After the update, I went to my bookmarks and saw that they were no longer there.  I'm not one to use the sidebar, it's a bit IE-ish and I never liked using that browser at all.  When I click the bookmarks button and the drop down menu opens there are no bookmark folders to slide out when I hover over them with my mouse.  It is a great feature, and one I enjoy using.

A second problem with bookmarks button - there are two, as you know.  One you use for the sidebar - which I usually Customize/remove and replace with the second - and the second with the slide out bookmarks I describe above.  That button shouldn't have words beside it when I have "Icons Only" selected.  Thought you should know.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on the bar and go to Customize
2. Find the second bookmarks icon and drag it to a spot by the bookmark bar.
3. If you have many bookmarks, you will not see them.  But when you click the sidebar bookmark button, you will
Actual Results:  
There were no bookmarks in the slide-out menu, but were in the sidebar.

Expected Results:  
My bookmarks should have been there.
first, the 2 buttons are different even if they have the same label (bug 599700).
Second, it's possible you have some add-on that is preventing bookmarks from appear under the new button that replaces bookmarks menu, then you should try safe mode.

But this works for me

I tried the Safe Mode, and it worked like a charm.  The button lost the words beside it. And I didn't check the shut off Add-Ons option.  When I went back to normal mode it returned.  Any suggestions?

Found the problem.  I used the Bookmarks Tool Bar.  It's my primary bookmark location.  When I turn it on, the bookmark button drops down to that and says "Bookmarks" beside it.  Is there a way to delete the word "Bookmarks"?

no, not yet, there is bug 614567 covering that request though.
