You can tap the Alt key or press the F10 key to show the hidden Menu Bar temporarily.

  • View -> Toolbars

Also make sure that you aren't in Full Screen mode (press F11 to toggle).

You are running a very, very old Firefox version - as you have a lot of plugins, you will need an ESR version, which you can download from here :

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/

If you still don't see the 3-bar menu button : please let us know.


Your system details show two versions of Shockwave Flash, which can cause major problems. So, please uninstall them .

Uninstaller : https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html

Then re-install the latest version, which is 27.0.0.187 You can download te latest version from here : https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Note : some 'extras' may be offered in the download.

Do you mean that you do not see any bookmarks in the Bookmarks Manager (Library)?

If that is the case then see if there are backups available.

  • Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks -> Import & Backup -> Restore

You can check if you have an "Old Firefox Data" folder on the desktop in case the Refresh feature in Firefox has been used and a new profile has been created.


You can add the "Bookmarks Menu" button that shows the bookmarks in a drop-down list to the Navigation Toolbar via these steps:

  • click the bookshelf 57 library icon icon on the Navigation Toolbar or alternatively use the Library menu in the "3-bar" Firefox menu button New Fx Menu drop-down list
  • click Bookmarks
  • click "Bookmarking Tools", then click "Add Bookmarks Menu to Toolbar"
The Bookmark Menu button Bookmark Menu icon (star on tray) should appear on the Navigation Toolbar.

You can also drag the Bookmarks Menu button from the Customize palette to the Navigation Toolbar
