Apple today released a new OS X build to AppleSeed (build 12D65) and the obscure, but nasty ‘File :///’ bug is no longer present, sources say.

So, no more instant application crashes.

And, yes, we know there’s an extra space in there, but we couldn’t type the real thing without crashing Safari!

It’s good to see Apple so quickly working on a fix for this weird little bug.

[Thanks to MacDailyNews readers too numerous to mention individually for the heads up.]
