The file, edit, bookmarks bar doesn't come on when I boot up and go onto Firefox. What did I click on to make this happen; and more importantly, how can I reverse this action, so that my bookmarks button re-appears?

    Thanx; but your solution didn't work.

  • James Young Jan 03, 2011

    Then you need to download Mozilla, uninstall the current one you have, and Install it again because it appears you have corrupted your install. I have 5 computers in my house and tested that solution on all 5 and it worked on all 5. That tells me it's your installation.

I have an IMAC and all of a sudden yesterday I cannot scroll down on facebook account!


Ruth, the solution would be to reset firefox back to its factory settings. First you will want to export your favorites and make sure that you have all your passwords for all your favorite sites documents.

To back up your bookmarks you will:
1. Click on Bookmarks under the bookmarks menu or under the orange firefox menu in the upper left hand corner.
2. Click on "Import and Backup" this menu will allow you to export your bookmarks to an HTML file, save that to your desktop.

Now that we have your bookmarks saved we can reset your browser.
1. Click on the help menu or in the upper left hand corner click on the firefox menu then help.
2. Under the help menu you will click on Troubleshooting information.
3. On the new window that opened you will see in the upper right hand corner a button that says "Reset FireFox" you will click that button and allow it to complete.

That will restore FireFox to it's original settings, allowing all your pages to load correctly.

To restore your bookmarks you will
1. Click on the bookmarks menu or the orange FireFox menu in the upper left hand corner select bookmarks.
2. Click on show all bookmarks.
3. Click on import and backup
4. select your backup file on the desktop.
That will restore all your bookmarks to your browser.

I hope this helps, please let me know the outcome.

Iwant to delete bookmarks

  4. 4Hold your mouse over the bookmark you wish to remove and right click.
  5. From the drop-down menu that appears, select the Delete button. From the drop-down menu that appears, select the Delete button.
  6. 6Alternately, delete all bookmarks in Firefox by deleting the bookmark file from Mozilla Firefox's user profile folder. (Note - This method will not work on Firefox 3. The bookmarking system has been changed from that of previous versions) This varies on each PC since the profile folder name is a randomly generated name, but here's an example:

    C:\Documents and Settings\(your account name)\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\f1f2f3f4f5.default\bookmarks.html

I delted toolbars to make my window bigger and now I can't get the toolbars back. I don't have anything to click on - just the windows that are open.


The Firefox "menu bar" includes dropdown menus for various tasks (including "File", "Edit", etc.). If the menu bar does not display, press the "Alt" key (if you are using Windows). That will restore the menu bar temporarily. To restore it permanently, go to the menu bar and select:
View > Toolbars > Menu bar

The Firefox "navigation toolbar" includes the "back", "forward", "reload" buttons, and the address bar (where you type a web address). If the navigation bar does not display, go to the menu bar and select:
View > Toolbars > Navigation toolbar

The Firefox "bookmarks toolbar" displays frequently used bookmarks. If the bookmark toolbar does not display, go to the menu bar and select:
View > Toolbars > Bookmarks toolbar

How do i import my bookmarks from firefox to safari


Hello. To import your bookmarks from your Firefox browser, choose "organze bookmarks" on the Bookmarks drop down menu at the top part of your firefox browser (or alternatively use ctrl+shift+B). This will open another window labeled "Library"; where all your bookmarks will be shown. From the "import and backup" drop down menu select "export HTML.."; a window pops up that will allow you to export/save your bookmark to a preferred location (Desktop, preferably). After which, open Safari, hit "File" then choose "import bookmarks" and just select the file that you earlier saved.

I disabled my book mark and tools bar ,how do i restore it on firefox,vista


Hi,
Replace your current bookmarks with a backup copy by opening the Firefox 3 Library window and using the "Restore" feature ("Bookmarks -> Organize Bookmarks -> Import and Backup -> Restore..." ). You can select one of the five dated backups that Firefox automatically creates or you can use the "Choose File..." option to select another bookmark backup file

Thank you

Cannot bookmark page


Hmm zone alarm should not be stopping you from bookmarking it has no outgoing connections to bookmark so that should have nothing to do with your problem. :)

My first thought is that the bookmarks.html file is read only, this happens sometimes after upgrading your firefox.
  1. Navigate to the profile folder
  2. Find bookmarks.html (you can open it and see if any bookmarks in it saved to make sure this is the right file)
  3. Right-click on the file, choose Properties
  4. On the General tab, make sure "Read only" is not checked.
  5. Press OK.
For help how to find the profile folder:
Operating system Profile folder location(s) Windows NT (NT 4.x, 2000, XP, and Vista) "%APPDATA%\Mozilla\" Windows 95 (without Desktop Update) C:\Windows\Mozilla Windows 95 (with Desktop Update)/98/Me C:\Windows\Application Data\Mozilla\
C:\Windows\Profiles\<Windows login/user name>\Application Data\Mozilla\
Unix/Linux ~/.mozilla/ Mac OS X ~/Library/Mozilla/
~/Library/Application Support/
If this did not help or it was not read only, another known reason for the bookmarks button to stop working is if you have either a non compatible extension/plugin installed or if you have norton antivirus that messes it up (compatibility issues). I would try to troubleshoot this by first slowly disabling one by one the plugins, meaning disable one, restart firefox, see if it solved it. You do it the following way:

1] From menu that is at the top of Firefox window, you need to click on Tools options and then choose Add-ons. Add-ons window will appear.
2] In add-ons window, you have to select Extensions panel to view your installed extensions
3] Check for extensions known to cause problem when they are installed with Norton: These include Piclens, freecorder, FoxyTunes, Google Toolbar, and Skype extension. If you do not have norton then just go one by one slowly disabling for test.
4] Disable one by one each and every extension that you have from list above each time testing if the one you just disabled was responsible

For disabling the extension do the following:
1] Click on the name of that extension to disable
2] To disable this extension, you have to click on disable button.
Repeat the steps given below for each extension that is causing problem.

5] After you have disabled the extension, you have to close Firefox window. Click on file menu and then choose exit.
6] Right click on any empty spot in Windows task bar and then choose Task manager. An alternative way is to press Ctrl + Shift + Esc
7] Select processes tab
8] Select firefox.exe entry in processes list and then press End process. If there is no “firefox.exe” entry then you can skip this step.
9] Start Firefox browser normally
10] Close Firefox browser again. Click on file menu and then choose exit
11] Start Firefox browser again and see if bookmarks works

Alternatively if after disabling all the addons/extensions the bookmark menu still not works, you can always backup your bookmarks file (located in profile folder, see above for exact path), save it somewhere, reinstall firefox completely and import/copy back the bookmarks.


If the above solutions helped you please rate:):) Let me know if it solves it or not, am sure we find the solution:)
