Chosen Solution

Turn Off Airport

Delete the User/Library/Preferences Safari.plist file (it could be corrupted). While Airport is still off launch and reset safari - Remember to deselect any items you don’t want to clear, e.g. save your bookmarks to a separate file first so you can recover them.

Quit Safari.

Turn on Airport and launch Safari.

Good Luck,

Good idea to delete the plist file

Try running software update or reinstalling safari. If that doesn't work, the problem should not persist for other web browsers, such as Firefox (which works great on older macs such as the iBook), Camino, or Opera.
