I can't find the toolbar with the home icon, file, tools links,etc


The toolbar line at the top of the page that usually has all the links to "file, edit, restore, home,etc., is gone, and I can't get my Mozilla start page to initiate, it's using the start page called "Ask" - what to do?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I clicked on the Forefox icon for my internet access

For details of how to restore the menus, see What happened to the File, Edit, and View menus?.

Once the menus are restored, you should be able to set the home page to one of your choosing, for details see How to set the home page.
