Hi I am Ashik. I think i can help you

We can try to delete Safari's Preferences and see if that helps...

(Deleteing Preferences will also delete your saved Username and Passwords, cookies, caches, history etc)

Close Safari and goto ~/Library/Preferences/ and move the "com.apple.safari.plist" into desktop

If you can't find the preference , then goto here
~/Users/[yourname]/Library/Preferences and move the file "com.apple.safari.plist" into desktop.

Now open Safari and see if the problem solved or not...

Ashik

I moved com.apple.safari.plist to desktop. I then tried to open safari, same problem. When I click the safari icon a blank safari screen comes up, after about 5 or 10 sec it is replaced with the warning msg "problem may have been caused by the ct_plugins plug-in.
Expert:  Ashik replied 7 years ago.
ct_plugins ?? Did you installed any plugins like Vuze Toolbar ?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Vuze is on my desktop. I've never really used it. I just clicked on it and it works.
Expert:  Ashik replied 7 years ago.
I think the problem is with the Vuze toolbar, Its not compatible with Safari. So we can remove it.


1. Close Safari and goto Macintosh HD (home disk) and open Applications folder.
2. Scroll down to Toolbars and click on Vuze Toolbar <Toolbar Name>
3. If you can see Uninstall, double-click on it
4. Fill in the “User Name & Password” and click the OK button to uninstall the toolbar.

There was no Vuze Toolbar at that location.
Expert:  Ashik replied 7 years ago.
Can't you see anything relates to Vuze in that folder ?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No, the only application under Toolbars was btjunkie, which has been used many times. I'm going to uninstall btjunkie and see what happens.
Expert:  Ashik replied 7 years ago.
Try this;
Close Safari and goto Macintosh HD (home disk) and open Library folder.
Then Open Internet Plugins folder and move all items to trash (Don't empty the trash)

Also Goto Macintosh HD/Users/[yourname]/ and open Library folder. Then Open Internet Plugins folder and move all items to trash (Don't empty the trash)

Open Safari and let me know how it goes...
