Safari will not open after I updated to OS 10.4.11. I get the message:


SIMBL Error

Safari 3.0.4 (v523.12) has not been tested with the plugin (null) (null) (v0.62). As a precaution, it has not been loaded. Please contact the plugin developer for further information.

I do have a backup on an external hard drive (using Super Duper). I don't want to do a full system restore. Is there a plugin I can drag over? What would be the easiest way to get things back to normal?

    Hi Arlene,

    It sounds like you have [AcidSearch|http://www.pozytron.com/?acidsearch] installed. Try following the uninstallation instructions at the end of the [AcidSearch|http://www.pozytron.com/?acidsearch] web page.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi,

    I'm still pretty sure that error is due to AcidSearch.
    Can you try downloading v0.62 from the website mentioned above and run the included uninstaller?

    There are more than one location for third party software to be installed:
    /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/ and /Library/InputManagers/SIMBL directory.
    They can also be installed in either the HD/Library (all users) or the HD/Users/your user account/Library folders.
    Some are inside the Application Support folder (either location) or the Input Managers folder (either location).
    Update that third party add on or remove it entirely is an upgrade isn't available.
