I run FF18 on XP Pro and Win7 Home premium machines,Win7 toolbar appears to have updated from 17, XP toolbar why?

Posted

XP SP3 toolbar retains the symbol in Home and Back areas, Win7 now has the words instead. Other areas seem to do the same. Both work properly. Another problem which may be relevant is that the appearance of my ISP website front page on XP has not been updated when the ISP recently did so, Win 7 is up to date. It all looks like XP stuff is stuck in the past for some reason but works OK. There have been issues with XP but not this one.

Chosen solution

You can check the toolbar setting in the customize window (Icons, Text, Icons and Text).

  • View > Toolbars > Customize
  • Firefox > Options > Toolbar Layout

You may have to click the Restore Default Set button in the Customize window.

You can also check for problems with the localstore.rdf file.
