    hi.
    in my mac osx 10.6.7 some apps do not start (firefox, emacs, texshop, etc.). they just bump over the dock for a while and then stop without showing anything.
    any idea? is it a permissions issue?

    We would need more information, but the first thing to try is repairing permissions, and verifying the drive integrity, then restarting the computer. If it still occurs it may be a system or hard drive issue.

    I did repair permissions this morning using a Mac OS disk. the problem still persists.

    Apps not working? Better catch 'em!

    ...wait I think that's a refridgerator joke.

    I'll come back with something later.
