Agree re the ads. I've not even installed the new version yet, and I don't really want to now. Could the devs please confirm that setting the switch to OFF in preferences not only doesn't display ads, but doesn't communicate AT ALL with any of the ad companies? Not only don't I want to see intrusive ads, but I don't want my browsing habits sent to a third party for them to build a profile.

Seriously, you would have been better off asking for donations. Embedding adware just makes people lose any trust they had.

Hm, no response from the devs, and no update. Just looks dodgier and dodgier to me...

Does anybody know where to get a demo of this?

It must be lovely to be able to spend $37.99 on something that might not even do what you need, but in the real world, people need to be able to try software before buying.

The previous version Just Worked when using an iPhone on the local network.

With this update, I have to create /Library/GlimmerBlocker/preferIPv4Stack.txt for the iPhone to work with GlimmerBlocker.

Why is the new default behaviour something that breaks stuff?

And why is there not a UI for changing it, rather than having to mess about creating random files? (Hint: even if you don't want a UI, you can still put it in the preferences plist and tell people to use "defaults write")

Developer site has no mention of RailSide any more. The expired demo says to buy it on the App Store but RailSide isn't on there.

[Copied from the Troubleshooting section, as MacUpdate now hides all Troubleshooting posts on a separate tab where nobody ever sees them]

Works for me under Lion, but with one MAJOR irritation.

Despite choosing Assign to > All Desktops from the Dock menu, it stays on the desktop it was launched on and ONLY that desktop. Clicking on a download link then results in the active desktop being switched to wherever SD has its window. It's a total pain.

Would be nice if it could have an option to start up in mini-mode, too.

(Also, the bandwidth throttle goes up to 1000K/s. I wish I could download that fast — my connection tops out at 180K on a good day! It would be better if we could set our maximum download speed, then have the slider set options between 0 and that speed…)

The recent update has fixed the "all desktops" issue, thankfully.

Download links produce "this site has been suspended". Looks like we used all his bandwidth :(

So why does each Fluid app default to whitelisting doubleclick.net?

That just seems rather dodgy to me...

I can't even download the current version - the server keeps timing out halfway through. That said, with all the trouble others are reporting, I might stick with 3.3.0 for a while :)

Awesome update! It missed a bit, though: when I zapped the VideoDrive trial, Hazel then popped up and reported that Library/Application Support/Growl/Tickets/VideoDrive.growlTicket was still around.

Broken download link — it just goes to http://fakeapp.com.

If the author's withdrawn AquaPath, it's pretty cheap to land on a page advertising something else rather than explaining what's happened.

Oh, wait. After further searching, I found a page for AquaPath. It's now on the Mac App Store. So, at the very least, that "free" above needs to be deleted, since you now have to pay for it.

Personally, I'd love to travel back in time, Terminator-style, and wipe XPath out before it got started. Loathsome syntax.

Don't seem to be compatible with Growl 1.3 as it keeps throwing "Where is GrowlHelperApp" dialogs. Annoyingly, there isn't a "disable Growl" checkbox that you can use to work around this :(

Why on EARTH does this need my admin password as soon as it runs?

No deal! Cmd-Q, Cmd-Delete.

Runs fine on 10.5 but starts and immediately exits on a 10.4.10 box. Is anyone else having this problem?

(Can't upgrade to 10.4.11 as we need to keep a Safari 2 test machine around, unfortunately)

Thanks for the patch - if only big companies would fix things that fast :)

Version 2.1.2 was using over 500Mb (on a 2Gb machine!) less than 10 minutes after launch. That's not good at all - it makes it unusable! (I am running stuff as well as iTunes and CoverSutra :)

The option to use Growl notifications seems to have vanished, too - please can we have this back? I don't want loads of apps that all use their own notifiers: I want everything to work with Growl…

Ah - found it, thanks!

I didn't realise the garbage collector was to blame there: it does seem a bit slow to release at times, though. Hopefully that'll improve in 10.5.3 :)

Looks good, but I have some movies in my Movies folder, and some on another drive. There's a symlink to their folder in ~/Movies, so Front Row can see them, but Connect360 won't follow the symlink and says I only have four movies :( Any chance of Connect360 handling symlinks?

My iPhoto library is also on another disk: Connect360 doesn't find it AT ALL, and doesn't have an option for me to say where it is.

Mind you, the library I'd *really* want to access is the Aperture library. Hopefully this will be supported soon...

I started KeyCastr and got a "Catastropic error" because the service wasn't running. Tried again and it started, but there was no Dock icon or menubar icon - I had to go to the Terminal to kill it.

This isn't some 10.5.2-related problem, maybe?

Hopefully once I've got to an icon, I'll be able to set a preference to only show keystrokes with a modifier key pressed.

It also seemed to be very difficult to move the window - it kept trying to jump back. The secret seems to be to keep pressing keys so the window doesn't try to close mid-drag...

It's great - but under Leopard, apart from occasional crashes, it breaks the ability to preview fonts in CoverFlow and Quick Look. All you see is an icon saying "Font Explorer X Font", and no preview.

Even telling Finder to open all font files with Font Book doesn't fix this. Does anybody know how to restore this system functionality without removing FontExplorer X?

Ah, hang on - it seems a Finder search for "kind:font" returns all these "FontExplorer X font" files - unless you restrict it to your FontExplorer X library, in which case it returns the correct font files and preview work OK. Very odd that it shouldn't return those AS WELL AS the "FontExplorer X font" files, but that seems to be Spotlight's fault :)

Installed the demo on Leopard - now I can't use CTRL+number to switch between Spaces, even when Safari is not the focused app. It seems Saft is somehow eating this keystroke globally.

The "jump to bookmark bar item" feature is useful, but I switch between spaces a LOT, and don't want to use a different key shortcut for that. Please can we have an option to have Saft use a different shortcut, and to only have it absorb that shortcut when Safari has focus?

Also I can no longer drag tabs between windows, like I could before installing Saft. I know it provided draggable tabs in Safari 2, but could it be made to not interfere with Safari 3's tab-dragging code?

Actually, a reboot fixed the problem with CTRL-number not switching between spaces, but I'd still like to be able to use the shortcuts in Safari - say with CTRL-OPT-number?
