I have lost the orange firefox tab (top left) and don't know how to recover it

Posted

I'm not very computer literate, and I was trying to figure out how to manually update my computer. I was reading instructions, and then clicked on a drop-down menu that said 'full screen' (I think), and then the orange "firefox' tab disappeared, and I have no idea how to recover it to my desktop. THANKS for any help.

Full Screen Mode:

  • the F11 key toggles Full Screen Mode on and off
  • ALT+V+F will toggle Full Screen Mode on and off
  • when in Full Screen Mode, move your cursor to the top edge of the screen, right-click in the blank area on one of the toolbars that slide down and choose "Exit Full Screen Mode"
