2. enter selected users about forums

4. System shuts down completely
Actual Results:  
System shut down and reboot

Expected Results:

Often I feel soemone at the about.com forums may have a "boot" which they maybe using firefox to activly boot others offline. Becasue when I use Safari or Opera browser these issue do not occour.

Do you m4eant "about.com causes a OS X reboot if I use Firefox" ?

In that case it would be invalid as this would be an OS X bug.

again.. if one logs About.com using the firefox web browser.. after a short time.. OS X sismply shuts down without warning.. Yet if I use Safari or Opera in the same senario.. I do not get any error or shut down.. This leads me to belive its a Firefox issue or an About.com issue.
The is not an About.com or a Firefox issue at all, this is an OS X issue.
It doesn't matter if you get this only with Firefox, this is still an OS X issue.

Please ask the apple support for help, thanks
