the "movies" folder icon in my home folder was somehow mysteriously changed to look like the preview app icon. (what the heck?!) i have my home folder on the dock for quick reference and when i click and hold on that, the little icon looks correct, but the big one in the normal finder window is wrong. also, when viewing my home folder in list mode or column mode, the icon is something indiscernible. how can i fix this? and could i actually apply a different icon to other folders as well once i get this back to normal? that might be fun. thanks.

i have had that problem before. its just a matter of repairing permissions and everything will be sorted out!

oh well i already repaired permissions and it didn't seem to work. i think i'll repair them again and try relaunching finder. haven't tried that yet ...... that did it. so repairing permissions may or may not have done anything, but relaunching the finder was the ticket.
