MY Safari recently stopped working. It bounces in the dashboard when i click on it, but no browser window pops up what-so-ever. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing is working. I think this happened because I downloaded an add on and it corrupted the system. HELP!

Macbook 13.3, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Which add-on was it?

    Have you moved Safari from the top level of the Applications folder?

    I'm almost positive it was the "community bar" add-on. It stopped working after I downloaded that. And how do you remove Safari from the top level of the applications folder? I haven't tried that

    That toolbar/ct plugin seems to cause problems for all who install it!

    Close Safari, then locate and delete the following files and it should be gone:

    /Library/Application Support/Conduit
    /Library/InputManagers/CTLoader
    /Library/Receipts/ctloader.pkg
    /Library/Receipts/<Toolbar name>.pkg
    /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/CT2285220.bundle
    /Users/<User name>/Library/Application Support/Conduit

    where / is the root library on your Hard Disk.

    If you are running Snow Leopard you should also look here:

    Library/launchAgents/com.conduit.loader.agent.plist
    Library/Application support/conduit plugins

    Note: Safari does not support any third-party toolbars except those supplied as an extension to Safari via the Extension Gallery.

    Do NOT, ever, move Safari from the top level of the Applications folder!
