I had nothing but trouble since 10.8

This is by far the worst Mac OS X update since I can remember.
10.7 was stable and bug free from the beginning.
I am tired of disappearing icons, crashes on multiple apps and video problems with dual screens.
I hope they release 10.9 soon. This is ridiculous.

Well, sure... but I can't help but wonder what the comments would look like if the article was "Bug found that instantly crashes any Windows 8 App". We'd all be laughing at how bad Microsoft QC is and "that's why I have a Mac" and how glad we were that we weren't "at risk" and all that jazz.

Instead we're all here saying "oh, no big deal" and "Hey cool, it works on my machine too!"

I was able to replicate the results of the bug. Typed 'File:///' into Text Edit and it crashed immediately.

Precisely. Apps shouldn't crash. That is truly the bottom-line here.

This is so crazy!

I crashed so many apps by typing it, even renaming Photoshop and Illustrator CS6 layer names also crashes the app.

Dont think of it as a bug. Think of it as an alternative way of closing an app

Bring back the I'm a Mac ads.
Tiger and Leopard rocked, Vista sucked.
Now W7 has been rock solid for years and Lion/ML are sick pussies.
Things were better then.
Double down on OSX and computers, Tim.

Lights out.

Well, this explains last night's power outage at the Superdome.
Someone typed "File:///" last night.

In fact... Just trying to edit the post in which I quoted prowlmedia led to safari crashing lol.

What a fascinating bug.

Well, I'm laughing. It's highly embarrassing. And it is indeed no big deal; you wouldn't be able to reproduce the problem if the magic string to enter hadn't been published, and it crashes an application, which is annoying but safe. You can get exactly the same effect by pressing command-option-escape.

Nah, just pause before typing the final / and you'll be fine.

But I added a subroutine that requires that the text be entered within a certain very short time window.

It didn't crash my Macs, but then again, I made it crash a friend's iMac a couple of days ago.

Surely websites can troll Apple users now by having a text box with the crash text already pre-written just to crash our browsers.

typing file:/// causes it to crash?
