    The first thing to try is to Repair Permissions and Verify the Hard Drive. Also, try resetting Safari, with everything but forms and password information, and see if that helps.

    Finder>Applications>Utilities>Disk Utility

    Select your drive on the left (Macintosh HD is default) and then select “Repair Permissions”.

    After I repair disk permissions do I "verify disk permissions" or "verify disk"?

    Verify disk. If you repaired permissions it already verified them.
