I think I lost labeled options in Firefox browser



I think I had labeled options under the navigation bar, toward the left, until today. After an interruption reboot (power off), it came back without those choices (I used to be able to click "bookmarks" and get a drop-down list of recently bookmarked items, for example. Or, I could click on the word "history" and get a list of choices, to show history for today, or through yesterday, or through the past week, etc..

I can still get to these things by other means, but I am more word-oriented than icon-oriented in my thinking-processes.

Is there an easy way to restore the former appearance?

Do you mean the Home, History &c. icons? Before the mishap, were you using a custom theme? If that theme has been replaced by the default, it may have blown the text.

Or...

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer

You have to configure that, after installing, on Page 1 of "Toolbars".

Firefox is becoming Chrome, more and more... :(

ETA: I THINK that, if you right-click on the bar and select "Customise", you get the option you want, at the bottom. But, the addon I mentioned might've added that.

PS PaleMoon is a much better version of Firefox than Firefox is. It has x64 and x86 versions, too.

Yes that's how it's done, only in America it's spelled "customize".

Firefox is my primary browser, and I never have any problems whatsoever.
