OS X :: Icons Disappear From Dock When The App Is Quit?

OS X Mavericks :: Desktop Icons Are Randomly Blinking?

Jun 4, 2014

I just replaced the original 750GB drive on my MacBook Pro with a SanDisk SD6SB2M512G1022I SSD.  It's much faster, and I still have tons of open space.   

But every once in a while the desktop folder icons disappear and then reappear.  What could be causing this?  Is there something wrong with the drive?  Could the copying process have corrupted something in Mavericks?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)

OS X Mavericks :: Can't Drag Icons From Dock

Dec 2, 2014

I can't drag files out of stacks (Downloads or Application folders) or app icons off my dock. I reset my SMC when I rebooted and it worked but then I reboot the next day (today) and it won't work anymore. Do I really have to reset SMC every time I boot up? I recently downgraded from Yosemite because it is incomplete and full of bugs and now I have this issue. 

OS X: 10.9.5

OS X :: Changing Dock Background - Folder Icons And App Icons?

May 1, 2010

First off, I've searched the forums, but can't find an answer -- sorry if I missed something.Just got a new machine running 10.6.3 -- ugh, the dock and folders and so on look like clunky Windows junk :-(I miss my simple, elegant 10.4.11 dock ...I don't want to add novelty icons or that kind of thing, I just want a borderless dock that's semi-transparent or clear. And apparently all the apps out there to change the dock background don't work with Snow Leopard.I know CandyBar can help me with the folder icons and app icons, but as far as I can tell, not the actual dock background.

OS X :: Excel Files Disappear From Dock?

Aug 26, 2009

I have five different excel files on the dock (they appear below the line, along with the trash icon). When I click on them a question mark appears on top of the excel symbol, and "help" says this means they have been deleted. None of them were saved anywhere but on the dock. But I have not opened three of them for weeks, and cannot find any of them with "finder". I always save when prompted before closing the Excel application, and would never knowingly delete them, as they represent hundreds of hours of work.

I'm on a Mac mini, with OS X 10.4.11

Safari :: Dock And Menu Disappear Only For It?

Mar 31, 2012

My dock and menu disappear only when I am using Safari. They re-appear when I hover my mouse at the location that they should be at, but for some reason their default positions are to be hidden.The dock and menu are present for all other apps and when I'm on the desktop--basically whenever Safari isn't "chosen" as the active window. I have checked to make sure that Safari is NOT in Full Screen mode.

MacBook Pro :: Screen Will Flash A Little And Icons At Bottom Will Disappear On Safari

Jun 28, 2014

I'm having some issues with my Macbook Pro that just arose today. Randomly, when I'm on Safari, the screen will flash a little and the icons at the bottom will disappear. They will come back in a couple seconds and pop-ups that I usually only get when I first log on will appear. Safari also refreshes the page I was viewing. I did a little research and thought the issue might be google drive, but I do not have it installed on my Mac.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Do Apps Disappear From The Dock After Close The Application

Jun 5, 2012

This just recently started to happen. Safari and Mail disappear everytime I quit the applications and I have to relaunch from launchpad. I have the checked the option "keep in the Dock". 

I am running Mac OS X version 10.7.4 on an iMac7,1 and have been for a while.  

I can't seem to find any current information in the Apple Discussion Forums. Probable something really simple for a really annoying occurance.

Software :: Files Disappear From Dock After 2 Second / Error-95 No Mountable Systems

Feb 5, 2009

1. Whenever I try to open files on my Mac such as Firefox and Windows Messenger for Mac, they appear on the Dock for 2 seconds, bouncing up and down like if you open a program, then disappear off the Dock and nothing happens. How can I open these programs?

2. I'm trying to install Yahoo Messenger as an alternative, but whenever I try to install it it says Error-95 No-Mountable-Systems. What does this mean and how do I stop it?

OS X :: Dock Items Disappear When Drag And Drop Desired Application

Oct 5, 2009

Has anybody had any experience with Dock items disappearing? I simply drag and drop the desired application I was to remain in the Dock, and within 10 seconds it just disappears from the Dock! I haven't un-installed the application. I did have Dock items selected to Sync in MobileMe, but I disabled that as a test. I've also tried right-clicking the application while it's open, and selecting the 'Keep in Dock' option, but same result. After about 10 seconds of closing the app, it disappears from the Dock. I've run Repair Disk Permissions, no effect. I found a similar thread on this forum, but it suggested basically wiping the Mac and starting again, which I don't really find as a solution!

OS X Mavericks :: Apps Disappear From Launch Pad

Sep 2, 2014

I know this question has been asked and answered but when I read the answer in previous threads, it makes no sense to me. It gives a terminal command that says killall;dock. How can that fix a problem that involves the launchpad.  

I had lots of apps in launchpad now I have fewer than half.I know the apps are actually in the applications folder but why does the icon not appear in Launchpad and how do I get them back.

Every few months I have an issue with iCal. One or more of my calendars COMPLETELY disappear. I have an iPhone with a list of calendars on the phone and on iCloud.

OS X Mavericks :: Apps And Stuff Disappear When Upgrade From Snow Leopard

Sep 7, 2014

Will my apps and stuff and things I've downloaded disappear when I upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mavericks? I am afraid everything will go away Do I need a USB to put my stuff in and then put it back when Mavericks has been applied? Because i'm downloading Mavericks right now and my iMac is so old it doesn't support half the stuff the new ones do. It was made in early 2009. And also, if it will stay, would it go away if I entered a different apple ID when it will reboot and say "Enter APPLE ID"

OS X :: Best Way To Hide Dock Icons?

Jan 14, 2011

I don't want some applications to show their dock icon when they're running. Preview is an example. I've used the freeware app "Configure Dock Application Tile", but it always gives me an error saying I don't have permission. Is there another app that can do this?

OS X :: Cannot Move Dock Icons?

Jan 8, 2009

New Mac owner...

I attempt to drag a dock icon to a new location on the dock, but it won't let me. The other icons don't separate so the icon will drop to the location I want. Randomly, items will separate when I hover over so I could drop the item between them, but only in that spot and no other locations. What am I missing here?

So, I'm unable to put the dock icons exactly where I want them. I've installed all updates.

OS X :: Disappearing Dock Icons?

Mar 19, 2009

This has happened to me a few time and I'd like to know if others are having the same problem:

Background: MBP 17", 4gb ram, lots of disk space, OSX 10.5.6, all apps located on system disk drive.

Problem: every so often, a random icon will just disappear from the Dock. Today it was Firefox, about a month ago it was iTunes. I can add them back, but why do they leave in the 1st place.
