Bookmarks are still there if I use the menu, but do not display on the bookmark toolbar. I have tried all the suggested solutions. I have restarted Firefox. I have turned the bookmarks toolbar on and off. Nothing has worked. Also, if I add a new bookmark to the toolbar, it does not display. I cannot drag a bookmarklet to the toolbar.

Chosen solution

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

  • "3-bar" menu button > Customize > Show/Hide Toolbars
  • View > Toolbars
    You can 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" 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 to the Customize window to the Bookmarks Toolbar
  • if missing items are in the Customize palette then drag them back from the Customize window to the toolbar
  • if you do not see an item on a toolbar and in the Customize palette then click the Restore Defaults button in the Customize palette window to restore the default toolbar set.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database (bookmarks and history) in the Firefox profile folder.
