OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 Supplemental Update 1.0

Apple has released OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 Supplemental Update 1.0, a small maintenance release that comes just a little over a week after the original 10.10.3 update (see “Apple Releases OS X 10.10.3 with Photos,” 8 April 2015). This release fixes a video driver issue that bedeviled many users, preventing the system from starting up when running certain apps that capture video. AppleInsider and OS X Daily report that affected users had to resort to booting via Safe Mode, resetting the PRAM, or resetting the startup disk selection in System Preferences. This supplemental update is available via Software Update or via direct download from Apple’s Support Downloads Web site. (Free, 1.8 MB, 10.10.3+)

This was an easy and quick update on my 2103 MacBook Air, but on my 2011 MacBook Pro (upgraded to SSD), the progress wheel spun for over five minutes, and my available space decreased by over 10 GB. I wonder what was going on?

Well, maybe. But my 2012 Mini kernel-panicked TWICE in the half-hour after installing this update.

My MacAir 2012 with full SSD (and all updates) crashed and restarted on its own several times, no clue emerged as to why. Has not happened in last 2-3 days, unless it does now because it is reading this text and does so out of spite.

My observation ties back to either this update or the much larger, prior one that brought us 10.10.3 itself. My browsers, Chrome in particular, now are inclined to greatly enlarge (as in zoom in) that scale the screen with no or no apparent provocation, displays get wierd, and edges get lost as they get wider and can't be returned to their prior size or target. Anyone else having this? Have a cure from built in controls or, if need be, command instructions? I tried turning off track pad gestures to control screens, but to no avail.

I can't really imagine how 10.10.3 would affect Chrome's scaling, and I'm not seeing anything like that here. Perhaps try a Safe Boot and see it still happens? Same with trying in a clean account.
