I have the same problem but with my microsoft messenger I'll try to uninstall safari 3.
It's beta software, what do you expect? I haven't gone to 3 and don't plan to do so until the final gets released.I did the uninstall too, and everything returned to normal. Apple was certainly fast to issue a patch for the Windows version of Safari; I'm hoping they'll be fairly prompt to deal with the bugs in the Mac version as well, especially since this one is a huge hit to the usability of other software as well.
My honest expectation is that it'll be fixed, either in the final or possibly sooner in another beta revision released before the final. That is the point of beta software, isn't it? To identify problems so that the maker (Apple in this case) can fix them, right?It's beta software, what do you expect? I haven't gone to 3 and don't plan to do so until the final gets released.
