    My extensions (I only have 2: 1password and Reddit RES) have disappeared a couple times already.

    They do not show up in Safari>Preferences>Extensions, and I have to re-downlaod them every time.

    Anyone know what is causing this? And a solution?

    Safari 7.0.5
    OS10.9.4

    Are you running any third party cleanup/maintenance utilities like Clean my Mac or that sort of thing. Some of those utilities have been known to erase extensions.

    Thanks for your response. I figured it out--user error. I was deleting them by mistake when clearing out my downloads. Extensions download straight to the Extensions folder I think. I was deleting the contents of my extensions folder rather than deleting the contents of my downloads folder.
