FIRESTORM CRASHES WHEN UPLOADING TEXTURES & MESH--MAC ONLY

I don't know if anyone else has had this problem with the newest version of the Firestorm Beta Viewer, but since yesterday, every time I tried to upload a texture or mesh to SL I crashed. I spent hours trying to uninstall, reinstall different versions of the viewer and nothing helped.  I searched and found nothing on the FS Wiki...it all looked like gobblity gook when results were received.  I am running a Mac with Yosemite and was attempting to use the Phoenix mode choice for my viewer.  So with little self help, I filed a JIRA, which was turned into a support ticket.  The answered I received is a workaround and is a bit surprising this has not fixed yet since it is an older issue.   

It seems Firestorm and/or LL can't accommodate the different views we Mac Users have in viewing files and it effect uploading a texture or mesh item if you use anything but List or Column View, depending on your OS version.  But, thankfully, Firestorm offers the following solution.   

This information was directly copied from the FS Wiki, from the solution I received.  Hopefully, posting this will cause less frustration to other Mac Users out there having this issue. 

 

Mac: Crash on Upload

If you find that you are crashing when uploading images, or doing anything that opens a file picker, then read on.
When you open a Finder window from SL, if you are in either Icon mode or Coverflow, and switch to either List or Columns mode the viewer will still crash. You need to do the following to work around this:

OS Versions up to (but not including) Yosemite

  • Log into the viewer
  • Open Build→Upload→Image
  • When Finder opens, change the view mode to List
  • Cancel the Finder
  • Exit the SL Viewer
  • Relaunch
You should now be able to upload - and perform operations with the file picker in general - without crashing. You can even switch between List and Columns. But, you can never switch to the Icon or Coverflow.

Yosemite

  • Login
  • Open Inventory
  • Build → Upload →Image
  • Switch view mode to either List or Columns
  • Cancel the Finder window
  • Exit the viewer
  • Relaunch the viewer
