      Summary

      Filemaker (top) menus are from the previous app (for example OS X "Mail")

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11

      Operating system version

      10.7.5

      Description of the issue

      Filemaker is actively in-use, but the (top screen; OSX) menus are the last app (for example OS X "Mail" or "Safari").

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Only happens on startup.  I don't know a way to consistently reproduce this error.

      Expected result

      "Filemaker" menus:       File    Edit    View    Insert    Format    Records     (etc)

      Actual result

      "OS X Mail" menus:      Mail   File   Edit     View    Mailbox    Message  (etc)

      or if the last app before starting Filemaker was Safari, then it shows Safari menus.  I can be working in Filemaker, adding, editing records, then only discover the error when I go to the menus at top for some filemaker function and notice that it only has "Mail" functions.

      Workaround

      Quit Filemaker, re-open
      or Relaunch the Finder

      Sometimes I wonder if I just need to "wait".
