G'day,

I find this happens quite alot. I go to launch an application, say from the dock, and it appears to be doing the right things, but only ends up show up in the finder window as "open" , but not actually open. I have to then go and find the file/doc i want to open.

Make sense?

What I'm saying is, it appears in the top finder window as the application name as per normal. But doesn't actually bring the app to the front.

clear as mud.

P.S my mates macbook pro is doing the same thing.

Cheers

I dont know the exapt app you are hving the problem wih, but some apps in OS X dont actually launch with the window initially open, kinda like opening a program in windows but only having the file menu appear in the window. I cant think of any examples at the moment, and all the apps I have installed dont do it so maybe im wrong but could be the answer?

I think I'll watch it over the next week and see which apps it happens to and then report back. I must say that I haven't seen it do it since i updated to 10.5.3

X-Code does this, as well as Cyberduck if you have closed the previous "browser" the last time you exited.
