How Do I Remove An Update?
Hi Everyone!
I installed the update for Safari to bring it to version 4.1 on my Macbook Pro running OSX 10.4.11 Immediately after installing the update, all kinds of goofy stuff is happening. Most notably, "Server Not Found" errors. (I've got a post about that one here.)

I absolutely can't find an answer on how to solve this (& some other) problems that started after the Safari update. So, is there a way to remove an update & go back to the old (reliable) version?

Thank you all very much,

If you are using an application such as AppTrap or AppDelete, simply drag Safarti icon from Applications folder to Trash, empty it, download and install version 4.0.5:-

Safari 4.0.5 (Snow Leopard, Leopard, Tiger, Windows)

I have the same Problem. I have been researching the last 3 days on a fix, and so far nothing works, for me. I see there are alot with the problem. Worse than a beta. All I could find is go back to what I had before the Update.

Bird and Rick - now is a good time to get your Back up scene sorted then when u have these issues, it is dead easy to revert to latest back up.

Thanks All for the help ideas.
I'll try to ditch Safari & Re-Install- But a previous version.
I wonder if my bookmarks will vanish when I ditch Safari?
I do have a clone of my hard drive. Can I yank from it?
thanks Again,

Before you do that Bird - try downloading and installing this - it may sort things for you.

Thanks For The Tip Colin!
I downloaded the dmg just now. But, before I install it-
I'm already running 10.4.11 Will installing it goof things up, or simply put me back to the Safari that worked?
Will I lose my bookmarks? (Assuming I would lose the bookmarks- Sadly, my latest back up includes the new Safari) So if I use the file to return my bookmarks, would I also be restoring the Evil Safari along with them?
Thanks Again,
