I recently upgraded to Safari 6.0 (7536.25) on Lion 10.7.4. Now Safari opens but crashes as soon as I try to load a page. I've tried most of the fixes that I could find in the recent posts:

  • different pages to be sure it isn't page specific
  • disabled all extensions
  • renamed the extension folder so it wouldn't be accessible (even though all were disabled)
    • I noticed that Safari recreated the folder still with all extensions disabled but just in case I clicked the Off switch at the top of the Extension list
  • renamed cache.db to get a new one
  • renamed webpageicons.db
  • Reinstalled Safari from the link in one of the forum posts


Please help!

    Nevermind, I found the culprit. The SafariStand plugin needed to be upgraded for Safari 6.
