Solve an apparent 'stuck Safari' crash without losing work

Exactly. Programs which modify running applications or the system are more trouble than they're worth. Apple bins all crash reports which include haxies and BareBones has been similarly scathing of them. Classic Menu also brings back the Apple menu but without a nasty hack.

Solve an apparent 'stuck Safari' crash without losing work

I got a little wordy that night; manic high combined with multiple bug troubleshooting and scripting around iPhone deficiencies left me buzzing on the keys for too long.

Poor Rob had to not only read my ramble, but edit it into something you guys would actually read.

He cut out the parts where I said, "I dutifully submit my Apple Bug Reports, but I read somewhere that there bug tracking system automatically ignores any report when haxies are detected in the System Config. Doesn't surprise me, if true.

"It will be a long time before I can wean myself off haxies; especially FruitMenu and Windowshade. But I hope this helps someone else; just toggle various haxie features, and you don't have to force-quit, quit, or even log out anymore to resolve. God Bless *NIX. And long live the haxie; their usefulness outweighs their occasional gnatiness."

And please don't forget that I opened with, "Yes, I know, if you use haxies you get what you deserve."

I've looked at the link above many times over the past whatever period, and it simply doesn't replace all the haxies I'm using; nor does it even address the stated benefits in this post for specific CM functions. Even if it did the one, once you haxie in for a penny to get the others, you my as well haxie in a pound and enjoy what you can.

So, as stated, we who use them get what we deserve. And we try to support ourselves by passing along tips to deal with certain problems until the developers catch up.
