    Anyone experiencing this? I set the width of the columns in list view. Right click "show view options" and then "set as default".

    It holds for a while when opening new finder windows, then I go to open a new finder window after some time and the first column (name) has resized by about 30% larger.

    Is this a bug... is there a way to fix it?

    For those who may be experiencing the problem, deleting the preferences file followed by a reboot, seems to have solved it for me.

    Sorry, I forget the name right now, but there is an app that auto sizes the name column to fit at all times. It works very well in Mavericks.

    You might be thinking of Xtrafinder. It will AUTO-SIZE all NAME columns according to size.

    I tried this, but five minutes later the column width is right back to bugging out.

    Wiping the Finder prefs didn't work for me but Xtrafinder did as a temp solution. The only thing it doesn't do well is adjust the widths of already opened windows (Restore Opened Windows). But that's a minor blip.

    Thanks for the app recommend.
