    Didn't work for everybody and it's nine months old, so it may no longer be available.

    So began experiencing this problem after reinstalling Lion (to fix other misbehavior — that did get fixed). What that landed me with was Safari 5.1.7, with (probably/likely) libraries/frameworks for 6.x, as previous to the OSX reinstall, I had had 6.x installed. And, because (it would seem — I gave up after fruitful searchings) Safari 6 is unavailable as a standalone install, I was stuck.. until I realized I use Time Machine.

     

    I "fixed" my broken Safari by restoring from my TM backup:

    • /System/Library/Frameworks/WebKit.framework
    • /System/Library/StagedFrameworks/Safari
    • /Applications/Safari.app

     

    (These restores done via: Enter Time Machine, select copy of each folder from before OSX reinstall, "Restore, replacing existing copy.)

     

    I had to first get rid of Safari.app, as Finder refused to allow me to do anything to it otherwise:

    `sudo rm -rf /Applications/Safari.app`

     

     

     

    So, there's that: Time Machine saves the day (yet again).

    Hi,

    I tried what you suggested – threw out webkit framework and webkit 2 framework, restarted and it still crashes. Had a look & found safari had both webkits back again.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks,

    Did you upgrade Safari between deleting the frameworks and restarting? That's the point. Safari absolutely puts both webkit versions in place after startup; upgrading prior to startup was key for me.

    YEs, I did do everything in the right order. This is for Lion isn't it? (Not Mountain Lion)

    Hi MadMacs0:

     

    Just tried your link without success. One only gets a 404 message saying the resource is no longer available. Thanks for trying.... :-D

  • MadMacs0 Level 5 (4,722 points)

    Not sure what's going on with that. Here's what it says:

     

    Here is an alternative solution that seems to be working for several users, especially those who have somehow managed to install more than one WebKit framework:

    1. Open Finder and navigate to: /System/Library/StagedFrameworks/Safari/

    2. Drag WebKit.framework to the trash

    3. Run software update and install Safari > do not launch safari after it is installed

    4. Restart computer

    5. Launch Safari

    Quick Fix: Download and reinstall Safari.

     

    Terminal:

    curl $(strings /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/SoftwareUpdate.framework/SoftwareUpdate | grep http://swscan) | grep Safari6

     

    Copy the URL to the relevant .pkg file

     

    Terminal:

    cd ~/Desktop (or where ever)

    curl -O <copied string>

     

    run the downloaded pkg installer.

    run software update just to double check.

    To get the correct URL do this

     

    Terminal:

    curl $(strings /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/SoftwareUpdate.framework/SoftwareUpdate | grep http://swscan) | grep Safari6

    Worked for me! Quick and easy. Thanks!

    Thank you SOOOOooooo much. This lovely and simple solution, in which I do not need to geek my way into Terminal, worked like a charm. I am ALL FIXED!
