Mavericks Finder bugs

Just updated my mbp to Mavericks, and found this strange bug with using Finder and its new multi-tabs.

When there are mutli-tabs of finder and I want separate them by selecting one and dragging it out, it shows a tiny preview of the finder while still holding down the button and releasing it will split the finder into 2 windows, however, the little preview still appears on the desktop background forever until I restart the computer.


Also when using 'app expose' those tiny preview boxes also get selected even though I have closed their windows. Clicking on them doesn't do anything either.


Restarted after installing mavericks, but problem still persists.
Can someone tryout the same thing and see if this happens to you too?

While in Finder if you click the File menu you will see a menu item for New Tab. Ot go to the View menu while in Finder and select Show Tab Bar. That will put a tab bar at the top with a plus sign on it you can click for a new tab.

Right-click then choose "Open in New Tab".

Tried it, but the little preview goes away promptly as the window opens for me.
Have you tried restarting just Finder rather than the whole Mac?
Command-Option-Escape will bring up a dialog that'll let you do that.

I got a Fusiondrive (128GB + 1TB) and folders with with >1000 files in Finder are loading really really slow. It feels like Win98 with 32MB RAM.

I'm also having this problem. What's odd is that if I create a new OS X user account, I don't experience the issue on that new account. Nor on a Guest User account. It only occurs on my primary account (the one that I brought forward from Mountain Lion, and Lion, all the way back to Leopard).

I've also had the bug with those little preview screens acting as independent Finder windows! Can someone with a dev account please report it to Apple?

Cool Still no fix for this bug?

Jep, got the same bug since the first day of Mavericks. Dragging a tab in Finder creates a little thumbnail, which stays. Anyone reported this? Cant imagine Apple didnt see that by now...

Force-closing the Finder works for me to close the small preview screens.

Wink the same

I have exactly the same issues here but it doesn't bother me, I just need to restart the finder and the bug gone.

bug tabs maverick - Dragging a tab in Finder creates a little thumbnail, which stays

Ok. I found this solution :

Go to Finder and select your user/home folder. With that Finder window as the front window, either select Finder/View/Show View options or go command - J. When the View options opens, check ’Show Library Folder’. That should make your user library folder visible in your user/home folder. Select Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist. Move the .plist to your desktop.

Restart and test. If it works okay, delete the plist from the desktop.

If the same, return the .plist to where you got it from, overwriting the newer ones.

Send Apple feedback. They won't answer, but at least will know there is a problem. If enough people send feedback, it may get the problem solved sooner.

Feedback
