How do I recover my address bar and toolbar?

Posted

How do I recover my address bar and toolbar? I don't have a place to type in the URL or don't have the File, Edit, View, Options drop-down menus.

Chosen solution

Menu Bar (File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Help)

Press ALT+ V T M on your keyboard. This should restore the menu bar (Firefox 3.6)

Other toolbars

View|Toolbars|Select the desired Toolbar

Other steps to try

If you missing specific icons (ex. The back arrow,) try restoring the default set by going to View|Toolbars|Customize| Restore Default Set

Safe Mode

You May need to reset toolbars and controls via Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode Make sure you completely close Firefox first. When you get to the Safe Mode window, select Reset toolbars and controls and then Make Changes and Restart.

Hope this helps!
