Hm OK, I have an idea of what may have happened. Before closing the old
instance of firefox, I asked for the bookmarks manager window, and it
never showed up. Then I closed firefox and restarted it: see previous
screenshot. I appears that the old instance of firefox has never been
closed, and I've found a super-tiny window in a corner of my desktop:
the bookmarks manager window has opened up in a strange way (a 2-pixel
wide title bar only). Killed firefox, started it again, now things look
normal. Maybe upgrading to while an instance of firefox
was running has been the issue?
