Question: Safari Will Not Open

When I click on Safari in dock I get no response. I tried to open when pressing and holding on dock and nothing—no bounce or response. I can’t open from Launch Pad as well. What’s up?

#5 did the trick. Apparently it’s a know issue relating to the most recent Safari update. Actually did not realize it affected my iTunes as well (updated same time). Reinstalling to OS solved the Safari problem and once Safari was up and running I had to download iTunes. All is good now. Thanks.
