Windows 7: Bookmarks appear in quick launch tool bar

Bookmarks appear in quick launch tool bar

Using Win 7 x64 and Firefox 4 with a Dell 23.5" LCD monitor, I randomly see Firefox bookmarks (1 or 2 bookmarks) appearing in the area at the bottom of the screen where the Firefox add-ons are shown (one add-on currently - "Ad Block Plus" - so the red stop sign shows) and blending into the taskbar/quick launch tool bar. These random bookmarks show up about centered on the width of the screen.

If I click anywhere in the Taskbar/quick launch tool bar, the shown bookmarks vanish. What the heck is going on? And, can it be fixed?

Hi Boaterbob and welcome to the Forum. Could you perhaps post a screen shot so we can better understand you problem. See link.

JohnnyA, when the persistent icons show up in the taskbar after using the Firefox Bookmark menu selection, clicking START to get to the snipping tool is the same as clicking anywhere in the taskbar and that makes the bookmarks vanish. Right now there is a rectangular box imposed over the Firefox 'add-on' bar (at the bottom of the Firefox page) and over the Taskbar - in this box are the 'Windows seven forums' words and under that "Open All in Tabs".

Edit: it seems that when I open a Bookmark folder, that the last bookmark in that folder plus the always at the end of a folder list, the words "Open All in Tabs" are what show up in the Taskbar.

So whatever Bookmarks folder I open, the last bookmark in that folder plus the words "Open All in Tabs" is what shows up. Clicking on the Taskbar makes the image vanich.

Hi Boaterbob. Umm - now I see why you cannot get a screenshot of this annoying problem. I'm unfamiliar with Firefox so perhaps one of our other, more knowledgable members, can jump in and lend a hand. I'm quite sure someone will solve your problem.

You can hit control + b to close the bookmarks toolbar. You can also hit the start button on your keyboard and type snip to open the snipping tool.

Here's a discussion about this issue in the Mozilla forum -

Not sure it the problem is a Firefox or Windows7 issue.

Quick Launch ?
Hi. I want to have the shortcuts be placed ON the taskbar as shown in the screendump attached to this query. I have read about quick launch here on the forum, but I cannot get the dotted bar at the right of the start be moved. How can I solve the problem ?

Quick Launch
When I take the Quick Launch bar off the taskbar, and then put it back on, all the icons are organized completely different. Is there any way to make it always stay the same?

Quick Launch bar
MS seem to have decided that their "pin applications to the taskbar" feature is a much better solution than the Quick Launch bar - otherwise surley they would not have annoyed all those who have been using the Quick Launch bar for years by removing it... I am getting used to the new taskbar in...

Quick Launch Bar
I heard that the Quick Launch Bar has been removed in Windows 7. I sure hope that isn't true. Maybe someone will write a third party app to replace it. I use it over a hundred times a day. I would miss it greatly.
