The aforementioned hotbar doesn't work on mobile devices. I was using an iPhone 6 to access my site (which doesn't have a paid custom mobile template set in place) and after one of the recent updates I could no longer see that hotbar or use it from anywhere within my site. Perhaps mentioning that in your thread could prevent more confusion in the future.
I've forwarded this to the team, and I'll also make sure to mention it. ) It wasn't something I was actually aware of. Thanks!
