Firefox opens new window when link is clicked but the bookmarks toolbar is missing


When I start up firefox, the original window displays my bookmark toolbar. But when I click a link where firefox opens a new window, not a new tab, the new window doesn't display my bookmark toolbar. I made sure that it was toggled to be on, and the original window has it, but the new one does not. I don't know how to fix it and it's really irritating because I use the toolbar a lot.

Resetting the Firefox interface to the defaults does NOT correct the missing bookmarks toolbar on new windows.

I still don't have any solution to this problem that meets my needs.
