Sometimes just running the combo update can bring a misbehaving installation back to stability (even if you are already running 10.4.11)

Mac OS X 10.4.11 Combo Update (PPC)

Mac OS X 10.4.11 Combo Update (Intel)

How did you get the Combo update (just curious)?

Do you get any errors if you execute the following command at the command line (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app)?
Code:
cd /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/Resources/MacOS/
./Safari

Wow! Do not do that. Pop in your Tiger install DVD, boot holding down 'C' and run Repair Disk. If all is well try Repair Permissions but you may well be up for a system install after formatting the hard drive.

There were all sorts of updates in this and hope you get things back together again.
