Self-Destructing Cookies add-on icon not visible
Windows 7 with all updates Firefox ver 43.0.3 Self-Destructing Cookies (SDC) add-on ver 0.4.9 Firefox set to remember history SDC is enabled and working No other add-ons enabled
Problem: SDC icon not visible
I have used SDC for a couple years and recently changed computers from XP to Win 7. The SDC icon is needed to easily change settings for each website I visit.

Enter about:config into your Firefox address bar Click the I'll be careful button Find xpinstall.signatures.required in the list Right click the preference Select Toggle until the value is false
Make sure the add-on is activated.
Type about:customizing<Enter> in the address bar. In the new window, look for the icon. When you find it, hold down the left button on it, and move it to where you want it to be. You can move any of the icons you want from here, but some icons are locked in place.
Thanks for the reply. I toggled "xpinstall.signatures.required" to false, restarted Firefox and the icon is not visible when in customize.
Does the extension show as installed and enabled on the about:addons page?
Open the Customize window and set which toolbar items to display.
- "3-bar" menu button > Customize
- 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
Try to reset this pref on the about:config page via the right-click context menu to the default value.
Close and restart Firefox to make the change effective.

I did reset "browser.uiCustomization.state"
Now, I see "Self-Destructing Cookies" in "Additional Tools and Features" of the "Customize" window but there is no icon to go with the text. I attempt to drag the text to the toolbar and the other icons do not shift as though I am not really dragging an icon.
After closing the Customize window, the SDC Icon is not displayed.

I was using the Firefox default theme. I installed another theme and now I have the SDC icon. Thanks for all the suggestions.
