Weird stuff. My home folder has been just showing a blank white page lately. Whenever I make a new window, its just white.
If I scroll up or down, everything appeared. If I typed the name of something and hit Command-O or command-down-arrow it would open just fine.
Since I touch-type and use keyboard shortcuts a lot, it hasn’t gotten in the way, but it has been worrisome.
Just a few minutes ago I recalled an old memory that Finder would only store some settings when you close a window with the red chicklet button.
I opened a new window, scrolled to make things show up, selected a subfolder and closed with the button. Now all my new windows show things properly again.
