    Hi there,
    I noticed a strange behavior in the Dock: Applications, Documents and Downloads are NOT updating (i.e. in Downloads I can still view Firefox's partial downloaded files .part) -- however if I open Downloads folder in Finder there are no .part files.
    Anyone can tell me how to fix it?
    Thanks!

    Of course in ~/Downloads. In fact, Downloads stack shows .part files. If I open Downloads in Finder, there aren't part files, but only completed files.
    How can I force the update of a stack?

    You can remove it and drag the Downloads folder back to the Dock. If that is not successful, then get rid of the dock.plist file and Restart.

    You can open up Terminal and type
    Code:
    sudo killall Dock
    Enter your password and the Dock will restart. The .part files will now be gone from the stack.

    Note: This will eject any minimized windows.
