    Hi Jay...

     

    We need the entire report including the "binary images" section.

     

    Please copy / paste that in your reply.

    You are running a number of different add-ons extensions and input managers. I would take a look at removing "splashdata and possibly SiMBL and see if the crashing stops. What is the last thing you added to Safari?

    Hi...

     

    /Library/ScriptingAdditions/Glims.osax/Contents/MacOS/GlimsOSAX

     

    /Library/InputManagers/SIMBL/SIMBL.bundle/Contents/MacOS/SIMBL

     

    /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/SplashID.bundle/Contents/MacOS/SplashID

     

    /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/SplashID.bundle/Contents/PlugIns/SIDSafari.bundle/Content s/MacOS/SIDSafari

     

    /Users/jayframson/Library/ScriptingAdditions/1Password Addition Leopard.osax/Contents/MacOS/1Password Addition Leopard

     

    /Users/jayframson/Library/ApplicationSupport/1Password/Extensions/30890/WebKitEx tension.bundle/Contents/MacOS/WebKit Extension

     

    /Library/Application Support/Glims/PlugIns/Glims for Safari.plugin/Contents/MacOS/.GlimsInternal

    As hpr3 mentions, you have numerous third party add ons installed that need moving to the Trash.

     

    1Password has causing compatibility issues with Safari in the past. Results of an ASC forum search for 1Password here.

     

    How to remove 1Password >  http://help.agile.ws/1Password/uninstall.html

     

    Much better off using the Mac OS X native password manager Keychain Access located in /Applications/Utilities

     

    Thread 3 from your report mentions the cache.

     

    Go to  ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/

     

    Move the Cache.db file (or ApplicationCache.db) file to the Trash.

     

    Deleting and reinstalling Safari will not do any good until you remove all of the third party add ons.

     

    It would probably take less time to erase the startup disk and reinstall the Mac OS X using your install discs then it would to remove all the third party unsupported plugins .

    Hey Carolyn. I don't think glims would be a problem. I woud remove SIMBL and the cache.db file first and see what happens.

    Splash  and 1Password are definitely problematic. As I mentioned to the OP, it may be much faster to erase the disk and start over. At that point, they can reinstall one plugin at a a time starting with Glims.

    The Splash is SIMBL...  that will cause Safari to crash every time.

    There are two libraries.

     

    One is root denoted by:   /Library

     

    The other is your user (home) folder library denoted by:   ~/Library

     

    Move the Splash files to the Desktop  for the time being, As soon as Safari is stable, move the files back to the original folder, quit then relaunch Safari to test.
