I used to have the star on the right side of my header at the top of the page. Somehow it disappeared and I am unable to restore it. (I still have the Bookmarks drop down in the Menu Bar, that is not what I am missing.)

Been through the exact same runaround as the original poster, very confusing and annoying.

So the specific solution is a three-step process:

1. HIDE THE MENU bar by un-checking it in "View"--this gives you the orange Firefox button. NOW you will automatically also be seeing our beloved Bookmarks drop-down on the right of the search box again! Yay!

2. Think to yourelf: Why can't I have both the Menu bar (with "Bookmarks" in it) AND the bookmarks dropdown on the Navigation bar? WHY?? Redundancy is MY CHOICE if I want it. And I do. User should be allowed to choose features on Nav bar independently of what's on other bars. (Obviously.) Programmers should not be allowed to make overriding choices for users about these things. Programmers are terrible at UI design and should be kept out of it aggressively. A separate team should do the UI design, and protect it from programmers.

3. Use the feedback links to tell the "clever" Firefox re-designers to PLEASE LEAVE THE CONTROL INTERFACE ALONE. When a billion people get used to things being a certain way, and they more or less like it that way, and you change it, that means that a billion people will experience a billion hours of frustration and anxiety trying to figure out what the f happened to their trusted, well-liked button or menu. You do not have the right to inflict this suffering--leave it alone. The UI belongs to the users--NOT to the programmers. If it's not broke, DON'T FIX IT!

I am missing the star icon to the right of my Home icon on the right side of the upper area of Firefox. (The Home icon looks like a house. The bookmarks icon was the Star icon to the right of the Home icon.)

on the menu bar, click "View", select "Toolbars", and then select "Bookamarks Toolbar"

That does not give the Star icon to the right of the Home icon. That only give the menu bar with the Most Visited, Customize Links, etc.

I am missing the Star on the right side of the screen, that when selected provides the Bookmarks dropdown on the right side.

In fact, when I right-click the upper area and select Customize, the Star icon appears. But, when I select Done, it disappears again.

You only see the Bookmarks Menu button if the menu bar with the bookmarks menu is hidden and the orange Firefox button is shown.

If the Bookmarks Toolbar is displayed then you see the Bookmarks Menu button on that toolbar.

Thanks very much. It seemed like I tried that, but each time I did it, the damn drop down on the right disappeared.
