Thanks for the fast reply. Some more questions:
I don't have Safari, so I no longer have a browser. How can I download Pacifist or Safari from Apple if I cannot launch a browser on that computer?
I did go to the Apple site to try to find Safari but could not locate it. Do you have a link?
Can I download the .pkg using another computer and copy it to a CD-R and transfer it to the injured computer that way?
Thanks for the advice,
Thanks for this advice. My first attempt was to try the easiest sounding solution which was to use the Software Updater to download any missing updates on that computer. Turned out that the latest combined update restored Safari. I took the added step of searching to see if there was an existing bookmark file left behind and there was. I backed that up and then applied the update.
Sure enough, it restored Safari and I then restored the bookmark file, which restored all bookmarks. Good as new.
Thanks to everyone who replied! Thank goodness for these discussion groups. They've solved more problems for me than Tech Support ever could!
Sandra, as you can tell from Niel's comments, you have no choice but to get the free Firefox browser or pay to upgrade to Mac OS 10.4.
Many of us so affected have found it necessary to complain to Yahoo's CEO. His snail mail address is:
Mr. Terry S. Semel
701 First Avenue
Sunnyvale, CA 94089
Tell him via a nice letter that you are seriously dissapointed that his company requires expensive upgrades or changes to a non-Apple-standard browser in order to use his previously otherwise excellent site. Unfortunately, due to his insistence (or ignorance), you are now forced to abandon Yahoo for sake of Google (or some similar site/serach engine/free email) service.
