firefox add-on not showing in toolbar extensions

Here is a quick fix for Firefox extension shortcuts not showing in the browser toolbar. By following these simple instructions below, you are ready to restore and access your favorite firefox add-ons with a single pin click right within your browser.

If suddenly your Firefox browser goes messy to the extent of hiding your favorite extensions for example, the video downloadhelper, adblock, ublock origin, twitch, VPN, 1password, or tampermonkey add-on, you need not worry if you can’t find them provided they are installed and activated.

The same happened to me in the past but I was able to re-pin my Firefox extension shortcuts easily. For as long as the add-on remains installed in your browser, you can restore it from where it’s hidden and pin t back to where you want to see it.
