Sorry for the confusion. Try again.
Alternatively, just click the finder icon and hold down the key combination shift-cmd-G.
Enter ~/Library/Preferences/ in the path of the window that opens.

Results of Step 2
Safari continued to crash while in Safe Boot. By the way, I'm having the same issue with Safari crashing on my laptop (MacBook Pro) . Problem started a few days ago.

I had a similar issue on both of my machines (MBP 17" 2011 and MBA 13" 2013). Did all of the steps you suggested even manually resetting permissions on the applications directories on each machine. Safari worked until I shut down the machines then cold booted them back up. Safari crashed each time I tried this, even with all extension off or completely uninstalled. Then I noticed an item in the Safari menu - "About Glims".
After much rooting around in the user and main Libraries I managed to finally dump all extensions, prefs, caches, etc related to Glims.
Then I re-did your list of hacks and finally Safari seems to be working nominally - with the few extensions I use.
This took the better part of several days to "fix". One has to wonder about Safari's usefulness. I don't have these issues with Firefox or Chrome.
Thanks for the tips.
