How to add all imported bookmarks (from Chrome) to the toolbar (not just the bookmark menu)

I have been able to import all bookmarks from Chrome but want them to appear as Firefox bookmarks and be immediately accessible (as they were before I migrated to chrome from Firefox) and on the bookmarks toolbar. I can't find a way of doing this.

Import bookmarks from Google Chrome

Question owner

I found this link as soon as I opened Firefox and was able to import all my bookmarks from Chrome. However, in order to open a bookmark you have to go through a number of steps - I wanted to import all my previous bookmarks and see them displayed on the bookmarks toolbar. It seems the only way to do it is to drag folders (containing many bookmarks) or individual markers to the toolbar - then they remain visible and are readily available.
