    hey, guys!
    so i installed a while ago this xkit extension for tumblr and everything was working well and all. a while agp i started having problems with the website on both safari and firefox and decided to uninstall that, excuse my french, ****. i had no problem uninstalling it from firefox, but can't say the same about safari.

    on the website of xkit, it says i should go to safari - preferences - extensions and just uninstall it from there. however, when i go into the preferences, there's just a blank page.
    why is it blank, where are all the extensions and is there another way to remove that from my safari?

    PLEASE HELPPP

    In the Finder Go menu, choose Go to Folder and enter

    Code:
    ~/Library/Safari/Extensions
    See if there's a file there related to the extension. If so, remove it.

    1) Click anywhere on your desktop (not in any window).

    2) The name Finder should then appear next to the :apple: at the top-left corner of your screen.

    3) To the right of Finder, click on Go. That should open a menu, and in that menu, choose Go to Folder.

    4) Enter the following in the Go to Folder box:

    Code:
    ~/Library/Safari/Extensions
    5) In that folder, see if there's a file whose name suggests that it's related to whatever you are trying to delete. If so, remove that file.
