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 withinsections, 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
