Version 1.6.4 has 2 bugs, one being very serious.

Serious Bug: This only occurs when synchronizing my iTunes Library folder. Synchronization takes place, but then the dialog box changes to "Fixing Modification Dates..." and the program hangs. I've waited up to 15 minutes and this never changes. CPU usage is at a minimum. In order to get out of it I have to "Force Quit" the program. I saw something similar in version 1.6.3, but the dialog was "Fixing Permissions...". Same thing. Had to Force Quit the program. This is under OS 10.6.8 and only happens with the iTunes library folder.

Bug 2: Version 1.6.4 What's New: "Fixes a problem where if you were to perform a synchronization and nothing would need to be replaced, the last synchronization date would not be updated." This was not fixed.

The System Requirements for this version (2.3.7) are wrong. It will not install on Snow Leopard (10.6.8).

When you try to run the package it complains that it will not install on this system and directs you to go to Garmin's site and download a version for Snow Leopard. The latest is 2.1.8.

The download link on MU as well as the homepage of Mozilla, downloads a .dmg file that is named 23.0.1.

Once you open the .dmg file and do a "Get Info" on the Firefox app you will find that is is NOT 23.0.1. It is instead 23.0 which was last updated on 7/30/13.

To get the correct dmg file, go to the Mozilla homepage, click on "Support" (Bottom of page), then Firefox (WebBrowser for Mac...), then "Firefox Release Notes", then "Firefox Notes Desktop". On the right of the page, you will see "Try Firefox". Click on the Download link. On he next page you will see "Firefox Free download". Click on that.

It will start downloading the correct 23.0.1.dmg file.

Open the file, select the Firefox app and do a "Get Info" on it. Check the version number and you will see that it is indeed 23.0.1.

Hopefully MU and Mozilla will get their links fixed.

Beware of version 3.2.

Under OS 10.6.8 the program crashes after doing any operation.

I"ve opened a Bug Report Ticket with the developer and sent them a Crash Report.

Stay with version 3.1 until they get this fixed.

From the crash report I sent them, they found the bug and fixed it. The new release is 3.2.1

Great Support!

If you purchased version 2.5, DON'T upgrade to 2.5.1!

it is broken.

I run Snow Leopard (latest version). After I upgraded to 2.5.1 and tried displaying my other Mac on my network, this version launched the app and put the icon in my dock, but never displayed my other Mac's desktop. Even after a reboot, same thing.

I had to downgrade to 2.5 (excellent app) to get Screen Sharing working again using this app.

4.0.5 broke the "two finger swipe" function using the MagicMouse. That's the feature to be able to go back or forward between web pages. Now I have to use the forward or back buttons in the toolbar. Bummer.

To "Dont-Spam-Me": Are you using the Leopard version or Snow Leopard? I'm using Snow Leopard. I did check my mouse prefs and they are fine. I even toggled the two finger swipe action so that the prefs were saved again.

I now have it fixed. Thanks "Don't-Spam-Me". When you gave the last reply I figured it was something on my system. After running Onyx (rebuild the Launch Services database, rebuilding the DYLD shared cache, clearing out all other caches, etc) and then doing a SafeBoot, the two finger swipe is now acting as it should.

Thanks again.
