MBToolbar Plus missing on Startup After Clean Firefox Install Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Five sparkling stars when it's working.
I'm on a Mac and seem to have the same problems as some Windows users.
I recently deleted my Firefox app and profiles and reinstalled a fresh copy of Firefox and add-ons. My old Firefox was up to date and I did not experience any problems with MBToolbar Plus. After I restored my bookmarks from a json file, I restarted my new copy of Firefox and found the following:
1.Upon restart, the toolbar is missing.
2. View-Toolbars-MB Bottom Bar is checked, but the toolbar does not appear anywhere. (The "Bottom Bar" option is unchecked in preferences. Auto-hide is also unchecked.)
3. When unchecking MB Bottom Bar via View-Toolbars-MB Bottom Bar, the toolbar appears in place below the address bar.
Once the toolbar is in place, it works as expected... until the next restart. The cycle occurs with every Firefox startup.
I hope this helps in figuring out the problem. This truly is a wonderful extension and this is the first time I've ever had any problem with it. Many thanks for your wonderful work
Same problem as the previous comment Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I have the same problem as the one ColonelAngus describes. Really annoying!
The computer is running Windows 10 with the latest Firefox 46.0.1
There is a second way of getting back the Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar: you have to tick the box that selects "move bookmarks toolbar to bottom of screen" in the settings for the Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar, then click ok. Toolbar shows up at the bottom. Then uncheck the box and click ok again. This has to be done after every restart of Firefox as well. Maybe that helps with narrowing down the bug.
EDIT: I just realized you do not need to hide the Multirow Toolbar with ColonelAngus' method... just click on customize, then on the green button at the bottom (the one with which you confirm your settings, I am running Firefox in German, so I don't know what it says in English. In German it says "Anpassung abschliessen" -> "confirm/finalize customization")
So basically you just open the customize menu, then just change nothing and close it via the confirm-button.
On another computer that is Firefox-synced to this one, I am running Windows 8.1 also with the latest Firefox, and the Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar gives me zero issues there, works flawlessly.
So I guess this has something to do with Windows 10. Used Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar before for years, never had a problem with that until I first tried it under Windows 10. It won`t work on a Win10-machine, and since it is no longer supported, I switched to Multirow Bookmarks.
I hope you can fix this Win10-related bug. I actually like your addon better than Roomy Bookmarks. Would however be nice if you could add the option "very small" to bookmark spacing in the settings. I prefer to have the favicons more squeezed together rather than having to use too many rows.
Thanks in advance, I will upgrade this to 5* immediately once that Win10-bug is fixed!
Need to disable 'Show at Bottom' under Firefox Customize Menu Rated 4 out of 5 stars
For me, the MultiRow Bookmarks Toolbar items do not appear unless I go into the Firefox settings menu, and at the bottom there's a button for 'Customize'. Then at the bottom of the screen there's 'Show/Hide Toolbars'. In there, you have to uncheck 'Multirow Bottom Bar'. Not sure why it's forcing me to do this each time I open Firefox, but other than that works well.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9).

Multirow Bookmarks Plus Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Outstanding addon WHEN IT WORKS! The maximum number of rows has NOT exceeded 3 for a VERY LONG TIME. Used to be virtually unlimited -- I used six rows before it stopped working. Would be the BEST addon if this could only be fixedThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
When are your add-on actually going to start working? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Before all the updates, best add-on on the planet! Now this add-on is completely ineffective! So much potential, but nothing! :-(This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Drag and drop links not working Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This is adware.
I was not able to drag and drop links from the addressbar onto the link bar :( not very helpful.
Uninstalled, considering old version
no Rated 1 out of 5 stars
non funziona piuThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1-signed).
Misleading, apparent adware. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Be warned of things the developer doesn't show in the screenshots. After I installed, my option was "Enable Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar Plus with sponsored links". That is not what the developer's screenshots show. Uninstalled immediately.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1-signed).

Not dragged bookmarks Rated 3 out of 5 stars
After you install this add-on came the next problem: I can not drag me to the right tab in a folder with bookmarks. If you disable addition, everything works. Please make sure that you can add Active Tabs by simply dragging.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1-signed).
Fixed Rated 5 out of 5 stars
No idea why these guys haven't said so here or published an update yet but they fixed the problems a few weeks ago. You can find the link to the beta fix on their facebook pageThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1-signed).
Great add on until recently, why no drag and drop anymore?? Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Really useful until recently, now drag and drop bookmarks stopped working. Are we expecting this to be looked at? Will stick with it if yes, finding alternative if no.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1-signed).
drag and drop is still buggy but row issues can be fixed now Rated 5 out of 5 stars
drag & drop is still buggy but you can fix row issues by downloading the add-on from its official websiteThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Drag and Drop Gone with Update 36 for Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar PLUS Rated 3 out of 5 stars
The Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar Plus is a very good tool with the exception of it not being updated when Firefox is updated. I was missing some rows but this download location brought them back http://multirowbookmarkstoolbar.com/ (re-downloading will not bother your current bookmarks).
Also, as an alternative to drag and drop being gone for now, I copy the URL and click the drop down folder and paste anywhere in the folder. It shows up just like drag and drop with a little more work. Hopefully a FIX will be coming soon. I can see by looking at the dates of the other posts it's been too long already.
