I just bought a brand new macbook pro with an Intel Core i7 proessor. I've been told to 'Get Info' on Safari and "Open Using Rosetta but there is no such box to tick when I follow these steps. I only have one box to tick, which is "Open using 32 bit". What do I do? Seems strange that I have missing plug-ins on websites given it's a brand new machine?


MacBook Pro (15-inch Core 2 Duo), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

If it's new your running Lion (10.7.x - see, under the Apple, About This Mac). Rosetta was an emulator that allowed PPC apps to run and is now longer supported under Lion. You probably have some browser plug-ins that need to be updated.

    Thanks for the insight, you're right! I'm on Lion. Do you happen to know how I update my plug-ins? I did a software update for Safari, but it hasn't rectified the issue.

    Open your Library folder on your hard drive and look for a folder called "Internet Plug-ins" - here's a screen shot of mine...

    Most of your browser plug-ins should be 2011-2012 (hunh! Looks like I have some cleaning to do!). If you see anything older, just put them in Disabled Plug-ins. Restart Safari and see what happens.
