Do you have the Navigation Toolbar visible with the "3-bar" Firefox menu button or the Menu bar and access the File menu via "Alt+F"  ?

Are you sure that you didn't switch to Full Screen mode ?

Make sure Firefox isn't set to run in Full Screen mode (press F11 or Fn + F11 to toggle; Mac: Command+Shift+F).

When you are in Full Screen mode, hover the mouse to the top of the screen to make the Navigation Toolbar and Tab bar appear. Right-click empty space on a toolbar to find "Exit Full Screen mode" and "Hide toolbars".

You can use one of these to leave Full Screen mode:

  • press the F11 key
  • click the Maximize button at the right end of the Tab bar
  • click the Full Screen button in the "3-bar" Firefox menu button drop-down list
