Due to a rebuild, I just reinstalled Firefox and sync'd up to regain my bookmarks. In doing so, I ensured that the Bookmarks Toolbar is always present. But as you can see from the attached image, while the bar is there, there are no icons. When I move my cursor over the bar, nothing appears, nor can I click on anything. When I click on my Bookmarks icon and toggle to the Bookmarks Toolbar folder, I see all of my prior settings there.

I have subsequently uninstalled and reinstalled. Same result.

Any ideas?

Make sure that the "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" control is still positioned on the Bookmarks Toolbar. If the "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" control is not on the Bookmarks Toolbar then drag it back from the Customize palette to the Customize page to the Bookmarks Toolbar If you do not see an item on a toolbar and in the Customize palette then click the Restore Defaults


If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

This could be a problem with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder.

  • use the "Places Database" -> "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page

If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox or reboot and retry.

Update: I did this fix yesterday, and it worked. But when I opened my browser today, it went back to the previous state of the Bookmarks Toolbar being visible but without icons or buttons. Help?
