Safari 5: Bad

by bose on July 20, 2010

About a month ago, Eileen noticed a black background appearing in her outgoing Mail messages. This was getting to be a real pain because the MailMerge scripts began doing it as well.

This was taking up a lot of my time and finally a google search came up with this:

Safari 5 recently installed is the culprit because it “updates” WebKit so affects the underlying system.

The workaround was to reinstall Safari 4.0.5 using Pacifist, instructions here: http://appletoolbox.com/2010/06/downgrade-from-safari-5-0-to-safari-4-0-5/

This did not work in 10.6.4, so now we wait for Apple or switch to Direct mail from e3 software
