Hi jim,

Try View -> Toolbars -> Navigation Bar, and/or View -> Toolbars -> Customize, and Restore Default Set in the dialog that appears.

If the menu bar isn't visible either, press Alt, then V, T, M to make it stay.

If that doesn't work, you can reset the toolbar customizations, using the Reset toolbars and controls option in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode dialog with the Make changes and Restart option: https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode#Safe_Mode_window
