ive just updated my safari and it wont launch, i tried restarting clearing caches plists, even saw other posts on this matter tried all the things that were said and nothing.

i just reinstalled and older version 1.2 and still nothing, the application bounces and quits.

i did however notice after clearing caches and plists the application bounced more then twice but still never opened. im having the same problem with opening msn messenger and mercury messenger. my other browser firefox seems to be working fine.

but i need help please!


thanks

yeah! i just checked that mine does the same thing! but how come your mercury works and mine doesnt?...this is soo frustrating!

i think the only way now to resolve it is through re installin the mac discs but i dont know where they are and i have no way to backup my files thats why im asking on here lol

hopefully someone will help us

hi guys,
I also have a problem with Safari since its last update, my safari before was running perfect but after the update, when I click to the link or change the tab in Safari, there is a beach ball spinning, sometime it took a few seconds and sometime it took a few minutes, it is really annoying.

Is there anyone have the same problem?

Thanks

Hi Pinky1107,

Thanks for the tip, i'll try. The problem has happened recently since i updated safari last time.

ops..I just open \library\preferences there are so many plist files and some folders of Adobe. I would like to make sure that Is it fine if I deleted all the files and folder in \library\preferences

Thanks
