    Setting an application back to <None>
    I was recently trying to get a plug-in to work and i was plain stupid and set the default application for it to open with from <None> to an actual application. Is there any way to set this back to <None> for my peace of mind? I have not seen it actually effect anything yet and as far as i know all the plug-ins are still functioning properly it's just that all of them are now set to open with this other application when i don't want them to be.

    Can you delete the nplug in and trash it, download a new version and let it install and run at the default setting?

    I tried that and it just has it saved as the same thing as soon as i download it unfortunately. It did a mass change where all file types like that open with that program but the other plug ins seem unaffected as far as functionality goes but the one i actually changed by hand in the first place does not work even after re-downloading it. The change stays.

    Maybe a program such as AppTrap or AppDelete is required to completely remove the plug-in. Download one of them, move plug-in to Trash and all associated files should go with it. Empty trash, reboot and try downloading again.
