My Finder's file details header looks weird.

enter image description here

It looks translucent and not clickable :( I used many command-line tools on this Temp folder, so I could be happen from accidental deletion of some system file. But I can't figure out what actually happen in there.

How can I fix this?

You used View » Arrange By or a ctrl++[number] shortcut. It's new in Lion. Remove it by selecting View » Arrange By » None (or pressing ctrl++0).

Hold down while opening the View menu to get the older Sort By… menu, or press ctrl+++[number] instead.
