Issue with LockDown Browser, Firefox for Mac
If you are a Mac user and your versions of Respondus LockDown Browser and Firefox are crashing, the cause may be a recent update to Java 6 (update 29) for Mac OS X. At this time, you cannot use the LockDown Browser on a Mac computer that has Java 6 (update 29) – you will need to use another computer or update your version of Java. For Firefox users, please use another browser, such as Safari. We also recommend not installing Java 6 (update 29), if prompted as part of the Apple software update.
