    Hi -- with Firefox 4, on initially launching the program, this only makes a blank toolbar appear and disappear at first.

    You have to manually make the toolbar appear through Firefox's own menus, and then the code above works. But you have to do this every time you close and re-open firefox.

    Could you post a way to fix this?

    With Firefox 4 the above code still works. The only difference I've found is that the bookmarks toolbar is shown after a restart even if you've used the CTRL+B hotkey to hide it.
