Is anyone else experiencing frequent crashes of NetNewsWire? From the crash reporter stuff, it appears to do with a Flash Player Plugin thing. On certain items in my list, when it attempts to render them the app crashes. It used to be fairly infrequent, now it’s about once a day. Whether that has to do with a situation getting worse on my machine or more people using the thing that makes it crash on their posts, I cannot say. The only recourse I have is to either mark the items as read without displaying them, or zipping past them really quick with the arrow keys such that they get marked read but not rendered. It’s highly annoying, and I get pissed off when I navigate to a new item, and get that sluggishness and swirling beachball because I know what is coming next. I hope those Crash Reporter missives to Apple eventually end up at Ranchero, because I by myself have submitted dozens of them.
Update: Brent Simmons himself left a comment pointing to his own post which explains both the problem and the workaround.
