Well, a day or so ago, I was doing some pretty processor intensive work, and Finder quit on me. So did Safari. Well, I did a restart after Safari kept quitting after about 1 or 2 minutes of use. All my Finder and some other, mostly system, preferences were gone. I had to redo my dock, window views..... reall weird stuff. AND, Safari refuses to load more than a page or two before quitting. I decided to search for all Safari files and trashed them, then downloaded and installed a new copy. No luck. Safari still won't work. It seems that OmniWeb and Navigator are less stable also- although still relatively useable. Anyone know what might be causing this? Do I need a new java install, did i miss files that could be corrupted? Oh- I have fixed permissions since.
