Also note that there is a direct download link available for each Forge version that doesn't go through Ad Fly (see the note under 'You don't know which Forge version to get' at the top of this article).
If you're struggling with all things Forge then hopefully you found something here that will help.
Minecraft can also crash when there's a compatibility issue with your video driver card, but if you're able to run unmodded Minecraft then it's unlikely to start being an issue with Forge (but it's something to look into if all your other investigations turn up nothing).

If you downloaded Forge and a bunch of weird files came with it or your computer started acting strange after you installed it, then there's a strong chance you've downloaded malware. Probably one of two things: You didn't use the official Forge download page (files.minecraftforge.net) or you used the link that goes through Ad Fly and accidentally clicked on an ad or something masquerading as a download link.
So I'm going to run through some of the most common issues people seem to have, along with the solutions that work most of the time and suggestions for other stuff to try. Forge is a Minecraft mod that helps you to install other mods.
If you're looking for instructions for downloading and installing it, check the Parent's Guide To Installing Mods article first. If this is your first time installing Forge, pick the one that says Recommended and the option called Installer.
So you need to be super careful, and not click on anything other than the yellow SKIP AD button on the top right hand corner of the screen that will take you to the page with the download link.
Always triple-check before you click on anything that looks like a download link, and NEVER download anything from the internet without running good virus protection on your device.

When I uses this recipe (via Minecraft.munki.recipe) to install Minecraft, the app will not open.
The error I get is: Minecraft updater Unable to start Minecraft, if you are running from a dmg, please drag to Applications and try again It seems that this is related to permissions, because if I chown -R the app to the user who will run it, it works fine.
