I must have multirow bookmarks!

more options

Since the Firefox 33 update, the "Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar Plus" addon only displays 2 rows! I MUST be able to have 5 or more rows like I did until a few days ago! Pleass help!

Chosen solution

No, uninstalling Firefox 33 beta and then installing the Firefox 32 release version shouldn't pose any problems. Unistalling Firefox doesn't do anything with the Profile folder contents [the option to remove the Profile as part of uninstalling was removed as of Firefox 32 - IIRC], and the last going backwards change which could cause an issue was with Firefox 32 passwords file structure.

Personally, I never go back a version so I'm not 100% sure, but just in case it wouldn't hurt to backup your Profile as a safety precaution. I routinely update Beta, Aurora, and Nightly as they are available [I test all three] and for each new Release I install it separately as each Release is made.

Please check the addon options: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../multirow-bookmarks-toolbarplus/ it looks like this is a feature you can set in its settings.

No, that's not the issue. Settings are fine. I have been using 5 lines on 3 computers and as soon as the version 33 updated, 3 lines were gone from all the computers. Only if I put the toolbar on the bottom of the page it shows all 5 but on the top of the page (where I need it) it shows 2 and doesn't even give me scrollbars or popout button to see the rest of the icons so I have no way of accessing them.

Firefox 33 is a beta build - it hasn't been released yet! Most add-on developers don't 'support' pre-release builds and rely upon users to report issues that are found on Beta, Aurora, and Nightly builds so that they can fix known bugs before the next version of Firefox is released. Or decide whether or not to continue developing a particular add-on.

You can report Bugs in that add-on here: http://multirowbookmarkstoolbar.com/forum

Use the latest Release version - Firefox 32, if you must have that add-on. That will get you thru the next 5 weeks or so.

I wanted to get off the beta and go to regular but I understood that this would wipe out my profile and I'd have to redo any changes I have to FF - and there are a lot. I guess I'll have to live with it.
