My Downloads folder in my dock has been showing a download/progress bar at 50% since yesterday. There aren't any half-complete files in my Download folder, Google Chrome isn't awaiting any action to accept or discard an upcoming download nor am I copying anything into that folder.
The only files in my Downloads folder are OS X generated dotfiles:
➜ ~ ls -A Downloads .DS_Store .localized
A few things that I tried to fix the problem (unsuccessfully):
- repairing permissions
- removing the icon from the dock and putting it back in
- downloading something to see if the new progress would overwrite the problem
How do I get rid of this progress bar that seemingly does nothing but exist?
I'm using Mac OS X 10.8.1 on a MacBook Pro 9,1.
