    Default Mac keeps returning to Default Folder

    Greetings!

    I have Default Folder 1.8 on my Quicksilver G4 867 running OS 10.2.6. I
    love what it does for Open/Save dialog boxes, but there is one
    irritating feature. If I have several apps open and quit the frontmost
    app, I always wind up in Default Folder. As far as I can tell, there is
    no reason I would EVER want to be in Default Folder except possibly to
    adjust preferences. What I would prefer, and expect, is that when I quit
    an app, I wind up back in the app that I was last using before switching
    to the one that I subsequently quit, rather than "defaulting" back to
    Default Folder.

    Any way to fix this so it works like I expect? BTW I am using LiteSwitch
    and have it set to bring all forward and to hid all background windows.
    That's the only thing I can imagine which might affect this behavior.

    You probably use DF in the wrong way somehow. DF is a PreferencePane
    after it is installed. There is no way you can end up there, because it
    is not a program. Uncheck the option to show DF in the Dock. Perhaps
    that helps.

    Unfortunately Johan, it IS an app that is loaded when the OS is starting up.
    However what you can do is to go into System prefs window, and click on the
    Log In Items icon. Then click on the button to the left of the DF application
    name, to hide the app when it is loaded.

    Of course there is still the keyboard shortcut of manually hiding programs,
    by pressing the Option/Alt key when the app is the foreground program, and
    click on the finder background pattern/picture.
