Strange arrows on Bookmarks Bar

There are a strange set of arrows on my Bookmarks Bar. Please check this URL: http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/cocorocara/MyScreenshot.png The underlying bookmark has nothing to do with it. Even if I delete the bookmark, the arrows still remain. I am using Firefox 3.6.13 on Ubuntu 10.10. I haven't installed any new extensions or themes. How can I get rid of these arrows? Thanks for your help. CC

Re: Strange arrows on Bookmarks Bar

Those arrows usually appear when you drag an item to the bookmarks toolbar. Do they stay after a Firefox restart? Does this issue take place in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode?

Re: Strange arrows on Bookmarks Bar

Hi! Thanks for your reply. Yes, the arrows used to remain after restart.

There were no arrows in safe-mode.

When I restarted in normal mode after exiting from safe-mode, the arrows are no longer visible. Now no more arrows in either mode!

I had never noticed those arrows earlier, and I don't remember adding any new bookmark to the toolbar recently.

Anyway, Thank you. I will mark the issue as solved.

Re: Strange arrows on Bookmarks Bar

I have the same problem in firefox 4 on ubuntu 10.10. The arrows appeared after I switched back to the default theme from a theme that was incompatible with firefox 4. I have tried starting in safe mode; the arrows are still there in safe mode.
