The following message appears:

Safari can't install this extension
An error occurred while installing the extension "AdBlock".

Many users have reported that resetting Safari through the Safari menu > Reset Safari... > Reset resolves this issue.

Update 22nd October 2014: We have created a script that resolves this issue without requiring a reset. Download the archive, unzip it, and run the app that will walk you through the process.
