This is a progress bar under Downloads folder. It sometimes doesn't go away after completing the downloads. One solution for this is to enter this command in Terminal: killall Dock This will reset the Dock.


Try following in Terminal to adjust the Dock behavior. defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-time-modifier -float 0.5 compliment that with killall Dock to make it active. The number at the end is in seconds (delay) so choose what it suits you. To return to original settings use defaults delete com.apple.Dock autohide-time-modifier


I suspect that the Clock application is code-signed, which is likely what is causing the crash. I tried to do the same LSUIElement change in the plist file to Clock.app and it gave the same crash. Some research told me the following: There's one more step to the process if the developer has signed the application with an Apple Developer Certificate — ...


Mini DisplayPort and Thunderbolt are essentially the same connection, just with different hardware controlling them. Thunderbolt is essentially a combination of Mini DisplayPort and PCIe.

This is because Applescript treats each application as an object, and some applications handle windows differently, meaning they can't all be manipulated or detected. I haven't even been ...


The same happened to me also. Just found out the most simplest of tricks. Just move it anywhere in the dock and the bar disappears.


This is a known bug in Yosemite (and I'm pretty sure it occurred in Mavericks, too). I see it quite often.
