"navigation bar": See Navigation Toolbar below. "view, tools, etc": That's the Menu Bar; see below.

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:

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Toolbar_customization#Restoring_missing_menu_or_other_toolbars Navigation Toolbar, Bookmarks Toolbar and other Toolbars under View > Toolbars. Clicking on one of them will place a check mark (display) or remove the check mark (not displayed). To display the Status Bar, View, then click Status bar to place a check mark (display) or remove the check mark (not displayed). Full Screen mode http://kb.mozillazine.org/Netbooks#Full_screen

I really did not understand the first set of instruction - I am not sure of what key should be held down, but I like the option of clicking F10. It worked the first time that I tried it. I was able learn a new trick easily and quickly. Thank you so much this was very helpful.

Hit the alt key go to "view">"Toolbars" make sure Navigation Toolbar is checked.

You can use the same method to make sure your "Menu Bar" is activated.
