Are you uber excited for the new Safari 4 beta from Apple? However, on install all it does is bounce and crash? I’ve been having the issue under 10.5.6 and the fix is simple; remove your Safari addons!
Step 1 – Uninstall Safari 4 beta and revert back to Safari 3. If you still have Safari 3, then you’re good to go.
Note: You don’t have to reinstall Safari 3, it should just come back when you uninstall Safari 4 beta.
Step 2 – Go to Safari -> Preferences and look for any addons like…
Step 3 – Go to the official site for any addons and see if there is an update or if there are any compatibility issues with Safari 4. Or just uninstall the addon.
Step 4 – Install Safari 4 beta.
This time, everything should work fine. It did for me. 🙂
Are you uber excited for the new Safari 3 beta from Apple?
Reverting back to the 3 beta huh?? 🙂
Anyway, I tried safari 4 beta on windows, seems smooth, but crashes on gmail, same problem on macs??
Darn typos. It’s fixed now. And I’ve had no crashes on my Mac related to websites.
thanks for your tip!
After reinstalling the Safari addons, i had fun with safari 4 beta!
It worked fine for me for almost a week.. since this morning, it has already twice..:(
How to uninstall Safari 4? Simply drag and drop into trash will do? Would I still be having safari 3? I did not delete safari 3 before installing 4.
Re-download Safari 4. One of the options in the installer is to uninstall. It’ll then put Safari 3 back in it’s place.
It’s not necessarily obvious how you uninstall Safari 4 to roll back to 3.2.1. Here’s how:
By the way — if you’re having problems with Safari 4 Public Beta then it may be worth trying it with the latest WebKit loaded. Here’s how to do that — written for people who have a particular problem, but potentially valid as a fix for other problems as well:
I downloaded the newest version of Safari (4.0) last night. Now I find out that it has totally messed up
my entire e-mail system. I cannot send any e-mails. I can only receive them.
Is there an easy way to go back to my old Safari ?? Help.
I think this is an MSN problem. I have no choice now on my e-mail provider. I am stuck with MSN.
As noted above, re-download Safari 4. One of the options in the installer is to uninstall. It’ll then put Safari 3 back in it’s place.
Thanks for all of your suggestions. I am sure glad you all are out there to help.
The only thing that ended up working for me was to install my old OS-X.
It gave me back my old safari and my e-mail worked fine again.
Apple Safari takes more resources compared to Opera and Firefox. sometimes it also freezes so i would still stick to Opera.
Safari 4 is a bit slow compared to either Opera and Firefox. but i like the interface and graphics of Safari 4, it is cool though.
