I have no idea how this happened. I wasn't fooling around with anything, I just opened up Finder and now it's not showing in the favorites tab on the left. When I go to "Go" in the menu bar "All My Files" is also greyed out. I checked in preferences and it's still checked to show upon opening Finder and it's still checked to show in the Favorites section :confused:

This Mavericks update is turning out to be quite the drag...

What happens if you uncheck it and check it again? Strange bug.

I logged out and checked to see if the Guest account was affected, it was working fine there. I logged back into my account and it was now showing up in Finder, however it was still missing from the side panel. I went into preferences and it was unchecked somehow, I checked it back and now everything is working but yeah this is definitely a bug.

It's hard to believe this is the GM release, I'm already uncovering so many things wrong

You may click HIDE button on the right of FAVOURITE?

In my case, I wrongly clicked the Hide button on the right hand side of FAVOURITE. This function does not show up until you drag the mouse on that position. That's why I could not figure out for a while why all my favourite folders disappear in one day. Now it showed up when I drag the mouse on the Show button.
Not sure is that your case?

Sup. I managed to solve this problem by taking out my files from time machine. Lucky guess for the hide thing too, eh?
