View Full Version : Tiger 10.4.1 'sticky' folders that WON'T CLOSE! (list view)

Has anyone else had this happen? Having a folder that simply will not stay closed in list view? I've had it happen for a long time on ~/Library/Mail (in Panther too), and just recently had it happen with /Library/DiscRecording (which contains DeciceProciles/LaCie.drprofile - I just installed LaCie DiskRecording package for the d2 drive, which I guess added this.

The 'Mail' diectory is owned by me (the only, and admin user on the machine) 'DiscRecording' directory is owned by 'system' but the admin group can read and write to it. /Library is the same way. Perhaps the .DS_File? It's permissions are :

iBook-G3:/Library jswitte$ ls -a -l
-rwxrwxr-x 1 root admin 6148 Jul 8 17:43 .DS_Store

Which looks like I can read and write it, being part of the group, even though it's owned by root.

Any ideas?

This is another one of the zillions of things that is totally pathetic about the Finder.

Make the change you want, close the window, log out and log back in. That usually takes care of it. You can try deleting the .DS_store file for good measure.
