Crash Any App on Your Mac by Typing ‘File:///’
Posted on February 2, 2013 by eli courey
There’s a strange bug recently discovered in Mac OS X that will crash any app when you type the following into a text field: File:///
We’ve tested this on many apps including TextEdit, Safari, Chrome, Cyberduck, Tweetbot and more. An app will only crash when typed with a capital F, not a lowercase one. The bug affects all Macs running Mountain Lion, but not any previous versions of the OS.
There has been a bug report filed with Apple, but there is no information on when a fix will be released.
