Links Bar has Vanished . . .


J. Timothy

and in its place, is a label that says "Favorites". My links had been on the
toolbar just to the right of the "go" button and the address bar. However,
now in its place is just a label, which says favorites NOT links!. When you
press on it, nothing at all happens and the links are not accessible.
However, the links ARE listed under the Favorites panel to the left which
opens up by pressing the "Star" Icon (the same area in which you can
Organize and Add favorites). When I right-click on the toolbar, or press
"View" and select the toolbars which I want to appear, the 'links' toolbar
is checked, but it is nowhere to be seen. And why is that non-functional
label of favorites replacing it? Any and all help will be greatly
appreciated. I am running IE 6.0 SP2, Win XP SP2 Home Edition.
