have you deleted your internet cache / browser history of files and tried again?
3) Have you tried a different browser? This allows you to test if it is a browser specific problem vs. a computer / network problem. We suggest Google Chrome or Firefox.
That's a golden oldie!I'm on 10.7.5 at the moment and was told recently can't upgrade Safari without going up either. One alternative suggestion I found was to upgrade to Yosemite. I heard mixed reviews about it though, such that the iPhoto features goes funky on it.
You may be able to get a version of FireFox that will still work o.k. for you. Otherwise, as Nifty suggested above, clear cache. I find I have to do that up to twice a week at the moment. FB loads your Mac with cookies, if you go there, and those do mess with how BYC works for me.
Quote: 3yo? You should be able to (should've been able to) upgrade for free… I think. I bought my laptop nearly 4 years ago and upgraded a few months later when they brought out the new OS. I think for you it may actually be worth spending to upgrade if it comes to that. This OS I'm on at the moment is lovely, except for the Safari situation, but I use FireFox as back-up for that.
