So many little irritations that I will not go into them all. I sure wasn't aware that I would loose all of my mailboxes. I used them to store emails related to a given subject that I wanted to keep. I suppose I was naieve to think they were safe there. Can't retrieve anything because- again I was unaware that Time Machine would be erased and start new from the moment of installing Mountain Lion.
A couple of little irritations. 1. Can't get the mouse to work right. Really tough to highlite and almost impossible to grab and move a window without it immediately dissappearing into the dock - usually takes several tries just to grab and move a window. I have made many changes to the mouse in Preferences with only slight improvement. Other things seem like ML goes backwards. For example with SL the contents of a folder could be resized by a simple slider at the bottome of the window. Now I have to go to preferences and resize if I want to enlarge or shrink. What a genious move that was. Also the same folder in SL would show you how many items were in the folder. ML gives no info. There is more but suffice it to say IMO it is a lousy upgrade.

Incidently there is no icon size slider bar in the status bar on my computer. Maybe I just don't know how to enable it. In SL it was always there - I don't remember ever doing anything to enable it.
Show or hide the status bar has been an option in the Finder "View" menu for a very long time. You may have forgotten that it is there. Enable it from that menu & you should see the window item count & available space on the HD, just as with Snow Leopard. And if you are in Finder's Icon view, you should also see the icon size slider, just as with Snow Leopard.
In fact, showing/hiding the status bar now has a keyboard shortcut that it did not in Snow Leopard: press command & the forward slash ("/") key to toggle it on & off.
