Any particular reason that you wish to have Safari 4 on your machine over Safari 5? Downgrading can be problematic but you can download it here if you'd like to try. You'll likely run into an error saying that you have a newer version installed and you won't be able to continue the install.

Several posts on the Apple forums suggest these instructions work well:
Downgrade from Safari 5.0 to Safari 4.0.5 | AppleToolbox - Tools and Fixes for Mac OS X, iPad, iPhone and iPad

I'm a little confused. You say that it isn't opening but you also say that Safari is showing that it's version 4.0.5 (implying that it opened).

That info is available with Get Info.

I'd like to come in on this thread with a similar situation. I have Tiger OS and Safari 4.1.1. I want to revert to v 4.1 because it worked better.

I've posted my queries here http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/os-...de-safari.html, but answers are not exactly streaming in.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but as I understand it, the "later version already installed" warning arises from the receipts. If not there, it may be in preferences.

My suggestion - and I confess I haven't yet tried it - is to search receipts and preferences, trash any Safari ones, also the application. Reboot, and then see what happens when you try to install an earlier version of Safari.

The Archive & Install method of dealing with the issue is, to my mind, pretty drastic. I certainly don't want to go that far, I'd rather put up with Safari 4.1.1.

Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
