Extensions no longer show at top right after search bar
I'm new to Firefox and having problems getting started. I am 78 and not good with tech stuff.
Firefox was working quite well and then suddenly things went wrong. There was a "sidebar" open the entire length of the screen at the left, it usually showed history. My add-ons showed at the top right after the search bar, they disappeared. Bitwarden was one of them that I use all the time to log into websites. I think they disappeared when I closed the sidebar at the left. I would like to know how to open the sidebar and how to restore the add-ons. (They still show and are turned on under Add-ons Manager.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated as my Firefox is not usable in it's present form.

That would be the History Sidebar. You can open/close it using <Control> H The Bookmarks Sidebar is <Control> B
My add-ons showed at the top right after the search bar, they disappeared.
All of them? Some of them?
Type about:customizing<enter> in the address box.
Note: about:customizing is no longer present in Firefox 47+ releases.
- Press Alt or F10 to bring up the Menu Bar.Then View > Toolbars > Customize.
- Right-click on a blank spot in the toolbar and select Customize.
In the new window, look for the icon. When you find it, hold down the left button on it, and move it to where you want it to be. You can move any of the icons you want from here, but; some icons are locked in place.
There is also a Restore Defaults button at the bottom right.
FredMcd thanks for the reply! I tried both <control>H and <control>B but all it did was make the carrot disappear. I was doing it from my Firefox start page. All of my add-ons disappeared. I'm going to try Customize Firefox controls. I'll post after I try. Thanks, chubbles
Can you attach a screenshot?
- use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot
Make sure you do not run Firefox in Full Screen Mode (press F11 or Fn + F11 to toggle; Mac: Command+Shift+F).
When you are in Full Screen Mode, hover the mouse to the top of the screen to make the Navigation Toolbar and Tab bar appear. You can use one of these to leave Full Screen Mode:
- press the F11 key
- click the Maximize button at the right end of the Tab bar
- click the Full Screen button in the "3-bar" Firefox menu button drop-down list
- right-click empty space on a toolbar and click "Exit Full Screen Mode"
