My Bookmarks Toolbar has disappered. No fix works.

Posted

I imported my bookmarks, first via Chrome and then via USB stick. All the bookmarks are there in various folders but I can't get a Bookmarks Bar to put them in. I've tried all the various fixes that I could either through Firefox support or other sites but none work. I want to make Firefox my default browser but need to have the bookmarks bar.

Type about:customizing<enter> in the address bar. Look for Show / Hide Toolbars at the bottom left.

There is also a Restore Defaults button at the bottom middle.
