Ctrl+o did open the sidebar, but ctrl+shift+b don't Show/hide the Bookmarks toolbar, on Win10 firefox84 works fine. I check systems keyboard shortcut and ctrl+shift+b isn't registered at all.

Chosen solution

On Linux you use and always had to use "Ctrl+Shift+O" (letter 'o') to open the Library. On Linux this has never been "Ctrl+Shift+B", but in the next release (85) "Ctrl+Shift+B" will toggle the Bookmarks Toolbar.

It works for me. Why not download a separate new version to a folder and give it a try.

Hi, jonzn4SUSE

Thanks for you reply! That seems to be a solution. Maybe I should't persist in finding the reason why the shortcut doesn't work.

Hi, cor-el

What? I thought it was ok when I saw my version verified the firefox support (see the screenshot below)

So i was mislead by https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly

I checked that my desktop environment GNOME 3 and "ctrl+shift+B" was not used.

Works for me in Firefox 84 on Linux. Screenshot of the Browser Toolbox.
