Ok, so I posted this over on the Apple support forums, and although one guy was helpful I didn't get my problem solved. So basically, as the thread title suggests, this is how my bookmarks bar looks: As you see, where my bookmarks are, it's light grey. This may seem trivial, but it's bugging the ***** out of me lol. It happened recently [~week or two] ago when I was on Leopard. When I upgraded to SL, I hoped the issue would resolve itself, but it carried over. I also tried reinstalling Safari to see if that would work, but it didn't. Also, I logged into my Guest account to see if it happened there too, but nope. Its only my account, so it's something user specific..I just have no idea what. Any ideas?? I'm stumped.
