    For no known reason, I started seeing an error about only apple apps can access something.. I don't know what it was anymore because of reasons you'll see in a second.

    icloud/imessage decided to log off, and I get the "keychain login cannot be found" error that you can find all over the !@#!@#1 internet dating back years with no fix ever said.

    I restarted and reset PRAM which was a possible solution to things, but when I got back on, I've found that icloud/imessage STILL won't log in, various preference files seem to be gone for different programs, Tabs Mix preferences in firefox, and the firefox history is gone (which is why I can't recall the error above)..

    I was just finishing re-setting up this mac with a fresh install after a problem last week. I'm waiting on a new drive, so there's no backup to revert to right now..

    I hope someone has an answer or solution to this.

    Emptying the keychain folder and restarting seems to have fixed it for now. I've seen this in the past and it didn't, but it did this time.

    i swear since El Capitain I've just had all sorts of this niggling errors.
