Why does clicking on "Preferences" (to change home page) shut down Safari?

November 30

What can I do to prevent Safari from immediately shutting down when I click on "Preferences" in an attempt to change my home page? Any help will be greatly appreciated.



Hi Mark
Welcome to Apple Discussions
Sounds like the Preference file is corrupt.
In the Finder, drag to the desktop the com.apple.safari.plist folder found in your User Account>Library>Preferences folder.
Restart Safari. Open the preference file. If no crash you'll need to reset your Safari preferences to your liking, plus any custom settings found in the Edit Menu (spelling) or View Menu (status bar, bookmarks bar, custom icons in the "Customize Address Bar" ).
