How do I get the Linux Mint bar in Firefox, like I got the Menu bar but can't find the Linux Mint bar?

I don't know what a Linux Mint bar is in Firefox. But to show additional toolbars in Firefox, open the View menu and then go to Toolbars, and see what is ticked or unticked in that list.

Firefox -> Extra-> Add-ons-> Themes-> Search for more Themes and ...enter the search query Linux Mint,and choose Install theme,when you found the one

I don't think it is a Firefox option, but a Linux Mint add on, the bar goes immediately under the address bar and shows various Linux Mint links, one being the forum.

Hello, chazb.

Is this what you call the Linux Mint bar, the (favourite) bookmark icon-bar right below the URL address bar?
Cf. screenshot from my Firefox below.

(click screenshot to enlarge. press <alt><cursor left> to return here.)


The bookmark icon-bar can be switched on and off and back on in the way which Moem had explained.

As can be told from the screenshot above the initial bookmark icons, which will be present, when Firefox is launched for the first time on Mint and when it then creates a new default Firefox profile, can be changed and have been changed on my Firefox.

Is it this bookmark icon-bar which you are after?

Regards,
Karl

That's just the FF links bar with default Mint links on it.

I'd call it the bookmarks toolbar... but that's a matter of mere semantics.

May the final word on semantics by spoken by the Mozilla support page: Bookmarks Toolbar - Display your favorite websites at the top of the Firefox window
Oops, Mozilla agree with Moem's wording, what a surprise. :wink:
(But my bookmarks toolbar looks nicer than Mozilla's as does my whole Firefox.)
