My google search bar disappears every time i close out of firefox.

Posted

I am running the latest beta version (45.0b1) and whenever i close out of firefox the search bar is missing and i have to go into the customization menu and add it back to my menu bar. All my bookmarks remain, and all the changes i initially made to the menu are there, but the search bar keeps getting removed. When i updated to the latest beta version everything was fine. Now all of a sudden my search bar disappears every time i open a new session.

Note: Some software, like Advanced SystemCare with Surfing Protection, can protect files in the Firefox profile folder against changes. If you have such software then check the settings or uninstall this software.
