    For the past few days, Safari repeatedly gets about 25% of the way into loading a page and gets stuck. No problems with the same page in Windows or Android browsers or even Firefox on the iPad. Am I alone is is this a common, unwelcome problem? Any suggestions as to what the problem might be?

    I don't have this problem, just a suggestion: did you try to reset your iPad (Home and Power button ...) when this occurs?

    There's something else that I found that might help:
    As soon as Safari gets stuck, press the Power button until your see "Slide to power off". Release it and press the Home button for a few seconds (5 - 10 perhaps). Either you'll end on your homescreen or in Safari itself. If you're on your homescreen, open Safari again. It should load the site quickly now.

    Hope that helps.

    Another thing you might want to check into is to restart or reboot your router. It may help.

    Resetting the iPad serms to hqve fixed the problem, thanks. Safar seems to be generally faster now. Perhaps it was an "out of memory" issue.

    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    I suppose Safari is in Private mode. To change this, tap the address/search bar. You'll find "Private" on your keyboard:

    Tap it, then Safari should end Private browsing.

    Hope that helps.
