I have closed the toolbars and navigation bar by mistake and do not see any way to re-open them. I have absolutely nothing at the top of the page except the blue mozilla border. HELP!!

Posted

The Mozilla help refers to the tool bars to reset the tool bars. I dont see anything and cannot find anything by right clicking anywhere on the page.
