The search bar has disappeared from the right side of the address bar. How do I replace it?

Posted

The reinstatement instructions provided for previous query two years ago are apparently not applicable to my Mac OS X 10.6.8. Help, please. I need to see my search bar to the right of the address/location bar. Thank you.

I am grateful, Wesley. Although I had been directed to the site you suggested, I had not thought to click "restore defaults," which immediately restored my search bar to its proper place. So simple but not so obvious to us Mac users over 60. Many thanks, Irene

Note that you may have accidentally removed button(s) from the Navigation Toolbar.

If you right-click a toolbar item in normal (non-customize) mode then you can remove this item from the toolbar.

  • "Remove from Toolbar" will remove this item from the Navigation Toolbar and moves it to the Customize palette ("3-bar" Firefox menu button -> Customize)
  • "Move to Menu" will move this item to the "3-bar" Firefox menu button drop-down list
  • "Move to Toolbar" in the "3-bar" Firefox menu button drop-down list will move this item to the toolbar
