    Very cool Gary!
    Never noticed that "Report a bug" feature in Safari. That could have been such a time saver.

    The web page would not open, it said that there were bugs. It also said WebKit error Domain:101. Hope you can help. Love my mac for 3 months now!!!

    I don't see how you're supposed to provide any detail when it's unclear what happened and the crash is the only thing you know occurred.
    My Firefox Browser always crashes when I play this game on Yahoo called Text Twist.
    All of a sudden, the screen will freeze, and the Browser crashes. They tell me to report it, but I don't know what to say other than what I've already observed.

      Your observations are exactly what is needed. Firefox has a built-in error reporting mechanism that it looks like you have triggered. It will send diagnostic into to the Firefox team. Reporting that A. You are at X page on Yahoo, B. Playing a Flash game called TextTwist and C. That is "always" happens is a great amount of detail.

    What if you aren't a developer? I've got a legitimate bug report - Assertion Errors in Mail 4.4 and I want to post the Console message to whoever reads this stuff - and find out how serious it is.
    Where do I go as a USER not a Developer to post this?
