    Have you tried repairing permissions? That seems to cause a lot of problems with Safari.

    Use Disk Utility (located at HD>Applications>Utilities) then select your hard drive from the left side of the screen, then "Repair" and select Repair Permissions.

    Try this?

    I had the same problem. I found this in another post on the Mac Forum site under "safari crashes after last update 10.4.11" in Feb 08 & it worked for me. Safari reopened perfectly as soon as I trashed the history.plist file - might work for you?

    So go to Users/"Your User Name Here"/Library/Safari and trash the history.plist file - see if that works.
