I upgraded this morning.  Now i have no sound.  It is set to mute.  I checked system preferences and mute is NOT checked there.  I googled it and others are also having this problem.

What hardware (Mac model) are you using? Which OS version did you upgrade from - Mavericks?

I've found that in the latest yosemite, the sound messes up.  If you plug in a headphone/mic and unplug it, it sometimes resets.  Also, if you go to System Preferences --> Output and select the correct sound output, even if it's the only one, it "fixes" itself.

You could also try resetting the PRAM by cold booting while holding down the Command-Option-p-r key combination until you hear the startup chime a third time.

I am using Safari too. Strange the link isn't working for you. It is for me. Try cutting and pasting

Are you behind a proxy or a firewall?  Those links work for me in Chrome, Firefox, Opera Next and Safari.

In Safari, try this:

Open this first:

Then open this:

I think Apple sets some weird cookies for safari.
