I am using Safari version 5.1.5
This is the most up to date version according to Apple's website.
My operating system is Mac OS X Snow Leopard version 10.6.8. Again, this appears to be the most up to date version of Snow Leopard. Of course you can now get the new Mac OS Lion, but my computer requirements are (very) modest and I don't really need it. In any case I have heard some horror stories about people having big problems trying to install it and losing all sorts of stuff. Not for me!
My machine is only about 18 months old (November 2010) and is up to date as far as Mac software is concerned.
As I said, it is not a big problem, just a bit of a nuisance.
I wonder if any other HG members with Macs are having the same experience.
Viceroy, I'm running exactly the same set-up as you on my MacBookPro, of similar vintage, and not having any problems logging in. After the upgrade I had to utilise the second link of the two Sharon posted on Feb 25 2011, but no issues since.
Thanks for your input Boxer. My user control panel is missing whichever of the links I use. I now suspect there is a glitch somewhere inside my machine which is causing this.
