When I open a new window, why does the information bar and google search disappear?
I have several tabs opened up, but go to file, New Window, and the information bar and google search disappears. There are no back or forward arrows. It is just a blank bar with a bookmarks drop down.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:
- Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
- Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
- Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
- Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
