Yes, the "live Apple" page

Open Safari, click on the Safari menu and click Preferences. In Preferences, click "General" tab and under Home Page option, add this link - http://www.apple.com/startpage/

Restart Safari...let me know how it goes..

Ashik :

Hi,
I'm back..okay we can first try to reset the Preferences of Safari and see if that helps or not..

Close Safari and goto Macintosh HD/Users/[your user name]/Library/Preferences folder and move the file "com.apple.safari.plist" into desktop.

(Macintosh HD is your hard disk...)

Now open Safari..Does that worked ?

Customer:

I did as instructed above and it still does not open!

Ashik :

Trash Safari from Applications folder and download and install Safari for Tiger from here : http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.net/content.info.apple.com/Safari4/061-7785.20100311.TgrS4/Safari4.0.5Tiger.dmg

Ashik :

Let me know how it goes..

Customer:

I did as suggested....trshed app. SAfari....emptied the trash...downloaded and tried to install the new Safari from link....am getting the message that the Hard Drive will not allow installation because there is a newer version of Safari on disk. I have pulled up SAfari on Spotlight and cannot see a Safari except the dmg that I am working with

Ashik :

Hi, Sorry for the delayed response...Once you installed new Safari, its hard to downgrade and mainly it won't allow to downgrade. You can Force install Safari 4 Tiger Edition. So first download and install Pacifist (use this app to Force Install Safari) from here : http://www.charlessoft.com/Pacifist.dmg (Just use the trial version). In Pacifist, load the Safari 4 package you downloaded earlier, and Pacifist will load Safari. In Pacifist, click the Install button. If Pacifist asks the'Applications already exists, need to replace ?' choose Yes and continue. Let me know how it goes..
