What happened to the little house icon that took you directly to your home page on a MacBook?

Like in the browser? Or an icon in the Finder? – Wuffers Apr 30 '11 at 23:24

I think you mean the browser, but as I'm not entirely sure...:

Browser: Right-click Safari's toolbar/address bar, select Customize Toolbar, and drag the Home item to the toolbar.

Finder: Open a new Finder window, and, if necessary, navigate to your home folder. Drag the icon in the window title bar (it's called a proxy icon) to the Finder's sidebar.
