About 30 minutes ago, I clicked on the update Firefox button (3.6.6) I clicked restart when the update was finished. The new Firefox page DOES NOT display a window to enter a URL address or any of my frequently accessed URLs that I choose from. I rebooted by laptop, but Firefox page still does not display a window to enter a URL or to choose from my frequently used site urls.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I updated today 7/16 Friday (Taunton, MA) about 3:30 p.m.

Chosen solution

  • If, on Windows, in Firefox 3.6 the menu bar is hidden then press and hold the Alt key down or press F10, that should make the "Menu Bar" appear
  • Go to "View > Toolbars" and check-mark "Menu Bar" with a click on it to make that permanent. See Restore the Menu bar in Firefox).
  • Make sure that you have the "Navigation Toolbar" and the "Bookmarks Toolbar" visible: "View > Toolbars"
  • If items are missing then see if you can find them in the "View > Toolbars > Customize" window
  • If you see the item in the Customize window then drag it back from the Customize window to one of the toolbars.
  • If, in "View > Toolbars > Customize", you do not see that item then click the "Restore Default Set" button
