I just upgraded to Firefox 3.0, and see the "Most Visited" button in the toolbar. I don't want this there. My toolbar is busy enough as it is, and I prefer simplicity really... Going to "Customize" doesn't allow me to remove this though. Is there a trick or something in the options that I am not seeing? I would really appreciate some help, as I don't want this there...

Thanks Again,

Did you try right-clicking on it and selecting delete?

Less drastic solution:

Bookmarks | Bookmarks Toolbar
Drag Most Visited out of this folder and drop it somewhere else in your bookmarks list.

Oh my gosh, thank you so much. I thought this would work like the Customize, but I guess this isn't a button on the toolbar? Oh well, I'm just glad it's gone.

Thanks Again for your help.

is there a way to recreate this folder after you've deleted? without using undo that is.

Ok, so I deleted this immediately on installing, and now i want it back!

How can I get it back?

I found the answer after just a bit more digging. Thanks to the user that posted this solution. See the below link for fix.

You can also right click somewhere else on your toolbar & then remove the check mark beside "Bookmarks Toolbar". That will make it not show up.

I have Firefox v3.07. Their is an icon stuck on my most visited toolbar. It will not delete. Right clicking > properties shows nothing.
How can I remove this useless icon. I believe it installed itself onto my toolbar. What file do I need to delete

My problem is the exact opposite: there are sites I have to visit daily, most times more than twice daily, but these do not show up in my Most Visited. Is there anything I can do to make them show up?

browser.places.smartBookmarksVersion is always 2 starting from some version. And no matter how you set it, it returns to "2" upon restarting, tested with clean profile on Firefox 3.7a1

That should of course happen because setting the pref to 0 will force Firefox to restore (add) a new set of default smart bookmarks.
So if that pref would stay at 0 then you get an extra set with every start.
