OS X Mavericks :: Finder Freezes When Switching Tab / Folder

Jun 1, 2014

Finder freezes every time when switching to another tab or folder, or renaming a folder. I really don't know why Here two logs from the console. 

1. Log

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Freezes And Won't Relaunch When Attempting To Backup Using Time Machine

Jun 6, 2014

I have been backing up for years using Time Machine (TM) which uses a hard drive connected to my Time Capsule on my network. I use an external drive connected to the Time capsule.Every night, my MBP is scheduled to backup which it has done for years. The last successful backup was 4 days ago. It stopped working and when I tried to click on TM starting manually, it hangs up and freezes Finder. I try to relaunch Finder and it freezes the computer by taking all icons off my desktop. I can use mail and other programs but FINDER will not work. I have used disk utilities to check the drive AND repair permissions.

The only way I can shut down is by holding the on/off button and then restarting. The computer starts up fine and works UNTILL I try to back up to TM again. The whole thing happens again. My O/S is regulary updated and I checked that too.

THere must be something corrupted or screwed up with the TM / Finder links.

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Crash When Opening Any Folder On Desktop

Sep 11, 2014

Finder crashes when using any option from the Go menu (or key combo) except Airdrop.

Once Finder window is open on Airdrop any navigation to home folder or any other folder using side bar causes Finder to crash.

Using Go To Folder causes crash, even on hidden folder like /var

Finder is OK when opening files on desktop

All other apps can browse file system and open/save OK

Google Drive is not present on system (this used to be an issue a long time a go that caused similar symptoms in other threads)

Drop Box is installed. But issue occurs even when dropbox is not running

Using spotlight to open applications still works normally.

Clicking the Finder icon in the Dock results in a non-functional blank window entitled "Window", all tool buttons are disabled.

Repeatedly opening the same folder over and over results in the message "The last time you open Finder, it unexpectedly quite while reopening windows. Do you want to try to reopen its windows again? If you choose not to reopen windows, you may have to open and position the windows yourself" Two options "Don't Reopen" and "Reopen". Both buttons have no effect except to dismiss the dialog.

Steps Taken to fix:

Booted into recovery mode and performed repair disk and Permissions - Finder Still Crashes

Removed finder preference files using terminal~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sidebarlists.plist 

Recent changes to system:iTunes 11.4 Installed with normal Software Update. 

Possible Cause of Problem

Found app in iTunes that has File Sharing enabled and has a shared folder. Curious as to what was in the folder i dragged it to my desktop and double clicked. Im not sure if iTunes would have had enough time to copy the contents of the folder before i tried to open the folder. Finder crashed. This was the first time it happened.

iPhone app in iTunes that I picked in was "Ubersense".

OS X :: Mac Constantly Switching To New Finder Window

Feb 9, 2009

For the last 48 hours, my mac will constantly switch to a 'new' finder window every few minutes. I'll be typing away and then bang, I am back on the finder window and my application will be in the background, so I will have to click back on the application to continue working. It's extremely frustrating and I don't have a clue how to fix the problem.

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Beach Balling - Failed Setting Front Application To Finder - Error?

I upgraded my MacBook Pro quad core 2.5 from Lion to Mavericks. Since then I get a LOT of beachballs when I'm using Finder. I repaired permissions, deleted com.apple.finder.plist (twice) and finally reinstalled Mavericks over the first one. Still painfully slow and lots of beachballs.

OS X Mavericks :: Slow On Switching Between Programs

Aug 21, 2014

We've upgraded to Mavericks and Abobe CC in one time, so I'm not sure this is a Mavericks or an Indesign problem..Switching between 2 programs is very very slow now.f.ex copying text between Word and Indesign takes several seconds - if I copy too soon, I still have the previous text loaded.

Also opening several Indesign files, and switching between them is a problem: it takes time to preview correctly, text "dissapearing" for a few seconds, or only re-appearing when toggling between views..I work on a iMac mid 2011, 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 with 8 GB memory. how I can get the same spead back as before?

OS X Mavericks :: Switching USB Scanner Between Users On Same Machine

Aug 24, 2014

I have a neat scanner connected to my mac via USB.  My wife and I both use the scanner and have separate accounts on the same machine. The issue is that the scanner gets "connected" to either one user or the other.  Let's say the scanner is working fine for user A.  User B can't use the scanner properly.  It seems like first come first serve.  When user B pushes the scan button on the device and user B is the active account on OSX.  User A's account still gets the popup window responding to the scan request. I guess I am looking for a terminal command, or some procedure, so that user B can come in and gain access to the scanner without logging out user A.

OS X Mavericks :: Slow Startup And Apps Switching

Jun 20, 2014

I'm verifying such an annoying problem, mostly at startup that appears to solve automatically after OS Mavericks is running.  

Sometimes my iMac boot until the login windows in 45 seconds which is very good, but most of times I have to wait 30-40 minutes for the login windows to appears

and everything is running so slowly then.  

Using the following command in Terminal:

syslog -k Sender kernel -k Message CReq 'GPU |I/O e|find tok|n Cause: -|NVDA(|timed? ?o' | tail | open -efsyslog -k Sender kernel -k Message CReq 'GPU |I/O e|find tok|n Cause: -|NVDA(|timed? ?o' | tail | open -ef

OS X Mavericks :: Dock Keeps Switching On Macs With Dual Monitors

Dec 8, 2014

I have 2 monitors on my computers - 2 Mac Pros (2011) and an iMac.  All are running 10.10.1. I have one monitor in each case that is the "home" monitor - with the dock and files on the desktop.  All 3 of my computers keep switching the Dock to the other monitor. Once switched, the Dock stays on the other monitor until I use system preferences to change the arrangement. It started for me with OS 10.9

OS X Mavericks :: Outlook 2011 Reminders Switching Active Space

Jul 1, 2014

It seems that Outlook 2011 Reminders switch the active screen (when using multiple spaces in OSX which I always do) when they pop.  This seems to happen whether I have the reminders set to appear on all desktops or just the first desktop.  This is hugely annoying when I am in a fullscreen app (e.g. parallels) and suddenly I'm warped over to the first screen again. I'm talking about spaces functionality in OSX, not multiple monitors.  This feature.

MacBook Pro :: Laggy When Switching Desktops (workspaces) Running OS X Mavericks 10.9.4

Sep 10, 2014

Just recently my macbook has began to lag when I swipe three fingers left or right to get to another desktop. I believe it happened after I used VMWare Fusion 5 but I do not believe that is the problem because I have used it before without any issues. I also tried reinstalling Mavericks OS X but that did nothing. The transition is just not a clean and pleasant transition from one desktop to the other.

Software :: Finder Freezes For One User On IMac G5

May 31, 2008

iMac G5 running Tiger, Well in my infinite boredom I tried to make an image sequence out of the movie Braveheart using Quicktime Pro. I don't even know why I guess I just wanted to see what would happen. I set the computer to its task and went to bed, in the morning the computer was non responsive so I restarted manually. The computer powered up fine, but everything was missing from the desktop (and still is). Finder wouldn't open, but some programs will right away after you've restarted, but eventually it freezes up again. I try to relaunch finder, freezes again.

Using the startup disk and disk utility I was able to find that there are supposedly upwards of 65000 images on the desktop from Braveheart. I used the First Aid utility but it made no difference. Im pretty sure the computer is stuck trying to load all the images, but leaving it running for 24+ hours does nothing, it eventually goes into sleep mode like its not doing anything. I am able to login just fine on other users, but I cant access my files as there is no permission or whatever. I'm fine with reinstalling my OS, but I really need to get at some files on my login.

Software :: LaCie Porsche Drive Freezes Finder?

Sep 5, 2009

I have an external 500GB hard drive made by Lacie (the minimlistic metal Porsche design) which I use to do a full back up every few months of my internal hard drives.

I noticed yesterday when I plugged it in that it crashed the Finder on my MacPro (early 2008 dual quad core desktop) running 10.5.8. The finder just froze and after Force Quit would not relaunch. I had to restart the machine by pressing and holding the power button. This happened repeatedly, each time after the external drive had been running for 10-15 minutes, so I tried it with my MacBook Pro, also running 10.5.8. Exactly the same thing happened -- the Finder froze and I had to reboot the machine to restart it.

Intel Mac :: Finder Quits / Stalls And Freezes - Electrical Damage?

Jul 2, 2012

My 2.33gh intel core 2 is acting erratic. The finder quits, stalls and freezes...it turns off and then reappears. Programs fail. adobe will not run.It was on during the huge electrical storm last weekend. It started acting like this after. It was on a surge protector, but those are not 100%.

I can get a ways into backing up files. I am attempting to install Lion, but I did not journal the partition. And It looks like I have to clean install and erase the HD.If power surge did damage, software will not work.Does the finder issue look like electrical damage?

OS X Mavericks :: How To Copy Folder From Hidden Library Folder That Is Not On Startup Drive

Jun 5, 2014

I have a hard drive on my 2008 MacPro that's problematic and so I bought a new drive and installed Mavericks on it and am booting just fine on the new drive. There is however, one folder in the Library/Preferences folder that I need to copy over to the new drive.  All the tricks for accessing the Library folder work great on the start up drive, but I can't seem to access the Library folder on the old drive (both drives in the MacPro as it has 4 drive bays), even though the drive will mount.  How can I see that Library folder on the old drive?  Note  while I can mount the old drive, I can't boot to it.
