Safari 11.0.1

Apple has released Safari 11.0.1 for OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 and macOS Sierra 10.12.6. OS X (High Sierra 10.13.1 also includes it; see “macOS 10.13.1 High Sierra Offers Minor Fixes and More Emoji,” 1 November 2017). The update fixes two security concerns: an inconsistent user interface issue that could lead to address bar spoofing if visiting a malicious Web site and multiple memory corruption issues in WebKit that could lead to arbitrary code execution. Safari 11.0.1 is available only via Software Update. (Free, 10.11.6+)

Since this upgrade my contacts list on the RHS on facebook only shows a few contacts. I have to resize window to then show the full list. Even then when I do a bit of back and forth on facebook it reverts back to only showing a handfull of contacts!

Your link goes to the main Safari page as vs. a security info page or 11.0.1 download page. I'm looking just for the download itself, nor the MAS Update feature.
Earlier today I was able to download the Sierra 2017-001 security updater but now I can't figure out how I did it! looking at the security updates info page:

The best I can find is the security notes at

Yup, I saw that page too. No download link. Appears Apple customers are expected to have unlimited bandwidth and download the updates over and over for each device.

I know. Doesn't everyone have gigabit Ethernet to the home like Apple employees?

Indeed. I'm sticking with iOS 10 and Sierra, and it's an annoyance to have to turn off wifi before recharging iOS devices, else Apple uses over a gb of my data plan to force-download the iOS 11 update. So it goes.
My mac did an update yesterday to Safari 11.0.1, my Microsoft Outlook does not work, it states you can't use this version of the application Microsoft Outlook with this version of MacOS, you have Microsoft Outlook 15.32. How do I sort this? Non techno person!!

Your first step should be to run Microsoft AutoUpdate and update to the latest version of Office. You're a number of versions behind, which very well may be the problem.

My Canon EOS software is crashing since the update.
Any ideas. Feeling cheated as this is my work.

Since this upgrade Safari crashes every time when print is invoked. I tried all suggestions from forum pages but nothing worked. How do I fix this issue?
