That could mean the problem is #3 if you have Firefox set to Restore Previous Session automatically at startup. You can use the link in the earlier reply to see more on that.

Hi, I think you mean what Firefox calls the Bookmarks Toolbar. Is the problem:

(1) The bar is not there at all, ever (2) The bar is there, but it's blank (3) The bar appears for a moment at startup but then vanishes (4) Something else? Something inside your home page itself??

For #1:

To turn a missing Bookmarks Toolbar back on, you can use one of these methods to show the toolbar list and select it there:

  • right-click (on Mac Ctrl+click) a blank spot on the tab bar (or the "+" button)
  • (menu bar) View > Toolbars
    On Windows, tap the Alt key to activate the menu bar temporarily.
  • in Customize mode > Toolbars button (see: Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars)

To turn on the Bookmarks Toolbar, Menu Bar, or other bars, click it on the list. Does that work?

For #2:

Please use the Restore Defaults button at the bottom of the Customize panel. This article will get you there: Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars.

For #3:

This seems to be related to the automatic session restore features and strikes some users randomly. More advice if it seems relevant. Or check out: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1255289

Thanks for your help, the problem is (1)

I already tried to turn back on this toolbar with #1 but it's not working.

The toolbar content is there if i go into the Bookmarks menu (i can see what is called in french the "barre personnelle", or customised bar) but checking on or off the option when i right click on a blank space has no effect at all.
