Mac update broke safari?
Hi guys, our new Head has asked about the update that was available to macs last week, she claims safari was updated but scince then it wont launch?
we dont use macs of have access to them so im really unsure as to what the issue may be?

Its safari v5 that has the problem not the update itself. There is another thread on here about it.
Heads up - Safari crash for network users - DO NOT install Safari 5

Ah. I saw that original thread but didnt think much of it, then yesterday I had the problem on one mac. Reinstall was the only solution. Thankfully most others are either 10.6 or they already use firefox instead. Will advise people just in case though

There is a fix, which I can tell you did work for me, but I only applied it to my own machine as that was the only one I had fortunately updated, so not knowing your setup, I can't guarantee it will work for you.

You should then find Safari will launch.
