    It seems like only the ones on my SD card disappear.

    :thinking:

    I put them back twice and now they disappeared again.

    :mad:

    This isn't related to the update, I had this all the time on FroYo.

    Apps that I moved to the SD card would either disappear, or be replaced with the generic gear icon.
    You can fight it and replace them, or just reboot the phone and they come back.

    I typically noticed this when I would connect the phone to my PC in USB file transfer mode to do things like add music to the SD card.

    If I'm not mistaken, you can't use any widgets for apps moved to the SD card.

    They do not come back after rebooting. I think it is related to the update, I never had this problem before. Right after the update it started happening. I had some stuff on the SD card and the icons never disappeared. I guess I will just move my main apps to the phone. Thanks.

    Well, I've had this issue since I started moving apps to my SD card back in April... that was long before the update.
    Try moving the apps back to the phone's memory and see if that does not stop it.
