    Josh --

     

    That is not a crash report.  It is a piece of the console report.

    However, my first suggestion would be to get rid of SIMBL & AdBlocker.

     

    /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/SafariAdBlocker.bundle

    To find the Users Library, Click on the Finder icon in the Dock.  Then go up to  "Go" in the menubar, while holding  down the option key.

     

    You'll see the User Library in the drop down list.  Open that, then go do to the Logs folder > Crash Reporter file. Look for your the latest Safari Crash Report.  Copy it, then paste it back here for us to see, OK?

    Well, you're getting close.  Neither of those was a Safari crash report.  Your Silverlight plugin could be updated, or deleted.  After you do that, it would hurt to do a Safe Boot.

    Please open your Font Book application, and check there for duplicate or conflicting fonts.  Those will slow Safari down to a crawl.  If nothing amiss found there, do the Safe Boot, followig the link I provied above, OK?

    The crashes are caused by the Silverlight plugin. If you can do without it, remove it according to the developer's instructions. Otherwise contact the developer (Microsoft) for support.

    Right, Linc.

    I forgot to re-ask that question.

    I thought safe boot disabled plugins?

     

    No.

     

    What do you need to see now to help further diagnose the problem?

     

    If you've removed Silverlight and PluginProcess is still crashing, or Safari is, post another crash report.
