How to fix your Delicious toolbar in Firefox 3

Not long after installing Firefox 3, I started having trouble with my Delicious add-on. The buttons disappeared from the address bar and the Delicious toolbar became blank or did not display favorite tags. I tried uninstalling, re-installing and clearing any local cache to no avail. Working Delicious from the menu alone was extremely painful. Miraculously, the toolbar came back on one of my computers, but only temporarily. At one point, all my toolbars became wonky and I had to rebuild a bunch of buttons. And then I stumbled upon the fix for the blank Delicious toolbar.

If you're struggling with a blank Delicious toolbar, do the following:
  1. Make sure that your Delicious toolbar is visible.
  2. Click View > Toolbars > Customize.
  3. Under the icons, find "Delicious Toolbar" with a double icon.
  4. Drag it onto your blank Delicious Toolbar.
  5. Click Done.
At this point, you can change your view to Bookmarks, Favorites or Tag Bundles. You can use the same procedure to put the main Delicious buttons back on your Navigation toolbar as well.

After several Web searches, I finally found these instructions, which being 2 years old I wondered if they would work. But they did!

I started having this problem with Firefox 3.6 and just thought it was a Firefox upgrade problem.

Thanks for helping me fix it - I too was getting very tired of using the menu.
