If you are referring to the Safari menu bar at the top of your screen, login to another user account on your Mac. Make sure Safari is working there ok. If Safari doesn't function there either, it's a system wide issue. If Safari works ok in that account, follow the instructions here for troubleshooting third party Safari add-ons in the effected account.
If Safari doesn't work in any user account, follow the instructions here where you see: *Try Disk Utility* in case the startup needs repairing.
Replaced the hard drive recently?
"the system in question is 4.5 years old (Intel)"
I have more information. First, at the time that I found the problem I had the computer hooked up to a Panasonic Viera TV with an HDMI/DVI cable. Seems the entire Apple menu bar at the very top of all screens had disappeared. Once I took the computer away from the TV the problem disappears and the Apple menu bar re-appears. Therefore, I expect this is a setting to solve with the TV (HD).
Any guidance on solving that problem appreciated but at least it's not on the Mac side, more on the TV side.
Possibly the cable causing the problem OR, Panasonic's hardware isn't Mac compatible.
Check the vendor site for support.
