Some of these Apple fixes were not perfect for some reason. On my aunt's MacBook Pro, I updated all these fixes, but somehow, the fixes broke Safari. So, had to figure how to correct this, and after trying everything that I could find on the Web, it still failed, so I had to install a alternative browser - Firefox. Firefox was much faster and more updated. I looked online, and found that many other Mac users had experienced the same problem of Safari not launching after the updates.
I think after I had Firefox installed, I could have fixed this by re-installing a new Safari. But I did not have much trust in the updates.
I don't understand why the Safari beta browser was packaged together with the OS security fixes. They should keep these as separate updates. Grrr....sometimes Apple is becoming too much like Microsoft. The error message was pretty funny - and useless.
Anyways, this is a rant that not all Apple updates are perfect as indicated as above. There are the occasional hiccups that cause you to pull your hair out when you find out that without an alternative browser on a Mac laptop, its hard to download a patch/update/program!
Had to use a USB key from another laptop to download Firefox for Mac and install it that way.
