Safari problem

Post by alansue4 » December 12th, 2015, 2:41 pm

I am a new owner of an older MacBook Pro (4,1) running Lion Os X 10.7. I kept getting websites saying they were incompatible with my browser so I downloaded a Safari upgrade which turned out to need OS X 10.10 and now Safari won't even open as I get a prompt saying that I need 10.10. I don't really want to download 10.10 as I have downloading issues and I can't seem to revert to the older Safari as I didn't have a back up saved. (that's how new I was). So, is there any way that I can get my older version of Safari back? I downloaded a Safari 6.1.6 and installed but it doesn't seem to be accessible. Any ideas out there. Thanks.

10.7 is pretty outdated so you’re going to have problems visiting websites. Software Update will always give you the latest version of Safari compatible with your system, so you should never go and download it from somewhere else. If you somehow managed to install a newer version of Safari than is compatible with your system you might be out of luck trying to revert back. Have you tried looking into Chrome or Firefox?
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.
