Missing search bar items
The other day I deleted the 'save bookmarks' icon in the search bar and can't seem to get it back. That's on a new tab. If I go to Firefox help, when the new tab opens, everything seems to be there. I've looked at this for so long I'm lost. Can anyone help?

Just a side note, if I open a bookmark link, everything's there in the toolbar, if I open a new tab, it's empty.
Firefox only shows the star on the location bar if you have opened a valid URL in this tab.
You may have accidentally removed the star via the right-click context menu (Remove from Address Bar). You can find items like "Take a Screenshot" and the Bookmark Star in the drop-down menu 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 3-dot "Page actions" drop-down list to add its button to the location bar for easy access.
You can add the "Bookmarks Menu" button that shows the bookmarks in a drop-down list to the Navigation Toolbar via these steps:
- click the bookshelf icon on the Navigation Toolbar or alternatively use the Library menu in the "3-bar" Firefox menu button drop-down list
- click Bookmarks
- click "Bookmarking Tools", then click "Add Bookmarks Menu to Toolbar"
You can also drag the Bookmarks Menu button from the Customize palette to the Navigation Toolbar
