Where do I find the library icon to switch on my bookmarks toolbar which has disappeared since I updated Firefox?

Posted

Hi! I also could no longer see my bookmarks toolbar after recently updating Firefox. I see one of the solutions is to his the library icon in the Firefox "toolbar" but I can't seem to find it. Am I totally blind as it seems it should be obvious but I really am not sure where it is? Did it disappear too? Please help! Thanks a bunch!

Your Firefox identified itself as version 50. The "Library" button was introduced around Firefox 57. Can you update?

Hi, Mouse to the top of the browser to a empty spot and Right Click then Check Menu Bar.

I suggest do this ASAP as it is updating :

You should've been switched to the Extended Release Version a year ago. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/switch-to-firefox-extended-support-release-esr

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

Thank you so much! I didn't realize my version was so ancient! The update solved everything. Whatever auto update function I had on my MacBook was not getting me up and going so I simply downloaded a new version and voila everything looks great.
