TeXShop doesn't seem to honor the option to not hide a file's .tex extension, always leaving it off when I save a new file. TeXShop always seems to save files as plain text files rather than as TeX files. I've had these problems for well over a year. Version 3.12 does seem to fix the issue I've had with not being able to clear previously opened files from application expose even though I can clear the File -> Open Recent menu entries.

1)As far as the Icon problem is concerned... have you used Onyx (the version for your OS) to rebuild the LaunchServices database? That usually clears up that problem although a reboot directly afterwards may help (how I dislike saying things like that!).

2)Where are you not seeing the .tex extension? If in Finder windows please make sure you check the Finder->Preferences->Advanced->Show all filename extensions option.

3)If you are using OS X 10.8 make sure you have the Close windows when quitting an application option checked in System Preferences->General. If the file is an unsaved file it will open automatically no matter what your setting. Under OS X 10.7 the option is stated in a different manner but it's there. PS: I'm not sure what you mean by ``application expose''.

Good Luck,
