Missing e for Safari: Not Working? Try This!
If you’ve installed Missing e for Safari on an Apple computer, there is a small chance you may find that the extension won’t actually run. This is often a problem with the Safari browser, but can sometimes be fixed without too much difficulty.
If you see this e. button in your browser toolbar, you’ll know Missing e is installed.
However, if you don’t see this e. button beside the logout button on your Tumblr dashboard, Missing e isn’t actually running properly.
For some (but not all) users, this can be fixed with one of these simple steps. After trying each one, remember to reload your dashboard to see if the missing e. shows up. When it does, you are done!
If your Safari browser is not up-to-date, getting the newest version can sometimes fix this problem. To do so on an Apple computer, simply open the Apple menu at the top left of your screen and open Software Update. Follow the instructions to apply any updates available for Safari.
Disable and Re-Enable Missing e
Maybe updating Safari didn’t help, maybe yours is up-to-date. The next step is to disable and re-enable Missing e. Follow these instructions in the FAQ, and make sure to follow the optional step of restarting Safari.
Disable and Re-Enable Extensions
Okay, still not working? Sorry about that! Try this:
- Open the Safari Preferences window (click the Safari menu in the menubar and click on Preferences)
- Click on the Extensions tab in the Safari Preferences window
- Click the big ON/OFF switch to turn it to the OFF position
- Restart Safari
- After getting back to the Extensions tab, click the big ON/OFF switch to turn it back to the ON position
Reinstall Missing e
No luck yet? The next thing to try is to uninstall and reinstall Missing e. It is best to save your settings, because uninstalling Missing e will reset them to the defaults.
Now for the tougher bit!
If none of these solutions has worked for you, the problem may be with some internal Safari settings. Follow these steps to see if this applies to you.
- Quit Safari.
- Open the Terminal app and paste this command into it and hit return:
defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu 1
- Start Safari. A new Debug item will appear in the menubar.
- In the Debug menu, if the item “Use Multi-process Windows” is not checked, turn it on.
- You can now disable the Debug menu by opening the Terminal app and pasting this command in it and hitting return:
defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu 0
- Restart Safari.
Nothing has worked?
If none of these solutions solves your problem, the issue with your browser may be more serious. I suggest consulting Safari support on Apple’s website.
Missing e for Safari invalid? - Please Download Again!
I created the most recent version of the Safari extension with a new Apple tool.
For some reason, this caused older versions of the extension to become invalid.
If this has happened to you, all you need to do is download Missing e for Safari again. Don’t worry, as long as you don’t reset Safari or clear local storage data, all of your Missing e bookmarks should be preserved (you’ll have to reconfigure your settings, though).
Safari users - Option checkbox for “Don’t expand/minimize all thumbnails…” is fixed
This issue was brought to my attention by a couple of Safari users. Basically, the checkbox that disabled the Tumblr dash feature that expands and minimizes all thumbnails in a post at the same time was not being loaded correctly in the Missing e settings page.
The checkbox still worked, mind you. Turning it on or off would still change the setting, but every time you loaded the Missing e settings page, it may not have set the checkbox to the correct value.
This was only a problem for Safari users, and has been fixed in version 2.3.16!
If you have an earlier version of Safari and want this issue fixed immediately, just follow these update instructions.
Missing e Safari users out there!
If you use any of the Missing e features that open pages in new tabs, this setting in the Safari preferences will be helpful to you!
Unlike Chrome and Firefox, Safari will, by default, load any link that requests a new window in a new window instead of a new tab. You can change this behaviour in Safari’s preferences: in the “Tabs” section, change the setting “Open pages in tabs instead of windows” to “Automatically”.

Customize - Theme Background Image Uploading Issue fixed!
Some Safari users have noticed that they are unable to change the background when customizing their themes with Missing e installed.
I’ve just updated the extension (for Safari) to version 1.0.51 which should fix the problem. If anybody still has issues, let me know.
IT HAS ARRIVED! Get it here.
All of my old userscripts (plus MANY new features) have been improved and incorporated into new extensions/add-ons for Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
