OS X :: When Go To Install Safari Now It Says This Disk Already Has A Newer Version Of Safari Installed?
Nov 24, 2008
so i installed a dev preview of safari 4, but now want to switch back. i deleted the old safari, but when i go to install safari now it says this disk already has a newer version of safari installed. what can i do?
I tried the new version (or what is supposed to be the new version of Safari for Tiger, but it loads as Safari 4.1 Tiger, and will not install because it says there is a newer version installed already. What is Apple doing? Did they simply rename version 4.1 as 4.1.2 and expect it to install?
I've been a Mac user for a few years now, and really love the apps on the Mac, and 99% of the time, never need anything thats on Windows. However, the time has come that I need to open a windows app via Darwin. Its asking me to install x11.app - which I've tried to do, but when I download it, it says there is already a newer version installed. I've never heard of, let alone installed x11.app before, so this confused me a little.
I've come onto these forums, and had a little search, to which I found out that you need to do something with the original OS disks to install x11.app via the install disk. I no longer have the install disks - I moved house 6 months ago, and had 3 boxes lost in transit, (Including my PS3, nearly 50 games a DVD player and all CD's / DVD's ) - and have never recovered them.
Is there any other way I can get this app to install?
When I try to install QuickTime, I get the message "newer version of QuickTime already installed". I uninstalled QuickTime. I have also gone into the registry and deleted all references regarding QuickTime. I really don't want to have to reinstall Windows just to be able to install QuickTime. I have used QuickTime for years and want to use it again.
Safari from version 5.1 is bugged... so i want to install older versions on my Macbook Pro mid 2010.Versions like Safari v5.05, 5.06.And Lion block the Safari 5.06 installer with a message wich say "this software need x I have tried to install it manually by extracting the .pkg or with Pacifist, and when i tried to launch Safari 5.06, same problem... Software is blocked.
I have installed Safari 5.0 on my brand new macbook and it is massively slower than version 4.0.5. It's taking up to 10 seconds to access some websites. How can I uninstall it? (Should I uninstall it?)
Ok, Here is the scoop. I am trying to get Wifi to work on my macbook while on XP. When I put in the disk and it says "The package requires a newer version of Windows Installer. Would you like to update?" I say yes and it says "The requires resoruce update is missing." and if I click no it says "The operation is aborted." or something.
mac os x version 10.5.8 - safari version 5.0.6 safari will shut down sometimes, a small window pops up, it reads your adobe flash player 10.4/10.5 may be the problem. i've been to adobe for help & got nowhere
I searched for a while trying to find the answer but did not find it. I just installed Vista Business via Bootcamp. I am not able to access the internet or anything. If I read the help stuff right I need to use the OSX install disk to install the drivers. The problem is, I don't have the install disk. Is there any other way to get the drivers? Or am I just missing something easier?
Many extensions on extensions.apple.com cannot be installed.However, extensions that I installed before, no problem, such as AdBlock, Bing, Echofon. Others, will not install, it will be stuck at installing. And Safari may lose response after a while. I initially noticed that if I try to install YouTube5 which I downloaded myself, Safari will immediately lose response.
- Reset Safari - Run OnyX - Repair disk permissions - Deleting all the extensions; extensions I installed before will install, others won't - Deleting Clicktoflash and Glims
I only update my web site a few times a year, and since the last time I bought a new computer and have a newer version of iweb. When I try to update my web site (on mobileme), it builds all of the pages and then gives an unknown error and fails. I also can't use the file menu/visit site, which indicates to me that it doesn't recognize my domain as the same site.
I work in an office where we've picked up a few new MBPs. These machines have Snow Leopard and I'd like to install it on my machine running Leopard. Is there any way that I can install 10.6 on my machine using the Disks that came with the new machines?
I have an important database created on my Mac using an old version of Filemaker II. (Version 1.1v2 1989) Since I have gone to OSX, the old program will not work on my newer Intel Mac. I am trying to find out how to convert the old files to a newer version of FileMaker that will allow me to read and add to the file.
I have a version 6.0 and 9.0 of Filemaker Pro, but neither will allow me to read the old database. Might have to step up from version to version and convert. We are at wits end and desperately need some expert help! Can anyone tell me how to do this. Files are a listing of 20+ years of articles and photos connected with a small magazine my wife and I publish.
I still have my older Mac OsXv10.4 Tiger software. I wasn't exactly happy with Safari browser as it would block many sites and were considered incompatible so I downloaded the free Firefox browser (the 2.0 version) of which I still have. I'm aware that there is a much newer version and would like to download that, but I've heard a lot of people saying they have been having severe problems with it, but then they have PCs and not Macs. So my question is for you Mac users that use Firefox, have you had major problems with the newer version? I'm real hesitant to download if I'm going to have the same problem PC users are having...like constantly crashing. Also would my old Tiger software be compatible? I don't want to upgrade to Leopard.
Im trying to update my ITunes on my MAC (laptop) to the newer version so I can then be able to update the latest updates for my Iphone-3G. I don’t require a complete reinstall just need to be able to update my itunes.
What I have tried so far is I had my MAC search for update’s and it said that I should update to (ITunes version 10 . 6 . 3 ) So I asked it to do the update but after 2hrs of waiting for it to download/update it then puts up a message saying the following- (In order to continue installation, please close the following application: ITunes).
When I tried to do this another message comes up that says- (The update ITunes can’t be installed. The following install step failed: run preupgrade script for Apple mobile device support. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance.)
I have also tried to run the update while having closed ITunes before I even start the update but the same problem happens after waiting about 2hrs.
Some one that had the same problem said this might be happening in the older operating systems. But that does not make sense because surely Apple want customers who own a MAC and i-phone to still buy from iTunes.
My MAC is about 4-5years old. I have a i-phone.3G,
I have QB 4 for Mac and works just fine. Does anyone know how to move date to a newer version of QB for a PC? I used to be able to back-up data to a QB for PC (2001 version) but I am no longer able to accomplish this. QB tech support is of "0" help.
I tried to install a new version of osx into my laptop. Everything runs smoothly until after I choose the language I prefer. The computer then tells me that the disk is no good for this computer. I can't seem to get past this window at all, no matter what I do. I've held down apple "s" which then shows me "-sh-3.2#". What does this mean? And how can I get back into my computer? Thx
Looking for some advice as to how to find my iTunes library as I just installed iLife 08 with iTunes in the package but when I click on iTunes to load it up it comes back with this message "The file iTunes Library cannot be read because it was created with by a newer version of iTunes". Don't understand this. Now when I go into iDVD to create a new DVD and click on 'audio' I can see my old list of iTunes.
Anyone know how I could go about finding this and bringing this into the new iTunes 8 which was loaded with iLife 8. I'm almost 70 years old and not quite up to speed you might say. My problem re this is a lot of the library songs which were on iLIfe 6 version of iTunes belong to my daughter who does not have the internet so she comes over and uses mine for her iTunes downloads.

What version Safari should I be using with 10.5.8? I've got version 5.0.6 and was told by Ad Block I needed a newer version.That was right after I updated Ad Block for Safari and lost 75% of my home page.That is, it no longer appears after updating.
I'm running Safari 5.0.2 on a 15" Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard 10.6.6. I'm having issues with some sites so wish to try another version of Safari to see if that will help. I downloaded versions 5.0.2 (just for safety if I had to return to it), 5.0.3 and 5.1.1, all of which said they were compatible with Snow Leopard. When I attempt to install 5.0.3 it says it cannot install as it needs OS version 10.6.5 When I attempt to install 5.1.1 it says it cannot install as it needs OS version 10.6.7 Even when I attempt to install 5.0.2 it says it cannot install as it needs OS version 10.6.4 What Gives? Is there a version of Safari out there that will install onto OS 10.6.6? Is there a version of Safari out there that will install onto OS 10.6.6?
Every time I open Safari (5.0.6) on Mac OS X (Version 10.5.8) it crashes. It crashes 30 seconds after I open the application. So I open Safari, I see my homepage than roughly around 30 seconds later it crashes. I have already uninstall every third plug-ins such as adobe flash player, but still the same.
I'm running Safari 1.3.2 (v312.6) on a G4 with OS 10.3.9. Safari used to be great but seems to be slowly dying (e.g. can't move to next page on eBay, can't pay on eBay). I am having to use Firefox but don't like it. Is there anything I can do to resurrect my old mate (apart from lashing out on new hardware)?
Is there a Safari 5 download for Version 10.4.11?I have Safari 4 now on my iMac and I like it. I would like to upgrade it to Safari 5.I had Safari 4 on my 5 yr. old Toshiba and on a newer Asus netbook and upgraded to Safari 5 with no problems. I save lot of links and l am used to saving and retrieving data from Safari. I like a couple changes that are on Safari 5 and would like to get them on my iMac.
I recently got a mac with the version 10.4 on it. I want to use the itunes store but it says that it requires the safari 4.0.3 or higher version on it. But when I try to download this version it says it requires mac 10.5 in order to run. Is there a version of Safari 4.0.3 for mac 10.4?
I upgraded an iMac G5 to Tiger. Safari crashes often and does not support many new web sites, particularly those requiring Flash. I have tried Opera and Camino both of which have problems when Flash is required.
I searched this site, and can't seem to locate help; also googled my problem with little result. I downloaded and (I thought) installed Safari AdBlock (the file name is 0.4.0 RC3.pkg in the Downloads folder). I've done this probably 4 times, and I can't find any reference to the application anywhere on my computer, nor in Safari itself. There's a little open box with an emerging yellow cube in Downloads - Safari AdBlock. I double click, it installs, then it seems to end there. Can't find it. Safari still shows ads, so I don't think it's working, and I can't find AdBlock to try and amend settings.
Used Adblock in leopard and am sure there was an option for it in preferences, now running SL and I have installed the latest version of Adblock but can not seem to verify if it is installed or not and there is no option for it any more.
