In OS X 10.6, the sidebar had the sections ordered:
This worked very well for me, since I use the devices section most often. However, in Lion, apple has arbitrarily reordered the sidebar to have "Favorites" on top.
Is there any way to change this back? I don't know why it was changed at all. While you can move items around *within*sections, you cannot drag the sections themselves.
Also, is there any way to restore the old icons? Previously, I could use color-cues for fast navigation (Ex: Downloads is green, Desktop is purple, HomeDir is white). Now, I have to stop and actually read the labels every time I use the sidebar
