My MATLAB R2011b ( 64-bit maci64 keeps crashing. When I for example open a large matrix in the variable editor and keep on scrolling down MATLAB suddenly crashes. Furthermore it crashes when I close several figures. Any suggestions?
I run it in Mac OS X 10.7.1.

It also happens to me very frequently on Mac OS 10.6.8. It is necessary to set default graphic renderer to OpenGL (it helped me alot)
that can be done in startup file, and also check you OpenGL bugs and if there is any try workarounds, I have to use this workaround:
Although most of crashs are resolved by using OpenGL, there are many other unknown cases. I appreciate if someone can help for arbitrary crashs.

The bug report the Holger mentioned back in January has a patch for 12a (only) attached to it. See the related topic Matlab crashing randomly on Macosx Lion.

I love Macs, and after I've read so many problems in this forum, I recommend to run Matlab under Windows.
Sorry for this pessimistic answer. I hope some Mac users disagree and post a real solution.
