When I opened Safari just now, I got a message saying all my extensions are no longer valid or something like that. Sure enough they are all gone! I really need OnePassword. I cant figure out how to get it back.

Help!


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3), Safari 5.1.4

    Mac OS X (10.7.3), Safari 5.1.4   <  your profile

     

    If that is correct, your system software is outdated.

     

    Click your Apple menu icon top left in your screen. From the drop down menu click Software Update.

     

    1Password is available from the App Store. Click the App Store icon App Store image for ASC.jpeg in your Dock, or your Applications folder.

     

    Just in case you aren't aware, the Mac OS X native app Keychain Access located in HD > Applications > Utillties stores your passwords. No need for a third party password manager.

    I had this happen once. I'm not sure what causes it. In at least some cases, it's due to the expiration of the developer certificate that's used to codesign the extension. Other times, it may be caused by a problem with the server that Safari checks to see whether the certificates have been revoked. I was able to reinstall the extensions, but only after a delay of a few hours.

    I failed to mention that I was in an airport using their free wifi when this happened. I got a batch of error messages saying my extensions had expired. i know they didnt all expire at the same time. When I went to Safari preferences and then to extensions, there were NO extensions listed. Im just not sure how to get them back. I need my OnePassword!

    Im now at my mother's house using her wifi, which I do regularly without problems. But no extensions.

    My software is up to date. I always keep it so.

    In the Finder, select Go Go to Folder... from the menu bar, copy the text on the line below into the box that opens, and press return:

    ~/Library/Safari/Extensions

    A folder will open. Open all the items it contains.
