Check Your Internet Connection
Before proceeding with any troubleshooting steps, ensure that your Mac is connected to the internet. Check if other websites are loading correctly, and if not, try resetting your internet connection. If your internet is working fine, move on to the next step.
Clear Cache and Cookies
Clearing the cache and cookies of your browser can often resolve issues related to webpage loading. To do this, go to Microsoft Edge’s Preferences > Privacy and Security > Clear Browsing Data. Check the boxes for “Cached Images and Files” and “Cookies and other site data” and hit Clear.
Extensions installed on your browser can sometimes interfere with webpage loading. Try disabling all the extensions and check if the webpage loads. If the webpage loads after disabling the extensions, enable them one by one to identify the problematic one.
Reset Microsoft Edge
If none of the above steps work, resetting Microsoft Edge might fix the issue. To do this, go to Microsoft Edge’s Preferences > Profile > Reset Settings. This will reset your browser settings to default.
Update Microsoft Edge
Ensure that your Microsoft Edge browser is up to date. Updates often come with bug fixes that can resolve webpage loading issues. To update, go to Microsoft Edge’s Preferences > About Microsoft Edge. If an update is available, click on “Update” to install it.
Check Firewall Settings
Firewall settings on your Mac can sometimes block Microsoft Edge from connecting to the internet. Check if Microsoft Edge is allowed through your firewall settings. To do this, go to System Preferences > Security and Privacy > Firewall > Firewall Options. Ensure that Microsoft Edge is checked and allowed.
Restart Your Mac
If none of the above steps work, try restarting your Mac. Restarting can resolve any temporary issues and refresh your system.
