Just got 103.0.1 update, and bookmarks sidebar has disappeared. No luck finding any way to get it back. What the hell?

So, Firefox automatically updated (to 103.0.1), and somehow or other the sidebar with all the bookmarks disappeared. Normally, this would take me about 10 seconds to find where the function was hidden, and turn it back on. No big deal--just a petty nuisance. Now, however, this function has been hidden so well, that I have no clue where to look.

I understand that interfaces change, and not everyone works the same way, but that's no excuse for flat out taking away a tool that some people (no matter how small a minority) still use on a regular basis, just in the dubious name of 'fashion.' Leave well enough alone. If I wanted my tools changed and moved on an irregular and capricious basis, I'd stick to Microsoft.

Now, please tell me how to get my bookmarks side bar back, or put together an update that makes it functional again.

You can display the Bookmarks Sidebar again with Ctrl + B or, from the Menu Bar -> View -> Sidebar

You can also add the Sidebar button to your toolbar -
