Sfari 8.0.2 for Yosemite update

After releasing then pulling a update for the desktop Safari browser on OS X last week, Apple on Thursday posted Safari 8.0.2 for Yosemite.

In addition to allowing Yosemite users to import username and passwords from Mozilla’s Firefox browser, Safari 8.0.2 fixes a few annoying issues, among them history not syncing across devices if iCloud Drive is disabled and another one prevent a saved password from being autofilled after two devices are added to iCloud Keychain.

The update is available through the Mac App Store’s Updates tab. A standalone installer should be available shortly from the Apple Support website. Safari 7.1.2 for OS X Mavericks and Safari 6.2.2 for OS X Mountain Lion were also released on Thursday.

Safari 8.0.2 for Yosemite changelog:

  • Fixes an issue that could prevent history from syncing across devices if iCloud Drive is not on.
  • Fixes an issue that could prevent a saved password from being autofilled after two devices are added to iCloud Keychain.
  • Improves the performance of WebGL graphics on Retina displays
  • Allows users to import username and passwords from Firefox.
  • Fixes a rare issue in which some users were unable to access Safari after installing the 8.0.1 update.

More about the security content of Safari 8.0.2 for Yosemite, Safari 7.1.2 for OS X Mavericks and Safari 6.2.2 for OS X Mountain Lion is available in support documents here and here.

The updates are recommended for all OS X Yosemite, Mavericks and Mountain Lion users as they contain improvements to stability and security.

    My wifi is slower. Safari is buggy. I regret updating. Now I must pay the price.

    i love Yosemite but since upgrading constant mini crashes on safari when multiple tabs are open was hoping this update would fix it.. but it didn’t

      Was it a fresh install? That’s what I did with my ’11 Mini and it runs great. Haven’t had an issues

      • yiiidddooooo

        just seen this.. no it wasn’t a fresh install but i am thinking about doing one as its so frustrating i buy Apple not to suffer these crashes lol

    if the new Yosemiti update does not fix this bluetooth/wifi problem im downgrading to Mavericks. From now on im waiting until 3-4 updates come out per OSX or IOS to update. Apple lost my trust

      I so agree. Apple lost my trust too for making my internet ridiculously slow on iPhone 4 after one of the iOS 7 point updates and for OS X Yosemite’s horrible font rendering on non-retina displays, the unnecessarily thin, tiny font and blindness of white UI crap. I need a super duper magnifying glass for the App Store and iTunes. I never had this problem with Mavericks. I am so weary of updating my iPad 4 or iPhone 5S now because I never know if the update will seriously hamper my devices with stupid bugs that weren’t there before. I’m never going to be an early adopter on the next OS X iteration again. I don’t feel like being a pubic beta tester, something I didn’t sign up for.
