Safari 5.1.5 update makes minor bugfix

Apple posts stopgap release ahead of Mountain Lion

Apple has posted a new version of Safari, v5.1.5. The update is a minor one, simply resolving a glitch that "could affect website usability" when running in 32-bit mode. Separate Windows, Lion, and Snow Leopard downloads are available.

The release is likely just a holdover until the debut of Safari 5.2, which is already in testing by developers. It was introduced alongside a preview of OS X Mountain Lion, which may mean that v5.2 will be the default version of Safari in the new OS. Mountain Lion is scheduled to ship sometime this summer.

    What about the Javascript bug that cuts many users out of their banking sites (including mine)?

    Javascript bug?

    I reported problems with Safari to Apple recently. Quite a few websites that no longer work correctly, including Citibank (very difficult to log out). It's especially annoying as things worked perfectly before, and the problem has persisted for months now.
    Apple? Anybody listening?
