Safari 4.05

I'm not sure what started this but suddenly Safari continuasly crashes and re-crashes when trying to re-open. This is frustrating as I don't see many reports on this problem on this site.
Help!

I'd start

In reply to: Safari 4.05

I'd start by wiping out the Safari plist files. Google it to find specifics.

Did you happen to install some kind of addon program? Maybe some kind of ad blocker or something of that sort?

Safari fix

In reply to: I'd start

I want to thank everyone for their advice, 'Thank You'.

What fixed it was "Jimmy's" advice and deleting the Safari.plist. Like magic Safari is running as it should.
As far as FireFox foes, I like it and keep it up to-date but I still find it slow but improving through time.

Thank you guys again.

got the right one?

In reply to: Safari 4.05

I've read that there is more than one Safari 4.0.5 out there. One is for Leopard, one is for Snow Leopard, maybe even one for Tiger. Make sure your Safari is hunting for the right big cat.

If that were true

In reply to: got the right one?

If that were true, which I'd say sounds pretty unlikely due to the large amount of work involved in maintaining multiple code bases, then the Software Update program would automatically grab the right one. And even if the OP downloaded it from the Apple website manually, odds are it wouldn't install unless it was for the right version. But I keep getting back to how much work that would be for Apple, to maintain 2-3 different codebases for the same program, and I just don't see it happening. It really sounds more like someone without any programming experience talking out of their rear in an attempt to sound smarter than they are.

That just means

In reply to: take a look at this

That just means one version is a universal binary, the other is a smaller x86 only version.

Charlie / Safari continuously crashes...

In reply to: Safari 4.05

Hi Charlie, I 'use to' be with Safari also, and it crashed with me more often then I liked too. For the last cpl yrs I've been w/ Firefox 3.6.3 and never have a problem. You'll like them!
