Which version are you running?
Sorry running dreaweaver 5.5
On a macbook pro and also imac. Both machines are brand new and running snow leopard 10.6.8
Sorry for the earlier angry post, it's just been frustrating and googling the issue i came a cross a LOT of people with the same problem and hardly any reply or fix from Adobe.
What exactly happens when you launch DW?
You get past the splash screen?
You work on a document for a couple of minutes then it crashes without warning? Any error messages?
The logo screen works and it loads up. When we open a document and do some simple css fixes or changes we get the spinning wheel and then crash. It seems to happen a lot when we use the CSS pallate. At first it happened within 10 mins but now any document we open as soon as we start playing with the css..spinning wheel!
Thank you for the Crash Report. We have logged a bug for the crash.
On validating the scenario as below, I could not reproduce the crash. Kindly let us know if i have missed anything in the below steps:
1. Updated Dreamweaver CS5.5 to latest patch on Mac OSX 10.6.8
2. Launch Dreamweaver
3. Open a document with CSS classes
4. Edit a CSS class using the CSS palette to change Background color.
5. Save the document
6. Exit Dreamweaver.
Are you facing the crash consistently everytime you launch Dreamweaver?

When I go through those steps the software crashes a couple seconds after I open the css palette. The crashes have been extremely consistent, I've slowly trying to figure out what specific functions cause, but the color palette crash seems to work every time. Could it be conflicts with other running programs, I'll try turning stuff off and see what I can figure out.
The issue is caused due to a depricated API "CGDisplayAddressForPosition" on Mac 10.7.
This has been fixed and the the patch is under internal testing.
We would like to get this patch validated with the community users also. You can contact me at yprasad_at_adobe_dot_com for more details.
