Bookmarks keep disappearing from the toolbar

Posted

Lately, every time I open up Firefox, the bookmarks from my Bookmarks Toolbar are gone. I can only get the bookmarks back by un-bookmarking them, then bookmarking them and putting them back on the toolbar. It is getting very frustrating, so if any of you have some advice for me, I'd appreciate it!

Hello,

the cause of this is most probably a corrupt bookmarks file.

To fix it, you can follow the steps in the ((Lost bookmarks)) article.

I hope this helps you!

I'm afraid I can't figure out which article you mean...
