You can roll back to the previous version with Time Machine. Files are located in main library/application support/microsoft, main library/internet plugins, and user library/application support/microsoft.

Silverlight 5 Build 5.1.30214.0 Released March 11, 2014, as Pender stated, this version will not run on Safari7.0.2 in Mavericks. Must resort to Firefox for Netflix and other sights that use silverlight. I was unable to install an older working version of silverlight. Hoping for a quick fix.

Silverlight 5 Build 5.1.30214.0 Released March 11, 2014 (KB2934150) is now the latest version. This update was supposed to fix a security vulnerability but causes "Plugin Failure" error in Safari 7.0.2. Recommend not updating your Silverlight if you have a working situation. If you are already stuck like I am, temp workaround is that it works for Netflix in Mozilla Firefox 27.

Silverlight 5.1.20913.0 does not work with Mavericks (10.9) Safari 7, Chrome, Firefox or any other numerous Mac browsers when attempting to use the NowTV.com website.
No amount of fiddling with the Safari 7 Plug-ins Security settings will allow the site to work.

An update is urgently required.

When I click on the download link I am directed to the Silverlight website and it says:

The version of Silverlight installed is:
Silverlight 5 (5.1.20513.0)

You are ready to use Microsoft Silverlight

No way to update it.

Thanks ... Ken

I'm a Microsoft basher from way back. I'm also a Netflix subscriber. I have a 2 year old MBP running 10.7.5 and Silverlight works flawlessly and has for more than a year. Installing Silverlight does not put a bunch of crap all over your system installation. It installs an internet plugin, a folder in Application Support, and preferences file(s). Silverlight has in no way compromised my OS installation nor my web browsing experience.

I'd like to add that I can browse any site with Safari and otherwise use my internet connection while a Netflix movie is streaming. I have an Apple Cinema Display that I use to view things such as movies on a large screen. I live in Mexico and TelMex is my ISP, I have a 400 KB/s pipeline.

Hmm, the download link on Microsoft's site always redirects me to Silverlight V1 from 2008 …
Current version is V5 I think.

If you are experiencing similar issues, you could try this mirror in germany:

To this day, the Microsoft Silverlight installer package that comes in the dmg download says NOTHING about what it installs on my system and where. No "read me" file, NOTHING. Just a generic package installer and my fingers crossed Microsoft doesn't install crap onto my system that causes instability and/or slowdown my CPU? I don't think so.

To this day, Silverlight stays OFF my computer. Trust Microsoft? Hahahaha... good one! Same idiots who bought out and borged Virtual PC back in the day and their first accomplishment was to screw up the code and have it cause a kernel panic to my entire system (which had literally NEVER happened before on that system, EVER).

Then after ruining Virtual PC for Mac, they discontinued it. Microsoft cost many small businesses a loss in competition for a product and lost time/revenue dealing with their ineptitude and greed.

And, THIS just scratches the surface. So, am I going to install Siverlight on my Mac when there's OPEN alternatives? HELL NO.
