Upper lines showing File, Edit etc, gone

Posted

Had to "restore to 2 days earlier" to get rid of music add-on, but found that top line showing "file, edit, tools, etc also disappeared. What did I do wrong? How do I get them back? Also "Back" arrow. Presently only shows "Firefox - Mozilla Firefox" (top line) and bars on next line showing site shown on screen. Center of page shows "google search". Help?

Hello John.

It's called the Menu Bar.

Press ALT or F10 in your keyboard to make the Menu Bar temporarily visible. If you want it to be permanently visible, go into View > Toolbars > Menu Bar, or right-click the Navigation Toolbar (the Reload button, for example) and select Menu Bar.

If this doesn't help, right-click the navigation toolbar, select Customize... and click Restore Default Set. If it doesn't appear right away, try pressing ALT or F10. You can go into View > Toolbars > Menu Bar to make it permanently visible, or right-click the Navigation Toolbar and select Menu Bar.

If none of this helps, you may be having a problem with some Firefox add-on that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Try disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal.
