    After installing the system update last night, my Library has disappeared from my sidebar and my user Library has disappeared from my username folder.

    How do I bring both back? This "feature" is incredibly annoying that only serves to handicap me and waste my time.

    Your Library folders are hidden by default in Lion and later. To get to your /Library or /Users/yourusername/Library (also known as the ~/Library) folders in Lion and later:
    • Launch Finder and click Go > Go to Folder and type: /Library or ~/Library
    • Hold the Option key while clicking the Go menu item, which reveals your ~/Library folder in the menu.
    • Make it permanently visible in Finder by entering the following command in Terminal, then press the Enter key:
      chflags nohidden ~/Library​
    • 18 ways to view the ~/Library folder in Lion

    It keeps resetting the hidden flag after major updates, so you have to do it again later.. I hate it.
