As with any update/upgrade/reinstall, repair disk permissions.
Quit any open applications/programs. Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. That can be ignored. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done. Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac.
If that doesn't help...
Try Safari maintenance.
Update third-party plug-ins
You should make sure any third-party plug-ins are up to date. Some third-party plug-ins may put an icon in System Preferences--if so, see if its preference pane includes a "Check for Updates" feature, then use that to find available updates. You can also check with the vendors of third-party plug-ins to see if any updates are available.
If you aren't sure which (if any) third-party plug-ins you have installed, choose Installed Plug-ins from the Safari Help menu. A window appears showing the versions of each plug-in, as well as other information.
Troubleshoot third-party plug-ins
If you're using the latest versions of any third-party plug-ins yet Safari still unexpectedly quits, try disabling plug-ins:
From the Safari menu, choose Preferences.
Deselect "Enable plug-ins".
Use Safari for a while until you are reasonably certain it is no longer unexpectly quitting
Troubleshoot Input Managers
Troubleshoot for Input Managers as you did for third-party plug-ins above. Input Manager issues may occur after installing a new version of Safari.
Input Managers reside in these two locations:
The steps to find an Input Manager at issue are the same as the steps to find a third-party plug-in issue as described above, except for the locations.
Make sure all your system software is up to date
From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari/Reset. Select the top 5 buttons and click Reset.
From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari/Empty Cache.
