I am running QGIS 2.10, and I'm trying to geocode a list of addresses using a .csv file in the MMQGIS geocoder. I just installed the plugin. When inputting my file, I immediately get a Python Error:

An error has occured while executing Python code: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Users/derekkaden/.qgis2/python/plugins/mmqgis/mmqgis_dialogs.py", line 1143, in browse_infile_dialog header = mmqgis_read_csv_header(self.iface, newname) File "/Users/derekkaden/.qgis2/python/plugins/mmqgis/mmqgis_dialogs.py", line 2605, in mmqgis_read_csv_header header = reader.next() Error: new-line character seen in unquoted field - do you need to open the file in universal-newline mode?

Does anyone know how I can fix this issue?

For anyone else searching in the future the error message in question:

Error: new-line character seen in unquoted field - do you need to open the file in universal-newline mode?

That error seems to happen on mac computers. The script expects a universal / windows line-end character. Probably could be fixed by the plugin developer, but in the mean time there's some fix suggestions here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/17315635/csv-new-line-character-seen-in-unquoted-field-error

to quote:

For Mac OS X, save your CSV file in "Windows Comma Separated (.csv)" format.
