I have posted several issues concerning Mountain Lion since I first installed it a few weeks after it came out in July 2012.
These issues have still NOT been addressed in the latest Mac OS X 10.8.3 update:
- Hide others (hide all other open applications) still means that when returning to an eMail in Apple Mail or a note in Apple's Notes program, the cursor is gone, disappeared, and the highlighting is strange too – a weird brown/grey and not the default highlight color. Have to click on another box or note or something to get the cursor to reappear. Over 6 months like this… Have you experienced this? Try to do it and see what you get.
- The Finder windows don't retain settings in icon view: Icon size, background color or picture, sorting (reverts to none) and icon /item view all change back to "32x32, white, none and no item preview or icon view checked" Again, please let me know if you see this-- you need to put some pictures as window backgrounds, color them, view in Icon view- set the icon size for something other than 32x32…
- A new problem: Never had this issue until 10.8.3: The icons of .webloc which one drags to the Desktop from Safari or otherwise store in folders no longer have an icon picture - they are just a plain white icon with a tab fold-down upper right. Sometimes they appear as before, mostly not.
#2 above is clearly the most annoying and makes icon view almost worthless to use. Constantly resetting key windows-- and funny that it mainly affects the same windows but can happen to any window I open. Often upon a restart, but can happen at anytime.
