How can I reinstall Safari if one got corrupted?
I tried that but it wouldn't install.
I had this problem in Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. I downloaded the latest version from Apple, but the installer said that I had a newer version already installed. I had to use the application called Pacifist. It installs applications when the installer won't. It worked great.
That works for me on OSX Lion with all updates:
- downoad latest Safari. Image with safari will mount automatically when download is complete otherwise you should click on it to get it mounted.
- backup existing Safari (the one that you want to replace)
remove existing Safari using Terminal:
sudo rm -rf /Applications/Safari.app/
just install it as usual application
