Firefox "presents" totally different on my PC than on the Mac - I like Mac better. How do I adjust the appearance of Firefox?

Posted

On Mac, I see Firefox, File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Window, and Help up above the line of Tabs on the left.

At the same level on the right I see time and date, a search function, and some other stuff related to the laptop.

NONE of that appears on my desktop PC.

Furthermore, just below the line for the URL, back arrow, etc. appears the first 8 or 9 sites in my Bookmark Toolbar, as well as a symbol (>>) for pulling down the Toolbar so I can choose a site.

THOSE things aren't on the display of Firefox on my desktop.

What gives?

Hi, mouse to the top of the Browser and Right Click then Click Menu Bar and Bookmarks Toolbar. Done. You can right click in the Bookmarks Toolbar and create Subject Folders or just keep adding and the will over flow off the right end.

In the Bookmarks Menu you will find Bookmarks Toolbar folder you can add stuff that way also.

Each install over top will create a new Bookmarks Toolbar and unhook the old one, just drag to the new one.

As for Mac - Windows the Menus are different so can not do anything about that.

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.
