This one has bothered me for a long time, ever since the Mavericks update in October, I think.
I use the column view in Finder (the third view), and I arrange items by kinds while sorting them by names. With TotalFinder on, quite often when I navigate to a certain directory, the items in that directory are arranged but not correctly sorted (they essentially appear in random order—no noticeable patterns). The order will be corrected if I leave that directory (by navigating to the directory above/below it, or navigating back a level) and re-enter it. I tried to reproduce this behavior with TotalFinder off, but didn’t see it with Apple’s native Finder.
So what’s the problem? Any ideas? Thanks.
