 This list covers some of the known problems with [% rnote.name %].
 Please read this before reporting any new bugs.
 <ul>
+  <li>There is a known problem with SeaMonkey 2.48 crashing for some users on OS X 10.12 or greater.
+    If you experience a crash when starting SeaMonkey or trying to use mail or news please go back to 2.46
+    for now. To fix the crash we would need to port some changes back from a later release, which is still in
+    internal testing. This might break other things so, instead, we are trying to get the next 2.49.1 release
+    out of the door as fast as we can.
+    </li>
   <li>If you experience a hang and/or get a message box that a script is busy when opening the Data Manager
     try deleting the webappsstore.* files from your profile folder when SeaMonkey is not running.
     These contain data stored by web sites and will be recreated during the next start.
     If you are unsure if the information is needed please back them up before deleting them.
     The problem is tracked in <a href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1305624">bug 1305624</a>
     but so far no coding error has been found.
