Hi ramimizrahi

if you only lost the Search bar see in the above AliceWyman reply the "Search bar - Easily choose your favorite search engine" (the Moving or removing the Search bar session)

if you lost the Navigation toolbar go from View > Toolbars > CHECK Navigation toolbar [v].

thank you

Is your Search Bar or the entire Navigation Toobar missing? Is there a problem with your Firefox homepage ? I don't understand the problem.

The Navigation Toolbar contains your web site navigation buttons, the Location Bar, the Search Bar, the Home button and the Bookmarks button. The Search Bar is shown outlined in red here on Mac OS.

The default Firefox homepage is the about:home Firefox Start Page. It will show a large Google search box and a "Restore Previous Session" button (along with other buttons) at the bottom... as shown here on Mac OS.

See these articles for more information:

P.S. It might also help if you could create a screenshot of the page you see when you first open Firefox, by following the guide mentioned at How do I create a screenshot of my problem?. Once you've done this, attach the saved screenshot file to your forum post by clicking the Browse... button below the Post a reply box. This will help us to visualize the problem.
