Hi,

If you can help I would be very grateful. For some time Safari (v4.0.3) (since an update of OS Tiger) - began to show a plugin error when opening

- plugin not loaded error message -
The plugin in question is listed in the message as - (null) (null) (v0.62)

So it has no actual name and is therefore hard to find in the installed plugins list in safari

causes me no pain really, just bugs me that I cannot resolve the issue, as I am a bit geeky and want my mac to run smoothly as it usually does except for the covert plugin.

I have followed these steps to no avail:

1. Removed all plugins from system drive library
2. Removed all plugins from user library
3. Removed Safari plist file

So I cannot see why or where the problem resides. (Or indeed what to call it!!!)

If you have either of these, remove them.

AcidSearch
Safari Stand

IF you still have the error, look for and remove SIMBL in:


Library/Application Support
Library/Input Managers
Users//Library/Application Support
Users//Library/Input Managers

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

You have an old version of SIMBL installed; the current version is 0.8.2 and it's located in /Library/InputManagers or Home/Library/InputManagers. You need to remove it or update it with the current version.

Hi Guys,

Thanks to both of you - I downloaded and swapped out the SIMBL version - this had the effect of changing the error message to (AcidSearch) (null).

I then found AcidSearch in Applications Support and threw it to the lions in the trash

Worked first time, many thanks for the help
