My custom toolbar buttons and settings have disappeared, no amount of refreshing the toolbar after I sign in is bringing them back. Fix this
I used to be able to sign in to Yahoo and then hit refresh toolbar to bring up my custom URL buttons and all my other button choices and
settings. Now all those settings have been apparently lost by Yahoo.

If you are using the Yahoo Toolbar on Firefox, click the Gear button on the far right and select 'Edit Settings' from the dropdown. There you will see 'Save my layout and settings' and choose 'To my Yahoo account' instead of 'To my computer only'
That way your button settings should be preserved whenever you log in to your Yahoo account.
Also just FYI if you ever need to delete/add or rearrange buttons on the toolbar layout, you can click the gear icon on the right side of the toolbar and click 'Edit Toolbar'. This will take you to the Edit Page and here under 'My Toolbar Buttons' section you will see the current layout of your toolbar. You can click the 'X' button on the left side and red 'X' marks will show up underneath the buttons. After this you can just click on a button and it will get deleted from your toolbar.
If you want add other buttons, you can scroll down further on the page and see what buttons are available for adding (or removing as well). To see all buttons available, click 'All Apps' under the 'Categories' section.
Hope this helps.
Let us know if it works or doesn't work

toolbar icons keep changing size.
I go to setting and there is no place to "save" changes
MY ZOOM APP HAS BEEN DELETED,PLEASE GET IT BACK.
Same here! Not only does it loose my custom settings, I can't right click on it to open them in another tab. Yahoo's programmers and techs must have limited abilities, because this has been going on for a few years.

Same here, and this isn't the first time. Sigh.... It's exasperating. What's going on? Please replace my custom buttons pdq - they were saved to my Yahoo account, so it shouldn't be a problem. Thank you.
Same problem here. It is quite disappointing to see all of these people have the same problem, but no response. At least acknowledge us...
well whats the fix. we all complain about it but where is the fix?
My yahoo toolbar was back at default settings this morning on both of my computers. Tried everything I could think of to get my custom settings back, but to no avail. Not very happy.
I commented elsewhere and then found this more relevant post.
I logged in yesterday, 4/22/15, and my toolbar was all default buttons. I had been logged out so I logged in, tried refreshing, but nothing changed. It was up to date for 220.127.116.1150226051211 but I reloaded it anyway. Nothing. I updated Firefox to 37.0.2. Same. At least my bookmarks are there but I used my buttons more. Bring them back!
In my searching, I find the same question dated various years past. Here we are again!
This just happened to my toolbar. I had all my icons there a second ago and then they were gone. Now, I have to redo it and I don't remember all of the icons I had on there. I tried refreshing it and sign out then back and and nothing!!
Where did my toolbar go? my mom and I are having the same problem. She tried to re download and set up again her toolbar and nothing changed. All we are getting is the "Yahoo junk" bookmarks as we call them instead of the ones that we have chosen and use on a regular basis. Fox this NOW!! And stop changing it!
same here. Also, I had set the settings "to my account only" but now they are set (by whom??) "to my computer only". Is there a way I can find all my toolbar icons somewhere on my computer?
I tried to customize my tool and it just screws up and it loses all my saves and when I try to do it again it does it again it just doesn't work
Firefox just did an upgrade. All of my entries in Yahoo bookmarks are gone. Just fix it!
There are now 45 comments/complaints and I dont see ONE answer from the administration!!!
Where is my original toolbar, lots of buttons gone missing, WHY?
Maeve Finn commented
When I go to my toolbar settings . There is nothing to rearrange ! Where are my buttons ? Why can't I add a page to my toolbar ? Nothing is working right !!!
I do not want Yahoo toolbar. Please take it away. Thank you.
This is so unacceptable, I am sick and tired of constantly fixing the toolbar, no reason to have it anymore if it wont stay the same....
Where is Yahoo's answers?????????????Since they made it so we can't even set up our toolbars after they took/or changed our icons. About to switch.
