Restore previous Safari version from .SafariArchive.tar.gz
Authored by: Mac108 on Aug 02, '11 07:04:54AM

Someone else posted this same hint, but with a slight difference.

He said that after unpacking the archived file and recovering Safari 5.0.5

"There is no need to replace the newer framework files with the older versions. Both versions of Safari can be used side-by-side and run at the same time."

Does this sound safe?

Restore previous Safari version from .SafariArchive.tar.gz

I'm fairly certain I had tried the 'easy way' by unpacking the app and trying to run it with the newer frameworks, but it didn't help what I was trying to solve. Only by restoring the frameworks as well, was I then able to get this Java app to load that was stalling in 5.1 (which the Java devs have now fixed on there end). Anyway the simpler method of restoring only the app might work in some cases... BTW What's the link for that hint?
