    Anyone else run into this where they run Xslimmer on the entire drive (no excluded directories) and have Flash break. Reinstalling Flash does not work. I remember this happened in Snow Leopard back in the early days and they updated the program so it wouldn't happen.. well, it's happening again.

    You basically have to do a full OS reinstall to fix it. There is no other solution that I can find/figure out so far. Also, thanks to Apple's great "internet recovery system" it'll take four hours to download.

    Anyone know of an alternative fix?

    edit: Only seems to have broken it in Safari, Chrome works fine. There does not appear to be a way to only reinstall Safari.

    I have not run this app I have it, but I know now. Thanks for the heads up.

    Tried reinstalling Safari from the package in the GM build, did not resolve. Did a reinstall and was fixed. Still would be nice to find an alternative solution.
