A fix for Finder crashing when selecting Applications folder
Authored by: mjones1040 on Apr 30, '03 12:20:47PM

This has happened to me before. My problem did not have to do
with fonts. The problem was with permissions. Unfortunately I
can't remember the exact details, but I know that I changed
some permissions on a few folders/files and the problem went
away. I have StreamRipper installed and I don't think that it
has given me any trouble. Sorry for the cryptic comment, but
you might look at the permissions of some of your apps and
make sure they are correct. I have found permissions for
shareware that I manually install into my applications folder to
be the main problem. In the future, I think I will keep a log of
problems like this so that I can pass along more details next
