View Full Version : Messages app constantly losing connection & crashing

Aug 11, 2012, 12:25 PM
I only use my AIM account through the Messages app, and it constantly keeps losing connection, signing off and on rapidly in the background until it won't let it attempt anymore for a while. Meanwhile, my internet connection is fine and continue to browse the web while it's open in the background.

Been having this issue since I upgraded to ML. Coming from iChat on OS X 10.7, I never had this issue before. I prefer iChat, and being able to detach chat windows from the buddy list window. I could use the AIM app, but that sometimes doesn't work after I'm locked out from Messages failed attempts to connect. I just want my Apple apps to work. Anyone else having similar issues? Thanks for reading

Same here, I've had this issue since Lion and now even more with ML.
