I have installed Firefox on a new computer running Win8 but cannot find a URL address bar and instead have to go to sites via Google

I installed Firefox on a new computer running Windows 8. Everything seems to be there except the Address bar. So, to access a website I have to enter the url in the Google search box. Once I reach the desired site I add it to bookmarks or it adds itself to Most Visited.

That brings up another issue: every time I visit a site it adds to Most Visited. That kind of defeats the purpose of that feature if everything you visit (including some password-protected pages) ends up on that list. We are deleting as we go the ones we don't want there.
