I installed Mac OS 10.7.4 on my MBP last night, along with Safari 6. I was leery about installing Safari 6, but I figured I could cope with the changes. But, after using it for about 30 minutes I want Safari 5.1.7 back.
My "plan of attack" was to download the 5.1.7 installer, delete Safari 6, and install Safari 5.1.7. After the installer finished downloading I ran
sudo rm -rf /Applications/Safari.app. As expected that deleted the application file. However, when I opened the 5.1.7 package installer I get the following error.
I decided that the best way to get Safari 5.1.7 back was to reinstall Mac OS 10.7.4. But before I run the install I have a couple of questions.
- Is the "Client Combo" edition the wrong thing?
- Will it attempt to install 10.7.4 incorrectly?
- Is there a better way of deleting Safari 6 and installing 5.1.7?
