    This has happened to me a few time and I'd like to know if others are having the same problem:

    Background: MBP 17", 4gb ram, lots of disk space, OSX 10.5.6, all apps located on system disk drive.

    Problem: every so often, a random icon will just disappear from the Dock. Today it was Firefox, about a month ago it was iTunes. I can add them back, but why do they leave in the 1st place.

    Hints or suggestions or explanations are appreciated.

    I had a similar problem recently. I ended up cleaning things out with Onyx and that did the trick. I wish I could remember which process was the one that took care of the problem...
