    Yes it seems to be a bug.  Please file a bug report or submit feedback.

     

    Relaunching Finder does not seem to fix it.

     

    Reboot should sort the issue.

     

    I have found no other fix through terminal.

    reboot didn't fix it, but i rebooted into safe mode and fixed permissions. that fixed the problem for me.

    Yes, good one Yoda_Oz.  I had to go that route once myself. 

     

    This has happened to me more than once so far.

     

    The last time what set off the bug,  was when I was using terminal to make hidden files visible.

    You Finder window appears to be modified. Total Finder? Is it supported under you current operating system? Perhaps this is the issue?

    It just happen to me:

     

    - day before the problem, some icons on safari shows some tv static like image after resume from sleep. and have hang twice

    - then icon is missing after reboot

    - if create a new account, it works without problem

    - if I delete a old problem account and recreate it (without using the old home folder), problem still exists. So problem is not caused by any corrupted files inside home folder

    - fix premission not work

     

    Finally boot from recovery and reinstall macosx.  It fixed all problem, data is still there and no need to reinstall every apps.
