    Safari 12 doesn't support the Java 8/10 plugin any more. Just says 'unsupported plugin'. Safari 10 & 11 required you to approve each website using Java, but at least it worked.

    Pretty much means there are no Java plugin capable browsers (Personally, I don't care, but my company still has Java sites that they haven't updated with HTML5 sites).

    Ghostery does that too. Canvas fingerprinting was scary when it was new, several years ago, nowadays countering it has become much possible.

    I use AdGuard (standalone app, paid) - probably why I'm not having any problems. I don't use any browser extensions that block ads. I know on my iPhone it does a VPN to remove ads.

    Has anyone else experiencing longer loading times, like webpages loading as you scroll down? Before the update Macrumors site seemed to load for me all at once so if I scrolled down everything was already there. Now when I visit any site when I scroll down to continue reading it appears to be a blank page and I have to wait a few seconds for it to load.

    There are a couple of free Adblockers in the App Store. I searched 'Adblock' and there is Adblock 1.9.1 which has a whitelist option.

    Had the same issue. Extension got disabled right after installing the new Safari and needed to be manually re-enabled (with all the warnings etc.). Is there any ad-blocker extensions that doesn't supposedly 'slow down' my web browsing? AdGuard was already using Safari's native Content Blocking API...

    No, they always update Safari for one release back at-least. Safari 11 was on Sierra.

    This happened to me too. Apparently AdBlock has an app in the app store now that functions the same. I guess they got bullied by apple as supposedly apple is trying to rid of 3rd party safari extensions.

    Happened to me. Got the message that AdBlock was slowing down my browsing even though it wasn't this bad before the update. I just downloaded Adblock from the app store and KaBlock or w.e. its called. Works fine now

    Try restarting your Mac and quickly open App Store and updating. Worked for me.

    I really don't like the direction Apple is taking with this. First, it disabled my ABP which was working great for me and won't allow me to install, forcing to go through the MAS which has a dismal selection of adblockers. And Safari 12 in general is definitely slower than 11 was, in a very noticeable way. I wish I hadn't updated.

    I don't understand why you guys having issue. I have updated to 12 then yes i did get message saying extension is disabled but then i just went and enabled it. I get why apple is doing this. Dev's just need to stop slacking and update the apps

    Uninstalled uBlock Origin after updating to Safari 12; but it appears Apple doesn't prevent you from (re-)installing it - they just warn you it will "slow down Safari". Ignore that and you're golden, it would seem.

    I'll be curious to see if the are more forceful about this as time progresses.

    I wonder if it's finally fully compatible with Facebook since it hasn't been for almost 1 YEAR!

    Facebook doesn't seem to care. Apple apparently not much either.

    I don't want those ugly favicons in my pinned tabs. Anyone know how to get back those monochrome autogenerated(?) favicons used in the previous version? Even if I disable favicons in tabs, they're still visible in my pinned tabs.

    Is uBlock Origin planning an app-store release?

    Start the Activity Monitor-app and kill the process named Spotlight. Then you'll be able to install it.

    Same here. I hope they haven't removed the old option of having the simpler icons. These ones are a real eyesore.

    It makes sense but I didn't realize that the Safari Extension 'uBlock Origin' was able to see my usernames and passwords...

    I have messaged the Side Tree Software, and asked them if they can update their extensions for Safari 12.

    I think they are still active, although the site looks like it's from 2008, rather than 2018.

    Since no one else answered, I can now answer my own question.

    Still not fully Facebook feature compatible with other browsers. HELLO APPLE!

    I mean 2 other browsers can do stuff Safari cannot do. When are they going to get it?

    fantastic, this gave me back Save Tabs to Pinboard and DirectLinks (by Canisbos Computing, which makes those obfuscated indirect links on Google and Facebook direct again)
