OmniWeb won't stay on dock


Colonel Panic
Running OSX Final - Several times I have put the new Omniweb icon onto my dock - and it just won't stay put. I reboot, and it's gone!! Anyone else experience this?

nope. do other icons stay on the dock? are you adding it via the popup menu or by dragging?


Colonel Panic
Just by dragging.

I should mention that I have crashed (yes, crashed) the system twice today already. Once by clicking "Calibrate" in the Displays settings panel (color tab), and another time by choosing "Get Mac OS X Software..." from the Apple menu.

In both scenarios, I tried Opt-Cmd-Esc and force-quitting, and in the first case it only locked up tighter, and in the 2nd, the 3-key combo had no effect at all. I ended up with a 'spinning disc' cursor, unable to do anything.

Crash proof my butt....


firstly, open the application from the Application/OmniWeb directory. It will then appear in the Dock.

then, right-click (or control-click) the icon to get the pop-up menu. choose Add to Dock (or whatever it's called). it should stay in the dock from then on.

btw: you did remove it from the Disc Copy app, right?

Also, when you think you've locked up try clicking on other X things. items in the dock, other windows, etc. if they come up then you haven't actually crashed anything other than the app that you were in.

use the Apple Menu/Force Quit... feature. it should behave the same as the 3-fingered salute, but at least you know that you are actually alive and well.

Force Quit now brings up a windows-like app listing where you can choose which app to kill.
