There was a time window of 2 hours and 24 minutes before I posted my response..... I did so, as nobody else  1... knew the answer...... 2..... seemed to be interested enough to have a guess....
and it`s not MY fault that chit chat is so quiet..... so don`t blame me....... Wink

Bookmarks tool bar is quite good. I use it for my most used RSS feeds. I am using Chrome on my work laptop and it doesn't have the same feature and I really miss it.

Re: Bookmarks Tool bar on Firefox/google search

Well, my Firefox bookmarks toolbar has a little "x" top right to switch it off if required. To get it back: "View/Toolbars"
Personally I prefer it there all the time, but I'm funny that way....
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

One of the reasons I use Firefox is the All-in-One Sidebar add on.  Once installed you never see your sidebar until you move the mouse pointer very close to the left or right edge of the screen.  Its very sophisticated with an excellent choice of options. You can switch it to show not only bookmarks but history, downloads and add ons.  I was so impressed with it that I even donated £10!  When Chrome was being developed I tried to suggest they include a similar feature but, unfortunately they didn't bother.  I've tried to find a similar add on for Chrome without success.  This is the link to the Firefox All in One add on.  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1027/
