Safari won't launch

Hello -

I recently upgraded my PowerBook G4 to Leopard (10.5.1). I can no longer launch Safari. The dock icon bounces, then closes. A window appears reading, "The application Safari quit unexpectedly...."; and provides options to Ignore, Report, Relaunch.

I have already trashed the preferences.plist, history.plist, bookmarks.plist, and downloads.plist files. These actions have not solved the problem.

Relevant Console messages are as follows:

Thanks for your help. I can provide additional information about my system if needed.

Are you now, or have you in the past, used any Safari "plugins" at all?

If you create a brand new user and log into it, does Safari crash in that new user?

Are you running the version of Safari bundled with Leopard, or another one (such as a nightly build)? Have you installed a nightly build in the past, say when you were still on Tiger?

Is Safari in your /Applications folder? Or somewhere else?

Hello Trevor -

Safari is in my applications folder. I actually rarely use Safari, and I haven't installed anything other than what OS X Leopard placed on my computer, or whatever was left from Tiger and the standard software updates. Nor have I installed any 3rd party applications, though I could be mistaken.

I also created a guest user account, logged into that, and Safari still won't work (provides the same error message).
