I right-clicked the Tool Bar, then "un-ticked" the option to show the Tool Bar and the Address Bar. Afterward, when I right-clicked to restore both bars, the option to do so no longer appeared upon right-clicking. I even removed Firefox and reinstalled it. That did not fix the problem. I want these bars back on my window. What can I do to restore them?

I initially thought that my laptop froze up, but this was not the case. I do not want to have to uninstall, I am in school and have a lot of bookmarks that are vital to my learning, to lose those would be detrimental to my education. Can anyone help with this malfunction?

I am having trouble installing a few add-ons. It started when I tried to install the McAfee Site Advisor, and I figured "Ok, maybe it's just a problem with that" and let it be. I didn't know why it had worked on the family PC but not my laptop, but I let it slide. Just recently however, I was unable to install the Amazon Add-on "wishlist button" OR the "Wishlist toolbar." I even went with the 1.3 one that is supposed to be compatible with the new firefox versions, and still nothing.
