In the past I could display the imported layers in the GRASS toolbox within QGIS. This was possible under the tab "Browser" as you see in the image. enter image description here

Lately I'm missing this tab. The QGIS version is 2.12.1 and the GRASS version 6. But I had the same issue with older QGIS versions.

How can I bring back the browser tab or what alternative option do I have to display the available layers of the mapset?

    It is the new GRASS plugin. You need to open first a Location and then you can use the browser.

  • Unfortunately not. In the Toolbox there is nothing and in the QGIS Browser I also can't see anything. Should it look like the above?

The GRASS Location Browser has been removed in the latest versions of QGIS along with tools related to adding layers. A progress report can be seen here:
