Don't know what's causing the problem but you may be able to deal with it without closing and re-opening TeXShop. The next time it happens try to click on the ``lozenge'' on the upper right corner of the window (this will remove the toolbar) and then click on it again (to open the toolbar again).

There are other reports of this behavior but I haven't been able to make any sense of what is happening to cause this.

Just to be sure... what are your versions of the OS, TeXShop and the hardware you are using (mainly Intel or PPC)?

Good Luck,
