Missing bookmarks button on the bookmarks toolbar

Posted

On Mac OS X (10.7.5), after firefox 23.0.1 update, the orange Bookmarks button that was on the Bookmarks toolbar (next to "Most visited") disappeared.

I tried to reset firefox, and got a Bookmarks button on the Navigation toolbar back, but that is less useful (more mouse travel ^^). Also, I tried to customize the Bookmarks toolbar and can put on it a Bookmarks menu, but it's not orange (black) and, more importantly, it cannot be renamed (I used to put an empty name to save space on the toolbar).

Any ideas ? Thanks,

Me too! I hope it's fixed soon. I never realized how much I rely on this bookmarks toolbar throughout my work day. As of right now, I can't even find a workaround.

Is this about the Bookmarks Menu button that shows the bookmarks in a drop-down list?

You can hide the label text with code in userChrome.css

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.

The customization files userChrome.css (user interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the Firefox profile folder.

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#bookmarks-menu-button .toolbarbutton-text {display:none!important}

Hi pmishler

You can open the Customize window and drag this button to the wanted position.

  • Firefox menu button > Options > Toolbar Layout
  • View > Toolbars > Customize

I had the same problem and tried dragging and dropping the bookmarks button several times. Problem was, I was dragging it to the wrong place... where it USED to be. I found success when I dragged it beside the minimize/re-size/quit buttons. That'll do. It's a drop down menu rather than a side bar and near where I'm accustomed to finding it. See attached screen shot.

Ciao
