OS X V10.7 Lion :: Dock And Toolbar Disappeared?

Jun 16, 2012

The dock and toolbar at the top have disappeared from the screen. They re-appear when I click in the area where they should be but disappear once again whenever I click elsewhere. I have also lost the ability to minimize open windows. I can resize them manually, maximize and exit them I just cannot minimize them! (The orange button has gone grey.)

I have checked that I am not in fullscreen mode and I have unchecked all the automatic hide settings in the system preferences. This is only occuring when I'm using Mozilla Firefox.

I have a feeling that I accidentally clicked a button or unwittingly used a keyboard command to enter this setting, but I can't remember what I pressed!

Jun 8, 2009

i also can't click on anything on the desktop, the only thing that is there and works are the words on the top, stopping at help. Also after every word i write, a pop up says 'alert cannot contact spell checker,' When i open safari i also cannot get it back to finder, and i can't search anything on the computer because after the second letter the screen flashes.

It started this morning i tried to write something in stickies and the computer went crazy to a blue screen and the loading circle started spinning around so i shut it down, when i loaded it up i had all these problems.

OS X :: Dock Disappeared - Can't Restart / Shut Down

Dec 2, 2009

I've been happily in love with my iMac since 2006. Never had any problems.

Just got back from working abroad over a month and my business partner (new to Mac) has been using my computer. Apparently the computer was switched on nearly 24/7 and only been restarted a couple of times.

At first everything seemed fine until I ran the software update.

First problem, there was an error when doing the security update so couldn't complete the whole update.

iMac still working fine though..

First, it took ages to startup, then the dock didn't load. Tried restarting at first, didn't respond, shutting down neither....

Then when opening finder, the menus on the left hand side, Hard Drive, Documents, Music, etc... all gone...

Most applications won't open... even some jpegs, pdfs, etc...

Also the DiskImageMounter, Terminal and probably loads of other stuff has disappeared I'm not even aware of...

Tried to open 'About this Mac'... no response...

Tried to open.. 'Mac OSX Software' the following message appeared... Your system settings are being updated. Unable to open your preferred Web browser. Try again in a few minutes.

I've looked at the utilities folder, checked the CoreServices, tried 'killall Dock' (discovered that the terminal utility disappeared), etc, etc.

OS X :: Dock Fully Disappeared When Trying To Change Appearance

Jun 24, 2009

I followed some guide on how to change my dock. It was this one. I got up until this bit.
Go to Macintosh HD > /System/Library/Core Services/
Right-Click on "Dock" and select "Show Package Contents"
Go to /Contents/Resources/
Backup the files you are about to replace (Incase you did not listen, here they are)
Move those same original files to the trash

Then I got stuck. I resetted my Mac and now I have no dock ! How do I get my dock back! I have the back up folder, but where the hell do I put it to get back my dock. On the " Dock " icon I have a little circle with a line init. This is what the contents of my Dock folder looks like .. inside " Contents " I have the " Back Up " folder. As you can see I already put in the contents of the Back Up Folder into the Dock folder but nothing has changed. This is whats in my Dock Back Up Folder.

Software :: Apps Icons Disappeared From The Dock

Feb 6, 2008

My problem began when I was using Skype on my PowerBook G4 Intel, running on Tiger. First my profile photo and mood message disappeared, and I was appearing to my friend as "offline". I quitted out and then logged back in, but the information had already been lost. So I thought I'd Restart my computer.

After logging in, I noticed that all of my installed applications had disappeared from my dock, and it looks as though the dock went back to default settings.

1) Is it simply a matter of creating new icons in the dock? Or is this a symptom of a deeper problem?

2) I don't have my OS X install disk with me, because I left it in Thailand, where I'd purchased my computer, but I do have a friend with a MacBook Pro. Can I run Disk Utility to try and repair the disk from my friend's laptop?

3) Could this problem have been caused by Skype? By the way, Skype was set to NOT automatically open at my User Log-In, but for some reason, after I restarted my computer, it's been launching after I Log-In.

Software :: Dock Vanished And Icons Disappeared?

Aug 12, 2010

I'm fairly new to the OS X seen as i converted from windows around 3 weeks ago, basically i started my MacBook Pro up this morning and logged on, the programs which usually start up ran as normal, however when i clicked to close one of the programs the whole dock disappeared. I then proceeded to log off and log back on again, which gave no result. Next I opened Activity Monitor and closed the process which also hasn't worked. Finally i tried the command 'killall -KILL Dock' in Terminal and that hasn't forced it to reappear either. I also have restarted the MacBook Pro several times.

I then went to Dock preferences to see if it was hidden and it wasn't i also noticed while doing this that the icons on the left hand panel for sections such as 'home' have vanished as well.
