Navigation bar disappeared

Posted

Today I upgraded to Firefox 3.6.3 and it had a navigation bar. Now it's gone. No File, Edit, View, Help, Bookmarks, nothing.

Operating system

Vista

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!

  • The "X" button. This button stops loading the current page
  • The back and forward buttons. This buttons allow you to navigate back and forth between your previously visited page
