    The reinstalled Safari 6.0.1 worked well for several days but began to fail repeatedly so I'm back to Safari 6.0 until Apple corrects this problem.

    I had a similar problem under Lion and solved it by deleting all of the SafariStand related plugins, etc. Thanks.

    There may be several causes for safari crashes. But I think I have found mine (cause i.e.). I have uninstalled safari. deleted every file and folder that has safari in it (did not delete those files such as some word document that may have no bearing on the functioning of safari). I got the names of the files and folders from the search bar in both normal finder window and the hidden library folder. Of course first I made 1 word document where I have written down which file I have moved from which place to which place. let me tell in steps. first I delete 1 file, then I drag and drop that file from trash to a location of my choice, then for another file another location. then I write down from which place I have moved the file to which new location. I think this step is unnecessary. but just to be on the safe side I did that in case I need to put the file/folder back in its original place

    Forgot to tell you that i already had a safari 6.0.2 dmg file downloaded from cnet.

    now I install safari. the same problem. then for 2 seconds from start to crash of safari, I noticed some greasekit menu on the menu bar. now what do I do. I found out the location of greasekit. then I deleted the all the plugins in the folder SIMBL/plugins/

    Then I uninstall safari again. then again re-install. the problem is gone.

    Thanks for this.  It reminded me I had installed a SIMBL plugin, SafariStand.  I just went to ~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL,  moved the SafariStand.bundle file from "Plugins" to "Plugins (Disabled)", quit and relaunched Safari, and that did it -- no more crashes.  Before this Safari crashed -- actually, exited quietly, with no crash report -- 100% reproducibly when performing searches on multiple sites.  But getting SafariStand, alone, out of the mix fixed everything.  I think there's a new version of SafariStand that expressly claims to work with Safari 6.0.4 (which is the version in which the crashes started happening for me), so it might be possible to update and keep it around, but I can't even remember why I installed it, and don't use it, to my knowledge, so I'm just going to leave it out, at least for now.  I appreciate your post, pjbhazni; it saved me a lot of time looking for a fix for the crashes.

    Update the dyld cache

     

    Updating the dynamic link shared cache helps clear slowdowns and other problems with newly installed applications or when updating software. Running the following command in the Terminal should ensure the dyld cache is set up properly:

     

    update_dyld_shared_cache -root / -force

     

    I was having Safari crashes and after using this Terminal Command I haven't had any since.

    Include me in the list of people who did not get an update triggered by moving Safari package contents to the trash.
