A mess! Every day the customized toolbar disappears. And I need to customize again .... This has been going on for some versions (current 84.0.1) And even if you copy the xulstore.json folder and the entire extensions folder to the profile folder, it doesn't work. Every time I quit Firefox and open it again, I lost all the customization of the toolbar ... I've seen all the posts on support, and nothing solves me ... What can I do? One of the reasons for not abandoning Firefox is its ability to customize with extensions, etc. But everything is lost .... every day !! w10 x 64, Home

How is it possible to use multirow bookmark toolbar in FF ESR 60 standalone (tar.bz2) on Debian 9 with Cinnamon?

I have a Debian 9.5 (stable) with Cinnamon DE. I didn't want to use backports repositories, so I downloaded the Firefox Quantum ESR tar.bz2 file and unpacked it.

By default, there are no possibilities to extend the bookmarks toolbar for more than 1 row. Pre-Quantum FFs had an extension to solve this issue but that doesn't work anymore. I tried a lot of solutions recommended on Github or Reddit but none of them were able to provide a working solution.

Do you have any idea?

I'm a recent convert from Chromium to Firefox - I'm using whatever today's version is (44.0.02 at this moment in time - rapid release sucks to search for answers that apply to my version by the way).

Two days ago I had the issue of certain add-ons not appearing next to the address bar for no apparent reason. They weren't available in the customise menu an uninstalling and reinstalling did nothing. They were just invisible. Today I've started my computer and found that the address bar takes nearly the whole length of that bar and I only have ">>" arrows for my add-ons. I might as well have them in the Menu for all the good they are hidden away.

How can I switch off the random display generator? How do I shorten the address bar so it's not pointlessly long and gives room for the extensions to be displayed? The good old "Click and drag" we're all so familiar with doesn't work.

Good morning,

In Iceweasel 38.01 I cannot permanently deactivate the extensions toolbar. There is not a single button on it and the option from the context-menu operates normally. But the toolbar reappears each time upon starting up the browser. I cannot locate a second configuration- or customization option, nor the pertinent help-text, if there is one, which allowed me to permanently get rid of the useless toolbar.

Thank you for any hints.

On Win 8.1 - updating to 64 removed all addons from toolbar. No way to access or use. They are still installed, just invisible. Reverting to 63 fixed the obviously broken 64.

So what do I do to get access to the icons? Nothing in customize and I've searched the web...not a word.

(hitting the "automatically add" below does not work either "we can't find..." and of course what is typed here goes away. )

Hi,

Ive installed the "The Addon Bar (restored)" extension. Im trying to customise my add-on bar by adding extensions their after clicking on "customise". Ufortunately, every time I close Firefox and re-open, my extensions disapeer from the the add-on bar. The only one that remains is the evenote webclipper.

Ive done alot of trouble shooting including refreshing(from troubleshooting infomation) and deleting the the contents of pref.js(in profile folder). Neither work, weirdly tho the latter restores some of my extensions but not all

How do I resolove the problem, any help would be greatly appreciated?

Thanks

Using Mac Yosemite 10.10.4 with Firefox 42... Bookmarks were "HTML Imported"... When I view Bookmarks from the Icon on the browser page - I can see all - including all subfolders. When I view Bookmarks from the Toolbar - I can see the contents of the folder - and, most of the subfolders, but not some of the subfolders. When I view "Show All Bookmarks" they all appear. Why am I not able to view all of the bookmarks - in all of the subfolders - from the toolbar drop-down??? Please advise.

Hello, I have been using Firefox for years, and have never experienced this problem. When I opened the browser today many of the items on the bookmarks toolbar were missing, e.g. PayPal, Chase, etc. When I right-click on the toolbar, and select "Open All in Tabs", it states, "You are about to open 17 tabs. This might slow down Firefox while the pages are loading. Are you sure you want to continue?" Currently there are only 4 items remaining that were there just yesterday. There may have been 17 items on there previously (they filled up the entire toolbar).

How can I recover the lost items? Why did they go away? I didn't intentionally delete them.

Thanks for your help. John

I would like to add a second row of addons to my menubar area. I will not use Classic Theme Restorer (which offers this feature) because CTR is a resource hog that slows down Firefox. There are many options for adding more Bookmark bars but I do not want that. I can't believe that no one a created a simply addon for installing a second Menubar. Please help.

Hello, When i reduce firefox to icon and then i re-open it , firefox windows glithces a bit on top of my applkication bar. I tried reistalling, changing theme but did not work. I posted also an image of the problem. The problem is temporarily fixable by clicking the application bar and then reclicking firefox. Is there chance to have a permanent solution to this? It's super annoying!

Accidentally or after upgrade (I did not notice) I got bookmarks side bar at right part of FF window. Instead of default left side, where it was before.

How can I get bookmarks sidebar back to the left side? Where it is placed by default in other installations of FF.

Thank you.

P.S. I saw several answers about Ctrl+B. It is not the case. I can hide it and bring back. But I need it at left side instead of current location.
