Chosen solution

Menu Bar (File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Help)

Press ALT+ V T M (CTRL+V T M on Macs) on your keyboard. This should restore the menu bar (Firefox 3.6)

Other toolbars

View|Toolbars|Select the desired Toolbar

Other steps to try

Try restoring the default set by going to View|Toolbars|Customize| Restore Default Set. This will put the toolbars back in the default place

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.
