Make sure that you do not run Firefox in full screen mode (press F11 or Fn + F11 to toggle; Mac: Command+Shift+F).
If you are in full screen mode then hover the mouse to the top of the screen to make the Navigation Toolbar and Tab bar appear. Click the Maximize button (top right corner of the Navigation Toolbar) to leave full screen mode or right-click empty space on a toolbar and choose "Exit Full Screen Mode" or press the F11 key.
COR-EL, Thank you for your response. While in Facebook, i went to full screen to look at a picture. I think that's what caused the problem. But hovering at the top of screen only brings back (file, edit, view, history, bookmarks, tools, & help). I can see the tabs though. When i click Max. the screen gets smaller and still does not show my Toolbars. There isn't an empty Toolbar space to click on. But i tried right clicking the areas i could but still no Toolbars, nor a " Exit Full Screen Mode" notice. Pressing F11 did not work either. UGG Help.
Can you launch a new window (Ctrl+n for a normal window, Ctrl+Shift+p for a private window) that has the usual complement of toolbars? If a new window also is missing bars, try using the View menu > Toolbars list to restore them. If the classic menu bar is not displayed, usually tapping the Alt key or the F10 key will show it temporarily.
You should get the toolbar menu if you right-click on empty space on the tab bar.
If you are not in full screen mode then pressing F10 or holding down the Alt key should bring up the menu bar. There you can look in View > toolbars to see which toolbars have a check-mark to indicate that they are visible.
You can check for problems caused by a corrupted localstore.rdf file.
I have the Menu bar and my Favorites bar on my Home Page. But not on this page. Going to the view and checking the tools on does not bring them back.
I have lost my start/task bar in the Windows screen even before launching Firefox. I cannot get to Windows Help or System Restore or do a file search. I have a feeling I have picked up some terrible malware that has hijacked my IE and Windows. I ran a couple of malware scans and quarantined any malicious files that were found, but still no Windows start/search bar. I tried to launch it from the control panel and no luck there either. HELP!
Hi goodgirl0130, do you see your desktop? If not, and your keyboard has the "window" key, hold down that key and tap the D key to show the desktop. (The M key may also work.)
If the Task Bar is missing from your desktop, move your mouse all the way to the bottom of the screen to make sure it isn't set to hide automatically. If the taskbar slides up when you do that, right-click it and choose Properties. Then uncheck the box for Auto-hide the tasbar.
If that doesn't help, I suggest posting on a Windows forum for suggestions. For example: http://windowssecrets.com/forums/
Unfortunately, my keyboard does not have the Windows button. Going all the way to the bottom of the screen doesn't bring it into view either. I have a large screen and there may be a problem with my monitor setting. I will check that and go to the windows site. Thanks!
