Firefox is not the selected application

Your Mac will always display the menu bar for the program that's currently selected. Look at the name next to the Apple menu 7fbbe94f1e8c1f2d1f6ea6dd93c1901d-1266954982-393-1.png in the top left corner of your screen.

Fix corrupted toolbars and controls

If the file storing your toolbar information has become corrupt, you can use the Refresh Firefox feature to restore the default toolbar settings and controls.

Note: When using the refresh feature, your bookmarks, browsing history, open tabs, windows, passwords, cookies and web form auto-fill information will be saved. However, your extensions and themes will be removed and your preferences will be reset. Learn more.
  1. Click this Refresh Firefox button directly, if you are viewing this page in Firefox.
    This won't work if you are using a different browser or on a mobile device.
  2. To continue, click Refresh Firefox in the confirmation window that opens.
  3. Firefox will close to refresh itself. When finished, a window will list your imported information. Click Finish and Firefox will open.

Note: There's also a Refresh Firefox button in the Firefox Safe Mode window, if you can't start Firefox normally. If you are unable to find the Refresh Firefox button on your version of Firefox, you can also do a manual refresh by creating a new profile. See instructions on how to create a new profile.
