    Hi folks.
    Recently, my 14" iBook running tiger 10.4.11 has been acting really strange.
    First, my bookmarks toolbar disappeared from firefox. Tried reinstalling, but now firefox crashes while launching, every time. I have deleted all related files, reinstalling different versions, same result. :confused:
    Trying to learn to live without firefox, I now find my other apps crashing randomly and simultaneously. I will have 5,6,7 apps crashing in one go, each popping up with a message saying that the crash won't affect other apps:rolleyes: Sometimes half the open apps crash, and the other half follows 3 minutes later:confused::confused::confused:

    I've repaired permissions and zapped pram.
    I did a complete formatting and reinstalling OSX three months ago, because of other quirks, nothing like this.

    Any help greatly appreciated

    Try booting from the instal disk. I'd run Disk Utility and repair the hard drive. If that doesn't solve it I'd reinstall the OS.
