    Whenever i install an extension, after quitting the browser it just gets removed, i have tried this with a lot of different ones so i know its not just one single extension, i also just have one extension and my extensions folder is 2GB?

    Are you trying to download the extensions from Safari Preferences or Safari Preferences Gallery? --Because I had that problem too. Not with every extension though, just a few. However, I found that I could download the troublemakers & they'd "stick" if I went to each Developer's website and downloaded directly from there.

    Installed Safari extensions and their settings are stored in the user folder below. Open Finder then hit shift-command-g (all three at once) and pasture in the path below then hit enter. This will display to local storage folder contents.

    Install a couple extensions and you should see entries in this folder for them. Is that not happening?

    Code:
    ~/Library/Safari/LocalStorage
    Are you maybe running an app that auto cleans browsing history or cookies. Some of those app delete local storage and will cause this problem.
