I can see the menu bar, it's the toolbars that I installed before that are missing such as the norton toolbar and the my points toolbar. Firefox will not let me download them again because of some error. I have updated java and the problem still exists.

Can't see the Menu Bar (File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Help)? Turning the Menu Bar on and off is a new feature in version 3.6. (~~red:Linux & OSX see~~: What happened to the File, Edit, and View menus? ) Windows Method 1. Hold down the key and press the following letters in this exact order: V T M then release the key Windows Method 2. Tap once on the F10 key, while the Menu bar is visible, choose "View > Toolbars", click "Menu Bar" so that a check mark is placed next to Menu Bar Windows Method 3. Tap once and release the key. The Menu Bar will be displayed; then choose ~~red:V~~iew > ~~red:T~~oolbars and click on ~~red:M~~enu Bar so that a check mark is placed next to Menu Bar The Menu Bar should now be displayed permanently, unless you turn it off again using View > Toolbars. Check mark = displayed, NO check mark = not displayed. See:

Did you look at the section Navigation Toolbar, Bookmarks Toolbar and other Toolbars ?

"will not let me download them again because of some error" Would you care to share the exact wording of the error? That may help find a solution!

"I have updated java and the problem still exists" Java is just something you needed to update. Hence, the separate heading Other Issues.

I had IE and I downloaded Advanced Toolbar. I want it again, but I can't import it. When I download it again, it won't show up on my home page. It also won't show up on the toolbar list in the "view" section of the menu bar.
