1.7.1 has a Conflict with Skype on my Mac Pro in Mavericks. It won't even allow Skype to start-up. When i switch back to 1.6 I have no problems.

And why do I have to sign-in lately, ever time I want to post a Comment?

Hello Norio or who ever might have an idea on how to solve my problem with me. I use Mavericks 10.9.2. It's a clean rebuild of my previous system. Afloat is an important app on my machine and EasySIMBL successfully runs it on my machine again. Thank You for that. Unfortunately EasySIMBL prevents FilterForge from working. I get this error message: SendEventToEventTarget(event class '(kEventClassAppleEvent, kEventAppleEvent)'). failed with os status errAEPrivilegeError / telBadHandErr(-10004): / bad handle specified . When I remove all the EasySIMBL files off the system, Filter Forge works again (but afloat doesn't). Anybody know what is going on here and if it is fixable? Thank you.

Since Safari 6.0.4 Easy Simbl caused Safari to exhibit spinning beach ball and hang. Removing it and its extensions restore normal operation

the icons look much better than the snowy grey ones, but run into major conflicts with software and than icons disappeared all together - pity. without the conflicts it would be a really smart addition.

A great improvement over SIMBL. The user account based location is part of it's improved functionality. Looking at the Console logs, EasySIMBL takes preference over SIMBL, though to reduce requests I recommend uninstalling SIMBL using the uninstaller provided with SIMBL http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/18351/simbl

Unfortunately I am having problems getting easysimbl to work when a user's directory is not located on the startup volume. When using it with a user's home folder that is not located on the startup volume I get the message: Cannot find executable for CFBundle 0x7f981187220 (not loaded) For users that have their homefolder on the startup volume it works without problems. Tried it also on 2 users with homefolders on external disk. Both get the same error message, only path to the home folder is different.

The only advantage to this app I can see is that it makes it possible to enable and disable the use of SIMBL and SIMBL plugins in the ~/Library/Applications Support/SIMBL/Plugins folder. If that's what you need to do, then EasySIMBL can be useful. Otherwise, installing SIMBL is easy enough with the standard SIMBL installer - and the package includes an uninstaller as well. By the way, SIMBL is a scripting addition that, when installed, can be found in the Library/Scripting Additions folder. FYI: While mucking about with EasySIMBL I found that I had an old version of ColorfulSidebar in the root SIMBL/Plugins folder, which may have been conflicting with a newer version in my user SIMBL Plugins folder. So be careful you don't have other SIMBL plugins installed in both locations.

Overall while looking good, it only address the users SIMBL folder, not the one in the system library. As many apps install into the system library, this product has very limited use for me. Hopfully the next version will address this issue.

If you want colors back in Mountain Lion use this one in connection with ColorfulSidebar1.1. No relaunching of Finder etc. The old SIMBL just doesn't work properly in Lion/ML. Also recommended for use with this one: SafariStand.
