Mac Help quits

in macOS edited January 2014
using 10.3.3, mac help instantly quits after launching under finder.

if launched from any other application, it quits upon entering a search.

and i tried trashing the home>library>cache>help folder, which fixed it, for all of like 2 minutes before it broke again.

    Does Safari work or does it crash also? Have you changed or added fonts?

    I went from OS 9 to Panther and had problems with Help and Safari. I had a font conflict. Once I found the affected fonts and deselected them, everything worked fine.
