Hello. This problem just started today. I didn't update any software today either.
When I open Safari and attempt to use the menubar I get the endless beachball. I can force quit the application.
I tried repairing permissions, and deleting the plist & cache files. I also deleted the extensions in the extensions folder. I have restarted and downloaded a new copy of Safari but still no joy. The system wouldn't let me delete Safari before I installed a new one so I just installed the latest version again w/o deleting Safari first.
I cannot do anything from within Safari. I have had to go to the folder to delete the extensions.
I logged out of my user account and logged into my Guest account and Safari exhibits the same problem in the Guest account. So I am guessing the user account isn't corrupt.
I am out of ideas. Anyone have a suggestion?
