display bookmarks

Posted

Firefox 17.0.1 Win7

Some time ago -- somewhere and somehow -- I found a way to display all of my Bookmarks / Bookmark folders in a vertical column on the left side of my monitor. This list of Bookmarks "stuck" and appeared at all times.

It seems I must have recently accidentally clicked on something to cause this Bookmark list to disappear.

How do I get it back?

Chosen solution

{Ctrl + B} opens and closes the Bookmarks Sidebar.
