I recently installed Safari and used it for about a week. Now when I try to launch it the icon just bounces 3 or 4 times in the dock and disappears. The program never opens. I tried deleting all preferences and reinstalling the program but same result. How can I get this to work? I'm running OSX 10.2.8 on a 400 mHz G3.
