Try the following steps:
- Remove any folders with Safari in the name from: Hard drive > Users > YourUsername > Library > Caches
- Move Hard drive > Users > YourUsername > Library > Safari > History.plist to your Desktop
- Move Hard drive > Users > YourUsername > Library > Safari > Downloads.plist to your Desktop
- Move Hard drive > Users > YourUsername > Library > Cookies > Cookies.plist to your Desktop
- Move Hard drive > Users > YourUsername > Library > Preferences > com.apple.Safari.plist to your Desktop
After each step retry Safari to see it now works or not.
OK. Next things to try.
Go to this folder. Again, if anything is present move it to the Desktop and retry Safari:
Hard drive > Users > YourUsername > Library > InputManagers
Hard drive > Users > YourUsername > Library > Application Support > SIMBL
Those folders don't exist by default, so don't be worried if you can't find them.
Failing that, try running Onyx using the settings shown on this page:
I am having the exactsame problem, ONYX did not work. I ended up buying Drive Genius, which found and fixed problems with the file structure, but it still does not work. Safari does work on another user account.
I have followed all of the suggested ideas, plus removed all Internet Browser Plugins.
I have lso tried reinstalling Safari. Firefox does work, but I need Safari to stream movies from Netflix.
I visited the Genius Bar Today, but that did not help.
I have tried all solutions but none work. Safari tries to open but crashes. I can't get to remove the warning from safari preferences even if I hold the shift key. It goes straight to report but I can not do this as Safari is the default connection.
I have reinstalled Safari twice and updated the OS to 10.5.6. I spent the whole day trying to solve this.
