Some of Mac users cannot upgrade to the latest version. The problem affect both Pro and Free edition. We are aware of the issue and is working on the fix.

At this moment, we are building and testing the Mac installation image for the latest version 1.9.6 for Pro and Free edition. We will make them available as soon as ready.

One workaround is to downgrade to the 1.8.1 and then upgrade.

JoyBidder Pro for Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion (or sort of)

My dear Mac users,  if your JoyBidder, possibly some other your favorite apps suddenly stop working after your recent OS X 10.8.x Mountain Lion upgrade, please read on. If you are planning to upgrade, make sure your favorite apps are compatible with Mountain Lion.

The problem appears to be caused by tightened security measure from the latest Mac OS X 10.8 upgrade. We are currently working on the fix, but, no eta yet, and from the look of it, the fix could take some days or even weeks to get ready), in the mean time, you can still run JoyBidder Pro as a Firefox Addon, that is, if you don't mind install Firefox on your Mac.

Once you have installed Firefox from, go to and click the "Firefox Extension" button.

JoyBidder Addon for Firefox works exactly the same as standalone desktop application. However, you need to re-config your eBay User Id and re-populate your item list, because addon and application don't share data.

CRITICAL BUG FIX: Update to version 1.8.1 NOW!

Latest update 1.8.1 is available for Pro and Free. It fixed a critical bug that auction items cannot be added or updated to JoyBidder due to changes eBay made during the last night. The fix was released within 5 hours when the issue was first reported. Existing users should upgrade to 1.8.1 as soon as possible. If you don't want to wait for the scheduled auto-update alert, you can upgrade manually.

Note: If you are using the Free version for Firefox, due to the Mozilla's rigid review process, the new version will be reviewed by AMO reviewers before it can be made public. (it could take 5 to 7 days).
