Hi!

It used to localstore.rdf, which was replaced by xulstore.json. But when I delete the latter, all the buttons remain on toolbars. Only the visibility of the different toolbars and the bookmark sidebar are reset. What gives?
Where is this configuration stored now?

I think you need to reset the browser.uiCustomization.state pref and restart.

More info: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2904815 (see patrickjdempsey's posts)

Thanks, though curiously, still not enough. (also deleted xulstore.json at the same time.)
All the buttons, elements remain on the menubar and tabbar. Xulstore and still get refilled with the old stuff somehow.

I can reset the toolbars without using the customize UI.

* exit app
* delete xulstore.json file
* delete browser.uiCustomization.state pref value in prefs.js file

Code: Select all
user_pref("browser.uiCustomization.state", "");

* start app

That's what I did eventually. At first I just tried deleting in in about config to no avail.

My thinking is, that if something's corrupted, built in features might not restore it to default state.
