Lic, thank you so much for your help. Fortunately did not have to go to your last option as once I had the com.apple.safari.plist on desktop I unlocked (bottom right) and added me as administrator and 'system' only w/privilages to read/or all others could not ; relocked and then called Chantelle at Applecare who told me just to restart w/ library preferences pane open on desktop. After that Safari preferences were retained.
*Interesting to note that last date on panel was the day I removed McAfee tool that ATT/Yahoo had offerred as 'free' download on its help page to it's Mac customers. Hindsight is 20/20 and perhaps its a coincidence, but had never had a problem with using Sophos and it could have been a conflict with the free tool and Mountain Lion . . .
Safari is important as it is my default browser on iPhone 4s which syncs w/ MacBook Pro every night.

Would you please detail the exact steps you followed?
I'm having a similar issue for one user I created on my MBA with 10.8

The hardest part was getting to the packlist: Credit to Carolyn Samit's post which is essentially what Applecare told me to do:
"If you are having proboems with Safari, corrupted preferences can sometimes prevent Safari from functioning as it should. Try this user tip...
Go to ~/Library/Preferences
Move the com.apple.Safari.plist file from the Preferences folder to the Desktop.
Relaunch Safari. If that helped, move the.plist file to the Trash. If not, move it back to the Preferences folder.
~ (Tilde) character represents the Home folder
For Lion v10.7x: To find the Home folder in OS X Lion, open the Finder, hold the Option key, and choose Go > Library "
Better yet, if your MBA has Applecare have them walk you through it . . . I am extra careful not to muck-up anything, so after I relaunched Safari and it saved preferences for two sessions, restarted MBP and went to Disc Utility and hit "repair disc permissions"; once it stated 'repairs complete' -- then restarted MBP and have had no problems since.

Step one worked perfectly for me.
