    All of a sudden yesterday, Safari wouldn't start up.

    I click on the dock icon, and then the beachball comes up...i'm having to force quit Safari every time i try

    anyone know what's wrong, or how to fix it?

    thanks

    Find the Safari plist file (com.apple.safari.plist) and move it to the desktop. Try launching it then. If all is OK, trash the file. If not, put it back.
