    I'm running Tiger, with all the latest updates installed and i'm having trouble with my dock.

    I have it at the bottom of the screen, and have it set to hide automatically. However, it now doesn't reappear, and to view the dock i have to press Cmd+Alt+d but sometimes that doesn't work either.

    Anyone any ideas/having the same problem?

    Do you have any theme changers or Dock modifiers installed?

    Nope, nothing like that. But now, for some reason, it's all working fine, so i don't know what's going on.

    I guess i'll repost when/if things go wrong again.

    Sometimes a simple restart can get things working properly again. Hopefully it all stays normal and functional for you. :)

    Again

    The problem has reappeared, for no reason as far as i can tell.

    I'm also having trouble with being able click on things in Safari. For example, I am unable to click on an email in my gmail inbox to allow me to read the full message, and I am also unable to click on my Facebook status to change that.

    Could the dock and clicking problems be related?

    I have issues like that with Safari every now and then, but resetting it from the Safari menu always fixes it for me.

    As for the Dock, have you tried removing a file named com.apple.dock.plist and restarting?
