comment Windows keep spontaneously moving from workspace to workspace in Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks)
If it were happening to me I might try deleting plist files for all affected apps, or even creating a new profile, logging in AS that profile and then using the computer for a day or three to see if the same behavior occurs. If not, move my stuff to the new profile, delete the old one and call it fixed.

Yes it is usually per app, you are correct. Are there any multiple monitors in play here? Or is this a single monitor? How many work spaces (desktops) are in play as well?

comment Can not connect to internet via wifi
Have you rebooted the wifi access point/router to see if that might help? This would be my first attempt at fixing a wonky wifi connection. Do other devices connect and work on the wifi?

comment 10/100Mbps router overwhelmed by Gigabit switch & its devices?
I agree with Frank here. I have a situation almost identical to yours, I installed a Gig switch so I too could increase the transfer speeds between my PC and my Drobo. I use Cat5e as well, and of course only achieve speeds of about 250 - 300 Mbps, but it is still better than 100Mbps. That aside, I do not experience any slow downs out to the web, that traffic should still run at the full speed capable of the router. One thing I might try, since this occured when you installed the switch, try removing it and see if the performance you are used to returns. If not, maybe coincidence with ISP?
