I downloaded Safari 5.0.5 (5533.21.1) some months ago. All went well until I tried to boot it up for the first time. I have a MacBookPro (2007) Build 9L30, version 10.5.8. This "new" version of safari would not fully open but remains partially open. This version shows the blue activity highlite moving from left to right, and it covers "http"; thereafter without any blue highliting, the caption reads "://www.apple.com/startpage/". Nothing I do will allow this brownser to get up and go.The Page remains about half-sized. I have deleted it and re-downloaded it a few times. I took it into the closest Mac Genius Bar and I got a rather incomprehensible description of what may have happened: apparently a download can, occasionally, mess up the structure of the OS and change it to the extent that it will need to be clean installed. That sounded extremely complicated. I gave up PC's and bought into Macs (my family now have three macbookpros) just to avoid complicated screw-ups. I am going to visit another Genius soon but thought I would ask you geniuses out there if you can help me out. I think I am not getting some updates from Apple because of the non-functioning Safari. Any helpful thoughts?
