Bookmarks tab is gone with the installation of Firefox 23

Posted

When I started Firefox this morning, it did an automatic update of Firefox. Once Firefox started the Bookmarks tab in the Bookmarks toolbar was gone.

You get the Bookmarks Menu button on the Navigation Toolbar if the Bookmarks Toolbar is hidden and the Menu bar is hidden as well (no Bookmarks menu).

  • Firefox menu button > Options
  • View > Toolbars (press F10 to display the menu bar)
  • Right-click empty toolbar area
