So I went to use Spotlight and I got this...
Wow, that's quite unnatural. Try rebooting and see if the problem doesn't go away.
Log out/log in. Reboot?
still doing it after this... repair permissions?
I was so looking forward to a new ghall thread. The title had me so excited.
Mine was tucked under the menu bar the other day. I force quit Spotlight in Activity Monitor and all has been well since.
Sorry but for anyone else who's unsure, what exactly did you get?
The Spotlight results menu appearing halfway down the screen
Oooooor toss the plist file
Home folder > Library > Preferences > com.apple.spotlight.plist drag that file to the desktop and see if it fixes it.
It splattered water all over your screen? That's a serious bug.
I restarted and now it's fine. That was the weirdest thing.
Your Mac knows what you've been doing online with that girl. This will not be the last anomaly you will see.
Same for me once....and same result, I force quit of Spotlight in Activity Monitor solved the problem. I think a killall Spotlight would have worked as well....for the terminal inclined.
I think it's a Leopard bug, because I had the same thing happen to the Date/ Time drop-down from the Menu Bar. So it's not Spotlight specific, but related to Menu items. A restart restored it.
