I never want to see this popup on my computer again.

Is it possible to prevent "do not ask again" this type of dialog?

I haven't seen that message since around 10.6, but that error looks like 10.10 UI—interesting. I presume the answer below still works but can't test it –  George Garside Jul 2 at 19:14

Prerelease software often has many, many bugs. Would you be able to indicate the build / version of OS X you are running in case this is reproducible on 10.9 or earlier? –  bmike Jul 2 at 19:47

This screenshot is from 10.10b2 but I see this same behavior in 10.9 –  Full Decent Jul 2 at 23:25

Does this affect error reporting to Apple? –  Patience Jul 2 at 19:30

@Patience If the dialog would automatically send the report to Apple, the report will still be sent. If the report is only sent if you click Report (i.e. it's a third party app) then the report will not be sent. –  George Garside Jul 2 at 19:32
    
@GeorgeGarside Apple's advice differs from what you suggest. Help Center content for Mavericks includes: Report problems to Apple with help for automatic reporting and more. –  Graham Perrin Jul 2 at 21:12
    
@Graham Could you expand on what you're quoting from the link? It appears to support what I was saying? –  George Garside Jul 2 at 21:37
