my navigation bar was disabled via a right click to make more space on the screen. Now I cannot retrieve it or any other toolbars. I cannot navigate the web, nor look into any bookmarks, files, tools, anything and no ammount of "options" tinkering is helping. what should I do so that I can freely browse again?

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 Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot 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!
