I'm on OS X Mavericks. In Finder, I use the "List" view. In this view, since upgrading to Mavericks, the column widths keep changing. Basically, the
Name column expands to fill the window up, when you resize a Finder window. But worse of all, they are then fixed at that new width. So for instance, I open a folder, such as
~/Downloads, then increase the width horizontally to the right. I close this, then open
~/, which is the original width size. I then open the
~/Downloads folder, and now the columns are wider than the window.
Is there any way to stop this from happening? Does this only happen to me? I already tried resetting my
com.apple.finder.plist file, but since Mavericks now caches plist files, the file just gets re-created instantly after deleting it, so that doesn't work anymore.
