    :confused: all of a sudden i am getting pages .i.e ebay,paypal etc which do not show pictures just little blue boxes with a ? if i am right, it also shows rss feed not true website? I am also having messages to many sites saying safarie cannot verify server identity. Facebook wont log me in, just keeps coming up with 'you need to log in to view profile' even though i keep entering the correct details. I did mangae to log in once by not clicking the box 'keep me logged in' .having said that it does not log me out anyway even when i switch my ipad off. I have not changed any settings and i have gone through all the general and safari settings but cant see anything that connets with this problem.
    Please can anyone help.

    I get that silly blue box with a ? in it sometimes. I get it on my computer in Photobucket at times.:mad:

    I am going to bump your thread to iPad Help section ~

    Good Luck!

    The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    Thanks Tim. I have done all those things you mentioned but to no avail . I also power down my ipad every night (don't know if this is right or wrong) . I put the ipad to sleep during the day.
    I have reset the network, reset the ipad and apart from doing a factory reset i dont know what else to do

    So ~ just to recap ~ simply ~

    You held down the power button and the home button until the Apple logo appears?

    Then let it reboot?

    Powering down the iPad is good - no worries there. Can you tell us what your Settings for Safari are in the iPad's native 'Settings' app - for example, do you have JavaScript turned on? (Don't send us any confidential information, of course). Are you running on WiFi or 3G?

    We'll keep trying things until we get this fixed - so don't worry!! You'll get fed up with us before we get fed up with you!!! :D

    In safari settings, do you have JavaScript on? Some sights need that. Also make sure you "allow" cookies from visited web sites. This might help.

    Hi, a couple of quick questions to clarify things a bit :) are you connecting via a wireless connection in your home? If so, and you have a wireless router, try this:

    Power off the router, wait 1 minute, then power it back on again.

    Wait for the router to re-establish it's connection, then try your iPad again ( you may have to power off and on again to)

    Post back with results :)

    My first guess would be if this has something to do with pages using https:// instead of http:// but that shouldn't affect images.

    It's starting to sound like maybe it's Safari. Do you have another browser (like Atomic, or something)? You could try that on some of the same sites.
    What version of iOS do you have? Have you updated lately?

    This is pretty weird, I'm running out of ideas. I'm not that proficient in web diagnosis.
    Just for giggles, have you tried using 3G? (if you've got it)
    Or maybe trying from a friends wifi? (even though your iPhone works, the iPad can be finicky sometimes)

    I am having the same issue since today. My Ipad app doesn't allow me to log in. And on some sites such as facebook, I get the Server Identity error and no images. When I look in in the debug console it shows like 26 errors, all connected with Javascript... Any ideas?

    May I copy this backwards and glue it to my forehead so I can read it in the mirror? Super basic. Thanks.

    I meant to post that yesterday, while cleaning up my neighbor's MBP, I got the same "server identity" request on Firefox, accessing Google.
