    Safari labeled as Firefox
    Since I didn't have the Safari browser but wanted the new beta, I renamed my Firefox application as Safari so that the new Safari app would override Firefox (the only way I could get the update was if there was already an application called Safari). So I was able to download Safari, but now when I open my new Safari browser, the window name shows "Firefox" rather than "Safari." How can I get it to show the correct browser name? Thanks.

    Interesting approach! So... the window is named Firefox. This is a DUMB question, but is it in fact Firefox or are you really running Safari?

    It is indeed the Safari browser that I am running :] Other websites are even detecting my browser as Safari. So it's just the title that for some weird reason reads "Firefox." But it is definitely the Safari browser! Also when I go to "About Safari.." the version is listed as "Firefox Version 3.0.3." It's so weird! In my applications folder it is listed as "," so I don't know where the misnaming is coming from. There is no trace of Firefox on my HD.

    I think you probably messed something up doing that, that's not a very good idea.

    I judge you when you use poor grammar.
