Address Book URL sync bug is not fixed in Mac OS X 10.4.2
by Ernest E. Rothman
- Create a bookmark folder in Safari's Bookmarks Bar, and copy your Address Book bookmarks into this new folder. You can subsequently sync your Safari Bookmarks to make them available across all of your Macs.
- Cut and paste back and forth between the URL field and the Notes field in Address Book. (This workaround seems to be suggested by Apple in Technical Document 301230.)
- Copy your Address Book folder from ~/Library/Application Support, where the ~ symbol stands for your home directory, onto a tiny USB flash drive and carry it around with you. This really defeats the purpose of .Mac syncing, though.
I hope Apple will fix this in the next update to its otherwise awesome operating system, Tiger.
If anyone has a better workaround or could shed more light on this problem, please post your thoughts.
The bug in System Profiler still exists too
Another annoying bug that persists is that when you select any item under Software and try and sort via "Last Modified" it renders the ability to view any log, application, extensions, etc useless. If you close and re-open Profiler you can view all information under Software until trying to select "Last Modified" column.
