    OSX 10.4.11. MY SAFARI 4.1.3 STARTED TO QUIT UNEXPECTEDLY AFTER OPENING. I GET A WINDOW MESSAGE SAYING THAT IT HAS QUIT UNEXPECTEDLY AND GIVES ME AN OPTION TO CLOSE RE-OPEN OR REPORT.

    I LOGGED IN AS ANOTHER USER AND SAFARI WORKED FINE FOR ABOUT A WEEK THEN HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH SAFARI QUITTING! ARGH! :mad:

    I CREATED A 3RD USER AND LOGGED IN AND HAS BEEN WORKING FINE FOR ABOUT 2 DAYS NOW.

    DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ADVICE, SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT I CAN DO TO FIX THIS PROBLEM?? PLEASE HELP!!

    fix your caps lock key!

    I don't know which Safari version you have, but 10.4.11 doesn't exist.

    Please go to the Apple Menu, choose about this Mac, then post the screenshot of what Version you are on.

    Thanks. I made a mistake 10.4.11 is my OSX.... Safari is 4.1.3

    ----------

    When I open safari 4.1.3 I only have about 10 seconds before it quits. I have tried to reset and empty cache. It's strange that when I use or log in through another user safari works fine so far anyways.

    Wow, that's ancient. Sorry, I don't know how to help here, but Apple has stopped supporting that OSX version a few years ago. If it's an intel Mac, you could upgrade to 10.6 (snow leopard). I wouldn't upgrade to Lion on such an old machine.

    My friend is a Tech no Macs. He told me that it might be a corrupted file and I should upgrade to a new OSX version. He is busy otherwise he can fix it and install a newer OSX version. But I don't want to wait any longer! What does the $200 entail??

    ----------

    Thanks. My friend advised I upgrade to a new OSX version as well. I do have an intel core duo.

    Snow Leopard is $29

    How much memory (RAM) do you have? And what model is your macbook exactly?

    Head to the your user library folder and delete the safari folder then go to the preference folder in your library and delete the safari preference (.plist file). Finally delete the cache folder and and that should give you a brand new safari without having to reinstall Mac OSX ;)

    Ok, a few options for you:

    Use a different browser, e.g. Firefox or Chrome or Opera. Unfortunately, even here you start running out of options, since the new versions tend to require newer versions of OSX (10.5 in the case of Firefox). Cost: $0

    Upgrade to OSX 10.6 snow leopard. That should run without major problems with the 1 GB of RAM. I've been using a 2008 machine with SL and 2 GB of ram until recently without feeling limited. Cost: $29

    Upgrade to 2 GB of RAM and snow leopard. This will be fine for a few more years. I expect that Apple will update and support snow leopard for two more years. Cost: $29 for SL and about $30 for 2 GB DDR2-667 MHz RAM, self install


    edit: Or, try what Vikz suggested. Might be the best solution.
