Happy new year all :)

Got an annoying prob here - whenever I start Firefox, the Bookmarks toolbar (which has nothing on it) always appears, eating up screen real estate. To switch it off, I have to right-click the toolbar and untick it.

It is also there if I choose 'Save and Quit' on exit and reload FF.

This only started happening about 2 weeks ago - I don't remember installing any addons or anything then.

Any ideas on how to stop it coming up? TIA :)

Edit: Here's a screencap if it helps (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/bookmarkstoolbar.jpg) ;)

Right Click the Toolbars area>Customize>Pull the "Bookmarks" thing (unsure what it is, im using opera currently) into the blank bookmarks area.

Now, when you save bookmarks to bookmarks bar folder they will appear on the toolbar.

If you don't want to use that feature then you can try unticking "Bookmarks Toolbar" again

It should work now

Can you not just go to View/Toolbars/Bookmarks Toolbar and untick it.

I don't know why you don't use it for your regular sites, that is what it is for.

That is horrible.

LOL its the smartest thing ever.

I've used it since I started using Opera and when I found out about the speedial add on I installed it straight away.

I use both the bookmarks toolbar and Speedial.

Useful stuff:thumbs:
