    Lightbulb safari/browser crashes
    hi, my safari (latest os) was crippled until i swapped some files indicated in the crash report- now it stays open for awhile but will probably crash, hopefully, after i finish this thread. here is the latest crash report:

    Date/Time: 2006-12-15 16:34:18.165 +0800
    OS Version: 10.4.8 (Build 8L127)
    Report Version: 4

    Command: Safari
    Path: /Applications/Browsers/Safari.app/Contents/MacOS/Safari
    Parent: WindowServer [86]

    Version: 2.0.4 (419.3)
    Build Version: 1
    Project Name: WebBrowser
    Source Version: 4190300

    PID: 221
    Thread: Unknown

    Link (dyld) error:

    no suitable image found. Did find:
    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/OpenTransport.framework/OpenTransport: unknown file type, first eight bytes: 0x0A 0x5E 0xE4 0x05 0x25 0x64 0xCF 0xA9
    Model: PowerBook5,8, BootROM 4.9.6f0, 1 processors, PowerPC G4 (1.5), 1.67 GHz, 1.5 GB

    can anyone give me a tip?

    thanks!

    Welcome here tomleep1! Hope you enjoy your stay!

    I would completely wipe Safari from your hard drive and reinstall it if I were you. I think that AppZapper lets you use it for five times before you have to buy your licence, or at least it used to. Use AppZapper if you can. If you can't, drag Safari's icon to the trash, then look in your Macintosh HD for the bits still lying around like in:

    Macintosh HD ---> your user account ---> Library ---> Caches ---> Safari

    Macintosh HD ---> your user account ---> Library ---> Preferences ---> com.apple.Safari.plist

    Macintosh HD ---> your user account ---> Library ---> Safari

    Then use CharlesSoft's Pacifist to select Safari and reinstall it from your Mac OS X installation disk.

    OpenTransport in your crash log... isn't that an OS 9 thing, though?

    Hope this helps :girl:

    thanks for the help-i wish it were that easy! i don't know if os 4.8 will accept an older safari from the disk. other than that the problem seems to be bigger- all browsers crash and dreamweaver won't start. it all happened when i installed acrobat pro and it asked if it could access safari. i guess i won't get around reinstalling though. do you know where my safari bookmarks are stored? thanks again........

    You could download AppDelete which is a free program and uninstalls programs and all their nasty little files that could be placed elsewhere. I use this. Works well for me.

    Also, ever thought about installing Mozilla Firefox 2.0 and using that instead of Safari? It does a lot better with webpages that Safari does. I've come across Safari not viewing pages correctly quite a few times. With Firefox, I haven't come to any problem yet... 'cept for being on a mac.
    Thanks!

    then just download Safari from the web before uninstalling it. Then you have the file you need.
