Taskbar Keeps Disappearing!

Whenever I use firefox my taskbar disappears. Using windows 7. I saw a few other posts about this, but most of them suggested playing around with full screen. It's not enabled. I press it and taskbar briefly appears for a second or two and goes away again. Another option suggested refreshing the profile thing, but based on those instructions, I can't find out how to get there?

If this is the Windows taskbar at the bottom of the screen it is a Windows issue. Probably all you need to do is use the option to lock the taskbar. See:

Please let us know, if that works. Or if it is some other problem please try to give a bit more detail, and possibly a screenshot.

If you are asking about the menu bar at the top this is shown briefly if you use the Alt key. The fullscreen view is toggled by using the F11 key. Note also that many options are now available from the Firefox menu button - top right.

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.
