my firefox toolbar disappeared and I can't do what the solutions say because I don't have a back arrow, file button, tool button, bookmark button, help button, or navagation bar, so how do I get my toolbar back?
How do I restore my firefox toolbar? It was my main toolbar. My other one is google. And then another site tried to install a toolbar that I did not want. When I unchecked to get rid of it, apparently I unchecked the firefox toolbar by accident. I don't know if that's what happened for sure, but I'm guessing that's what happened.

Don't forget the Magic 'ALT' key - that restores the menu line if you blew that away too. This is where you will find the 'File' 'Edit' 'View,' etc. Tabs that will get you started. Then pick the 'View' button and a drop down list will get your tool bars back. Hope this helps.
Thank you so much for this solution to use the 'ALT ' key. I appreciate that you took the time to post here! This fixed my problem!
Brilliant. Thank you! Sorted immediately. I tried out Yahoo toolbar and couldn't uninstall it. Yahoo help totally unhelpful. Finally deleted via Firefox help. But no toolbar. Reinstalled my toolbar via you!!
I had the same problem. Here is what I did: Put cursor on top of the page, right click, uncheck "Hide the toolbar", check "Exit full-screen".
