How to Restore the Bookmarks Toolbar in Firefox

There’s a typical pattern concerning Web browser toolbars that you tend to see with people as they learn how to use that particular browser.

At first they will be hesitant to add any new add-on, extension or toolbar to the browser, for fear that they will install something that will break their computer.

But as time goes by and they become more comfortable, new programs start to get installed that add toolbars by default, and that default installation starts to look very different.

Then their computer starts running slowly, and someone comes over to check it out, only to determine that all of the toolbars are slowing the computer down substantially. So they start removing any toolbar they find, which could lead to the accidental removal of the bookmarks toolbar.

Luckily you can restore the bookmarks toolbar in Firefox even if you have removed it, using just a few short steps.
