I have a few keyboard shortcuts set up to run a script that opens folders in the current finder window through the following AppleScript:
tell application "Finder" activate set target of Finder window 1 to folder "Macintosh HD:Users:David:Downloads:Dropbox" end tell
This script worked flawlessly until Mavericks. Now my windows open and a weird grey bar appears, and the folder is displaced downward in the window. I’ve attached a screenshot. Furthermore, the mouse clicks are misalligned, so that if for example I tried to click the Photos folder in the attached screenshot, it would select the Public folder instead.
This behavior and weird bar go away if I open folder, go up a folder in the tree, or change finder views (this only seems to be a problem when opening folders in the list view).
I’m guessing this has something to do with Maverick’s built-in tab bar getting in the way?
