I've lost all of my settings in literally every application.

Its like my MacBook reset itself. I still have all my information, but I did loose a couple programs (via System Preference pane).

What happened? Everything just went bogus. I feel like doing a clean install of the OS. But, the only thing that is stopping me is not having a mouse.

Did you by any chance change the name of your home folder, that is the name next to the house icon on the left hand side of finder?

Yes.


I just restarted thinking that might change everything back. Nothing happened.

I just saw that I lost all my documents as well as widgets.

I just right clicked and renamed it. Thought that wouldn't do anything. :(

Okay. I am now missing all my Firefox settings and such.


Is there a way to change profiles in Firefox? I know you can do it on Windows...

And, can I delete that new user that I accidentally made?

Did you look at the link I sent you? That instructs you as to how to put everything back the way it was.

Now, I have another problem.

My Finger dock icon is stuck on my desktop. I'm having a bad day. Please help. Its like I can't grab it or anything.
I'm currently going to bed, so I will read this post first thing tomorrow.

Thanks.

It looks like the dock just needs to be reset, use Activity Monitor (located in Applications > Utilities) to quit it. It should automatically relaunch without the stuck Finder icon.
