See if it is on the Customize Toolbar window. If so, while the Customize Toolbar window is open, drag it to the location you want it. To open the Customize Toolbar window, do one of the following:

  • click Firefox button > Options > Toolbar Layout
  • using the Menu Bar: View > Toolbars > Custonize
  • HOLD down the ALT key while pressing the keyboard letters VTC
  • right-click on a blank space on a toolbar or at the end of the Tab Bar and choose "Customize".

If "Search" is not on the Customize Toolbar window, click "Restore Default Set" at the bottom of the Customize Toolbar window and look again.

You need to update the following. The Plugin version(s) shown below was/were submitted with your question and is/are out of date.

  1. Check your plugin versions on either of the following links':
  2. Update Shockwave for Director
    • NOTE: this is not the same as Shockwave Flash; this installs the Shockwave Player.
    • Use Firefox to download and SAVE the installer to your hard drive from the link in the article below (Desktop is a good place so you can find it).
    • When the download is complete, exit Firefox (File > Exit)
