    Anyone have any ideas on how I can get my Safari to it's default state.

    I had Safari Enhancer before my upgrade to Tiger.
    I did the Archive and Install method and kept my Safari Enhancer
    active in my Safari application.

    I am having a hard time now trying to recover my Safari
    without having Safari Enhancer installed.

    I found somewhere that I needed to get a new copy of Safari.

    Do you guys think that's the only way, or has anyone out there
    been able to uninstall Safari Enhancer from a Safari browser
    running on Tiger.

    Thanks.

    I dunno, couldn't you just dump the enhancer.app and .pref files?

    I have done that.
    It still shows up in my menu item bar 'Debug'

    Duff-Man says....deleted the Safari Enhancer app and prefs won't do anything. What Safari Enhancer does is modify your Safari prefs....so try quitting safari, move the com.apple.safari.plist file from your home/library/preferences folder to somewhere else (don't just delete it in case you want to go back to it)...relaunch Safari......oh yeah!

    Thanks Duff Man. You Rock!

    Great tip. Removed my 'Debug' menu item.

    Duff-Man says....if all you wanted was to remove the debug menu (and not reset any of the other settings changed with Safari Enhancer) you didn't need to trash the whole pref file - you can just open up the terminal and run "defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeDebugMenu 0" (without the quoatation marks) and that would get rid of it.....oh yeah!
