I have updated Firefox and the home button and the refresh button have disappeared. If I have been working on the internet using many web pages, I cannot hit the home button and go back to my home page. I have to close Firefox and start again. Please tell me how I reinstall the home button on the task bar and also the refresh button.

Make sure that you do not run Firefox in Full Screen mode with all toolbars hidden.

  • Press F11 to toggle full screen mode (Firefox/File > Full Screen)

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

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

  • If items are missing then open the Customize window via "View > Toolbars > Customize" or via "Firefox > Options > Toolbar Layout" (Linux, Windows)
  • If a missing item is in the toolbar palette then drag it back from the Customize window on the toolbar
  • If you do not see an item on a toolbar and in the toolbar palette then click the "Restore Default Set" button to restore the default toolbar set up.

Hi Cor-el Thanks for info but the home button and the refresh button are nowhere to be found. After the last Firefox update they disappeared. It makes it very difficult navigating the internet with no home button. I don't think I am the only one with this problem. Firefox need to reinstate the buttons onto the main tool bar where they were previously. Dianne
