Installed FF18, I have no 'awesome bar' (address bar) at all. Where is it ? In fact, no controls at all. No favorites, or any options whatsoever

All I get is the home page which takes up the whole screen. If I mouse up to top of screen, tabs are visible. I can add or delete new windows. But no controls or options of any kind appear.

Thanks for your reply ideato. I'm sure I did actually try that a few times, because it was obviously in full screen mode. Didn't work though. I can't check that one more time right now because the problem is on a friend's machine ( HP Pavilion DV6 laptop), and I am at home right now. I will try it again though just to be 100% certain.

I will try that again in a day or two.

Thanks again for reply, will post result ...

Gimme my computer back! Shrink Firefox back to it's original size.

   Move the pointer to the top of the screen.
   Right-click on an empty section of the Tab Strip.
   Click Exit Full Screen Mode

"Toggle Full Screen keyboard shortcut: Press the F11 key.

"Note: On computers with a compact keyboard (such as netbooks and laptops), press the fn + F11 keys
