You can still use/see the Menu Bar (File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Help) if you prefer it:

  • Temporarily display the Menu Bar: press the ALT key for the F10 key and make your selections from the temporarily displayed Menu Bar
  • Toggle between the Menu Bar and Firefox button. Do one of the following:
    • NOTE:
      • Menu Bar checked = Menu Bar on, Firefox button off
      • Menu Bar un-checked = Menu Bar off, Firefox button on
    • keyboard shortcut: HOLD the ALT key while pressing the letters VTM on your keyboard
    • Using the Menu Bar: click View > Toolbars, click Menu Bar
    • Using the Firefox Button: click Firefox Button > Options, click Menu Bar
    • right-click on an empty space in one of the toolbars, click Menu Bar

This did not help at all. I have lost the top toolbar for Firefox. Haven't tried starting in safe mode - would that help, and if so, what do i do next???

I never received a reply on my question concerning video's. I have problems watching video's like Grey's Anatomy and some other t.v. shows. They keep stopping and going and stalling but never just a easy watch thru. What can I do to be able to watch one in peace? Carolee
