I am using a MacBookPro and use the three-finger swipe gesture to move between desktops.

However, this feature seems to stop working randomly. Interestingly though, when this happens, I am still able to switch to another desktop by tabing to an application that's open in another workspace. But when I do that, I am automatically brought back to the workspace that I was on.

This is a really weird error. How can I fix this?

Turns out that this is another distinct symptom of Dock glitching every now and again (as is the loss of and ). The fix is simple: kill the Dock process (it restarts automatically) by doing

killall Dock

on the terminal (terminal.app can be found using spotlight; it's in /Applications)
