Firefox 10's crash rebooted OS X

I would love to help. Allow me to describe what happened. I understand there is innumerable variables and do not know which ones are important to developers.

It began after shutting down a virtual machine running Tails 0.10.1 when a message popped up saying my computer must restart. This message showed for a few seconds before my computer instantly shut off and began reboot.

I then had a problem connecting to Tor's network (apparently due to lack of UPnP device). I disabled/reenabled my router's UPnP and Vidalia connected to Tor. When Vidalia opened Firefox, my computer got stuck and rebooted again.

These events happen rather quickly, but I believe that is how it happened. If there is any way I can help, just email von@…! I am ever grateful for Tor's team! You guys are great.'

I will mention one other thing. Firefox said it crashed when Vidalia reopened it. Also, when trying to open firefox from the application located at /contents/MacOS/Firefox after Vidalia is connected to Tor, nothing happens. Please fix this. If I quit Firefox, there should be a way of restarting it without having to shut down my relay!

Hrm, that sounds like something worse than faulty user-space software should be able to inflict. One guess is that the virtualization software you are using messed something up when shutting down the tails vm. I'm afraid we can't really help you without exact error messages and debug info from osx, and even then it might be a long shot :/
