I'm not quite understanding the problem. You say that when you click on the stack, it previews the files, I am assuming you mean in Grid or Fan view, but then you say when you click on a file it doesn't open Finder? Why would it? When you click on a file it launches the file in its default program. Also, what "show in finder" button are you talking about? I only see "show in finder" when you hold down the mouse over the stack itself, not specific files in the stack.

Sorry for the confusion. I have my documents folder in the dock. When I click on it the grid view shows up, when i go to click on a folder in the grid nothing happens. The folder is not opened in the finder. The "show in finder" also does not work. For instance, in my downloads stack, when I click on show in finder nothing happens. I have to go into the finder and manually open the downloads folder if I want access to it.

Hope this helps.

Now, I had the same problem. I restarted. Everything was fine. About an hour ago, the problem started again. I rebooted just now and it's not working again! One minute after rebooting.
I really like my stacks and use them a lot so I need that to work.

Any ideas?

Same Problem

I'm having the same problem, I have Leopard 10.5.2 and when I click on my stack the preview pops open...then when I click on a folder, there is no response in the finder. If I command click, the folder opens but I shouldn't need to do this.
