    Yes there is but your problem is not a bug. There are millions and millions of others who are not having any problems whatsoever with ML. The problem is almost positively an issue with your particular system.

    Try the quick & easy first...

     

    Go to your Finder "Go" menu hold the option key and choose Library. Then go to Preferences folder and trash these files:

    com.apple.finder.plist

    com.apple.sidebarlists.plist

     

    Then, restart, or log out and in again.

    (You will have to reset a few finder prefs the way you like them.)
