How can I display the old style bookmarks?


I just got a new computer with windows 7 and downloaded Firefox. I can't seem to figure out how to display the bookmarks window? I use it a lot and need to have it accessable, any help?

Firefox can display bookmarks in a drop-down list (Alt+b), in a sidebar (Ctrl+b) or in a separate window (Ctrl+Shift+b). Is one of these the one that isn't displaying as expected?

Edit: I forgot to mention the Bookmarks toolbar, which only has room for a few bookmarks, but is displayed all the time. You can turn it off and on using:

Alt+v (displays the classic View menu) > Toolbars > Bookmarks Toolbar
right-click a blank area of the tab bar > Bookmarks Toolbar
