Hi

I need to download the latest version of Safari to be able to use Itunes, and am having some trouble downloading it.

I currently have a MacBook with Mac OSX version 10.5.2, and am running Safari 3.04 on it.

I have tried to download Safari version 4.04 from the Apple website but there are only links to downloads for users with Tiger, Leopard and Snowleopard.

I would have thought I could download the version for Tiger as the requirement is Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.11 and Security Update 2009-002 or later, but it doesn't work.

I'm not actually sure if I'm currently running Leopard or Tiger but I have Expose and Spaces and I think that's only on Leopard?

Do I need to get a new operating system installed to be able to download Safari?

Thanks so much

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.2)

    HI,

    *"I have tried to download Safari version 4.04 from the Apple website but there are only links to downloads for users with Tiger, Leopard and Snowleopard."*

    You are running Leopard 10.5

    You need to be running 10.5.8 in order to download the current version of Safari.

    Download and install the 10.5.8 Combo Update available here.

    http://support.apple.com/downloads/MacOS_X_10_5_8_ComboUpdate

    Restart your Mac after the update is installed.

    Then go here and Download Safari for Leopard

    After you have installed Safari, repair disk permissions.

    Quit any open applications/programs. Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. That can be ignored. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done. Quit Disk Utility and *restart your Mac.*
