Recently "updated" Firefox has no bookmark "button" - why?

Posted

Something changed in my Firefox version previously installed (may have been an update by Microsoft) and, as a result, I needed to download and re-installed the latest version. Now I no longer have a "bookmark" star OR bar indicating I even HAVE any bookmarks. (If I go to program files I can find most - if not all - of them in a folder.) But I can't bookmark any NEW pages! (I do a lot of research for articles and bookmark frequently - this is really making me work to keep track of where I've found information!)
