Do you think repairing permissions, if not done, would help?

Currently Being ModeratedNov 24, 2009 2:14 PM (in response to cecemf)I began experiencing crashes--a first for Safari--immediately upon installing 4.0.4. Realizing the need to determine whether it was the application or something that had coincidentally changed in the environment, I tested it with both the old and new plists (Safari and Safari RSS), and reverted to 4.0.3. Changing the plists didn't seem to make any difference.
While the crashes seemed to reduce in number under 4.0.3, they were still present, again a new experience. When I re-trashed the plists and reinstalled 4.0.4, things seemed to be about the same as they were under the reincarnation of 4.0.3: better than they were under 4.0.4 initially, but not as good as they had previously been under 4.0.3.
I was never able to determine a consistent cause of crashes. Now I've come upon something that hits consistently under 4.0.4 and that does not occur at all under 4.0.3: when I check my user account in the USA Today blog, 4.0.4 crashes immediately. Reverting to 4.0.3 solves the problem. Disabling all ad blocking, Flash blocking, and popup blocking doesn't make any difference.iMac 20" Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

You really should start you own new topic. . .
However, try this: Open up your Font Book in the Applications folder
and check carefully for all duplicates. It will tell you how to
resolve them. After they're all resolved, restart your Mac and
test Safari again.
If this is not successful, do start your own topic.
It's much easier for us not to get confused, and you get
the attention you deserve.
