I just downloaded the new Safari 3 for Windows beta. The install seems to have gone fine, but when Safari is launched, none of the application text shows, i.e. no menus, no right-click drop down text, no url, and none of the text on the apple home page.

Any ideas? Or is this just one of those beta quirks?

MacBook Pro 2.33 C2D   Mac OS X (10.4.9)

    I'm having the same problem here

    I downloaded the full version and I have the exact same problem... the app loads, but no text across the top or menus. I can mouse over and it highlights, or even expands down where a menu would be... but nothing is written there.

    I'm having the same problem. I'm running a fully patched copy of WinXP Pro.

    Maybe we're missing a font that Safari uses? Anybody know what font Safari displays all it's application text in?

    Same Problem Here, Maybe it has to do with other languge MUI. By the way when you try to report a bug it just Crashes and sends the info to M$, Hahaha.

    By the Way (2) : I installed it on 2 computers with xp pro, and downloaded both the safari only and the safari with quicktime, No luck either Way.
    Fix this soon ! , please.

    I just installed the Safari 3 beta on a fully patched WinXP Pro SP2 computer, and I am encountering exactly the same problem with no text showing up anywhere in the UI -- neither on web pages or menus or anywhere.

    Sounds more like an Alpha than a Beta to me...

    Got it working.

    First I did the following. Open the Safari directory and found a directory called Safari.resources. I copied both Fonts that are located in that directory into windows. Closed restarted. STILL didn't work.

    I then renamed the safari.resources to something else. Load the application get an Access Violation. (Clicked twice for the fun)

    Then rename it back and ITS WORKING.

    Just sharing my experience

    Ditto! Nada! No text appears when menus are scrolled over!

    I didn't have the "no text problem". Everything seem to work fine. Even the little "poof" when you delete something from the tool bar.

    BUT.....

    My back and forward buttons on my Logitech mouse do not work.

    Also, so far I've only had one crash after using it for about 15 minutes.
  • eudorauser Level 1 Level 1
    Nice one, that worked for me too. To an extent, anyway, as most sites that it loads now mostely don't have any text on them... very odd
  • kungming2 Level 1 Level 1
    Funny, I tried that and it's still not working. No text in website nor menus.

    Even tried deleting the Lucida Grande fonts I had on my computer, and then replacing it with the ones in the Safari folder. Still no luck...
  • PhilCaetano Level 1 Level 1
    I can confirm that it works partially too... I can't see any text at mac rumors. Hoping someone can find the "real" fix to this problem. I'm sure its has to do with font/resource issue since It seem to partially work.
