Disabled Go Menu Items

For some time now my Go menu has looked like this:


I have no idea why the "iDisk" and "Network" menu items are disabled. My permissions are correct. My iDisk is permanently mounted and synchronized, but it'd be nice to be able to choose "Someone Else's Public Folder" (or whatever it's called). What gives? How can this be fixed? I'm not running any software that should affect this, and searches for "dimmed go menu items Mac OS X" turn up nothing helpful.

Any ideas?

  1. I had the same thing happen to me some time ago. Eventually I just gave up (after 10 minutes of angry starring at the greyed-out menu). When, some time after, I stumbled upon the same link to the same public iDisk I wanted to connect to, the menus worked.

    I have no idea what I did to make them work, though.

  2. I've seen that too. I have no idea what causes it, but if you force quit the Finder and re-launch it, you'll get the menu items back.

  3. My idisk option looks fine, but after clicked it.... console told me things like this:

    webdavd[474]: http_mount: WebDAV protocol not supported

    webdavd[474]: could not be mounted

    I have to use "connect to server" option, and webdav works again.

  4. Mine are pretty much disabled any and every time I look, IIRC.

  5. And I just want to remove any and all traces of iDisk and .Mac from my systems... what a pain .Mac is.

  6. That happens to me regularly (iBook G3 800). I have to relaunch the Finder to fix it. I haven't been able to figure out the cause.

  7. The 10.3.3 update seems to have fixed this on my computer.
