    All,

    Odd thing just started happening on my work machine. When I close a window (Not a full screen application, just chrome, word, ect), The menu bar will just disappear from the top of the screen. I need to click on the desktop, and it reappears.

    Anyone see anything similar? Running 10.8.2 here.

    I have seen it reported as bug with 10.8.2 several times, thus 10.8.3 might be able to fix it, once it is released.

    Thanks. Hope it's quick, it's really annoying.

    Sorry for the bump, but I have this issue too. I previously had a few macs with ML installed, and this issue happened rarely, if ever. I just got a new rMBP today, and the menu bar disappears nearly every single time I switch application windows. Hopefully 10.8.3 fixes this.

    Just got my 15" rMBP today and checked MacRumors to see if it was a common issue. It appears it's not just me.

    This definitely did not happen on my 2012 MBA.

    Just got the new MBA for my gf as well. At first I thought something was wrong with the new computer because this never happened with my MBP running ML. Glad to see it's common. But if its been around since 10.8.2 I wonder if Apple is going to address it?

    This just happened to me too –*and I think I may have an idea why.

    Watching Netflix full screen on Chrome, then closed the laptop to put it to sleep. When I opened it later, the browser window was no longer full screen and both menu bar and dock weren't showing or popping up when hovered over.
    Only clicking desktop or Cmd+Tabbing to Finder brings it back.

    Tried 1) Force Quit ––> Relaunch Finder and 2) Terminal ––> killall Finder, and neither works.

    Is there an "Always On Top" toggle (or keyboard shortcut) somewhere in Finder that we've all accidentally triggered?
