Important - for Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 users

Postby Only A Hobo » Tue Aug 12, 2014 5:59 am

Important note:

If you are a Mac Snow Leopard OS X 10.6.8 user with Frostwire 5.7.4 DO NOT attempt to update. The later 5.7.5 etc. will only work on Lion OS X 10.7 or later.

Older versions may be obtained at http://main1.frostwire.com/frostwire/

see http://main1.frostwire.com/frostwire/5.7.4/ for the mac version use the one marked dmg

I don't know if this is a private or forum message. It's a bit confusing.

However, here's the problem.

My Frostwire used to work perfectly. Then I changed to an upgraded version.
I've now returned to an older version but the fault remains.

I do a search and I'm told that Frostwire is 'currently connecting to the network'.....but it never does connect
and nothing is searched for, nothing appears and so I can't download anything.

This didn't use to happen.
Have I changed settings somehow?

Help...

Frostwire will not open for me at all. I try to open frostwire and a box pops up that says frostwire quit unexpectedly. And only gives me the option to send a report or try and reopen. If I click on the reopen it just pops up with the same box and options. I have copied the details below.
