I just got the new Safari 5.0 I downloaded because my Mac told me there was a new version that I should be getting.

But when I try to run this new version of the application -- nothing happens! I mean the program seems to be working but nothing appears on the screen and so when I try to see my top sites a little window shows up but it just doesn't show anything. Then 3 seconds later the program shuts down!

I don't know why this is happening; ideas?

  • Mac OS X version 10.5.8
  • 2.66ghz intel core 2 duo
  • 4gb 1067 MHz DDR3

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

  • Do you have SIMBL installed? Perhaps there's a plugin that's conflicting with this new version of Safari.
  • Delete everything in the /Users/<YourUserName>/Library/Caches/ folder
  • Download and install Safari again and see if the same happens.
