Having installed Mountain Lion 10.8.3 I can not get the sidebar in Finder to display Favorites.

Finder > Preferences > Sidebar shows a number of boxes against Favorite folders, but these can not be selected

Any suggestions?

It was a known bug which has already been fixed by Apple. By running Software Update on your Mac you'll be good to go!
