I'd like to first state that although the bookmarks are not showing up, the bookmarks bar is.
I don't know what has caused this but somehow, FF has stopped showing the bookmarks in the bookmarks bar. I also cannot drag and drop a link onto the bar either. When I try that, I get a circle with a slash through it.
I've tried a few things, including:
1. Installing Places Maintenance 2.0.3 add on and attempting a fix. 2. Backing up my bookmarks and deleting the places.sqlite file as stated here:
Neither helped and has not allowed me to view old bookmarks or drag new bookmarks onto it.
NOTE that the bookmarks are still there. I can see them when I click on the bookmarks icon and show the Bookmarks Toolbar. Now that I think about it. They shouldn't be there should they? Shouldn't the bookmarks be wiped out? I didn't import them yet. The only thing that did change is that their icons disappeared when viewing them from the bookmarks menu.
This happened on my father's machine a few days ago according to him. I don't see any recent releases, so I'm not sure what it could be. Is it possible that he accidentally activated/deactivated something? He is almost blind and sometimes doesn't notice when he clicks on things.
