Cannot find TOOLS


I have 2 separate issues that I am having problems with-one being and online game and one being wanting to UNinstall the add on I have put on my PC. Both issues are requiring me to use the "tools" bar and I CANNOT find it!! I have looked my page over completely and there is NOTHING that says "TOOLS" PLEASE help me...I know I'm not completely ignorant here! lol I am pretty sure I have already upgraded to FF8. At the top, under addy bar, I have Highlight-Change Design-+Add Buttons and below that, I have Most Visited-Getting Started-Latest Headlines. Of course I have my "Bookmarks" as well. THAT IS IT!!! I would appreciate your help very much! Thank you!!

If the menu bar is hidden then press the F10 key or tap the Alt key, that should make the menu bar appear.

  • Go to "View > Toolbars" and check-mark "Menu Bar" with a click if you want to make that permanent


Make sure that toolbars like the "Navigation Toolbar" and the "Bookmarks Toolbar" are visible: "View > Toolbars"
