You need to close the Safari process, not just the browser window.
Use the Activity Monitor, or restart your Mac, then run the downloaded installer before doing anything else.
Restarting the Mac won't help if Nikkimouse has Safari open automatically on login.
Nikkimouse, you need to Quit (or Force Quit) Safari. Click on Safari->Quit, or when in Safari press and hold the Command key and then press the Q key (then release both keys), or from the Apple drop-down select "Force Quit..." and then in the window that pops up select Safari and click the Force Quit button. (My apologies if I'm telling you things you already know.)
