If you haven't done so, empty the Safari cache. Command + Option + E
If that doesn't make a difference, quit Safari. Open a Finder window. Select the account folder in the Sidebar on the left. Now open the Caches folder then the com.apple.Safari folder.
Move the cache.db file from the com.apple.Safari folder to the Trash.
This may or may not be the problem but I've noticed a change in cookie behaviour since installing 10.6.5. I'm a web-developer and I've found that Safari is not sending to my applications any cookies that are defined with a "domain=" attribute.
The only cookies sent to my server apps are those defined without a domain= attribute e.g. "JSESSIONID" cookies.
When storing cookies with a domain= attribute set, Safari is always prepending "." to the domain, which it did not previously do to my knowledge.
I think there is a bug. There's certainly a change in behaviour. Firefox continues to work fine with our apps on the same Mac.
Tried to add an additional account: Same problem.
Even though the one account is ok, you stated that you tried another account, same problem.
How about third party add-ons? Safari: Unsupported third-party add-ons may cause Safari to unexpectedly quit or have performance issues
An Archive and Install may help, instructions here.
Mac OS X 10.5: About installation options
There are no third party add-ons installed on Safari. My old account works without problems and I simply added a new account - where the problems are. Also, I tried to add an additional account and the same problems occour: Blank pages on certain sites (like Google) and certain e-mails.
I seems a bit troublesome to reinstall a new system as the first (existing) account works fine! I have made som screendumps of the problem, if this may help you!

Since any account you create has the same problem, boot from the install disc to rule out any errors on the startup disk.
Insert your install disk and Restart, holding down the "C" key until grey Apple appears.
Go to Installer menu and launch Disk Utility.
(In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first from the installer menu)
Select your HDD (manufacturer ID) in the left panel.
Select First Aid in the Main panel.
(Check S.M.A.R.T Status of HDD at the bottom of right panel. It should say: Verified)
Click Repair Disk on the bottom right.
If DU reports disk does not need repairs quit DU and restart.
If DU reports errors Repair again and again until DU reports disk is repaired.
When you are finished with DU, from the Menu Bar, select Utilities/Startup Manager.
Select your start up disk and click Restart
While you have the Disk Utility window open, look at the bottom of the window. Where you see Capacity and Available. *Make sure there is always 15% free space.*

You don't need to. Archive and Install places a new system folder on the disk. It does not erase the disk.
I can affirm Wangjammer5's post. Seems that you can't do anything.
I'm also a web developer, everything worked fine before this morning I updated to 10.6.5 After that I wasn't able to log into my own web services. Figured out that Safari saved the cookies (you can see under Preferences > Security, Button "Cookies", just use the search-field and enter the URL of the problematic site), but doesn't send them to the server (when developer mode active Developer > Web informations, Resource of the Web-site itself and show headers...Cookies should be somewhere there)
My only workaround was to change the web services. I set the cookies with domain information. Without the domain information it works again.
Seems to be a "security fix" (http://www.anyware.co.uk/2005/2010/11/11/os-x-10-6-5-update-kills-safari-cookies -set-on-ip-address/) but for some of us it's more a pain...
