I can't add a bookmark to my bookmark toolbar

Posted

I recently had to do a full reset to Firefox. I added on the Classic Theme Restorer, like I did before, except now I can't add a bookmark to the toolbar (where you can drag and drop a web page in the area right below the address bar). I have the bookmarks toolbar option checked and there's a bookmarks menu there, but when I click on it, it shows all my bookmarks, which has lists Bookmarks Toolbar with all the bookmarks I had on my toolbar before I had to reset Firefox. Someone please help me. I feel like I've tried everything - playing with the options, googling the problem - and I'm at a loss. It's really frustrating.

Make sure that toolbars like the "Bookmarks Toolbar" are visible.

  • "3-bar" Firefox menu button > Customize > Show/Hide Toolbars
  • View > Toolbars
    Tap the Alt key or press F10 to show the Menu Bar
  • Right-click empty toolbar area

Open the Customize window and set which toolbar items to display.

  • "3-bar" Firefox menu button > Customize
  • check that "Bookmarks Toolbar items" is on the Bookmarks Toolbar
  • if "Bookmarks Toolbar items" is not on the Bookmarks Toolbar then drag it back from the Customize palette into the Customize window to the Bookmarks Toolbar
  • if missing items are in the Customize palette then drag them back from the Customize window on the toolbar
  • if you do not see an item on a toolbar and in the Customize palette then click the "Restore Defaults" button to restore the default toolbar setup

You should be able to drag and drop into a space between existing bookmarks on the toolbar, or onto a folder drop-down, or onto the overflow list if you have more than will fit. I find it easiest to drag the site icon (globe or padlock, depending on whether it is a regular or secure site) and drop that.
