Moving bookmark bar above tabs

Posted by EmmaR (My Page) on

I was having a problem with the google search engine and I used the restore FF offers. Now my bookmark bar is below the tabs. I have searched and searched and can't find a way to move it up. I have W 7, FF 17.o.1 and have scanned for problems and found nothing.

The problem I had with the search engine is, it did not search. I could search with IE, but not with FF. I think it might have been an add on.

BTW if any of you like the red cats (green flavor) it has been updated. Yeah!!!!

Right-click on a toolbar and de-select "Tabs on Top"

I should have said remove the checkmark for Tabs on Top.

The version of FF used is important. I knew I wasn't quite yet going out of my mind as my v17.01 doesn't display anything like referred to above.

Here is a link that might be useful: How to Deselect the Tabs on Top

No it's not there. That is what I discovered when I searched for a solution. None of the instructions worked for me. Even FF didn't have a solution. I did find something about a bug, but I couldn't understand any of it.

The odd thing is I had it set above before setting FF to default.

Do you know what version of FF you are running?

Help...then 'about'.

Yes it's in my original post 17.0.1, the latest version.

Thanks DA, should have followed up on that site sooner. It worked.

I am such a creature of habit, I kept clicking on the wrong thing.

Just a follow up on this problem. I still had the problem with Google in FF, it would not search so I did a system restore to a November date. When I got it updated again and things in order, the tabs were on the top again. I checked view before I went to the site DA recommended, low and behold the option "tabs on top" was there. The mysteries of the computer!
