Safari Not Opening After New macOS Ventura 13.0.1/13.1 Update

New Contributor

Hey I was wondering if anyone else was having issues with the new macOS Ventura update? After pushing the new update to the students none of them are able to use Safari. When Safari is launched it will open for a split second then close. I rebooted and reinstalled update macOS but no changes. Please advise on how to correct issue.


I tried: 

  • Holding Shift and click on Safari to open
  • Right click and open method
  • Reboot
  • Reinstall
  • Update Safari

@Pdallison Is it possible you have a Software Restriction in place for Safari on Ventura machines? There is no standalone installer for Safari 16.2, which is part of macOS Ventura 13.1, so if the app were damaged your re-install of macOS Ventura would have replaced the app.
