I deleted Splash from my MBA. Every time I activate Safari I get an error message "Error Safari 6.0 (v8536.25) has not been tested with the plugin SplashID.bundle (null) (v6.0.4). As a precaution, it has not been loaded. Please contact the plugin developer for further information."

 

I do not see any plug ins relating to the Splash program. How do I get rid of this error? Any comments are welcome.

    Back up all data.

     

    Quit Safari. In the Finder, select Go Go to Folder... from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-G. Copy the line of text below into the box that opens, and press return:

     

    /Library/Internet Plug-ins

     

    From the folder that opens, remove any items that have the letters “SplashID” in the name. You may be prompted for your login password. Then launch Safari and test.

     

    If you still have the issue, repeat with this line:

     

    ~/Library/Internet Plug-ins

    I have been able to access the Library/Internet Plug-ins but there is nothing there with Splash related plug-ins. The ~/Library/Internet Plug-ins produced noting but a clink sound. The only item that I do not recognize is "nslQTScriptablePlugin.xpt".

    The "SplashID" application has an uninstaller. Please use it.

    I did the uninstall using a 3rd party program which should have removed all the little tentacles a program brings. Unfortunately what I should have done is perfom an uninstall from Safar first and then uninstall the program. I attempting to reload the program in order to uninstall it correctly.

    Those third-party "utilities" that purport to uninstall software are useless at best. Never use any of them. In fact, never use any "utility" on the Mac.

    Hi, I am receiving the same message as jmsfmtex.  There is no reference to Splash ID in either of my Plug-in Libraries.  I also used the uninstaller for SplashID.  I have not used SplashID on this particular machine since I uninstalled it earlier this year.  I recently started receiving the message jmsfmtex referred to.  Any chance you might have any additional thoughts on it?

     

    Thanks for your replies!

    Remove plug-in

    1.) Open the SplashID desktop app

    2.) Navigate from Menu bar "File" -> "Plugin for Safari" -> "Uninstall".

     

    I could not find it in either Library/Internet Plug-ins nor ~/Library/Internet Plug-ins

     

    Cheers!

    This saved my bacon and worked for me! 

    Thank you, jonny.rocket!

    If you're like me and only had a demo of Splash ID and didn't choose to buy the program, the "uninstall" suggestion won't work.  It doesn't give you any option to uninstall unless you have a current license or purchase one. 

     

    To get around this you just have to delete:

     

    /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/SplashID.bundle

     

    That will take care of the problem.  Don't do this if you use the SplashID program though as it will basically delete the app.

    Thanks, jonny.rocket!  Solved my problem too.  Wish I could mark your reply as such, but can't figure out how to do that...

    This one worked for me! Thanks.

    Thanks, I did this and it worked to stop the error message. I do use SplashID version 7.1.2 and it still works fine. I think this was left over from an old version prior to Mavericks.
