New Lenovo Desktop ThinkCentre, 16GB RAM, Three 1TB Drives, Windows 11 Pro 64bit, Firefox 104.02 (I don't remember when exactly the icons disappeared - I have been working offline until today - I unplug from the internet unless I'm using it, to try to keep Microsoft out of my PC as much as possible - I'm really considering going back to Linux.)


Add-On Extension Icons are NOT showing. Complicated, but non-working, answers to this problem provided on the internet more than once over the years!

I need to get to some work items from my OneTab saves and cannot.

HOW can I install an older version over this one? HOW can wait to install new versions until they have been tested? HOW can I switch to only get "long term support" versions?

Thanks, Margaret Fennell

P.S. Is there a way to suggest to DuckDuckGo that they SORT their search results BY DATE the article was written and show the dates in the search results? That seems like a DUH.... to me.

You might be running Firefox in Private Browsing mode and not all extension work in PB mode or do not work in PB mode like MAC.

Check that you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History).

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"
  • remove checkmark: [ ] "Always use Private Browsing mode"

Thank you so much. I envisioned complicated re-installations and loss of data and settings, but you provided me (and so quickly) with such a simple and effective solution. I couldn't find "Private Browsing" anywhere in Firefox Settings; apparently, if you choose to never save browsing history, it is automatically selected and then disappears from the settings! So I appreciated the simple instructions to make it visible again so I could uncheck it. Thank you, thank you. --Anne Fennell
