I mean right.

Nope... as I said, it's unexplainable! But I will try again.
Normally, when you are uploading files, or syncronising, you get a window with a "status bar" showing that activity is occuring between the local machine and the server. This window is now only a thin bar, only a few pixels thin. I cannot see the status bar or anything inside of it. When files are done uploading it goes away, just like the status window normally would. When syncronising, the same thing occurs until the check of newer files is done, then the window showing which files will be uploaded appears as normal. Then when I hit okay, the thin bar appears in place of the status bar. Let me get a screenshot.
Anyone see the screenshot? I'm telling you Dreamweaver sucks on the Mac... Not to mention Macs themselves.....
Anyone got any ideas? I can't work like this.
I have no idea why you are seeing that. As far as I can recall, no one
else has reported that particular problem. I assume that DW calls some
system routines to create that box. Have you installed any
OS-enhancement programs or anything else that might change how windows,
scrollbars and the like are rendered?
If not, the only suggestion I have is pretty drastic: reinstall DW. Make
sure to export all of your site definitions first, so you can import
them once you have reinstalled. Before reinstalling, track down any
DW-related-documents you can find by doing a finder search on
"Dreamweaver" and delete them.

I was afraid of that. Well, is there a way to export all sites, rather than one-by-one?
As James mentioned, this isn't a known issue, but here are some things
you can try that before doing a full uninstall of DW.
1. Try recreating the Prefs file first. Rename your original one
Dreamweaver 8 Prefs OLD
Users > username > Library > Preferences > Dreamweaver 8 Prefs
2. If that doesn't solve it, then try recreating the DW user config
folder. Rename your original one Dreamweaver 8 OLD:
Users > username > Library > Application Support > Macromedia >
3. If that doesn't solve it, then try doing a full
uninstall/reinstall of DW as described here:
Uninstalling Studio 8 applications on Macintosh OS X

Thanks David. So when I quit DW and rename those files, it should recreate new ones when I open DW again?
