    Wow does Safari piss me off! I was using it gladly since it came out, but now I can't even open it. I open it and right away it closes and unexpectedly quits! I don't know how to fix it. I re-downloaded it and it still just quits automatically.... I'm back on Chimera, I don't know how to fix this Safari problem = (, anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks.

    Have you deleted the preferences file yet?

    It's in your home directory in Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist

    And if all fails, open Terminal and check whether the tmp directory is in the root directory, i.e. /tmp

    If not, use the following command to recreate the symbolic link:

    sudo ln -s /private/tmp /tmp

    You will be asked for your password.

    Once you did that, try opening Safari again.
