    Hi,

    Its safari v5 that has the problem not the update itself. There is another thread on here about it.

    Heads up - Safari crash for network users - DO NOT install Safari 5

    Ah. I saw that original thread but didnt think much of it, then yesterday I had the problem on one mac. Reinstall was the only solution. Thankfully most others are either 10.6 or they already use firefox instead. Will advise people just in case though

    There is a fix, which I can tell you did work for me, but I only applied it to my own machine as that was the only one I had fortunately updated, so not knowing your setup, I can't guarantee it will work for you.

    However, run terminal and type in :

    defaults write com.apple.Safari WebIconDatabaseEnabled -bool NO

    You should then find Safari will launch.
