Crash and burn Mac style

Recovered from the Wayback Machine.

Unfortunately, I may have to kill my little adventure in Web 1.0, as I installed a Firefox extension yesterday and it has so screwed my system up, even after uninstalling, that I’m having to run disc replair and cache clearing tools. If these don’t work, I’ll have to re-install the operating system.

Which goes to show that Firefox extensions are not as sandboxed as one would think. Hopefully clearing the cache and repairing permissions will be all that’s needed. Right now, I can’t load Photoshop, and can barely load Firefox. I’m writing this on my Windows machine, which does not have most of the software I use.



Running Yasu to clear my system and user cache and to repair permissions, followed by running fsck a couple of times seems to have worked.
