    Wow, that was quick and worked! I didn't search for this one, sorry if this has been posted time and time again. I don't know what I was thinking. :eek:

    Thanks :eek:

    Someone else had this problem, but with the "Sharing" button instead.

    ...Along with about 500 other people (or at least it seems like that many).

    Actually, it seems to move around more than that...usually in the center of the window, though...it happens so often though and is a hard thing to search the forum for (I mean how do you describe a thing like that?) that I created a text clipping of the solution and keep it handy for times like this.

    Yeah, I didn't mean to imply that it's always in the same place, just that it is a very common problem.

    That was actually my response to After G's post...I guess I probably should have quoted.

    Now you know why I have to keep a text clipping handy...I type too damn slow. :eek:

    Well, I have another visual problem. :(

    The tabs are misaligned up 1 pixel. :confused:

    I am using it right now in a another user account I created and it looks fine, but when I go back to my account it's messed up still. :(

    Here's what I figured out:

    I made a new user account and deleted my old one, and before I copied all the files in Library/Preferences/* the tabs looked fine, then once I replaced them it got screwed up again. Then I moved them all back out and the problem continued. It's got to be a problem with one of those files. :mad:

    Okay I found my solution, I don't know if it will work for anyone else though, but I'll post it anyway.

    I went through all the files moving them to the Desktop and back in ~/Library/Preferences, but it seemed to be a combination of files that were screwing it up. So I moved all of them, and took only the ones I knew I needed. The tabs are fixed, but I had to fix all the settings I had in Safari, but since my computer is so new I didn't have that much stuff to change. :)
