Toolbar above address line has disappeared (File, Edit, View, etc.)

Noticed that the toolbar above the address line on my Firefox home page has disappeared.....the line with "File, Edit, View, History", etc.

Can't figure out how to get it back....without it, I'll just go back to IE.

Re: Toolbar above address line has disappeared (File, Edit, View, etc.)

In Firefox 3.6 and later on Windows you can hide the "Menu Bar" via "View > Toolbars" or via the right-click context menu on a toolbar.
Press F10 or press and hold the Alt key down to bring up the "Menu Bar" temporarily.
Go to "View > Toolbars" or right-click the "Menu Bar" or press Alt+V T to select which toolbars to show or hide (click on an entry to toggle the state).

This solution works, but apparently only temporarily. The menu toolbar disappears on a regular basis. What could be causing this?

If you do not keep the customization then you may have a problem with the file localstore.rdf in the Firefox Profile Folder
