    The messages app (which in itself is working fine and linked to my number and email accounts) seems to close when i hit red and not just disappear from the desktop. (The program completely shuts instead of staying running)

    I have to minimise it.

    Obviously I'd like it to work like mail and I am confused if it's normal or a bug/setting.

    File/close window shuts the whole program too.

    sometimes the active program light goes out and it still works, that normal?

    I've gotten into the habit of CMD+H things that I need to stay open when I don't want to see them. You would normally do CMD+W.
