    Hello everyone. I cannot seem to permanently hide the Mozilla Firefox Bookmarks toolbar. I am talking about the default toolbar that comes with Mozilla Firefox. I have to right click and uncheck it every time I start Firefox. Is there anyway that I can permanently prevent it from coming up? :confused:

    Yes, I did that and the toolbar still keeps loading everytime I restart Firefox. Believe me, I think I know enough to try that first. I even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and this did not resolve the problem. I have Firefox 1.5.0.4 in case you need that information.

    Try this:
    Close Firefox completely. Then restart Firefox in safe mode.
    Start> Mozilla Firefox> Mozilla Firefox(Safe Mode).
    You will have a window appear with some troubleshooting options. Select the option Reset toolbars and controls and choose Make Changes and Restart.

    Okay I have fixed it now. Basically what I did was I went into Safe Mode (again) and this time told Firefox to reset everything and then restarted Firefox. The bookmark toolbar is now staying gone! :)
