I have been having frequent troubles with Java Plug-in that crashes Safari almost on a regular basis (5-10 times/day)


The displayed message contains a plug-in named "ibjvm.dylib"


It started to become frusturating therefore I was wondering;


1- If there is a quick solution for a non-tech person?

2- If there is not, how can I get my programs running back as it used to before I purchased and downloaded OSX Mountain Lion. (Version 10.8.2) What would you advise? How do I get back to Safari 6.0.1 or shall I get back to Snow Leopard?


Btw I use Safari 6.0.2 and I guess Java 7, I am not so sure and don't know where to find it.


Any answer is highly appreciated.

MacBook Pro (15-inch 2.4/2.2 GHz), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:


    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)


    ☞ In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.


    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.


    Step 1


    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left.


    Enter the name of the crashed application or process in the Filter text field. Post the messages from the time of the last crash, if any — the text, please, not a screenshot.


    When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.

    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into a message.


    Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Edit it out by search-and-replace in a text editor before posting.


    Step 2


    Still in the Console window, look under User Diagnostic Reports for crash reports related to the process. The report name starts with the name of the crashed process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report and post the entire contents — again, the text, not a screenshot. In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.) Please don’t post shutdownStall, spin, or hang logs — they're very long and not helpful.

    Apologies for my curiosity but how do I solve the problem with this description? To cut short, I don't see a relation with the problem and your answer. 


    This plug-in crash is pretty common, it is just never mentioned on Apple support.

    Are you looking for UUID? If that is the case it is;


    Anonymous UUID:    148161CD-84E1-5473-253E-8E91D0B3A82F

    If you would like me to try to help, please provide the information requested. The UUID is the one piece of information I asked you not to provide.

    I know that already, it did not work. Any other ideas?

    If you had followed the instructions in that support article, you could not possibly be getting the crash, because the Oracle software would have been removed. If you didn't follow the instructions, what did you do?

    Hi berkek,


    I have the same problem (using a SCM SCL010 reader) with both Java 7 and 6.


    Did you manage to fix the problem?




  • berkek Level 1 Level 1

    Hi Thomas,


    Unfortunately not. I am getting used to live with it. If you ever find a solution and let me know, I'll be very glad.

    Thank you! This fixed this very annoying issue. I did uninstall java 7 and reset safari first. Other than that did exactly what you said Re-enable the Apple-provided Java instructions.
