Does anyone know why my Bitwarden extension has stopped working for Safari on my macOS? A few weeks ago I had it and it was working fine, but recently it disappeared from safari. I gave this a few weeks thinking it would come back, but still no luck. I checked my browser preferences and it’s gone from my extensions tab. Does anyone know what I can do to get it back and working? I also have Bitwarden downloaded from the App Store and using the latest version.
MacOS Version: Monterey version 12.6
Safari Version: Version 16.0
OnyX and similar tools supports rebuilding the Launch Services database.
Install Safari Technical Preview, it seems to register itself as the new handler for Web Extensions. Which also makes the extensions available in the regular Safari application.
The following command re-registers Safari to the Launcher Service and worked on my machine /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -f -R /Applications/Safari.app.
If that doesn’t work try /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user which rebuilds the whole launcher service. Note the machine may slow down and finder can take a moment to become responsive while it rebuilds the database again.
