    So I open up Safari and the address bar says "http://./" then it crashes and I get the notification telling me that Safari has quit unexpectedly. I've tried restarting multiple times but it keeps doing the same thing.

    Are you at the most current version? And if you are then you should reinstall it. And see if it fixes the problem.

    Yes, I'm on OS X 10.5.6. I'll try reinstalling it. I'll let you know how it goes.

    You could also delete the preferences for safari from the library and/or repair the permissions on your machine.

    I've tried reinstalling Safari. And I repaired permissions. It's still being insane! Ugh!

    Delete the pref files.

    ~\Library\Preferences\com.apple.safari.plist

    Try creating another user on your machine. If it works in the other user then you should go to back into your account open the finder, in your home folder open the library folder, then the preferences folder. In there you'll see a file called "com.apple.safari.plist" put that into the trash and launch safari.

    keep us posted on what happens.

    I wouldn't even waste the time creating another user until after you trash the .plist.
