    Hey fellow mac rumors,
    Booting my macbookpro up this am resorted in having the original background,dock settings etc and loosing my firefox favourites.
    Although no important information has been lost it is very annoying and has happened in the past.Anyone know why or how i can get my settings back?

    Did you happen to rename your Home folder? The one that is called the same as your username? Renaming it back will restore your settings.
