Problem still unresolved... Cor-el as per my first post; I'm running beta and Pocket is not visible under the customise tab.

Fred, if it was already visible on the toolbar I wouldnt be asking for help.

Type about:config<enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the Be Careful button. At the top of the screen is a search bar. Type pocket

browser.pocket.enabled = true

browser.pocket.useLocaleList = true

Try to click the Restore Defaults button in the Customize palette to restore the default toolbar setup.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window

Do you see the pocket-button in the value of the browser.uiCustomization.state pref?

You can open the Scratchpad (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer) and paste the value of the pref in the text area. Click the "Pretty Print" button to format the content for readability.

You can open the Browser Console (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer). Paste the JavaScript code in the command line and press the Enter key to run the code.

  • Toggle the devtools.chrome.enabled pref on the about:config page to true to enable the command line
pb = document.querySelector("#pocket-button");
pb.parentNode.id

Does this come up with any result?

Thanks for the reply.

I'm not sure if I followed what you said.. I enabled commands in the Browser console and pasted

pb = document.querySelector("#pocket-button");
pb.parentNode.id

it returned the error: "TypeError: impl is null1 network-monitor.js:97:6"

I'm not sure where I'm looking/doing in regards to 'browser.uiCustomization.state pref'.

If you enabled the command line in the devtools then you have found the about:config page. The browser.uiCustomization.state is another pref that you can find on this page.

  • about:config?filter=browser.uiCustomization.state

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.

Make sure that the browser window is selected when you open the Browser Console (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer) to run the code.
