Addressing a problem with accessing some Web sites in 32-bit mode, Apple has released Safari 5.1.5 for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and 10.6 Snow Leopard. According to Topher Kessler at CNET, “a significant number of Web sites would not run properly” when using Safari 5.1.4 in 32-bit mode. And based on many threads in the Apple Support Communities, it seems to have affected access to banking Web sites in particular. The update also fixes an issue that affected the stability of Software Update in Mac OS X Server 10.6.8. (Free via Software Update, 44.69 MB Lion/47.51 MB Snow Leopard)
