    I've found out that sometimes an app crashes and if i do it all over again in the same steps it will crash ; again.

    i have found out that moving an icon or changing anything in the computer from one side to another or doing something slightly different than the first timewill solve the problem and the app will not crash

    I know, this is the weirdest thing , but it works in my Mac:confused: :D

    You should try Macromedia Flash, it's full of weird things like this! :D

    I've had the same problems, it always seems that patience is the key. Closing the program usually works. A last resort is to reboot. The Mac is very resilient. Eudora was one that caused me alot of trouble, but ended up having to remove the progam and use Entourage. That one really frustrated me so I contacted Apple! The others are IE & Word!

    I totally agree. I think the only programs that ever crash on my tibook are part of the Microsoft Office suite or are beta apps.

    Well, Finder has been pretty crashy for me lately. I have deleted the pref for finder in my library and restarted. Hopefully now it'll work right.
