You don't need to reset the browser if you make option changes. All you need to do is close Firefox.

If you make an error with the toolbar settings, Type about:customizing<enter> in the address bar. There is a Restore Defaults button at the bottom middle.

Is there another reason for wanting to do a reset?

Hit the Alt key to temporarily reveal the Menu Bar which has the Help menu. F10 will also work for that.
