I'm running the Nightly version of the Firefox web browser. It is the cutting edge version that is updated frequently and sometimes includes bugs or issues that are resolved when new features and technologies make their way to the Aurora, Beta and then Stable channel of the Firefox web browser.
Today's Nightly update removed the bookmarks icon from the tabbar, and a quick look around highlighted that it was not there anymore. I first assumed that it may have been moved to another toolbar but that was not the case.
I then tried to locate it in the customize window and while it was not there, a different icon was found instead that was listed as the bookmarks icon. It looks similar to the bookmark star that you see in the browser's address bar and I first assumed that it would not display the bookmarks menu directly in an on-screen menu but would load the bookmarks manager instead. This is however no the case. It has the same functionality as the old bookmarks icon.
Let me show you how to add the bookmarks icon back to the Firefox address bar or any other toolbar in the browser.
If everything turned out right, you should be able to display your bookmarks right in the Firefox interface again. The icon looks different now but the functionality is the same.
