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.

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!

Realized recently that all icons from background apps I'm running, like: Privacy Badger, Lightbeam and uBlock Origin, among others, have disappeared completely from my Firefox top toolbar - or, a Firefox top toolbar.

For instance, I have recently fired up a VPN service. I wanted to fire off Lightbeam to see how/if the VPN is working, but the Lightbeam icon is gone, as is the Privacy Badger icon, and the uBlock Origin icon, among others.

As far as I can tell, some, or all, of these installed apps, 'seem' to be still installed and actively running in background mode.

I 'think' uBlock Origin, for example, dynamically blocked a couple of nasty tabs recently.

But I can't get any info on/from/regarding these apps (or some of them, perhaps, at least). I don't even know where these apps are stored and/or whether or not they are still installed and running, although I 'think' they are.

Recent Firefox upgrades have fired up Pocket, which seems/seemed interesting. However, is it possible, perhaps, that Firefox upgrades and/or instantiation of Pocket caused these apps [or at least, the icons for these apps, that appeared to be the equivalent of shortcuts], to have disappeared?!

I hate it when stuff like this changes/happens. Usually, with Microsoft and Windows, here and there, seems like you need to empathize with the OS from the ground up.

Every once in a while - less so, for a while now - it seemed like I would sneeze or wave my hands and I'd have, I dunno, a sidebar menu, for instance where one either didn't exist before or was a horizontal toolbar.

Arrggh...

Have checked most of the postings for: how to customize, add/modify this or that toolbar and several other options, but am totally at sea, as to what might have changed [and when and how] to cause these apps, and the valuable info that they and their icons provide, to disappear.

Help!

Thanks and best,

Dan

I am building a computer kiosk that utilizes Firefox Quantum ESR 60.3 to access sensitive data, and therefore has to fit certain security compliance standards. Part of these standards include hiding the address bar and toolbar in order to restrict access to settings to users. I've tried implementing a "userChrome.css" script to hide it but I think that solution does not work for versions after 57 as it did not work. I've also tried editing the profile's "prefs.js" file to no avail.

Is there a solution to hide the address bar/toolbar that works with the newest version of Firefox Quantum ESR?

Here's a link to the userChrome solution: https://superuser.com/questions/977912/firefox-hide-everything-except-content-area-of-the-browser/1269912#1269912

Using Customize I set up my toolbars in the following order: Menu bar, Navigation bar, and Bookmark bar....but it won't stay that way for long. After several searches or certainly when I reboot, the order always reverts to Menu, Bookmark and Navigation. How can I keep it from changing after I've set it up? [I'm using 32 bit Windows].

I recently downloaded some some tool bars that were suggested by Mozilla Firefox. Now, when I try to open the Firefox browser it immediately goes to the affilinet toolbar- Account Data window which asks for the Publisher ID and Publisher Web service Password. I don't know either of these and can't get past this window to use the browser. How can I disable this or get past it so I can use the Firefox browser?

I have updated FF to the new 39 version, Yahoo says I have the most updated version of the toolbar AND STILL THERE ARE NO BUTTONS ON THE TOOLBAR BUT THE EMAIL ONE!!!!! What is going on, is it a FF issue or a Yahoo issue? They say it's here and here says it's there... Can SOME ONE PLEASE fix this problem? I'm sorry for yelling and sorry if someone thinks this is rude, but this has been going on for what, 3 version updates now? I think it's time to fix it, don't you? Oh and I almost forgot, when I go to FF tools and view the add-ons, as soon as I click the options button of the Yahoo toolbar enable/disable....The whole thing freezes up and I have to open up task manager to end processes of FF. If I don't do this then there is no way to get out of FF at all. This is a bad issue that makes it not useable at all. With also getting a connection error when trying to download from yahoo directly.
