Shortcuts for extensions are not showing up on toolbar

more options

The shortcuts for enabled extensions are no longer showing up on menu or toolbar in browser window. How do I get them back?

Chosen solution

I solved the issue as follows: Go to Settings, then Extensions and Themes. From there, see a list of the installed and enabled extensions. See Screen Capture 1

I entered each one into the search box at the top and found the extensions. Once the extension was found, click on it and a new window opens up for the extension. See Screen Capture 2

There is a button to "Remove" the extension. I removed each one. See Screen Capture 3

The extension is instantly removed. The remove button is then replaced with an "Add to Firefox" button. Click that and the extension is re-installed and will show up in the top right corner of the browser window See Screen Capture 4

One possible reason is if you are using a private browsing window: you need to give extensions permission to run in private windows. More info in this article: Extensions in Private Browsing.

Otherwise, you could check in the Customize panel whether the buttons are on the overflow list, or in the box of available buttons. If all else fails, try the Restore Defaults button at the bottom of the Customize panel and see whether the buttons become available. See: Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars.

Any luck so far?
