Safari 12 Crashes Spotlight in Sierra—Here’s the Fix


(Jammy) #23

I’m not sure your directions are complete. Don’t you first have to disable SIP to edit these files? When I try to save with BBedit I just get an error that it can’t save it maybe because I have SIP enabled?

Also, like someone else has mentioned in another thread, I don’t see the existence of the com.apple.weblocation string in the plist.

Also, where you say “Location:” doesn’t match up with what I see in my plist. Do I paste everything you wrote here in the plist somewhere?

<string>QLGenerator</string><key>LSItemContentTypes</key>
<array>
	<string>public.data</string>
	<string>com.apple.internet-location</string> <!-- sierra-webloc-crashfix  -->
</array>

OR just this part somewhere?

<string>com.apple.internet-location<string>

Very confusing.
