Why has Safari suddenly shifted to the right hand side of the page and then when I quit it, it disappears off my screen.  I have to go to help then to get it back!

    Try doing a Dock restart using the following Terminal command:


    killall Dock


    Log out/in and test. If that doesnt work, you need to look in your user Library/Applications Support/Dock for the .db. Use the Finder “Go To Folder” command. Enter ~/ Library/Applications Support/Dock.  Move the .db to your desktop.


    Then try a dock reset.


    Applications/Utilities/Terminal enter the command


    killall Dock


    Log out/in test. If it works okay, delete the .db from the desktop.


    If the Dock is the same, return the .db to where you got them from, overwriting the newer ones.


    If you prefer to make your user library permanently visible, use the Terminal command found below.


    Show User Library


    You might want to bookmark the command. I have to use it after every update. I have also been informed that if you drag the user library to Finder it will remain visible.
