  1. I’ve had Mail open up on its’ own a few times. What bugs me is when I turn on my MacBook Pro and half the folder icons on the left side of the screen are now on the right side. Very annoying.

          1. Yeah, the operating system automatically puts hard drive icons and other stuff starting in the upper right hand corner, but I’ve always put my often accessed items on the right side since OS 8. If I want it there it should stay there; I haven’t had this occur before Lion. You don’t seem to be as knowledgeable as you want to appear.

  2. Everyone having good luck with the update? 10.7.4 took me down. Worked with apple support, was instructed to re install Lion.. Doing it now. Might not be Apples fault could be a 3rd party program zapping me.

    1. UPDATE… It was my fault the update zapped me. I had Safari Developer Preview installed. The Update freaked out about that. I reinstalled OSX LION and the applied all updates and all is cool. Didn’t mean to scare anyone off from the update. Totally my fault.
