Safari does not load pages with the address bar for one user (originally with Admin rights).  For all other accounts (Standard), Safari loads just fine. 


Safari 6.1 toolbar loads, page loads but comes up minimized.  Have to go to Window to pull it up, then when it does load, no search bar or favorites.  You can only recall pages from history.  Cannot load Safari-Preferences-Application error and closes.



MacBook Pro, OS X 10.8.5.  Safari: 6.1



1.  Repair permissions:  Found lots of problems which are apparently fixed.  Downgraded user from Admin to Standard now.  No change in access to Safari for user.

2.  UnInstall Extensions:  Safari - App Errors out when trying to access Preferences.  First click on Preferences - nothing happens, second attempt to click on Preferences, app errors out.  From a post (reference #2 below), went to Library (/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/) and copied over into another folder on desktop, three (3) extensions and deleted them from folder. - No fix.  Checked other locations (per Ref#2), no extensions found.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    While logged into that Account, open Safari.


    If you are missing the entire Tool Bar..?  Go to: Safari > View > Show Toolbar.

    Or if you are just missing the "Address and Search" Bar from the Toolbar...?  Control (right) click on the Toolbar > select Customize Toolbar > click Add "Address and Search" > then click Done.
