At times, when trying to open a file through various programs or to place a file in a program such as Photoshop or as an attachment to an email, I am unable to view any of the subfolders or files on my hard drive when the "Open" or "Place" pop up windows come up. I will see the list of "Favorites" on the left side of the pop up window, but when I click on any of those nothing happens.
I've had this problem with multiple (but not all) programs installed on my hard drive and with online email programs such as Yahoo, that won't let me select files to attach to messages.
Sound familiar to anyone? Any ideas for how to remedy this? The good old-fashioned restart did nothing and I've been unable to find any preference setting that would explain it.
If it matters, I'm using a MacBook Pro with 10.7.5
Thanks very much!

Are you clicking the little arrow next to the open or save as box?

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
