Does my safari need updating?
Most likely yes. Whatever version of Safari is installed is outdated. This is because the OS that's installed is 10.6.8 (at this point a pretty old OS version). OS 10.6.8 is NOT compatible with the latest version of Safari…in fact…OS 10.6.8 is not even compatible with the previous older version of Safari.
To the best of my knowledge…Safari version 5 is the latest version compatible with OS 10.6.8. The current (newest) version of Safari is version 8 (3 versions newer). Then add to this Adobe Flash compatibility. Long story short…the latest version of Adobe Flash is not compatible with Safari 5 either.
Botton line. The version of Safari and the version of Adobe Flash on this computer (running OS 10.6.8) are outdated….possibly MUCH outdated. And the only way to resolve things is to upgrade the OS on this computer (if possible).
AND…you may not want to upgrade the OS on this computer (if it's possible)…because many other apps that may be installed on this computer may not be compatible with a newer OS version.
When you're operating with an older computer running an older OS version…eventually you run into these sort of issues.
