I recently helped someone who was having very odd problems with CSS rendering in Firefox and Dreamweaver, and nothing worked (reinstalling apps, disabling extensions, safe boot, etc.) until we created a new user account.

What finally got things working back in the primary user account was to do a deep cache cleaning of all system, user, and application caches and rebooting (I used Cocktail, though I'm sure others will use other similar maintenance utilities; see this Macworld overview of maintenance tasks and utilties). So doing this kind of cleaning might be worth a try if you haven't done so yet.

If I were a betting man, my money would be on an obscure corrupt Rosetta cache file (especially if Accordance is the only non Intel-native app you're running)!


Thanks for this tip as well. I had the exact same thought this afternoon, so as soon as I got home I ran Onyx and all its options....unfortunately, did not change anything! I'd hate to have to run Accordance off another user account! I have not had any trouble with old MS office which is still non-Intel (outside the normal MS office problems!). I have not tried a safe boot yet, perhaps I'll give that a go.

All,

I think I have solved it. Not that I would recommend the solution, however. After duplicating my user > preference file (just in case!), I trashed the entire file and started accordance - getting the same result as logging in as a new user. Therefore, one .pref file at a time, I rebuilt the folder - checking to see how it impacted accordance. Although I cannot tell which pref it was, i was able to get accordance to work properly. Now I just have to go back and customize many of my other apps again! It is nice to have accordance back!
