Quicksilver Search Invisible until relaunch or open another Quicksilver Window #1170

Since Lion, and now in Mountain Lion, the Quicksilver Search Window is invisible after starting up a computer (I have Quicksilver enable to launch on startup), even when invoking the key command to bring it to the front (for me it's Control+Space). In order to get it to show again I have to go to the menu item and click About Quicksilver, or I relaunch Quicksilver. I keep thinking this will get fixed in an update and it never does, it's been happening for almost two years for me. I also thought it was my computer, but I now have 4 computers showing this behaviour (One new MacBook Pro and 3 New MacPro towers). All of them are on Mountain Lion here.

This sounds like #1027/#1038, or maybe #498/#447/#411. In any case, it's been reported. :-)

Go to your Login Items in System Preferences. Make sure the checkbox under “Hide” is off for Quicksilver. If it already is, try removing it and adding it again.

Maybe you should uncheck this checkbox when installing your app?
