    Photoshop Crash with mx:HTML - KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE (WebKitGetAPI)

    brianreavis Level 1

      I've built a Photoshop Extension that uses the mx:HTML control (Webkit). For some users (including myself), Photoshop will crash as the control is initializing. Clearing the Photoshop preferences causes the issue to go away and start successfully (at least for awhile).


      rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CS6 Settings/


      Here are some crash dumps from two different people:

      Crashdump #1: https://gist.github.com/brianreavis/ae209b1bad260e94127b

      Crashdump #2: https://gist.github.com/brianreavis/642d17ff07b1248b10a1


      For what it's worth, the only people this has happened to so far are on OSX.

      It's not an easily reproducible bug.
