Regularly, after some time using Safari, 3rd party icons in Safari toolbar become blank.

Restarting Safari fixes the problem, but after some time it happens again.


  • Are there any relevant log messages in Console / system.log? – Lri May 4 '13 at 16:04
  • Did you try to disable extensions and observe Safari's behavior then? – nohillside May 12 '13 at 7:55

This happens to me as well. Only 3rd party buttons go blank.

  1. Go to Preferences > Extensions
  2. Turn Extensions OFF
  3. Turn Extensions ON

The icons should come back.


This looks to be a valid bug with the Safari browser. You can file a report here.

  • Do you have any evidence that this is a Safari bug? Might be a problem with one of the 3rd party extensions as well. – nohillside May 12 '13 at 7:55
