Terminal MIA

when I launch Terminal it appears at the bottom of the screen under the dock. There's nothing to drag to move it up. If I open a new window it opens a white window with no menubar or anything. I cannot type in it or move it, its just a white box.

Or try changing the monitor to a higher resolution. This should move all the windows up so you should then be able to grab the Terminal window to move it even higher. Then change back to the original resolution.

being behind the doc is not the issue...since I can hide the doc. Its just that when i launch Terminal I get a white box. No header bar. No resize bar at bottom. No open, close or minimize buttons. Nothing. Just a white box. When I click in it and start typing, nothing appears. Its like Terminal is just fscked.

Have you disabled a bunch of fonts lately? There is an issue with the Terminal window acting crazy after you disable a certain font that it needs.

I recently install Font Explorer and it moved all unnecessary fonts out of my fonts folder. However, it gives you the option to REACTIVATE those once they are moved. So i did. So technically nothing is missing. And I would think that if an Apple application REQUIRES a single font to function at even the most basic level, it should NOT be able to be disabled. Right?

on that...does anyone happen to know what font it is that Terminal cannot live without?

I found this article on Apple's site, however, now that I reread your description of the problem, this might not be what you are talking about since you said you can't see ANY buttons.

Interestingly enough. In FontExplorer, Monaco appears as an unmodifiable font. Meaning I can neither disable nor enable it. It is enabled by default and locked and i cannot change it. So thats not the issue. Although i have had THAT problem before...on a different machine.
