In a stupid move, I close the Timeline and Canvas window and now they won't show up. They're grayed out at the Window tab and pressing command+2 or command+3 doesn't call them back. Going to Arrange and trying any of the window layouts doesn't solve the problem

You may have to delete your preferences. You can google search it. Just type in final cut delete preferences. Hope it helps.

I figured out a workaround. Start a new project and just drag everything from the old project's Browser to the new Browser. Seems like this is a bug if there's no easy way to get the windows back.

In the Browser window, double-click a Sequence to re-open the Timeline and Canvas window.

it works

the exact thing happened to me
what you have to do is:
in the browser it will say 'sequence' just double click on it and the canvas and timeline will pop up

Wow, lukeynoodle ... that's a long echo. You've repeated the same thing I said 6 months ago in this thread.
