    Peter,

    Thank you for commenting.

    I stand corrected in that Safari is indeed installed in

    /Applications/Safari

    I should have said that it was installed from the administrator account and
    was installed in the default location.

    There is no restriction placed on the user account as to what applications
    can be used.

    What happens is that when Safari is launched from the user account by
    clicking on the Safari icon in the dock, the icon bounces a few times and
    then stops. A visit then to Force Quit will show that Safari is "not
    responding."

    If you use the terminal application to "ls -l" the Safari app,
    what does it say?

    In other words, issue the command:

    ls -l /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/MacOS/Safari

    On my machine (where everything works fine), it says:

    -rwxrwxr-x 1 root admin 883616 22 Mar 17:26
    /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/MacOS/Safari

    Assuming you see user/group = root/admin as above,
    if the "rwx" stuff on the left looks different for you than
    it looks for me, go in as Administrator and issue the command:

    chmod 775 /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/MacOS/Safari

    Then the "ls -l" should look as shown above. Then see if it
    works right for garden-variety users.

    (Just a hunch....)

    -P.

    It is my understanding that unlike disk repair, permission repair should
    definitely be done from the startup disk rather than another drive or
    CD. Not sure that would help you but couldn't hurt.

    There is a hint on macosxhints about how to make Safari faster. Maybe some
    of these will work for you:

    Jason,

    Well I did as you suggested and it didn't hurt but it sure as shootin' did
    something that fixed the problem! Safari now runs just fine. There were two
    files (deep down in the system types) that underwent permission repair and
    now Safari is running just fine.

    Many, many thanks.

    Jim
