  • "Just ran into a client who has a sticky cursor in the Finder on Lion. Clicking and dragging, or double clicking a folder or file in the finder, the object clicked/dragged won't 'let go'. Command-Option-P-R doesn't work. Reinstalling the latest Combo updater 10.7.4 doesn't resolve the issue. Running Applejack didn't solve the issue. Repairing permissions did not solve the issue. Forcing Finder to reload got rid of the stuck file or folder but immediately on trying to open, move, drag a file or folder the problem is still there. Booting into other accounts on the MacBook Pro doesn't solve the issue; the issue remains in all accounts. Booting into Safe Mode *does* solve the problem, so it is some plug-in, some extension, some *thing*. But for the life of me I can't find anything. Three hours struggling to find the source of this." MacInTouch 8:15 AM

I have the same issue with Lightroom." MacInTouch 8:13 AM
