Try updating to Safari 4.0.4
Apple Menu / Software Updates.
Repair disk permissions after the installation.
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.
Also, if you are running Safari in 64 bit mode, try running in 32-bit mode instead. Right or control click the Safari icon in the Applications folder, then click: Get Info In the Get Info window click the black disclosure triangle next to General so it faces down. Select 32 bit mode. Quit Safari then relaunch.

Thanks for the suggestion. However having upgraded Safari to 4.0.4 and repaired permissions exactly the same thing has happened.
Any other suggestions?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.1), Safari 4.0.4 now

I've just heard from someone with a new iMac with the same (but faster) processor, OS and Safari as I have but he doesn't have this problem. Is it perhaps something to do with other software that I, and others, have installed?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Safari 4.0.4
