What plugin can I use with OS X 10.7 instead of Sibelius Scorch for reading/transposing music? Scorch crashes with Firefox.


Prior to 10.7, I could use scorch all the time. Now it shows up with a known stability issue. I want to read/transpose music prior to buying. Currently I've noticed the problem on http://www.gettymusic.com/USA-sheetmusic.aspx. If I try using scorch, firefox crashes.

Scorch has not updated their plugin in a long time to resolve the various stability issues, which is why we blocked it.

Please contact the company you are using to view the sheet music and ask them for alternatives to scorch. Also ask them to either stop using scorch or to get in touch with scorch to update their software.
