Night Eye extension not showing in the Safari extensions list

| Night Eye

If you have the Night Eye app installed on your macOS 11 or higher, but still don’t see it in the extensions list, read further.

There is an issue with freshly installed Safari Extensions. We did our best to communicate it with Apple but they still haven’t fixed the problem.
Until they resolve the bug, there are 2 easy solutions.

Before going through the solutions, please make sure that your macOS is up to date. If you are going to update it now, please make sure to restart it before proceeding further.


Solution 1 – Install Safari Technology Preview

It works on macOS 10.15, macOS 11, and macOS 12 and later.

The first solution is by installing the Safari Technology Preview, which will refresh the Safari extension list and the “Night Eye” extension will appear in the list of extensions.


Solution 2 – Rebuilding the Safari Register

The other solution would be to run a specific code in your Terminal. That will refresh all the installed Safari extensions and solve the problem with hidden Safari Extensions.

  • Open your Terminal app from the Launchpad
  • And type this code:
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
  • Then it runs that code for about +/- 30 seconds.
  • Now it is ready, and you can open Safari, and the extension will be now visible in your “Extensions” panel
  • Restart your Mac after that “Night Eye” extension should be present at the “Extensions” panel

The extensions will be reindexed and shown again on the panel.
