I am new to TotalFinder, having recently switched from PathFinder. TotalFinder is awesome!
The only problem I notice is that when Visor is enabled, a Finder window flashes up on my screen whenever a window minimises, or an OS X alert dialogue window is displayed. The flash is too quick for me to get a good look at it, but it does look like a Finder window.
It kind of seems as if Visor mode creates a hidden Finder window (which only gets displayed when I double-tap Cmd) but perhaps the minimise animation in OS X somehow causes the Finder to unhide and re-hide the hidden TotalFinder Visor. It doesn’t affect the functionality of the Finder or TotalFinder Visor, but it is quite jarring to see a window flash up on your screen as I work.
If no-one else notices these window flashes, could there be an issue with the video card on my MacBook Pro? It happens for me on the MBP’s Retina display, and external non-retina monitors. My system is a Late 2013 13" MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz i5 with 16 GB RAM running OS X 10.9.1, and a Intel Iris 1024 MB video card.
Any suggestions to help get rid of these flashes would be very welcome. For now, I just disable Visor, but I would like to be able to use it again soon.
