    So, I got Safari 1.0 on software update last night. I cannot get any page to load.
    When I click it from the launcher or if I go to it through the harddrive nothing comes up. If I click a link in my email a Safari window comes up but it is always blank. If I type in an address or go to one of my bookmarks nothing happens. Has anyone else had this? Is there any way I can downgrade?

    This happened to me too with one of the unofficial betas, and I never did get it fixed. I ended up reinstalling the entire OS :(

    And that is why I'm sticking to officially released stuff now, and why I'm not downloading Panther even though I know where to get it from!

    Safari will not load pages here either

    Safari 1.0 is not a beta but it might as well be as I am having the same problem here. It has something to do with having multiple copies of Safari in the same computer. I deleted all the Safari.apps and after re-installing Safari it continued to freeze like before. I hope an update comes out soon.

    If you have more than one version, or if you "skipped" an update safari seems to have trouble, but when I deleted my preferences and "Reset Safari" from the Application menu, it worked fine for me.

    Yeah, this happened to me on an iBook.
    I'm going to delete all Safari files after resetng it and then re-installing it.

    Works fine on my iMac.

    I had that same problem....but after trying over and over, it seems to recognize the page I want. Try setting your desired home page in your system preferences>internet options.

    Oh yeah, does anyone have any earthly idea how to FORCE MSN messenger to use Explorer instead of Safari? IE is my default browser, but Messenger doesn't seem to care (which is a shock becuase it insists on using Safari).
