A long time ago when I got Mac OS Lion, I did a screen recording using the QuickTime Player app. Now I can't.



1. Launch QuickTime Player.

2. In the File Menu, choose New Screen Recording.


The Screen Recording window appears. Here's where it gets wierd.


3. Click on the Screen Recording window.


Actual result: Whatever app is behind the Screen Recording window where I click becomes active and, if it's not the Finder, moves a window in front of the Screen Recording window.


Expected result: The Screen Recording window is active and I can interact with it, including starting a recording.


Any ideas what might be going on here and how I can fix it?


QuickTime Player 10.1 (501.29)

Mac OS 10.7.5 

Dock hiding is on

Mac OS X (10.7.5), 4 GB RAM
