    Same issue here with Safari 6 on Lion.  Too bad we can't roll back the 6 installation.  I saw elsewhere that folks who have access to the 5.1.7 package (time machine backup etc.) can bring that back, put it in another directory and it'll run fine (leaving v6 where it is).

    Same issue for me on Safari 6 on 10.8.
    Hopefully it is just a bug, not a "feature"

     

    Have reported it via www.apple.com/feedback

    Just as a stopgap for those that can. 

     

    I copied the Safari v5.1.7 package from a Snow Leopard Mac and dropped it into a folder called (old Safari), which I had to create, in the Applications directory on my Lion Mac.  Launched it, it works great, page updating is showing again (in the v5.1.7 package of course).

     

    Till there's security issues or a fix to 6.0, this will be what I'm using for the time being - drove me nuts today looking at the Top Pages and no page updates showing up - funny how dependent we get on little stuff like this.

    I am another user with Mountain Lion and Safari 6 with the same issue of no blue stars for Top Sites.  There still is no one on this string who has said that this feature works with Mountain Lion and Safari 6.  I suppose it remains only to find out whether this was intentional on Apple's part.

    I too have noticed that the blue stars are no longer showing up.  I'm running Safari 6 (from software update), but still on OS X Lion (10.7.4)

    Sorry to hear the copy v5.1.7 doesn't work on Mountain Lion ambs, that really stinks - seems like v5.1.7 isn't compatible with Mountain Lion, only Lion. 

     

    Rats...so much for a get through solution for everybody.

    Same here.

    MacBook Pro (mid 2009), Mountain Lion.

     

    Hope they fix it soon. Top Sites is probably one of my most used features and the page curl flag is a great timesaver. Would like this on the iPad in iOS 6 if possible...

    Same problem for me, with MBP 7,1 (10.8) and Mac Pro 1,1 (10.7). My iMac 12,1 is still running Lion and Safari 5 and I get the stars on updated Top Sites thumbnails. Won't upgrade to 10.8 until this is sorted out.

    I haven't seen any reporting on this issue, so don't know if it is working for anybody with Safari 6, or if most people don't use Top Sites so don't notice it. I use it as my home page so I'm missing it terribly.

    Since I'm not hearing a thing about this issue on the Apple tech sites and Apple doesn't officially watch these forums....and the blue page curl with the star indicator is not being highlighted or shown on the Apple Safari page anymore, I'm a little afraid it'll die in silence - and I don't want to loose this cool feature.

     

    I'd encourage everyone who wants this feature working in Safari v6 (and beyond) to file a user bug report (Feedback Type Dropdown select "Bug Report") here (its a short process, less than 10 mins):

     

    http://www.apple.com/feedback/safari.html

     

    More visibility that people want this fixed can only be a good thing at this point.

     

    Does anyone know of another browser that offers this functionality?  I'm thinking we're kind of stuck if Apple drops it.

    Interesting that the feedback page is ignorant of 10.8.

    "Interesting that the feedback page is ignorant of 10.8."

     

    I know, right, doesn't give a great feel that these things are being kept up to date - hopefully someone actually looks at the entries.
