    hey guys,

    i'm not sure what happened. but i can't get safari to work. i think safari speed messed it up, but i got rid of that.

    whenever i open safari, the program opens, but there is no window and i can't open a new window.

    i've tried downloading safari from apple's website but i can't install it b/c it tells me i need leopard 10.5 or higher, but i have leopard 10.5.5.

    anybody else have this problem?

    thanks in advance

    Pull the Safari.plist from Preferences and either restart the computer or log out and retry. If that fixed the issue, you'll have to re-set the Safari home page. If not, reinstall Safari from the Optional Installs package on the Mac OS X install disc and run the software updates until it doesn't find anymore. Then relaunch Safari and see if that fixes it.
