Safari 3.x and PithHelmet

First, if you can't even install PithHelmet (because your Safari isn't recognized), use Pacifist to get the PithHelmet.bundle onto your desktop. It's a SIMBL plug, so make the following directory (if not already there) and place this plugin within it:

/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/PithHelmet.bundle

If you're using a newer Safari with an older OS (Tiger), here's how to use PithHelmet:

  • In Safari, select File>About Safari.
  • Note the version/build number in parentheses, i.e., (4525.18).
  • Quit Safari.
  • Navigate to /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/PithHelmet.bundle.
  • Control click to show package contents.
  • Open bundle and go to Contents.
  • Double click or open info.plist in your favorite text editor.hange MaxBundleVersion to the current Safari version. This is to match the current Safari version/build.

It will then look like this:



Save and relaunch Safari.
