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.
