    Perhaps that file is set as the 'homepage' & safari opens with it ?

     

    see safari preferences - general

     

    from here

    Para configurar tu página de inicio, sigue estos pasos:

    1. En Safari selecciona Safari > Preferencias… > General (barra de herramientas).
    2. Teclea o pega la URL de la página de inicio en el campo "Página de inicio:".
    3. Si quieres que tu página de inicio se abra en una nueva ventana de Safari, selecciona "Página de inicio" en el menú emergente "Abrir nuevas ventanas con:".
    4. Si quieres que tu página de inicio se abra en una nueva pestaña de Safari, selecciona "Página de inicio" en el nuevo menú emergente "Abrir nuevas pestañas con:".

    Importante:Con Reanudar activado, Safari no siempre abrirá tu página de inicio, incluso si en las Preferencias de Safari has seleccionado "Página de inicio" en el menú emergente "Abrir nuevas ventajas con:". Para abrir tu Página de inicio en estas circunstancia, presiona la tecla mayús cuando abras Safari.

    I removed Downloads.plist from the folder. There was no com.apple.safari.savedstate in Library/SavedApplicationState....

     

    I tried again and it still didn't work. I opened Safari and it downloads the file again.

    I did this but nothing changed...

    if you've anything enabled in Safari-Preferences-Extensions - remove it & test again

     

     

    failing that - quit Safari & move the following file to the Desktop & test again... you should be able to triple-click to select the line below & choose 'Reveal' from the Services menu, reached by ctrl-click or Safari-Services

     

     

    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.safari.plist

     

     

    if that helps - you can trash the file you moved, but will have to adjust any changes you had made in Safari-Preferences

    andyBall is probably heading down the right path here.  Another thing I'd suggest is checking /Library/Internet Plugins.  In particular, I'd look for any PDF/Adobe type plugins and drag them to your desktop and test.  Just be sure to quit Safari first.

    I tried to follow all the instructions but somewhere around "triple-click to select the line below & choose 'Reveal' from the Services menu" I got lost....I did try to open the file and eventualy erased it. I don't know if it was this or something else but  IT WORKED!!! At least yesterday and today Safari hasn't opened the file when I open Safari.

    I really appreciate it.

     

    I did lose all me configurations and preferences and don't know how to make Safari open with all the tabs from my Favorites....but I guess that's a lot easier than the other problem I had.

     

    THANKS TO EVERYONE

    Well done, it can't be easy following instructions in another language

    If you haven't yet permanently trashed the file you moved, don't.

     

    it sounds from your comment "how to make Safari open with all the tabs from my Favorites" as if you previously had a folder of tabs opening when Safari starts ( en el menú emergente "Abrir nuevas ventanas con:...), and that a link or bookmark to the problem file is possibly in that folder...

     

    In Safari, check the 'favorites' or 'bookmarks' list for that folder, & delete the link to the file - if you do find it, that was the problem & if you now quit Safari, then replace or 'put back' the com.apple.safari.plist file that you removed, things may be back to normal, along with your original configurations.
