The URL BAR Disappeared

Posted

The recent Firefox upgrade offered an option to customize the toolbar. After customizing the toolbar, I noticed that it was confusing and distracting. I decided to remove the toolbar by right clicing and selecting something ? that removed the bar. Unfortunately, I lost the URL bar as well. So now I can't navigate using Firefox. This happens every time I open the program. I tried un-installing and re-installing Firefox but it picked up the same settings. I'm hoping there is an easy fix to this as it seems like an obvious functionality issue. Does any one know of a way to bring back the URL bar??? I hate Explorer!!!!
