Thread: "Accounts"

    A friend gave me his old mac. So, after using it for awhile, I went into accounts and changed his name to mine under the "Name" section in the "Admin" account profile.
    When I went to the log out command, it still showed his name for some reason. I logged out and upon logging back in, everything appeared as if the computer had never been used. When I would open an app, it was like opening it for the first time. All my bookmarks were gone. All the dashboard apps were gone. All the settings reverted to default.
    My question is, is there any way to go back and get all those lost settings and Firefox bookmarks and such?
