    So something similar to my problem was posted here, but his problem seemed to be linked to a pluggin and the 10.4.7 update, which does not apply to me, as I got 10.4.7 when it was released and have had no problems until today, and I have no pluggins installed.

    My problem is pretty basic; starting today whenever I open Safari it crashes within the first 5 seconds. I can re-open it and it runs fine for a little while, then I will try to open a new window it will crash again (as I found out as I finished writing a very long post on the superpower thread which never got posed :mad: ). I'm on a mbp 2.0/7200/1gb runing 10.4.7, and it is my first mac, so I have no idea how to go about fixing this. I know that repair permissions is the standard response, but I have no idea how to do something even as basic as that :eek: . Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Edit: Spelling

    Delete the following folders/files...

    ~/Library/Safari
    ~/Libary/Caches/Metadata/Safari
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist

    You will lose all of your preferences and what not, but at this point it seems like the only option... :eek:

    This is funny because I think you were one of the people I was responding to over at the superpowers thread.

    Anyway, I deleted the files (I don't have a library/preferances file so I didn't delete it) and it only half-worked. I emptied the trash, quit Safari, and relaunched. It crashed. However, apple+n does not crash it anymore, so we're halfway there. Anything else?
