    This article covers other problems caused by a corrupt localstore.rdf file, not just toolbars being reset. See Changes to toolbars and window sizes are not saved which is archived ... but it was the solution to this recent question:

    I see in http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode#Safe_Mode_options the "Reset toolbars and controls" option is described like this: Reset toolbars and controls (Firefox, Thunderbird) or Reset toolbars and window sizes (SeaMonkey) - Removes any toolbar customizations you may have made via the "Customize Toolbar" dialog. Also restores default window size/position and tree sort order and resolves various localstore corruption issues .

    I think we should rename this article to something like,
    "Toolbar changes or window settings are not saved"
    ... and then redirect Changes to toolbars and window sizes are not saved to this article.

    In any case, I think that Changes to toolbars and window sizes are not saved should be unarchived and redirected here.
