My vertical column of bookmarks down the left side of my screen has disappeared and I need to find a way to get it back in the same place.


This is purely a lay-out issue. We used to be able to choose to permanently display our bookmarks vertically down the left side of the screen, and I want to continue to be able to do so. My bookmarks are not lost; I know they are in my library. But the system doesn't seems to allow me to leave them on permanently down the left side. Please help. I have Windows 7 64-bit and the latest version ofFirefox.

Do you mean that the bookmarks sidebar (View > Sidebar > Bookmarks) gets disabled?


  • Press F10 or press and hold the Alt key down to bring up the "Menu Bar" temporarily.
