Lion Probs with Adobe AIR

Have you been seeing lots of messages like this in the Console?

02/09/2011 13:12:17.806 sandboxd: ([237]) WebProcess(237) deny file-read-data /Users/demian/Library/Application Support/Adobe/AIR/ELS/com.adobe.AdobeStory.4875E02D9FB21EE389F73B8D1702B320485DF8CE.1/PrivateEncryptedDatak

Or WebProcess running quite high and continuously in your task list?

It’s a problem with Adobe AIR, the solution is

  • go to /Applications/Utilties folder
  • run the AIR uninstaller
  • re-install AIR from the adobe site

That should solve the prob!

UPDATE: you may also want to repair your Keychain

  • loupe for preview
  • signature for PDFs
  • quicklook for spotlight results
  • stateful Terminal
  • swiping through page history in Safari
  • list of recent files in Expose

Data detectors in Lion

How good are data detectors on Lion?  Really good.  Check out this example of their integration in Apple Mail:

Inbox  13527 messages 3 unread

As in Leopard and Snow Leopard, anything that resembles a date or time is picked up if you hover the cursor over it.  But look at the dialog that appears when I accept the offer to add the event to iCal:


The app has read through the entire mail, noted the 2pm, associated it with my chosen date, and combined the two into a calendar appointment.  Not bad!
