    Fireworks CS5.5. crashes when some tool windows are open - MacOS Mavericks




      I have had FW CS 5.5. for ages on my mac and never had a problem. I am using Mavericks.

      Suddenly it started crashing every time I try to open e.g. the Align panel or the Add arrow heads window, no matter if I am editing a newly created PNG or an old one.


      The crash report says


      Crashed Thread:  21


      Exception Type:  EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGBUS)

      Exception Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at 0x000000000000000c

      So it seems to me there is some kind of a problem with Flash player (I noticed that the panels are actually small swfs in the Fireworks folder).

      I tried uninstalling Flash player and the whole CS 5.5. suite from my machine and reinstalling everything but it didn't help.


      Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?
