    What the heck is this all about?

    Sparkle is an open-source update system that third-party developers can use to deploy app updates outside of the App Store. One of your installed apps seems to be incorrectly configured.

    Thank you. Do you think I have the app as an extension on a browser, or is it an app in the Applications folder?

    Sparkle is a framework that is bundled within Mac apps, so it is likely in your Applications directory. You can get a list of applications with that framework using this Terminal command:
    Code:
    find /Applications -name Sparkle.framework

    If you want to find out which app is causing this error, then you should check out each one and try to update it manually. Once you found it, you should check the developer’s website to see if a new version is available or report the problem to them.
