After updating Silverlight 4 to 5-th version, all the silverlight applications refused to start in Safari 5 and Apple WebKit browsers.
I tried to create new Silverlight 5 empty project and debug it, but even Application constructor not fired - the debugger cannot find silverlight plugin started in browser.
The problem is mass - we reproduced it on many computers with different OSes (win7 x32/x64, winXP).
Can anyone help with this problem?
With best regards,

As you can see on this Silverlight 5 compatibility chart Safari is only supported on Mac OS. It says there is no explicit support for that browser on any of the Windows platforms, which means the usual applies: things may work (as in SL4), but if they don't you'll most likely won't receive support and have to find a way around the problems yourself, or drop support for that browser.

In previous silverlight version, safari support was not introduced for
Mac OSWindows too. But despite this, silverlight 4 plugin worked in safari fine.
In fact, we didn't even pay attention to this limitation because all worked correct.

Silverlight 4 did officially support Safari on Mac OS, as listed here.
Regarding Safari on Windows, like I said above: "things may work (as in SL4)", but if they don't there's no support. Apparently compatibility for Safari on Windows was much better in SL4.

I am facing same issue on Safari/Mac, OS X Lion. When accessing HTMLPage.Window from Silverlight, webkit crashes. I am hosting my silverlight application in a container app through the webkit. It used to work fine in SL-4 plugin.
