Description Derk-Jan Hartman 2009-08-18 12:08:19 UTC
On Safari 2, the new toolbar fails to load. It fails silently (no visible errors in the error console) and doesn't seem to make a single change to the page. Making it work, will likely be difficult, because Safari 2 is: not JS 1.6 compatible, not supported by jQuery, has terrible JS debugging options and it is hardly used anymore.

However, perhaps there should be a hook in the toolbar code, for the cases where it "bails", and let it try to load the old toolbar in those cases ?

For testing, older versions of Safari can be downloaded here:

If possible at all, that's not worth our time.

Done (for all browsers that don't support the toolbar, not just Safari < 3) in r55269
