They say it's not a bug, it's by design here, even though Google's support page says it accepts Safari 4 as a fully supported browser.
Siri knew who those people were but proclaimed 'Uh oh, I don't have a phone number for Jane Isa Doe." and beneath, there's a message: "Content Not Available." I debugged this for over an hour and on a hunch, found a workaround that seems to work for nearly everyone who has tried it.For Safari, enable the Develop Window and use an option in there that works. [crarko adds: I don't have an older system active at the moment to try this.It's inevitable that older software becomes obsolete, the same way older hardware does.Web applets still use the up to date, secure version 1.7 plugin.[crarko adds: I believe Oracle has said that eventually Java will no longer support applets at all, on any platform.] A few weeks ago, a number of people started reporting having trouble with Siri.
