Do you have the same problem with the screens?
Hi, I am experiencing a problem with the full screen setting of my Mountain Lion. The trouble is that when I run certain apps such as Safari, Mail, Zotero or Scrivener and I open, say, the preferences window, this is automatically set in fullscreen, although it should not be. That messes all the full screen setting of the specific app. I have already got in contact with the Scrivener team, for instance, and they suggested that was a problem related to one of the apps I use to manage my windows, i.e. Rightzoom and Window Tidy. Following up this suggestion I uninstalled and restarted my laptop, but nothing has changed. I tried also to install a non-destructive installation of Mountain lion, but again without any result. I think I should be able in a someway or another to bring the system files related to the fullscreen setting back to a default condition.
I wonder if anyone has already experienced this problem or if you have any suggestion. Thanks.
