One my favorite OS X features is creating folders through the "Save As..." dialog. But recently I've run into an issue. When I try to browse to folders recently created using the "Save As..." dialog, they are not visible in the Finder. Mysteriously, they do appear in applications' "Open" and "Save As..." dialogs. I have to relaunch the Finder (I used
killall Finder in the Terminal) to get the folders to show up. When they appear, they don't disappear again, and the contents I saved are there and are intact.
How can I restore the Finder's ability to see all newly created folders as soon as they appear in the file system?
One note: I've installed Hazel and Dropbox, which may have disturbed some Finder .plist file somewhere. Hazel is no longer installed, but Dropbox is.
