Just try this

  • open the Finder, from the Finder menu bar click Go > Go to Folder.

  • Type and hit Go: ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist

  • com.apple.Safari.plist move this file from the Preferences folder to anywhere else.

  • Relaunch Safari. If Safari runs good, move the .plist file to the Trash. If not, move it back to the Preferences folder of Safari.

Still crashed after the file is deleted. –  lu yuan Aug 4 '12 at 10:10
