Lately I've tried (unsuccessfully) to connect to several different vendor-links from the green pages. Not sure how prevalent the problem is but thought I should report it.

I don 't recall all the companies I've tried but here's the last one:

I had another user report this to me but he was the only one so I couldn't figure out what might be causing the problem.

So, what happens when you try to visit their site?

This has happened to me recently too but I just thought it might be a glitch with my laptop. I just tried the first one on the list (A Backyard Farm) and got a message something like:

"Safari can't connect to the server because Safari can't find the server "local host."

Shrug!
I started going through the Green Pages, starting with A, to see if some are not working.

I guess it's an "Internet Explorer" problem because when I try from Firefox the link works.

If you could replicate the problem and then send me a screenshot of the resulting error that would be great. Failing that, an exact quote of the error would be second best.

My message was similar from Internet Explorer, something like it couldn't find the page.

I'm logged in using Chrome right now and every one I click on works fine.

Dave: LOL, I have something in the dock on my laptop that says ScreenCaptureX and I tried to use it but I got some error message saying it had to shut down.

Using Safari I tried the link for Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co. and this is how the message reads word for word:

Safari can't connect to the server. ?
Safari can't open the page "http://localhost//rareseeds.ccom/" because Safari can't connect to the "local host".

Probably IE and Safari because they are so ancient. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

I will try logging on with Firefox now and see what happens.

These are not working:
Algoflash World Record Breaking Liquid Fertilizer
Benedict's Nursery

And where did this one come from?


I did all of the A's and B's. Sorry it took me so long, I keep getting side tracked. This is going to be a great winter past time, visiting all these sites. Thumbs up

I really need to delete Safari from my laptop and use Firefox or Chrome. I know, I know ... my husband is always telling me to forget Safari and use Firefox or Chrome. I guess it's just age; ya know it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks ... or to get them to listen. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Same result I got on Benedict's Nursery.
I'm wondering if we should all take specific letters of the alphabet and check them all out?
