Perhaps it was after one of the updates but I can't see an address bar (location bar) at the top of my webpages. I can't type in a web address! If I want to go back a page I have to hit the "back space" button on my keyboard because there is no back or forward arrow as there normally is (or was) at the top left part of the webpage.

Make sure that you do not run Firefox in Full Screen mode with all toolbars hidden.

  • Press F11 to toggle full screen mode (Firefox/File > Full Screen)

If the menu bar is hidden then press the F10 key or hold down the Alt key, that should make the menu bar appear.

Make sure that toolbars like the "Navigation Toolbar" and the "Bookmarks Toolbar" are visible: "View > Toolbars"

  • If items are missing then open the Customize window via "View > Toolbars > Customize" or via "Firefox > Options > Toolbar Layout" (Linux, Windows)
  • If a missing item is in the toolbar palette then drag it back from the Customize window on the toolbar
  • If you do not see an item on a toolbar and in the toolbar palette then click the "Restore Default Set" button to restore the default toolbar set up.

Thank you. I had a look in Toolbars and the Navigation Toolbar bar was disabled. I don't know how or why but it's enabled now and everything is back to normal. Cheers, Wayne

Thanks for the suggestions. I was 'messing around' trying to see what I could discover and when I went to the top right corner of my screen I found something where I did something or other (can't quite remember, sorry) and suddenly the Navigation Bar (that's what they called it there) was back. So the problem is solved, at least for now. Whew!!
