    This has happened all of a sudden - was working fine last night, put MBP to sleep, tried today, Safari crashes on open with:

    OS X 10.10.1, 2013 rMBP

    I just tried Repair Disk Permissions then restarted, didn't work.

    I then booted Mac into Safe Boot, and logged on as me. Safari opened fine, so I disabled all my extensions, rebooted Mac normally - same crash/error in Safari as before


    Also should add it crashes with the same error under a different user account.


    Tried resetting PRAM/NVRAM, no luck


    I've also tried removing everything from Library\Internet Plug-ins and ~\Library\Internet Plug-ins (which was empty anyway), no luck.

    I also deleted ~\Library\Preferences\, still no luck

    You may try to go to ~\Library\, rename the "Safari" folder to "Safari_BAK", and then start Safari.

    Of course, I suggest you only do this after you have proper backup. Otherwise, you may loss all your history, bookmark, extension...

    If Safari can start successfully, but like back to factory setting. Then you may try to recovery your data from that "Safari_BAK" folder to the new "Safari" folder.

    It if does nothing. You can simply remove the new "Safari" folder, and rename the BAK folder back to Safari.
