Safari & Internet Explorer
Download- and installation scripts are included in BrowserBox – not the actual browsers.
- Cannot be installed when running a Live CD.
- Don’t run installers for more than one of these at the same time. If something fails, you can reinstall through System → More programs.
- If Adobe has updated Flash since the latest release of winetricks, Flash installation is likely to fail. If you need it, upgrade the Wine packages and try again.
Internet Explorer 7
- Toolbar layout is sometimes broken.
- If 3D Acceleration is disabled in the Virtual Machine, IE7 sometimes crashes.
- The “new tab” page crashes Safari. Open links in new tabs instead or stick to one tab.
- 3D Acceleration needs to be enabled in the Virtual Machine for Safari 5 to start.
