I have 9.0.1 on 2 pc's, both xp sp3. On 1 the 'open new tab' button is visible, on the other, the 'open new tab' button is not even available in the 'customize toolbar' menu for dragging and dropping. Why?

I used the same installation file, but on 1 pc, the 'open new tab' button is available in the 'customize toolbar' menu and can be dragged and dropped onto the navigation bar. On the other pc, the 'open new tab' button/icon is not even available for dragging and dropping. I uninstalled firefox completely, including settings and preferences, then reinstalled, but that did not correct the missing button.

Hi,

Please try Restore Default Set in the Customize... window. If it's still not visible, one reason could be that the button is already placed on the toolbar but may be hidden behind another icon or toolbar.

Vivek, Have already tried the 'Restore Default Set' that did not reveal the 'open new tab' button in the 'Customize Toolbar' menu. Also, with 'Customize....' open, have moved all navigation bar items around and that did not reveal the missing button. So, still searching for an answer. ps.

OK, deleted the 'localstore.pfd' file, but initially this did not correct to problem because the 'open new tab' button was not visible on the 'Customize Toolbar' menu. BUT, per suggestion above from Vivek when in 'Customize....' I really dug around under several toolbars, and that button became visible when the 'List all tabs' button was moved. So, not sure which solution worked, but problem is corrected. Thanks to both of you, ps.
