    Whenever I activate mission control and then deactivate (to return to the desktop) it automatically switches to a different program. For example, I will have safari open (in the background) and will also have mail open as the active window. If I activate mission control, don't move the mouse or touch anything, and then deactivate mission control, safari will automatically become the active window and mail is hidden behind safari.

    I have tried changing all types of settings and even reinstalled lion, but nothing works. Does anyone know why this is happening? Is it just a bug or am I the only one experiencing this?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Mission Control is the most buggy piece of software ever created. This is very likely a bug that will or will not get fixed in the future, along with the 100 other bugs it has.

    I noticed this happens if you activate Mission Control while in an app with no open windows (or only minimized windows).
