I've put in reader view and ensured it's an article, but on both PC and android the menu bar just doesn't display the headphones. There are also other address bar icons missing such as bookmark and favourites star. Any help appreciated.

Can you attach a screenshot ?


You can find items like "Take a Screenshot" and the Bookmark Star in the drop-down list that opens if you click the "Page actions" button (3-dot icon at the right end of the location/address bar). You can right-click an item in the "Page actions" drop-down list to add its button to the location/address bar for easy access.

Right click anywhere empty at the top of the browser in the menu areas. Click Customize. If any of your missing icons are here, you may drag them to the menu area. You can also check the overflow menu >> in case any might be there.

Inside the Address Bar itself, click on the 3-dot icon ... Right-click anything in that menu to get the "Add to address bar" action.

As to the headphones icon, perhaps you need to be in a state where these would appear in order to find them in one of the menus. I have no experience with this. It seems like they should simply appear in the Pocket menu. https://help.getpocket.com/article/1081-listening-to-articles-in-pocket-with-text-to-speech The bottom of the article mentions reason why some articles may not give an option to listen. You may also contact Pocket support directly: https://getpocket.com/contact_support

If,on the other hand, none of these other icons are available, or will not stay in the address bar or menu area, further steps can be taken, such as starting in Safe Mode, Firefox Safe Mode, testing with a new profile, or reinstalling Firefox.
