OS X V10.7 Lion :: Finder Crash After Downloading Dropbox

Feb 28, 2012

 I downloaded Dropbox and the Finder has crashed by blinking with the "restore windows"-window. Then I created another administrator account and from here deleted Dropbox. Then restarted and logged in to my normal account. Now Finder wasn't blinking like before but there is nothing viewable on the Desktop and when I click on Finder in the Dock several times it comes up with a window for a splitsecond then closes the window again. Then I can press it several times again and it comes up for a splitsecond and then closes again. When hitting the command-option-esc, the icon blinks here. I've actually also tried the killall Finder in terminal, but even this doesn't work.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Option-close-all-windows Causes Finder Crash In It

Jun 3, 2012

Ever since I installed Lion last year on another iMac, and now on my current iMac, whenever I hold down option and click the red close button on a Finder window to close all open windows, the Finder crashes. It doesn't happen every single time, but enough to really make me angry.

Intel Mac :: Why Does Finder Crash When Try And Open A Folder

Apr 7, 2012

Here's an interesting one for all you intelegent people out there.  

I have a 2011 iMac running Lion. I have a USB harddrive connected which stores digial versions of all my DVDs so that I can stream them to my AppleTV. Has no issues with it before now. A moment ago my Mac crashed and had to be restarted by holding down the button at the back (first time ever!!). When i turned the thing back on, the drive didn't mount so I went into disk utility and repaired the drive which resulted in it mounting.  

Here lies the problem, I can access files on my drive in every other folder but the Movies on. See the below video. [URL]

have I lost my 660gb+ collection of movies?

MacBook :: IBook G4 Finder Crash Loop

May 7, 2012

I have got an old iBook G4 from a friend how can't fix this problem, and unfortunatly I can't either.

I know this problem is posted here milions of times but I tried everything possible, I just can't fix it.

I don't have an Mac DVD so I can't boot from DVD to repair/reinstall. 

I have tried:Booting in safe mode - same problem, it's impossible to use the computerBooting in a single user mode - I can use the command line only, but when I but it's still the same problemClearing NVRAM 

I can't do anything so I don't know what's installed. I have made a video to describe excatly what's happening - but in short the iBook boots fine, Finder lauches and crashes imidieatly - you can't do anything, it's just stuck in a loop.

Here's the video (skip to 0:55 for the problem): [URL]

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Continually Duplicating EMLX Files In User Mailboxes

Feb 22, 2012

I was trying to discover what was eating up all my disc space on my 11 inch MBA. After doing some research I discovered over 30GB was being eaten up by a particular type of file in "/users/username/library/mail/V2/mailboxes/recovered messages/89AF938B-6B1D-44AC-9E37-158CF278B361/DATA/3/messages". I found 288 ".emlx" files, all duplicates of one another, each is 112MB big. And they continually copy themselves.

Looking at the dates, the first file in the folder was created 12/02/2012 and the most recent file in the folder was created roughly 15 minutes ago on todays date of 23/02/2012. In fact while inspecting the folder, I saw before my eyes them being duplicated. Because I had one of the files highlighted, then began to use safari for a few minutes, and when I came back, there were more of the things underneath the one which I had highlighted!

The files are email files, and they are all copies of a particular email I sent using iPhoto. I sent an album of about 25 or so photos through the iPhoto sharing feature.So is iPhoto or Mail backing up this email over and over again for some reason? They seem to copy themselves only when both iPhoto and Mail applications are open at the same time. I know this because I have experimented with it and can see more and more being created.

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Crash When Opening Any Folder On Desktop

Sep 11, 2014

Finder crashes when using any option from the Go menu (or key combo) except Airdrop.

Once Finder window is open on Airdrop any navigation to home folder or any other folder using side bar causes Finder to crash.

Using Go To Folder causes crash, even on hidden folder like /var

Finder is OK when opening files on desktop

All other apps can browse file system and open/save OK

Google Drive is not present on system (this used to be an issue a long time a go that caused similar symptoms in other threads)

Drop Box is installed. But issue occurs even when dropbox is not running

Using spotlight to open applications still works normally.

Clicking the Finder icon in the Dock results in a non-functional blank window entitled "Window", all tool buttons are disabled.

Repeatedly opening the same folder over and over results in the message "The last time you open Finder, it unexpectedly quite while reopening windows. Do you want to try to reopen its windows again? If you choose not to reopen windows, you may have to open and position the windows yourself" Two options "Don't Reopen" and "Reopen". Both buttons have no effect except to dismiss the dialog.

Steps Taken to fix:

Booted into recovery mode and performed repair disk and Permissions - Finder Still Crashes

Removed finder preference files using terminal~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sidebarlists.plist 

Recent changes to system:iTunes 11.4 Installed with normal Software Update. 

Possible Cause of Problem

Found app in iTunes that has File Sharing enabled and has a shared folder. Curious as to what was in the folder i dragged it to my desktop and double clicked. Im not sure if iTunes would have had enough time to copy the contents of the folder before i tried to open the folder. Finder crashed. This was the first time it happened.

iPhone app in iTunes that I picked in was "Ubersense".

ITunes :: Dock & Finder Crash/relaunch When Any Song Is Played?

Jun 17, 2012

I have reinstalled my system (via Lion's system restore), reinstalled iTunes, including reseting the library and reimporting media. Same thing. Everything I hit play, or another songs plays at the end of another, the dock & finder relaunches. Everything else is flawless. I have another OS on another drive, for music, which shares the library and it's fine. 10.7.4 OS's & 10.6.3 iTunes.

Applications :: Mail Crash With Large Attachment - Finder Super Slow

Apr 22, 2007

I'm happily using my new 24" iMac, but I've run across a little problem this evening. I was trying to send a 225mb file as a mail attachment through my Gmail account using Mail. When I go to send the file, Mail crashes and disappears. This happened a couple times, so I logged directly into Gmail and sent the file through the web browser. Now the system is hung up 'sending' in the Gmail browser, and Finder has become very sluggish (slow response to clicks, errors printing, etc). Can the iMac and/or Mail handle sending files of this size?

OS X Mavericks :: External Hard Drive Won't Transfer Files To Mac HD And Causes Finder To Crash

Dec 6, 2014

My external Hard Drive (Western Digital 2TB hard drive in a ICYBOX 2-bay USB 2.0 HD Dock) won't transfer files to the Mac HD. The transfer box comes up but stays at the 'estimating time' stage and remains like that. No matter how big the file/group of files are (biggest I've tried was only 500-odd MB) it won't transfer and stays at the 'estimating time' stage. When I try and stop the transfer, the transfer box remains at the 'stopping' stage until I restart the iMac. I can access other programs during this 'stopping' stage, as long as it doesn't involve the External HD. 

When I attempt to open files from the External HD in Photoshop CS4, both Photoshop and Finder stop responding and have I have to 'Force Quit'. However, upon force quitting finder, I loose all icons on the desktop until I restart the Mac via holding down the 'Power' button on the back. 

Ive already done a couple things. 

- I excluded the Ext HD on the Spotlight>Privacy tab. 
- I verified the Ext HD via System Utilities. Some errors came up but the Repair was successful and subsequent Verifications have returned as 'OK'. 
- I tried the Mac Diagnostic tool as suggested by Apple, but when I press the 'D' key on start up nothing happens. 

The annoying thing is that this problem came out of the blue, the Ext HD was working fine 3 days ago. 

My system: 
iMac 21.5inch, mid 2010
3.6GHz Intel Core i5
8GB 1333 MHz DDR3
OS X 10.9.5 (13F34) 

The Ext HD: 
Western Digital 2TB
Mac OS Extended (Journalised)
1.91TB available on the HD
Shares a 2 Bay ICYBOX dock with another 2TB WD HD
Connected to the iMac via USB 2.0 to a 4-port USB 2.0 hub

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Click Finder Icon On Dock ≠ New Finder Window?

May 22, 2012

Wasn't this an option previous to 10.7.4? It doesn't work now.When clicking the Finder icon in the Dock, a new Finder window would open? I know about Finder prefs - General - Always open folders in new window but this isn't what I mean.I'd have a Finder window open then want to copy/move something so I clicked on the Finder icon in the dock to get a new window.Every time I clicked the Dock icon, I'd get a new Finder window.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine Seems To Crash MacBook

Feb 23, 2012

I have a MacBook and back it all up on a 1tb partitioned external hdd via my airport extreme over my network. This has been working fine for the past 2 months on hourly backups but two days ago when the backup started it would search for the hdd, not actually start the backup and freeze. The screen would darken and a message across the screen pops up saying I need to restart my MacBook. After a hard restart I have to turn off time machine to ensure it doesn't happen again. It would if I didn't turn time machine off. Am I sceptical that this timing is linked to me attempting to update to 10.7.3 at the same time and for some reason it didn't complete the download and install the update. I hear this update is flawed and the timing was the same as when this problem first happened.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Disable Application Restore After A Crash?

Mar 17, 2012

Restarting my mac after a crash in Lion (of which there are many) takes an extemely long time. This is most likely due to restoring all applications/docs/etc after a crash to the state just prior to crashing- a new feature in Lion.  Is there any way to disable this feature?

I have got two amazing mac's at home. a 2010 8core mac pro and a 2011 17"macbook pro. both running 10.7.4 and with Hamachi installed. They work great, but occasionally on boot they have a fatal "you need to shut down..." error. corresponding to "current thread: Hamachid". i had this a few times and decided that i was done with hamachi and i have deleted it on both machines. About two weeks later i again got a fatal on startup. corresponding to drums.Hamachid!!!so i went in to library-application support and found that Logmein still had a folder with 10 files. i again deleted that folder on both macs (today).

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Get Automatic Login After Crash And Reinstalling

Jun 22, 2012

My late 2008 MacBook (aluminum) crashed last month. I have fixed many of the items that quit working except: I can no longer automatically log in. When I go to Preferences and then to Users & Groups (Login Options) the "Click the lock to make changes" always goes to page which says "System Preferences quit unexpectedly." On that page it says Exception Type: EXE_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) and Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000000000000. Is there a solution that does not require me to wipe the computer and reinstall from scratch?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Coreaudiod Crash When Calling Through Skype?

Jun 25, 2012

When I make a call through Skype, after a few seconds I have a coreaudiod crash and skype stop responding. I am using Lion 10.7.4 and last version of Skype. All my softwares are up2date. I already re-install Lion ... 

Could be linked to another issue I already logged about applications crashing [URL]Since Coreaudiod crashed, Safari is going very slow and crashed also 3 times in 10 minutes. I suppose because coreaudio is not there and should?  

Here is the crash report :

OS X V10.7 Lion :: IMac A1225 Crash Running AHT Then Goes Into A Boot Loop

May 1, 2012

I have an iMac A1225 EMC2211 that is exhibiting some weird behaviour. After about 5 minutes of using it (cold boot) it will either have a kernel panic, freeze and go into a blue (bondi blue I think) screen, or shut down. I ran an extended AHT on it and after 10 minutes it shuts down (black screen) then goes into a boot loop (screen stays black and system chimes once every 2 seconds). If the system is warm it will not boot (goes to blank grey screen). The consol reports something with the NVRAM (havent had the ability to post the log yet).

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Website Crashes On Safari And Total Crash On Other Browsers

May 17, 2012

I have a macbook pro and I have the OS X lion installed with all the latest updates to Safari etc. Lately my browsers have been acting up.  

While I can access a lot of websites on my Safari there are other sites which do not load and I get the spinning beach ball before Safari crashes. My Safari also seems to take longer to load.   

I have the latest Firefox 12 installed. When that starts up on the home page it crashes straight away after the obligatory spinning beach ball. I tried to trouble shoot Firefox but it wouldn't even open in safe mode before it crashed.  

I also have Opera which doesn't even start up. So I uninstalled and upgraded to Opera Next. It doesn't even start up!   

I have checked for plug in issues. I have up to date adobe flash player and java - unless there is some issue there. I also checked my DNS and it seemed clean of trojans. But I could or may have overlooked something.  

I did use 'onyx' to clean my files but the trouble began before I used it. So now I am at a loss to understand why I am having problems with my browsers.  

I'm not very technical but I have done my best to follow various threads around here to dismiss obvious causes.

OS X :: Errors In Filesystem Continually Appearing?

Sep 16, 2010

I recently bought a hard disk drive for my macbook - specifically an internal, 500GB disk with 32 MB cach�. I installed OSX without any problems, but lately I've noticed some programs start doing funky things (Finder getting stuck frequently for no reason, once even the settings panel got stuck, svn weird behaviour complaining a file is both non-existant, locked and not versioned, etc.). Just out of curiosity I tried checking the disk with the disk utility and it found filesystem errors.

I heard some rumours a few years ago that disks with big cach�s required a bit more time before shutdown to committ everything to actual disk.

These errors and funky behaviour *seem* to appear when I reboot so I'm suspecting the rumours might be true. What do you think? Anyone out there with a big cach� HDD? should I try exchanging it for one with a smaller cach� or is there any setting I can access for this case? Or maybe is it simply defective?

OS X :: Applications Continually Crashing / Is It Because Of Compatibility

Oct 3, 2009

i've had my macbook for about a year but ever since the most recent osx combined update, applications on my macbook crash continually. Safari maybe once every 5 minutes, Firefox less so. The more demanding the program, the more frequent the crashes become. Mac os itself actually crashes fairly often too.

I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.8. I upgraded both my ram and hard drive personally when I got my laptop, but i've never had problems before the update and both sets of hardware were compatible. (i forget the technical spec).
