Odds & Ends: Netscape 6.1p1 bookmark crash bug; Rewind and Limewire conflict; 17" Flat-panel software install

Netscape 6.1p1 crash when moving bookmarks William Leifer found that attempting to move a new or imported bookmark into a bookmark folder results in freeze and application crash with type 2 error, occasionally a type 1 error, at least on his machine.

Rewind 1.2 and Limewire 1.4 conflict Rafael Rivera writes: "I have a reproducible Finder crash on my machine (Power Mac G4 DP 533, 384MB, Mac OS 9.1) caused by a conflict between Rewind v1.2 and Limewire v1.4b. If the Rewind extension is loaded, regardless of whether the program is running, then Limewire will consistently crash the Finder as soon as it completes a download and attempts to transfer the downloaded file to the user-selected download folder. Uninstalling Rewind is the interim solution if one wishes to use Limewire."

17" Flat-panel LCD monitor software install: a follow-up On the heels of yesterday's coverage of a software installer glitch on older Macs, Arch Getty found that extracting the software for the 17" LCD monitor with TomeViewer and installing it allows full function of the monitor. He writes: "TomeViewer reveals a new version of Apple Monitor Plugins (2.1), ColorSync Extension, Default Calibrator, and new full suites of ATI, NVIDIA, OpenGL extensions."
