A few months ago, my Safari browser up and quit. I've tried to download a new copy (as per instructions in several forums) but no luck there (same problem). I've since tried Firefox, Opera and Camino but none of them make me happy like Safari did.

 

I have a 2008 Intel MacBook; OS 1.6.8 (Snow Leopard). No idea what happened or why. Other than that my computer works fine. I tried to delete Safari and download a new copy but that didn't work either. Since then I've tried to use Firefox, Opera and Camino. None of them come close to Safari, imo.

 

I would love to have Safari back. Any advice would be appreciated.

Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    In the affected account, go to Safari > Preferences > Security and deselect the box next to: Enable plug ins

     

    Quit and relaunch Safari. If it doesn't quit, follow the instructions for troubleshooting third party add ons here.

    WOW, i have safari 6.0.1 with Mountain Lion and I unchecked the box next to the plug-in and it worked perfectly. Now I can watch youtube videos!!! Wonder why though?

    You may have a third party plugin installed that was preventing video content from streaming.

     

    Possibly ClickToFlash ...   When you deselect:  Enable plugins

     

    That disables all plugins which is used mainly for troubleshooting.
