I tried the ways i know:

  1. Get Info - 32bit Mode - Start ==> runs in 64 bit

  2. arch -i386 /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/MacOs/Safari ==> results in error

is it still somehow possible to run Safari in 32bit ? I need it in order to work with ManyCam which can only operate in 32bit.

No, Lion abandoned 32-bit application mode.

  • thats what i thought, strange that it offers the option to select 32bit mode Commented Dec 3, 2012 at 9:36
