    Bookmarks subfolder icons missing in Firefox 4

    My apologies if this is out of, or in the wrong place, but it took me ages to find a solution to this problem where my folder icons in bookmarks in Firefox 4 had disappeared. A very good man has the solution here; http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...d.php?t=259976

    For future reference, see Firefox 4 Mega Thread.

    Thank you. I had this problem, too.

    According to that forum post, just put the following code in

    ~/.mozilla/firefox/<profile_name>/chrome/userChrome.css

    Code:
    @namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");
    menu.bookmark-item > .menu-iconic-left {
      visibility: visible;
    }
    If there isn't a chrome folder and/or userChrome.css, just create them.

    For the newbs (I am one): to see the mozilla folder in your home profile, you have to use shortcut CTRL+H to see hidden folders.

    Neither of these solutions has worked for me by the way. Only the subfolder icons are missing off the bookmarks toolbar in Firefox 4, Ubuntu 11.04x64

    Close Firefox, rename the file places.sqlite from your FF profile folder (~/.mozilla/firefox/<profilename>/places.sqlite) to places.sqlite.old. Start Firefox, open the Bookmarks manager (CTRL+SHIFT+O), select "Import & Backup >>> Restore" and select the latest backup to restore your bookmarks.

    Can confirm (years later and in Firefox 18 after importing my profile from an Windows installation) that this works!

    Thanks to the two who posted this!

    On the side, I wanna mention that I needed to rename userChrome-example.css to userChrome.css and restart Firefox to see the change.

    Cheers!
