toolbar text vanished, can't get text OR icons back
I'm on the ESR and just updated from 112.0.2 to 113.0.1. I had text rather than icons displayed on my toolbar. Now the text has vanished and I can't find a way to get text OR icons back. I have a disabled extension Classic Theme Restorer installed, but I thought it was already disabled long ago. In the Customize Toolbar dialog, the unused icons are displayed with text labels. When I drag one to the toolbar, it turns invisible like all the rest.
Note that 112.0.2 and 113.0.1 are regular releases and not ESR versions (current ESR is 102.11.0). You can only get the label text with code in userChrome.css as an extension like Classic Theme Restorer that supported this as one of its many features stopped working in 57 and newer (Quantum design).Read this answer in context 👍 1

If the toolbar text and icons have disappeared in Firefox, there are a few steps you can try to resolve the issue:
Restart Firefox: Close and reopen the Firefox browser. Sometimes, this simple step can resolve minor display issues.
Check Toolbar Settings: Right-click on an empty area in the toolbar and ensure that "Bookmarks Toolbar" is checked. If it's already checked, uncheck and recheck it to see if the text and icons reappear.
Customize Toolbar: Right-click on an empty area in the toolbar and select "Customize". In the customization window, click on the "Restore Defaults" button to reset the toolbar settings to their default configuration.
Disable Extensions: Certain extensions or themes can interfere with the display of toolbar text and icons. Temporarily disable any extensions or themes you have installed and see if the issue is resolved. You can do this by going to the Firefox menu, selecting "Add-ons," and disabling the extensions/themes one by one.
Create a New Profile: If the issue persists, try creating a new Firefox profile. This will start Firefox with a fresh profile without any custom settings. To create a new profile, close Firefox and open the Run dialog (press Windows key + R), then type "firefox.exe -P" and hit Enter. In the profile manager window, click on "Create Profile" and follow the prompts to set up a new profile. Once created, select the new profile and see if the toolbar displays properly.
Reset Firefox Settings: As a last resort, you can try resetting Firefox to its default settings. This will remove any customizations and restore Firefox to its original state. To reset Firefox, go to the Firefox menu, select "Help," and choose "Troubleshooting Information." In the Troubleshooting Information page, click on the "Refresh Firefox" button and confirm the reset.
Note that 112.0.2 and 113.0.1 are regular releases and not ESR versions (current ESR is 102.11.0). You can only get the label text with code in userChrome.css as an extension like Classic Theme Restorer that supported this as one of its many features stopped working in 57 and newer (Quantum design).
Aha, thanks! I was pretty sure that extension was long dead. In userChrome.css I have:
/* text labels on nav bar */ @import "userChrome-TextOnlyOnToolbar.css"; /* TEXT ONLY on Toolbar from https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/tree/master/classic/css/toolbars toolbar_mode_icons_and_text.css (220.127.116.11) + toolbar_mode_text.css (1.2.9) */
I'll have to see if there's an update there. If not, at least I can get the icons back.
(Weird that they took us off the ESR. Must have been too many complaints at some point about new features people wanted sooner.)
