I added a session saver add on and my address bar disappeared! Help!
I can't search at all and I can't use foxfire until this is fixed. I don't even have a back button and my search window (to the right) went away. I looked through and selected all the options on "view--toolbars" and that didn't work. How can I get them back?
Yes, or I could use google crome that has a session saver that works. Thank you for trying to help. I did get back to a place that I can use foxfire. Thanks!Read this answer in context 👍 1

I updated, but I can't get to the reset option because I don't have that little orange tab in the upper left. The problem is still there.
Ok, please close Firefox, then hold down the shift key while you open it again. Click Reset Firefox in the dialog box that appears
Ok, that got the important stuff back (address bar, refresh button, etc.)--thank you! But I seem to have lost that session saver add on. Is that just not an option? I do a lot of academic research and it would really help me to be able to save a session. Any advice?
you could right-click on the tab-bar and bookmark all open tabs instead. this will create a special bookmark folder with all open tabs inside. you can later return to all of these sites by middle-clicking this bookmarks folder (or right-click on it & choose open all in tabs).
You can check if you still have the XML files of the default search engines including Google in the searchplugins folder in Firefox program folder.
If not then you need to reinstall Firefox.
Try to delete the search.json file and a possible search.sqlite file in the Firefox profile folder.
Firefox will rebuild the search.json file from the default search engines in the searchplugins folder in the Firefox program folder and the searchplugins folder in the Firefox profile folder.
You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:
