Hi,

 

Has anyone else found that the link for the Safari Update 5.1.10 listed in the support downloads page actually links to 5.1.9?

 

I'm trying to download the package to deploy over a network. Didn't really want to login to each machine to install manually via the software updates option becasue there are lots of them...

 

Thanks

 

CWJ

    Hi ...

     

     

    There is no 5.1.10   Only 5.1.9 for Snow Leopard >  Safari 5.1.9 for Snow Leopard

    Link to Safari 5.1.10:

    Ok guys, thanks for the replies but if you actually look at the page title it displays 5.1.9. As for 5.1.10 not being being released yet... I have 175 iMac's runing 10.6.8 OS X all saying your wrong asking to download 5.1.10

     

    Thanks guys, but please check first before your replies...

    Click on Download on my link and you will get Safari 5.1.10 for Snow Leopard. That is also the page title.

     

    It is also listed on the main Apple Download page:

     

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

     

    No idea where you are looking.

    5.1.10 is available in Software Update on Snow Leopard (as is Security Update 2013-004).

  • cwjones73 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Nope sorry, your all wrong. Please check before you reply.

     

    The download is listed on the "Newly designed" software updates page as 5.1.10, click the link to obtain the software and you'll discover it actually links to the page displaying 5.1.9 and therefore has a link to 10.1.9.

     

    I've just deployed and installed this download to the whole network, as read the same way most have you have done, just expecting it to download the 5.1.10 version as the first page suggests, instead on further inspection its 5.1.9.

     

    Please give me some credit here guys, I've been doing this sort of thing for some time... and I know when Apple make a blunder, to frequently in my experience.

    Yes - Software Update had it first, before it was listed at Downloads, and that initially went to 5.1.9, as you noted.

    It seems that the Apple site took a little longer to update, and user/isp caches may have extended that for some.

  • Klaus1 Level 8 Level 8 (46,490 points)

    Strange that I was able to download Safari 5.1.10 from the link I first gave you.

  • cwjones73 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thank you andyball!

     

    Well in the UK over a BT network it still links from the supposed named hyperlink 5.1.10, actually linking to the page displaying 5.1.9.

     

    Can anyone else please confirm this... or am I going crazy mad?

  • Klaus1 Level 8 Level 8 (46,490 points)

    or am I going crazy mad?

    Seems so!

     

    I downloaded it via BT Broadband all the way to Somerset!

  • andyBall_uk Level 7 Level 7 (20,490 points)

    not on BT, but in England - the main page links to DL1569, which links to this

    http://support.apple.com/downloads/DL1569/en_US/Safari5.1.10SnowLeopardManual.dmg

    It sounds as if 1569 has a stale cache somewhere on the way to you. Do also look for

    Security Update 2013-004 (Snow Leopard)

  • cwjones73 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I've figured it out why you are all sugesting it works fine.

     

    You've all been clicking the blue link on the first of the software updates page.

     

    Try clicking the actual Safari Logo on the updates page, I'll put my lottery ticket on it that it links to 5.1.9... how crazy mad is that!

  • Roger Wilmut1 Level 9 Level 9 (71,305 points)

    You're correct about the download page: http://support.apple.com/downloads/ has a link claiming to be to 5.1.10, which leads to http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1569 which is 5.1.9.

     

    The downloads page also has a 'Download' link but this says '5.1.10SnowLeopardManual'... as it's an installer I haven't tried to check whether it actually is the manual (it's 50MB for what that's worth, so it likely actually is Safari - I suppose they mean manual install?).

     

    Software Update has, as I said, the correct version - or anyway it claims to, I haven't actually tried installing it yet.

    After downloading the two updates that Roger shows above, safari 5.1.10 and Security update 2013-004, it messed up my outlook 2011. I cannot reply, forward or create a new email message. I downloaded safari again just now and no version is showing for the 2nd dowloaded safari under installed software, but my about safari is saying .10. How do I get my outlook to work?? thanks!
