Can I have a bookmarks bar like the one chrome has?

Posted

I manually imported my bookmarks from chrome, but I do not have the bookmarks bar at the top like I had in Chrome. Is there any way I can do this?

Firefox does not have a bar that shows all bookmarks. It does have a Bookmark Toolbar that will display just under the URL/Address bar, but that shows those added to the Bookmarks Toolbar. I suggest you read the following and links within the article to familiarize yourself with Firefox bookmarks and bookmarks features. A good starting place to find your bookmarks will be by clicking the item "Where can I find my bookmarks?" on the table of contents on that page.
