This is the Handoff feature on iOS 8 and OSX 10.10. It appears when you are doing something on one device and lets you finish your task on your computer. You can read more on Handoff and Continuity here.

In Terminal.app type: defaults read com.apple.dock contents-immutable If it comes back with 1 then Make a backup of the plist file and then try this command to unlock the dock? defaults write com.apple.dock contents-immutable -bool no; killall Dock Hope it works, let me know :)

I know it may seem totally unrelated, but if you have the Pushbullet extension installed for chrome, try disabling "Universal copy & paste". You may need a restart afterwards.

The plist edit should work with Signed Apps, you just might need to force a resign. Try the command sudo codesign -f -s - /path_to_app/appname.app, replacing appname with the name of the app you are looking to hide from the dock. Note that this will also disable menu bar actions, but all keyboard shortcuts should still work.

You can drag broken links out of the dock by click and drag them to the middle of the screen. Then use spotlight to locate the files - on your Mac or on a time machine backup before they went missing.

The version 2.3.8 that came out the day after you asked this implemented a Custom theme in Preferences that allows you to have 100% opacity.

Going by what I see on my Mac, and looking at your examples, it seems pretty certain that the order is alphabetical. I would expect that if there were a way to specify a different ordering, it would be under the Options submenu, but alas, there is nothing of the sort there.

The badges populate when certain conditions are met. In most cases an action needs to be performed before the badge is removed/updated. Badges can be cleared easily if the developer who wrote the app adds an optional action to ignore the current conditions and clear the badge. Acting like a kind of reset. So you are limited to the developers actions or ...

In general, it depends heavily upon the App in question. OS X Mail for instance has the ability to select one folder for the dock count. It also has hooks that allow a third party developer to heavily customize the dock icon for Mail app based on multiple criteria. http://www.creativeinaustria.com/DockStar

You have to edit the file ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist. You need to replace every label like "file-label" => "AppName" with "file-label" => "". Restart the Dock or logout and back again to activate the changes.

Did you try this? Finder and Dock issues in OSX 10.10.1 I had the same exact problem and it was definitely caused by Pushbullet extension in Chrome. Disabled completely the extension, restarted the system and the dock started working. Don't know if it was caused specifically by the "Universal copy & paste" option being enabled or the extension as a ...

Is it possible you're unwittingly holding down the command key while dragging. The command key temporarily "locks" the Dock, so that drags to/from the Dock do not affect it. This is new in Yosemite. The purpose is two-fold: When dragging a document to the Dock, it prevents icons already present from "dancing away" from the one you're dragging, making it ...
