Unexpected Tab behavior



I’ve been having this issue with sticky and unresponsive tab behavior lately. Only happens when physically clicking back and forth between tabs, not taping on them in the same fashion. Tabs will stick, won’t close, or will create weird spaces in the bar. Sometimes will stick to the cursor but that is hard to reproduce.

Not sure if Bettertouchtool is to blame, harder to reproduce with it disabled but is has happened with it disabled.

Running TotalFinder 1.10.0 but have experienced it with previous versions.
MacBook Pro 2017, 10.12.6 Sierra

Video of behavior:


Thanks for the video. Looks like the tabs code is throwing exceptions and does not finish its work. Do you see any errors in Console.app?


i am admittedly pretty green when it comes to Console, but it did throw this error related to Finder:

it may be totally unrelated, so i apologize


This might be related. Thanks for the clue. Seems like an edge case in layouting some views. I just have to find a way how to reproduce it.


i appreciate you looking into this, let me know if there’s anything else that i can do to assist!


Hello - just to update you, this appears to have been fixed in the latest High Sierra Beta. It’s early so I’m not 100% sure but I’ll update you if it returns.


this behavior has returned.

TotalFinder 1.10.2
High Sierra Public Beta 10.13


I have a very similar issue on MacOS Sierra. In order to reproduce, just click on tabs back and forth. Eventually, it will show strange tab behavior.

The console output shows this:

I have noticed that sometimes the tab does not change when I click on another tab. I found that clicking on the desktop and then clicking on the new tab will work.
