I can't get safari extensions working.  When I go to safari:preferences:extensions, it is blank.  there are no options to turn it on.  Any ideas?

Mac OS X (10.7.2), Itunes 10.5.1(42)

    I am not sure what you are trying to do - if you have no extensions installed, I think the default is off.  If you want to browse extensions, open Safari, click on Safari>safari extensions.

    Uninstall SIMBL as follows.


    Select Go Go to Folder… from the Finder menu bar, then enter the following text in the box that opens:




    A folder will open. From that folder, delete the items listed below (some may be absent.) You may be prompted for your administrator login password.


    Application Support/SIMBL





    Log out and log back in.


    Make sure you never reinstall SIMBL. It’s likely to come bundled with another third-party system modfication that depends on it. If you want trouble-free computing, avoid software that makes miraculous changes to other software, especially built-in applications. The only real exception to that rule is Safari extensions, which are mostly safe, and are easy to get rid of when they don’t work. SIMBL and its dependents are not Safari extensions.

    I have the same issue as Gregory.

    Contrary to your suggestion, there is nothing of the sort in my library.

    Oh, and if it helps: I'm using Safari 6.
