rdar://13128709: OSX apps (TextEdit)

open TextEdit. type “File:///”. The capital ‘F’ is important. On the third /, it crashes.

If you send an iMessage with File:/// it will crash the recipients Messages app, and they can not relaunch the app unless they go to Library and delete the history.

  1. Also seems to crash Safari (URL bar), Spotlight (search field), Calendar (new event). Hilarious!

  2. OS10.6.8 – no crash in Textedit nor Safari – rekkon it must be only the newer stuff. I’ll try it at work tomorrow on my 10.7 machine,
