This is a discussion on why no macos programming section? within the A Brief History of Cprogramming.com forums, part of the Community Boards category; I used to have like 30-40. Plus opening onening many tabs at once will block the browser entirely until those ...

    It may related to extensions, but then again, if I could just run another instance, those problems would be solved!

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    I think a preferable solution, in lieu of allowing multiple instances of Firefox, is to fix all the damn bugs in Firefox so it works how it's supposed to.

    (Hey, I use Firefox, that's why I complain.)

    Good luck with that. The extensions are proving pretty problematic. And I don't know if they're going to address it anytime soon.

    I don't use FireFox.

    I have it, but I don't use it because its controls look strange on Mac. And I don't use it on
    Windows because of some other reasons I'm sure everybody here would like to hear but I
    don't feel like hijacking this thread about Mac programming.

    Anyway, all relevant Mac programming talk is going on at Apple sponsored official mailing lists.
    I hate mailing lists, but that is almost all Mac folks have right now.

    A year ago I asked the same question about the Mac forum at c-board without any success.
    (You can't find that thread because it got erased at one of those site crashes). On the other
    hand, half of the Mac programming questions are unix questions and the other half - well,
    that half should be further halved into C/Carbon & ObjC/Cocoa and after all that you're left
    with a very small piece of pie.

    In other words, there are more Mac programmers here than we think, but even that seems
    to be 'not enough!'

    Nope. And with reason, I would risk.
    What would be enough was enough questions on mac related programming. Until then, I'm afraid it makes sense not having a mac specific board or an Objective C board.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
