Hi,

About 4 to 6 weeks ago I messed up my main/home/Whatever named file:///home/kline/.mozilla/local/hotlist.html <an html file with 2-deep links to other bookmarks>. Upon reboot I must have done *something* that messed up everything. The "3-dot", "pocket", "star" was either moved leftward or vanished ... Now that clever 4-icon { |||\ } that used to bring up whatever I had bookmark was gone.

Can anybody help me?

The Firefox version from the Ubuntu repositories may behave differently than Firefox from the Mozilla server.

Did you look in the Customize palette for the missing Library button ?

You can find items like "Take a Screenshot" and the Bookmark Star in the drop-down list that opens if you click the "Page actions" button (3-dot icon at the right end of the location/address bar).
You can right-click an item in the "Page actions" drop-down list to add its button to the location/address bar for easy access.

You can add the "Bookmarks Menu" button that shows the bookmarks in a drop-down list to the Navigation Toolbar via these steps:

  • click the bookshelf 57 library icon icon on the Navigation Toolbar or alternatively use the Library menu in the "3-bar" Firefox menu button New Fx Menu drop-down list
  • click Bookmarks
  • click "Bookmarking Tools", then click "Add Bookmarks Menu to Toolbar"
The Bookmark Menu button Bookmark Menu icon (star on tray) should appear on the Navigation Toolbar.

You can also drag the Bookmarks Menu button from the Customize palette to the Navigation Toolbar
