How to get rid of Community Toolbar in Safari?

Posted on


Every time I start Safari or Finder an error appears:

We’re sorry, but the Safari browser version you are currently using does not support the community toolbar.

How do I delete this toolbar? Other forums suggest deleting it from the “toolbar” folder, but there is no such folder in my Applications folder.


This seems to have “infected” multiple locations in /Library. First, quit Safari. Might not hurt to also run the following command from a Terminal (it will prompt you for your password):

sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchAgents/com.conduit.loader.agent.plist

Then, delete the following files/folders by moving them to Trash and emptying it.

Note that / is your Macintosh HD, and the Library folder might be invisible. To access it, press ⌘⇧G in a Finder window and enter /Library.

/Library/Application Support/Conduit
/Library/Receipts/<Toolbar name>.pkg
/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/CT2285220.bundle
/Users/<User name>/Library/Application Support/Conduit

That should be it, according to forum posts and this article.
