Version 9.0.1 opens to a Google page, with no Firefox menu options available and no obvious way to access and change. Firefox is set as the default browser. Uninstalled and reinstalled several times - same result. Version 8 was fine.

When installed, the Firefox icon opens a Google web browser page which has no tool bar or navigation buttons; it does not go to Firefox with Google as the search tool. There does not seem to be any way to get to Firefox.

You may be in Full Screen mode; press the F11 key to toggle Full Screen on or off.

If that does not solve the problem, be sure the Navigation Toolbar is checked (checked=displayed; un-checked=not displayed)

Firefox 4+ versions use a new build-in home page named about:home with a Google search bar on it (no internet access needed to load that page).
That about:home page only shows some snippets and has a button to restore the previous session if applicable.

If you want a home page with extras then set another page as the home page like www.google.com as used in Firefox 3 versions or the iGoogle site ([www.google.com/ig]).
