Where are settings stored for Safari Adblock?

Where are the settings stored for Safari adblock? As in, where are they actually stored on the drive.

I see that Chrome and Opera can use Dropbox syncing but Safari cannot. Is there another way to get Safari's adblock settings on all of my Macs? iCloud sync maybe?

    Hi luomat,

    1. Open Finder, click the Go menu, hold down the Option key to show hidden items, and select Library.
    2. Open Safari > LocalStorage and look for the file:
      safari-extension_com.betafish.adblockforsafari-(letters & numbers).localstorage.

    There's no automated way to copy AdBlock's settings to additional Macs. You can save your custom filters in a text file somewhere and just paste them into a new installation of AdBlock. The rest of the options are enable/disable, so at least they're pretty quickly set. :)
