Safari 8.0.6, 7.1.6, and 6.2.6

Apple has released Safari 8.0.6 for OS X 10.10 Yosemite, along with Safari 7.1.6 for 10.9 Mavericks and Safari 6.2.6 for 10.8 Mountain Lion, with all three receiving WebKit-related security fixes. The updates resolve multiple memory corruption issues within WebKit that could lead to a malicious Web site executing arbitrary code, patch an opening in WebKit’s history file system that could compromise user information, and fix a problem with WebKit page loading that could lead to user interface spoofing. All three versions of Safari are available only via Software Update. (Free)

Bizarre. I am having problems with the upgrade to Safari (8.06), event after reinstalling the whole of Yosemite. A few friends of mine are experiencing similar problems. Safari responds by «saying» it can find the page or link, which have been OK for recent months (years!) Am I in error or what…
Incidentally, how does one get rid of the annoying reminder to install (re-install) of Java 8.45?
