after updating to 10.5.7 and SF4 beta 2 , flash content doesn't work properly on my macbook.

But my macbook seems faster and snappier after installing 10.5.7

then run SW Update again and install Safari 3.2.3

fixes everything as 3.2.3 is the successor to the 4.beta

Check to see if your flash is up to date. I'm on 10.5.7 & Safari 4b2 and flash works ok here.

In June 2008, Apple released version 3.1.2.
A public beta of Safari 4 was released on February 24, 2009.
Apple released a patch for this exploit and others on May 12th 2009 in version 3.2.3.
Safari 3.2.3 is included in the Mac OS X v10.5.7 Update.
Safari 3.2.3 for Tiger (http://support.apple.com/downloads/Safari_3_2_3_for_Tiger)




You can read all about it here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safari_(web_browser)#History_and_development) ... god knows I hate to post a wiki link to demonstrate a point but my fingers are too cold .....

But Safari 4 Beta was updated as well. So where does this fit with your 3 = 4 theory?

a) its very simple logic. 4 is a bigger number than 3. Do you see how that works?

b) Apple released the Safari 4 Public Beta Security Update on May 12th. About the Safari 4 Public Beta Security Update (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3551)

c) Despite what you may somehow believe, the 10.5.7 update only installs Safari 3.2.3 if you are currently using Safari 3. If you were actually using the Safari 4 Beta, you would know this.

I can post links to Wikipedia too. Look at the bottom of the Mac version table.

Safari (web browser) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safari_(web_browser)#Mac)

Do you understand yet that 4 is greater (i.e. AFTER) 3?

So Mac OSX 10.4.11 was the successor to Mac OSX 10.5.0?

Since 10.5.7 my mac has been annoying!! It's not as smooth. I feel there is a string that is being pulled every now and then. It's not even working with my Mozy account. :(

Anyone worked out whether the new beta fixes the incompatibility with GrowlMail?

Perhaps halledise just meant that it was a newer build than the 4 beta he was referring to, they are fixing bugs and maintaining both versions, so it would make sense that the 3 is more stable than the 4 beta. Although if they updated the 4 beta as well and that doesn't fix it, why not roll back to that which works :p

It makes sense that 3.x is more stable than 4.x because 4 is still a BETA.

10.5.7 updated Flash Player too btw, not sure if this is related to your Safari 4 beta problems. Does it work in Firefox?
