About a week ago, the links to my addons disappeared from my menu bar. Since this is the only place I can access their settings, this renders them pretty unusable. I’ve tried Customize and no options exist for the addons. I’ve tried the refresh Firefox option and that did nothing. I tried deleting and then reinstalling them… still nothing. Will be forced to use Opera if I can’t figure this out. Any help would be appreciated. BTW, I did see the post from a few years ago where someone had a similar problem. The advice does not apparently apply to any settings, files or folder I actually have with my current install.
You can usually access extension settings via the “Add-ons” page where you can manage them all. Select an extension and click on the “Preferences” tab.
So you are saying you do not see any toolbar buttons for your extensions? Which extensions specifically? And what Firefox version?
I am also having this problem. I added youtube downloader to Firefox, but it doesn’t appear in the toolbar. Neither does downloader express. When I use the “more tools” button to add them to the toolbar, they aren’t in the list of items to add. In fact, if I set to defaults, only 4 of my add-ons even show up in the list. How do I add my most used add-ons to the toolbar?
Not all extensions add toolbar buttons.The ones that do you should find in the customization pallette and you can reorder them. Some extensions have no ui at all, or only inside a website, provide a sidebar (available from the list of sidebars) or have a page action, which is a button in the url bar that is only dislayed for sites the extension applies to. You can see all buttons that can appear in the toolbar in the “…” menu. You can also right click on items to pin/unpin them.
