    hello
    I am new to this website and this is my first post.
    First of all, I would like to say Hello to everyone.

    Now, I am actually have some problems with Safari and Leopard. The problem that I am having with safari is that it won't let me customize the tool bar. When I click customize tool bar then everything stops working. I tried re-installing safari but it didn't help. Also, the safari doesn't have an address bar at this moment so basically, I can't even use it. I forgot to mention that I tired to install BoPeepers and Piclens and after that safari started to give me problems.
    The second problem is with leopard, it kind a freezes after 5-10 minutes and it is really slow at times.
    I would really like to fix this problem with out re-installing windows.

    I would also really if you guys can help me.

    Thanks.

    Were you successful in installing those? If so, try un-installing them and see how that works out.

    Yea i think so but i don't know how to un-install them. When I open Safari it doesn't even show any option for Pic Lens or BoPeepers. Is there any way I can completely un-install safari with all the add ons and do a fresh install after?

    The OP says "Safari and Leopard" so I'm a bit confused too!

    You mean OS or hardware? I'm pretty sure the OP is having problems in OS X.

    As far as Safari goes, try deleting the safari app, then delete "Home/Library/Preferences/com.apple.safari.plist" After that's done, reinstall Safari. As far as the other problem is concerned, I have no idea. It doesn't sound like you're going to get out of it without an OS reinstall tho. Good luck, let us know if you have any success with safari.

    It depends on how it was installed. If it instructed you to drag and drop it into the Application folder, then delete it there and empty the trash. If it was an installer, run the installer again and hopefully there is an option to uninstall, or there maybe an uninstaller file that came with the package.

    Piclens doesn't support Safari 3 so maybe that could be an issue?

    Yea may be, I don't know how to uninstall it. According to the Piclens website "You can uninstall via the “Remove PicLens” menu under the View menu in Safari". But there's no remove PicLens option under view menu.

    I'm looking to uninstall piclens too. But on the new version of safari you can't because it doesn't work.

    Does anyone no where the files are located?

    Try a Spotlight search? Or perhaps AppZapper.

    Spotlight doesn't find it and AppZapper wouldn't work because it's not located in the App Folder

    The only thing I have to suggest is searching using only some of the letters instead of the whole name...I know sometimes things save themselves with abbreviated titles, so maybe try only the first half, or without vowels? You'll probably get lot of extra results you don't want, but you can sort through them.

    When I first upgraded to Tiger, I had some troubles with things not letting me access the toolbars adjustments, but in my case it was due to an older system and easily fixed by extra RAM, which really shouldn't be the case here. Have to checked the system preferences to make sure everything looks fine?

    How to remove piclens

    This is the information I received from PicLens support:

    To remove PicLens from your computer, select the Remove PicLens option from the View > PicLens menu in Safari, or delete the PicLens folder from the /Library/InputManagers folder of your hard disk.
