I have unfortunately picked up a piece of malware that overwrote my Safari homepage and "open new window with" setting in Mavericks. I just reinstalled to a backup image so the malware is gone, but left me with an open question.
In previous OS X versions, I would be able to delete all the Safari-related folders and
com.apple.safari.plist-like files under
~/Library/Preferences and that would reset Safari to a minty fresh state. That no longer seems to be the case.
Even though I delete every single file related to Safari in my user library folder, if I set the homepage to google, and delete all those files, it stays as google - a.k.a. does not revert back to Safari's default
Is there some other 'hidden' place Mavericks stores its settings for Safari?
