The problem is the same. When I click home page it looks like Safari is trying to load all my bookmarks at once.
Click on Safari in the top left and choose Preferences

Click on General. Make sure New web page opens with and new tab opens with is set to Homepage

Delete what is listed as your homepage and re-type it or put in any website as your homepage here.

Click on the red circle in the top left to close.

Quit Safari and see how it works now

That did not seem to do anything. Safari tries to open all bookmarks when I click homepage button.
Lets delete the Safari preference file.

Click on the picture of a face all the way on the left-hand side of your dock.

This will bring up your home folder. Go into a folder called Library and then another folder called Preferences.

Delete the file called com.apple.Safari.plist
Deleting this file resets your default home page when starting Safari.
To reset this, Do the following:
Start Safari
Click Safari in the top left and choose preferences
Click General Tab and type in what you would like your default home page to be next to Home
