My extension icons disappeared from the address bar. How do I get them back?

I reset the Windows OS on my PC. When I reinstalled Firefox and synced it, the extensions automatically returned but their icons were missing from the address bar.

Worse they only work if I click the extension drop-down and specifically the extension. They used to be aware of the website and automatically do their thing. E.g. the NordPass symbol previously appeared next to passwords and I could click to have the password automatically filled in. Now I have to select the NordPass extension and copy the items one by one into the form. Ditto for Grammerly

And still worse the setting was synced to my laptop.

Extensions must be redownloaed and reinstalled to work again if they aren't showing up. Not sure what you mean "reset the Windows O/S" this is confusing what terminology is being used here.
