Missing addon buttons Firefox

Post by riffly » Wed Feb 08, 2017 5:03 pm

I'm running the current portable version and it's running very well, using Firefox as the default.
Installed a few addons without any issues. My only problem is that I cannot see the buttons that's should be in a toolbar at the top.
How can I achiever that?
Any tips most welcome.

see: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=32891&p=193188

Add-ons are only supported when they don't really need a toolbar or Button. For example adblock plus in firefox.

Thanks Nederpietos, you confirmed what I figured in the meantime. Firefox is a "headerless" browser running within another browser in this instance, niets aan te doen maar tog logisch.
I've bridged this problem 95% by installing the extension The Addon Bar (restored) 3.2.9-compat-fixed-4.
It gives me a button bar at the bottom of the Firefox GUI and via Customize drag & drop buttons but not all extensions applicable.
At least I can personalize it and still enjoy the advantages of Avant.
Appreciate yr input.

Thanks for the info. I just installed it myself also and dragged the adblock plus button to the add-on bar at the bottom and it seems to work fine.
