Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

How did you download a non compatible version? Did you manually find a download, and try to force it into place?

I ask because, apple software update wont install non compatible versions automatically.

Also, besides safari do you have another working browser, such as google chrome or Firefox?

I manually downloaded Safari. I am using Firefox right now.

Im here. Ive just seen your messages.

As youve found out, safari issues like this can be tough to fix when you try to install a version thats not compatible onto your system. For that reason, Im going to send an offer for remote support, where I can connect to your mac from here and work on solving this issue directly.
