    Hi,

    Ever since I bought and installed OS X Lion from the App Store, some strange occurrences have been happening on my late 2010 MacBook Pro

    The most annoying of these is my applications seem to become transparent to the desktop in a checkered pattern and then reset themselves when i move the touchpad again.

    The attachments are screenshots of what im talking about. On the second one you can clearly see the checkered desktop showing through my Google Chrome window. At first i thought this problem was only Chrome but the first picture displays it is also occurring in iTunes. I have also had it appear in Photoshop which is extremely annoying as it disrupts my work.

    Please any help would be appreciated.

    My 2010 MBA (4gb) did that with Safari ...... was the final straw in going back to SL. Yes, it was a formatted clean install ....:(

    I'm experiencing that issue on my 2010 13" MBP.
    OP, remove your FB screen shot. One screenshot will do.

    Don't worry i have blurred out all personal information and resubmitted the screencap. I think it shows the problem better than the first image so I want it up.

    I don't have an explanation for this but I believe that Safari and Chrome and possibly iTunes use the WebKit engine, maybe it's WebKit related.

    Do you perhaps know of anyway to troubleshoot this to see if it goes away?

    I've got a new MacBook pro 13". A warning box saying that I have no more disk space on my primary drive. Problem now is I arrive at the login screen after startup (which is when the warning box appears repeatedly). I then type the password as usual but now it doesn't take me to the desktop. It remains stuck on the login display screen. Therefore this prevents me from being able to delete files so that I can free up the space.
    Has anyone else experienced something like this and can anyone help?

    I'm trying to do just that, but I can't figure it out. I'm forced to use my iPhone since I can't log in on my MacBook even after entering the correct password
